The two companies, both based on the Silverstone circuit, have long associations with each other through Superbike School Limited (SSL) the event division of California Superbike School. SSL has over a number of years been responsible for operating the successful Ducati UK Roadshow as well as a number of successful track events.

Ducati UK will supply the school with the flagship 1199 Panigale, the new and highly acclaimed Ducati 899 Panigale and the soon to be launched Monster 1200. The bikes will be available to hire for students who choose not to use their own bikes and wishing to experience a Ducati on track.

Tim Maccabee, Managing Director, Ducati UK said “We have worked with Superbike School Limited for a number of years and I have always been impressed with their professionalism and passion for what they do. Ducati considers rider training to be very important and in the UK we have supported the road based Bike Safe programme for some time and so it is a natural progression to support one of the leading exponents of track based advanced training. I am sure using a Ducati on the school will prove very popular amongst students and will expose many people to the thrill of riding a Ducati. We are certainly looking forward to this new venture.”

Richard (Badger) Brown, Executive Director and Rider Coach, California Superbike School said “I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Ducati on the California Superbike School. I have been involved with Ducati for over 3 years with their Roadshows and I have become a big fan of the brand. Their range is one of the most technologically advanced on the market and the traction control and riding modes add an important element of safety to the school. Welcoming a premium brand such as Ducati to the California Superbike School can only encourage more people to join us in honing their skills.”   

The first opportunity to experience a Ducati on a California Superbike School day will be 27 April at the Stowe Circuit, Silverstone. We look forward to seeing the California team here at Seastar Superbikes for the Ducati UK Roadshow on 17 & 18 May 2014 as part of our annual Open Weekend.
