Ducati WSBK: Checa at London MC Show

London Motorcycle Show

Having recently completed World Superbike testing at Portimao, the work continued Saturday for Althea Racing Ducati rider Carlos Checa as he attended the international London Motorcycle Show as a special guest.

Invited on to the MCN Live stage, the Spanish superbike rider was interviewed by the show’s organizers, and spoke about his successful WSBK career and expectations ahead of the 2011 racing season.

Checa then visited the Ducati stand where he was able to admire the fantastic line up of new bikes. He was also able to meet with many of his British superbike fans during the afternoon, signing autographs and posing for photographs.

Carlo Checa (Althea Ducati WSBK) says: "It was a fun afternoon. A well organized show, and although I didn’t get chance to see a lot, I can say that there was no shortage of people, despite the cold! I was happy to meet so many Ducati fans on the stand and see such innovative machines as the new Diavel."

Althea Racing thanked Ducati UK and the motorcycle show’s organizers for their support.
