Ducati India announced its first ever Ducati India Race Cup. The race will take place in October 2019 alongside the season finale of the 2019 Volkswagen Ameo Cup. It will take place at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.
Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India said, “In 2018, Ducati showcased its racing DNA by winning at the JK Tyre National Superbike Racing Championship. Now, Ducati is proud to bring its very own one-make race along with Volkswagen Motorsport India. This year, we are also looking to organize more. Not just another DRE Track day but we are also working on having certified DRE instructors in India itself so that they can provide individual training to keen Ducati riders before the race. Ducati India is thankful to Volkswagen Motorsports India for this collaboration.”
