Ducati to test again in Mugello

The Superbike World Championship is currently enjoying a long summer break between the previous round of the championship at Silverstone on August 1st and the next at the Nürburgring on September 5th.
After such a long break some teams like to get some testing in before the action starts again for real, and thus the official Ducati Xerox squad, including factory riders Noriyuki Haga and Michel Fabrizio, are scheduled to make a test at Mugello immediately before the Nürburgring round. The planned test dates are Tuesday 31 August and Wednesday 1 September.

“We test at Mugello quite regularly, sometimes with a private rider sometimes with the official riders,” said Ducati Superbike Director Ernesto Marinelli. “In the case of Mugello, it is not a racetrack for World Superbike, so there is no restriction. We will test with our riders for a day. We are doing it to get the ‘rust` out of them after some time away from the track, like we did last year. It will help us when we arrive in Nürburgring.”
