Ducati held its first DRE Racetrack Training at the Buddh International Circuit on April 27 and April 28. The training session was exclusive for Ducati riders, trained by Ducati certified trainers, Gurvinder Singh and Anand Dharmaraj.
The full day, one-on-one training had 5 sessions each where Ducatistis were taught about the important techniques of riding on track. The riders learnt about correct riding position, correct view, braking, acceleration, braking position, pace management, racing line.
Bollywood actor Amit Sadh participated with a Panigale V4 alng with Dr Niharika Yadav on an 899 Panigale. The participants received a DRE certificate of completion.
Sergi Canovas, managing director of Ducati India said; “The DRE individual training program is like no other currently available in India. This gives access to Ducati Owners to train individually with one trainer for the entire day. This not only gives the Ducatisti the opportunity to pick up more knowledge than in group sessions. It helps them in working on their individual weak spots during the personalized sessions. We are looking to develop motorsports in India and the same can be done by not only providing the best motorcycles for the job but also by training the Indian riders. To develop the sport further in India, we will continue these training sessions over the year along with a full DRE Track day coming soon. Once riders have upped their riding skills, they will be more competitive at the soon to be held Ducati cup as well as this year’s JK tyre racing championship.”
Ducati is the first brand to start a track training session for its customers. Triumph too recently conducted their first track training session at the Buddh International Circuit for owners.
