Ducati UK’s popular Ducati only track days are back for 2021, with three dates at some of the country’s most famous racing circuits.
The days are open to all Ducatis, standard or modified, classic and new. From humble Scramblers through to unlikely Diavels and the exotic sports bikes with which the brand has become synonymous, the only stipulation is that your motorcycle came out of the hallowed Borgo Panigale factory.
The first date is less than a month away, at the full Grand Prix circuit at Donington Park on May 20, with the second taking place less than a week later on May 26 – on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit. The third and final date gives the Ducatisti an opportunity to ride the full Grand Prix layout at Silverstone on July 7, a real treat for MotoGP fans.
Ducati know how to put on a good do (they chuck in some breakfast and lunch) and the days are grouped into three categories: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced, so you shouldn’t need to worry about being carved up by a Scott Redding wannabe while you tootle around on your old classic.
Of course, track days have some rules to comply to. Specifically, you’ll need suitable one-piece leathers (or a two-piece zip together), helmet, gloves and boots. Also, new for 2021, bikes need a front brake guard to get on track, while your bike will need to pass a 105db noise limit at Brands and Silverstone. Being 2021 and all that, social distancing regulations are in place and no spectators are allowed, but that won’t make a jot of difference when you’re out lapping one of our best circuits on a Ducati.
