After enthralling MotoGP fans with his daredevil pass on Marquez at the last corner of the last lap at the Austrian GP, Andrea Dovizioso will be in India on the 29th of September, 2019. He will be attending the Shell Ducati Riders’ Day at the Buddh International circuit. The event comes as the latest endeavour by Shell and Ducati to establish a stronger connection with their customers in India and deliver on their brand promise.
The event will also see Ducati create riding experiences by inviting 60 trained Ducati Professionals. This will be topped up by an appearance of official MotoGP rider Andrea Dovizioso. Shell Advance has facilitated the appearance of the top-class MotoGP rider in India. On this day, Ducati DRE Certified trainers would provide exclusive training to all participants for the Ducati Road Academy at the event. This will focus on improving the skills of riders on road thereby ensuring safe riding. This will be followed by the Ducati Open Track Day, which will provide an opportunity for all Ducati superbike owners to ride on the track, further enhancing their skills.
The Open Track Day is open for all Ducati motorcycles excluding the Scrambler range while the Road Academy would accommodate all Ducati owners. The participants can avail their passes at an introductory price of INR 11,000 for riding on the track and INR 7,000 for the road academy. Limited to 40 slots, each slot for the Track Riding would include 5 sessions of 15 to 20 minutes each. On the other hand, the Road academy is limited to 25 slots and would include the full training.
