2012 World Ducati Week Dates Announced


World Ducati Week 2012

At the International Motorcycle Show in Milan last month, Ducati not only introduced its newest superbike to the world, the 1199 Panigale, but also confirmed some very exciting news to “Ducatistis.”

This exciting news for passionate Ducati fans was the anticipated dates and location for the 2012 World Ducati Week.

The iconic motorcycle manufacture confirmed that event will be held at the famed Misano Circuit in Italy June 21-24, 2012.

World Ducati Week, first held in 1998, brings together Ducatisti from every corner of the world as they share their passion for the Italian motorcycles. But besides the motorcycles, there’s sure to be many racing personalities there also, including Valentino Rossi.

At last year’s event also held at Misano, famed Ducati riders such as Nicky Hayden, Troy Bayliss and Casey Stoner were roaming around the “Red Planet” signing autographs.

Ducati says: “The event has since attracted an ever-increasing attendance of people who enjoy the high-powered fun and community spirit of the iconicbrand, with a record-breaking attendance of 60,000 fans from 5 continents and 28 countries recorded at the last event in 2010.

“WDW2012 is sure to follow the tried and tested formula of race track events, shows, top riders, competitions and great music all combined with the incredible atmosphere created by thousands of motorcycles arriving from all around the globe.”
