Ducati 848EVO Racer Support

2011 Ducati 848 EVO

Ducati North America is excited to announce the new 848EVO Club Racing program, designed to support enthusiast club racers competing with the 848EVO Superbike in the 2011 season.

The 848EVO Club Racing program marks Ducati’s return to supporting its most dedicated club racers. This will be done via a Ducati program that includes contingency as well as special pricing in the areas of bike purchase and a dedicated race kit.

The program will support select riders committed to racing an entire season in any one of the following club race series: CCS, CMRA, CRA, USBA, WSMC, MRA, OMRRA, WMRRA and AFM.

Interested riders must submit a race resume to Ducati via their local dealer by Nov. 30. Ducati will then select up to fifteen riders based on their racing history, plans for 2011, and dedication to the brand.

Ducati will inform the chosen riders by Dec. 15, at which point they will be eligible to purchase the 848EVO and accessories at an exclusive price. The selected riders will receive the following benefits in exchange for race reports following each round:

  • $1,100 off the MSRP of any brand new 2011 848EVO Dark Superbike.
  • A special Ducati Performance “race kit” for $3,500. The kit consists of critical items which are approved for racing in all the eligible series: a Full Termignoni exhaust system with air filter and ECU, an adjustable rear ride height linkage, and a racing slipper clutch. This kit is mandatory for participation in the program.

Ducati will also reward riders for their on track success via a contingency program, which is open to any Ducati 848EVO rider in the aforementioned series. The contingency will be paid out at $700 for a race win, $300 for second place, and $150 for third position.

Interested riders may learn more about the program at ducatiusa.com, or at their local dealership where they can fill out and submit an application.
