Ducati dominates the world of racing

POSTED: 28/11/2023

Limits exist to be exceeded. Challenges to be overcome. Records to be broken.

History repeats itself. Campioni del Mondo!

Thanks to the first place in the Valencia Grand Prix the all-Italian duo of Francesco Bagnaia and the Desmosedici GP of the Ducati Lenovo Team won the MotoGP World Title for the second consecutive year, leading the final standing ahead of two other Ducati riders: Jorge Martín (Pramac Racing Team) and Marco Bezzecchi (VR46 Racing Team). The all-Ducati podium in MotoGP crowns a record season for Ducati, which achieved victories in all the main World Championships on two wheels.

As well as being a source of enormous joy for Ducatisti all over the world, Bagnaia's magnificent confirmation in MotoGP, Álvaro Bautista's defence of his title in WorldSBK and Nicolò Bulega's first success in WorldSSP are the demonstration of a clear philosophy: in Borgo Panigale the desire to improve has no limits!

The common thread that unites all the successes of Ducati Corse's racing season lies in the engineering excellence that has led the Desmosedici GP, Panigale V4 R and Panigale V2 to be the best motorcycles on the grid in their respective championships. In fact, the conquest of the three Riders’ World Titles is combined with a triple victory in the Manufacturers’ category for Ducati in a story that once again speaks of Made in Italy talent, passion and dedication.

No other motorcycle manufacturer before Ducati has ever been able to win both the Riders' and Constructors' World Titles in MotoGP and WorldSBK for two seasons in a row. For Ducati, the only non-Japanese manufacturer capable of winning a World Championship in MotoGP, this is the third Riders' Title in its history, while the number of Superbike World Titles won by riders from Borgo Panigale is 16.

The MotoGP 2023 season tells of a notable technical supremacy of Ducati bikes, which have rewritten some significant records of the most important two-wheel World Championship, such as the highest number of overall victories in a single season (17 Grand Prix out of 20) and the record for the highest number of different riders capable of winning at least one Grand Prix (6 - Bagnaia, Bastianini, Bezzecchi, Di Giannantonio, Martín, Zarco).

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
