Davide Tardozzi to Coordinate Team Organization & Logistics in Ducati MotoGP

Davide Tardozzi and Ducati have a very successful history. While team manager for Ducati’s World Superbike team, the 54-year-old Italian helped the Bologna-based manufacturer win eight Riders’ Championships.

In short, Tardozzi was part of the reason the World Superbike Championship got the name “The Ducati Cup.”

The field of riders Tardozzi managed were impressive, including World SBK champions Carl Fogarty, Troy Corser, Troy Bayliss, James Toseland and Neal Hodgson.

And following a few years with BMW Motorrad, the former Italian Superbike racer now returns to Ducati, but this time in MotoGP.

Tardozzi has signed a four-year contract to manage team organization and logistics in MotoGP. Tardozzi will report to Ducati Corse Sporting Director Paolo Ciabatti.

Ducati reports Tardozzi will begin his new role in the Ducati Team starting with the first MotoGP test at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia from February 4-6.
