Ahead of the next pre-season World Superbike test to be held at Phillip Island, Ducati Alstare after their good-bye video to Suzuki, has taken off the wraps off the livery that they will sporting this season on Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini’s Ducati 1199 Panigale R.
The Alstare Panigale livery reflects the classical red of the Ducati marque and also introduces four of their main sponsors, Energy Trading International (an Italian energy company that also backs MotoGP rider Andrea Iannone in Pramac Racing), FIAMM Group (batteries), FICC (energy drinks) e TIM (ICT phone company).
I can only be pleased and optimistic with a team like this, and a bike of this level, with our two riders and a team of friends and sponsors that will support us throughout this demanding season.The challenge that awaits us is not an easy one but thanks to our partners and the trust Ducati puts in us we will find the strength and the incentive to tackle the new season. I thank everyone who believes in us; we will do all we can to repay such passion and respect,” said team principal Francis Batta.
