Ducati Grandstands Set for 1199 Panigale RS13 SBK Debut Year

2013 Ducati Grandstands at World Superbike

The 2013 World Superbike Championship marks a historical year for Ducati. The Italian manufacturer is using its new 1199 Panigale RS13 superbikes in 2013 World SBK, which began at Phillip Island last month.

And to help support the men who will pilot the RS13, Team Ducati Alstare’s Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini, the famous “Ducati Grandstands” have been organized for five rounds of World SBK.

During these rounds – Assen, Monza, Imola, Nurburgring, Laguna Seca – special “Ducati Villages” will be built that will benefit people who book in the Ducati Grandstand. These benefits include a parking, free gear storage, and VIP and catering areas developed specifically for the Ducatisti.

Speaking of the grandstands, Ducati says: “Lucky participants will also enjoy the many event benefits provided by the Italian manufacturer as well as the unique atmosphere generated within the prominently situated Ducati Grandstands. “

World Superbike Ducati Grandstands Calendar:

  • April 28: Assen – Netherlands
  • May 12: Monza – Italy
  • June 30: Imola – Italy
  • September 1: Nurburgring – Germany
  • September 29: Laguna Seca – USA
