Ducati Confirms Davies & Giugliano

BOLOGNA, Italy — Ducati confirmed its participation in the 2014 World Superbike Championship and announced the riders who will climb aboard Ducati 1199 Panigale motorcycles.

Welsh rider Chaz Davies and Italian Davide Giugliano have been confirmed to compete for the Italian manufacturer during the 2014 and 2015 World Superbike seasons.

This is an important decision for Ducati, determined to bounce back after a year of disappointing results for the 1199 Panigale, which failed to deliver the results expected in World Superbike despite its considerable success in many national championships and the highly-competitive FIM Superstock Cup.

The new Ducati Superbike riders will immediately join technicians of the Ducati development team to start work Oct. 30-31 at Jerez de la Frontera (Spain), carrying out the first of three test sessions planned for the winter break.
