#RideHVMC Ducati Panigale R 9/11 Tribute

This Sunday, September 11th, marks the 15th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack on US soil.

To pay tribute to those who perished and assisted during and following the 9/11 attacks, #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati and its Superstock 1000 rider Corey Alexander team will showcase a Ducati Panigale R “Engine No. 23” with special-edition F.D.N.Y. livery during season finale of MotoAmerica at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

#RideHVMC Ducati Freeman Racing Ducati says the livery replicates in exact detail a typical F.D.N.Y. Fire apparatus with prominent yellow and white stripes.

#RideHVMC Ducati Panigale R 9/11 TributeThe custom painted #23 Panigale R, as well as Alexander’s custom race leathers, will be on display at NJMP from Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11. Alexander will also compete with the tribute Panigale R during the MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 class finale, which runs in conjunction with the Superbike races.

#RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati also will have event shirts available for sale, with all profits being donated to the 9/11 Memorial Foundation.

“Every year our home race at New Jersey Motorsport Park falls near September 11th, and so this year when we realized the dates aligned and race day (Sunday) fell on the 11th, we felt it was absolutely necessary to do something to really honor the brave men and women of the F.D.N.Y.. Being a New Yorker my entire life, I can remember the exact day of the tragedy,” Corey Alexander says.

“At the time only being 7 years old, I didn’t understand the magnitude of the events unfolding. Though I did feel the magnitude of the events then, I continue to feel the impact it had on our city, our state, and our country. With the help of our team painter Lance, graphics company Signs Ink, and leather sponsor Spidi Sport I’m excited to bring our vision come to life. It’s a tremendous honor to showcase this special livery, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!”
