WORLD DUCATI WEEK ANNOUNCED FOR 2012
16 November 2011
The 7th edition of the World Ducati Week will take place at the Misano World Circuit from 21 to 24 June.
It's official: WDW 2012, the event Ducatisti from all over the world can't get enough of is coming to the Misano World Circuit from 21 to 24 June.
The first World Ducati Week was held in 1998 to thank all the people who helped make Ducati famous throughout the world and to celebrate their passion for motorbikes and anything Desmo. Always a great chance to party and have fun, in 2012 this event, by now nothing short of a "saga", will celebrate its 7th edition.
Memories are still alive in the hearts of those who took part in the last edition, held in 2010, which literally filled the now historic home of the event, the Misano circuit. At the centre of it all, the track, the shows, the riders, the races, the music but in particular many motorcycles and motorcyclists from all around the world. Nothing short of a "Red Planet" taking over not only the circuit itself, but the entire Romagna Riviera for four days.
Taking part in the WDW means getting involved in a 360 degree event and share an unforgettable experience with thousands of other Ducatisti (and more) from all over the world, united by the same passion for the "Reds of Borgo Panigale". Throughout this journey, Ducati.com will be an essential reference point where participants can obtain information, consult the programme of the week, purchase tickets and prepare for the great event.
WDW 2012, the countdown has already started: save the date!
Announced during Ducati's recent model year 2012 Press Conference and Milan International Motorcycle Show, the long-awaited dates and location for the World Ducati Week 2012 event are now confirmed for passionate Ducati fans all over the world as 21-24 June, 2012 at the circuit of Misano in Italy.
First organised in 1998, WDW successfully brought together ‘Ducatisti' from all over the world to celebrate their shared passion for the legendary Italian-made motorcycles. The event has since attracted an ever-increasing attendance of people who enjoy the high-powered fun and community spirit of the iconic brand, with a record-breaking attendance of 60,000 fans from 5 continents and 28 countries recorded at the last event in 2010.
WDW2012 is sure to follow the tried and tested formula of race track events, shows, top riders, competitions and great music all combined with the incredible atmosphere created by thousands of motorcycles arriving from all around the globe.
As the event's massive attendance is sure to invade the entire Riviera Romagnola, Ducati's WDW2012 organisation has enjoyed the close cooperation and special partnership of authorities such as the Province of Rimini, Municipality of Misano, Municipality of Cattolica, Municipality of Riccione and the Republic of San Marino. Continued cooperation with the Leardini Group has also underlined the region's Misano circuit venue as the ‘theatre' for WDW, an event further supported by APT Emilia Romagna, promoting a region of Italy famously known as ‘Motor Valley'.
