SUNNYVALE, Calif., October 14, 2020 — This weekend marked a historic moment for Ducati as their Italian rider Lorenzo Zanetti took a phenomenal victory at the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He fended off the best superbike racers’ advances in the United States and made a memorable U.S. debut for the Ducati Corse-supplied Panigale V4 R SBK.

The victory was the first time since 2010 that a Ducati had won a Superbike Championship Race in the U.S.A.

Zanetti immediately made an impression in the first of the weekend’s three Superbike races. The Ducati Corse test rider ran off the track while leading, then miraculously found his way back onto the track and fought his way back for a debut podium spot in third place. In race two, Zanetti, determined to show the full potential of the Ducati Panigale V4 R SBK, picked his moment to take the lead in the closing laps and powered the Ducati across the famous yard of bricks to finish in the first place.

“In the end, it was an amazing weekend for me with three podiums and a victory. It is unbelievable,” Zanetti beamed after race three. “I’m thrilled. It was a great day. Thanks to Ducati for giving me the chance to race against the best riders in the United States. They are World Championship level riders. I like the American people, so I hope to be back racing again more next year.”

A native of Brescia, Italy, Zanetti is the official test rider for Ducati Corse and is riding in the MotoAmerica series for the Warhorse Racing HSBK Ducati New York team.

The Warhorse HSBK Ducati New York Team will be back on track with Zanetti on the weekend of October 24 and 25 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca for the final round of the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship.
