As a slight reprieve from the speed on the track, Ducati Island also featured a Ducati Bocce Ball court was built and decorated in a special tricolore paint scheme. The Italian Heritage Society of Indiana was on hand for everyone wanted to play a game, learn the rules, or needed an extra Bocce partner. Topeka AMA double-winner Larry Pegram was also on the Island all weekend interacting with fans- a rare opportunity to spend a day with a factory Superbike rider. For those watching the races; the Ducati grandstands had the best view of the track, including corners 1-4 and a view of the big screen- ensuring not a moment of the action was missed.Ducatisti also showed their charitable side, where a silent auction held for the Make-A-Wish Foundation raised $13,000. The auction featured Ducati memorabilia spanning back several decades; including some normally "unobtainium" items such as Desmosedici GP9 body panels and a Ducati-Burton Snowboard. A few notable bids included a set of Larry Pegram’s racing leathers for $2,700 and a factory MotoGP uniform signed by Nicky Hayden for $700.Ducati Island will return to American road race circuits in 2010.
