Misano Adriatico/Borgo Panigale, Italy, July 30, 2022 - The World Ducati Week 2022 has ended. The event brought together Ducatisti and fans of the world of two wheels for three days of passion, fun, and unforgettable experiences at Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli.”

The passion for the brand and the desire to be present at the great Ducati gathering attracted many fans to Misano. Despite the difficulties in moving around and traveling that still characterize today’s scenario, as well as the pandemic and sweltering temperatures of this period, they crowded the paddock reaching 80,000 visitors over the three days.

The participants came from 84 countries, demonstrating the global dimension of Ducati and the appeal that the brand has to motorcyclists worldwide.

The main protagonists of the three days were the 235 Ducati Official Clubs present at the event, which animated the area of ​​the International Village dedicated to them together with all the Ducati subsidiaries.

“At World Ducati Week, we can experience the celebration of Ducati’s deepest soul: we do not merely sell motorcycles, but we design experiences and emotions with bikes at the center for our fans,” declared Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO. “We all wanted to go back to being together with the Ducatisti, and they arrived in massive numbers from all over the world, even though we are still in the presence of travel restrictions and therefore we were not able to welcome anyone from China for example. The big parade on Friday, the crazy Lenovo Race of Champions, the Rustida on the pit straight, the greetings of the riders at the Misano stadium, the musical evenings, and the fireworks show impressed and excited me. These are just some moments that will remain in the memory of each person who came to this 2022 edition. I want to thank all the participants and the staff made up mainly of Ducati employees who, as usual, were present in great strength and worked hard to make this incredible experience possible.”

The most keenly awaited moment was the Lenovo Race of Champions, starring 21 Ducati riders competing in the MotoGP, Superbike and Supersport championships, who fought it out on standard Panigale V4 S and Panigale V2 bikes, equipped only with slick tires and racing exhausts. A unique show that only Ducati can offer its fans, which saw Pecco Bagnaia triumph after setting the fastest lap in 1m35.886s, only two and a half seconds more than the time from this year’s Superbike pole position at Misano. Federico Caricasulo took the victory in the Panigale V2 category.

Many fans followed the race from the Misano stands, giving rise to tremendous cheering. Tens of thousands of spectators joined them, connecting from home to the live streaming on the Ducati website. But not only that: as many as nine international televisions and online streaming services broadcast the race live on their schedule, making the Lenovo Race of Champions a truly global event. For example, in Italy, the Sky Sport MotoGP channel broadcasted the race with the commentary of Guido Meda and Mauro Sanchini and the contribution of Sandro Donato Grosso from the starting grid.
