Cupertino, California (February 20, 2007) – Continuing the historical racing legacy and passion that has created one of the most successful sport motorcycle brands of the 21st century, Ducati North America is proud to post the 2007 North American Racing Contingency Program.

The program applies to both sportsman and expert racers, and has received several changes for 2007, paying out at more than 175 races nationwide.

Experience from 2006 has shown that the Paul Smart Limited Edition, the Sport 1000 and the Sport 1000 S models all make a strong and reliable platform for local racing. Thus for 2007, the SportClassic models have been added as qualifying motorcycles for certain regional classes, as well as inclusion in the new SunTrust MOTO-ST series. In support of those racing the SportClassic line, Ducati North America is importing a limited run of special racing kits that are designed to boost performance and handling, while making the motorcycle track ready.

“Racing is what we live for at Ducati and we are happy to support the local racers who work year round to campaign our motorcycles on North American racetracks.” says Nick McCabe, Business Development Manager of Ducati North America. “Racing, even on the local level is a serious and expensive commitment, and we wish to support those that put in the effort.”

In addition to the racing contingency program, Ducati North America offers further local racing support with “racer only” pricing on selected new 2007 models, as well as specially discounted racing kits for specific models.
