Ducatista unite | World Ducati Week 2024 ready for action at Italy's Misano World Circuit this July

Ducati have released plans for their upcoming World Ducati Week celebration, which returns to Misano for the first time since 2022 this July 26-28. 

Now entering its 12th iteration, the global coming together of ‘Ducatista’ promises to be “an unparalleled experience for motorcycling fans” according to Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali. 

Headlining the event is the Race of Champions, in which 15 Ducati racers, holding 20 world titles between them will be pitted against each other around the Misano Circuit, all equipped with standard Panigale V4 superbikes to level the playing field.

Among riders competing is British Superbike front runner Glenn Irwin, who will line up alongside MotoGP riders Marc Marquez, Alex Marquez, Marco Bezzecchi, Fabio Di Giannantonio, Jorge Martin, and Franco Morbidelli.  

These will face off against World Superbike stars, including two time champion Álvaro Bautista and his teammate Nicolò Bulega. 

Top tier racing isn’t the only attraction though, and visitors will be able to enjoy a mass riders’ parade on Friday, followed by the ‘Land of Joy’ beach party which will celebrate 10 years since the Scrambler brand was launched. That’s not all though, and Ducati have announced they will be holding a world premiere of a new product, as has become tradition at the event.

Test riders, both on track, road and dirt will be held throughout the weekend and Ducati’s sister company, Lamborghini, will be present to offer test drives too.
