MotoGP: Ducati man scoops top prize

Published: 12 December 2007

One of the key men behind Ducati’s phenomenal success in the 2007 MotoGP world championship has claimed a prestigious award.

Aerodynamicist Alan Jenkins collected the Sir Jackie Stewart Award at the BRDC awards ceremony in London earlier this month.

The prize is awarded to a motorsport engineer who has shown brilliance during the course of the season.

Jenkins has played a pivotal role in Ducati’s premier class success since 2003, with his aerodynamics package largely credited for helping Ducati achieve record-breaking top speeds.

His involvement with the Bologna factory helped Casey Stoner win 10 races in a dominant 2007 season.
