Ducati India has announced that it will be organising the first ever Shell Ducati Riders Day in India on September 29, 2019 at Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. This is the first instance of Ducati and Shell coming together to organise an event like this in India, although the two brands have had a two-decade long partnership. The idea is to establish a stronger connect with Ducati and Shell customers and also educate them about the collaboration between two brands. The big news here is that Ducati's MotoGP rider, Andrea Dovizioso will also be present at Buddh International Circuit.
Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India added, "After the resounding success of all our experiential activities, we are proud to announce our first ever Shell Ducati Riders' Day exclusively for all Ducatisti. This experience would help riders improve their riding skills under the guidance of certified instructors and enhance the joy of riding on road as well on track. With Dovizioso joining us, we are sure that this edition is going to be a unique and electrifying one."
The other highlight will be that Ducati will have its DRE certified trainers who will be running training sessions for Ducati owners. The road training sessions will be followed by an open track day where all Ducati motorcycle will included with the exception of the Ducati Scrambler. Ducati owners can buy passes at ₹ 11,000 for track sessions and ₹ 7,000 for road sessions. There will be 40 slots and 5 track sessions of 15-20 minutes each while the road training program will have 25 slots each. Ducati still has a few slots left for the road training program, so if you are a Ducatisti and interested in enhancing your skills, you should sign up for their road training program.
