DUCATI TEAM ARRIVE AT MISANO FOR SECOND `HOME` RACE, THE GRAN PREMIO TIM DI SAN MARINO E DELLA RIVIERA DI RIMINI

After three races in August, the Ducati Team is back on home ground in Italy again for the thirteenth round of the 2015 MotoGP World Championship. The Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini will be held this weekend at Misano World Circuit, the Adriatic Riviera track situated just down the A14 motorway from Ducati headquarters at Borgo Panigale.

Andrea Dovizioso comes to Misano off the back of a great performance at Silverstone, where he finished third after a wet-weather battle with his fellow Ducati rider Danilo Petrucci of the Pramac Racing Team. Dovizioso has never actually been on the Misano podium in the seven MotoGP races he has competed in since 2008, his best result a fourth place, which he obtained four times, in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014. Andrea Iannone on the other hand has taken part in two San Marino MotoGP races, with his best result being a fifth place last year after qualifying on the front row.

Misano will also see the return of Michele Pirro, test-rider for the Ducati Test Team, who lines up as a wild-card for the second time this season, with a third Desmosedici GP15.

On Thursday morning there will be a unique opportunity to see the Ducati Team and riders as Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone parade their Desmosedici GP15 machines through the historic centre of San Marino. The event, which begins in Piazza Fabbri and ends in Piazza della Libertà, is scheduled for an 11.45 start.

The Misano weekend programme gets underway on Friday morning with first free practice at 09.55 CET, while the 28-lap race is scheduled for Sunday at 14.00.
