K-Tech Partners with Ferracci Ducati

2011 AMA Daytona Sportbike

Orient Express of Brentwood New York, the official U.S. importer and distributor of K-Tech Suspension components from the U.K., is pleased to announce continued support of Celtic/Fast By Ferracci Racing over the 2011 AMA Pro Racing Daytona Sportbike season.

After an encouraging Daytona Sportbike test with the new Ducati 848 Evo, PJ Jacobsen is preparing his attack on the Daytona Sport Bike class with new determination and vigor.

The Celtic/FBF Racing Ducati 848 Evo Sportbike will feature full K-Tech Suspension components, including the race proven 20DDS front fork cartridges and newly released 35DDS rear shock.

Barry Gilsenan, Celtic Racing’s team owner, stated "Having K-Tech Suspension on-board the new Ducati 848 Evo motorcycles gave PJ that extra confidence to really push hard in the test. PJ spent the 2010 season working with K-Tech, and we were very pleased with the results. The 848 Evo Ducati is a new experience for PJ, and K-Tech made for an easier transition."

Tuning legend Eraldo Ferracci was quickly impressed with the K-Tech Suspension components on the Ducati.

Eraldo Ferracci says: "Every change we made was predictable and well controlled, making setup quick and smooth."

Young gun PJ Jacobsen is excited for the 2011 Daytona Sportbike season, and returned to New York to practice his skills with some ice-riding at home.
