California Superbike School partners with Ducati
03 Feb 14
New partnership for 2014 and beyond
We are very pleased to announce that the California Superbike School UK have joined forces with Ducati UK and their partnership will begin with immediate effect. The two companies have long been associated with each other through Superbike School Limited (SSL), the event division of California Superbike School, and SSL has over a number of years been responsible for operating the Ducati UK Roadshow as well as a number of successful track events such as Desmosedici Day and Ducati days.
Ducati UK will supply the School with the flagship 1199 Panigale, the new and highly acclaimed 899 Panigale and the soon to be launched Monster 1200. The bikes will not only be used as instructor bikes but will also be available to hire for students preferring not to use their own bikes or wishing to experience a Ducati on track.
“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. At Ducati UK we share this passion and we are excited to be part of this venture. Ducati considers rider training to be very important and in the UK, we have supported Bike Safe extensively for the road and so it would seem natural to support one of the leading exponents of track based advanced training. I am sure using a Ducati on one of the schools will prove very popular amongst students and will expose many people to the thrill of riding a Ducati.” Tim Maccabee, Managing Director, Ducati UK
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Ducati on the California Superbike School. I have been involved with Ducati for a number of 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.” Richard (Badger) Browne, Executive Director and Riding Coach, California Superbike School
The first opportunity for students to experience a Ducati on a California Superbike School day will be 27 April at the Stowe Circuit, Silverstone. Students that have already booked hire bikes for 2014 will have their bookings transferred to the equivalent Ducati model.
