After a successful maiden edition of the DRE Off-road days training session, Ducati has now announced a DRE Racetrack training session which will be conducted by certified Ducati instructors. Gurvinder Singh and Anand Dharmaraj will train the riders.
Multiple times JK Tyre Superbike Championship winner, Gurvinder Singh and Anand Dharamaraj, the chief trainer for Bengaluru based Indimotard TWO track school were certified as official DRE Racetrack Instructors, by global DRE Instructors like Dario Marchetti, Technical Director and Instructor Manager for DRE and Alessandro Valia, Official Ducati tester and DRE Instructor. Both the riders went through an exhaustive theory test on day one and underwent complex riding drills on the racetrack on day two. Only then did Ducati award them this certification.
The DRE was born on the racetrack. Hence, it is here that it continues to offer a very important part of the ‘experience’, thanks to the different courses subdivided according to the ability and needs of participants. The DRE Racetrack focuses on teaching, enjoyment and adrenaline. Riders are provided world class training from the most revered riders on the racetrack. Meanwhile, they will be riding the most beautiful and high-performance bikes in the Ducati Superbike family.
With this development in place, Ducati India aims to host more DRE Track Days events. Also, the brand will develop one on one training sessions for the Ducatisti who wish to hone their track riding skills and become more competitive if they wish to race in the Ducati Race cup or the National Championships.
“Ducati stands for style, sophistication and performance. Nothing justifies our brand values more than seeing a Ducati rider unleashing his bike’s capabilities on the racetrack. It gives us immense pleasure to announce the start of the DRE Racetrack programme. We’re one of the first luxury motorcycle brands in India to do so. We’re committed towards providing the best adrenaline pumping experiences for Indian Ducatisti. After announcing the Ducati Race Cup, Ducati India is working hard to develop this sport in India.” said, Sergi Canovas, Managing Director for Ducati India.
“Ducati is currently the only premium luxury brand in India that is seriously working to develop racing in India. Last year, I won the JK Tyre Superbike Championship on a Panigale V4. Becoming a Ducati certified instructor is a dream come true for me. I can’t wait to start riding with the Ducatisti and further build their skills in India.” said Gurvinder Singh, DRE Certified Racetrack Instructor
Anand Dharmaraj, DRE Certified Racetrack Instructor also said “My relationship with Ducati has been long standing. I became a certified Riding Instructor in 2018. I also led the DRE Off Road Days programme in Bengaluru a couple of weeks ago. The Racetrack certification is extremely special for me. I look forward to hosting the first DRE Racetrack training session in India soon.”
