The World Ducati Week is a pretty popular event not just for the Ducati fans but also for other bike enthusiasts residing in different parts of the world. This gathering gives an opportunity to the like-minded people to get together and enjoy the spirit of motorcycling. The 10th edition of the World Ducati Week ended on 22nd July 2018 and it set a new record. Any guesses what it could be?
The 2018 World Ducati Week witnessed the highest number of attendance in its lifetime. Yes, that’s correct. It has been reported that more than 90,000 people attended the three-day event in Misano, Italy. The exact count of the attendance is 91,596. This number breaks the previous one of 81,000 attendees which became a part of the 2016 World Ducati Week.
This year’s WDW had to be a special one because of many reasons. One of them was the “Race of Champions”. It featured 12 Ducati MotoGP and SBK Champions competing on the Misano circuit, riding the Ducati Panigale V4 S, specially prepared with racing configuration and customized liveries.
Another interesting part of the WDW was the display of the Panigale and the Multistrada Experience featuring Carlin Dunne’s Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak, winner of the Pikes Peak 2018.
With each passing edition, the World Ducati Week is seeing a growth in the total number of visitors. It was crazy this year, and we’re expecting to see even much more attendees in the next 11th edition of the WDW.
