After its inaugural year the 848 Challenge will return in 2011
as an official partner series to the MCE Insurance British
Superbike Championship (BSB).
The 2011 Ducati 848 Challenge builds on the successful
foundations of the 2010 season by providing a high profile and
competitive Championship that will visit some of the most iconic
circuits in the UK and Europe. Circuits on the calendar will
provisionally include such classics as Brands Hatch, Silverstone,
Cadwell Park, Assen and Monza. The series will consist
of sixteen races run over five televised BSB rounds, two overseas
rounds and the hugely attended annual Castle Combe motorcycle
The winner of the Championship will collect a new 848 Evo in the
stunning Dark Stealth livery as well as a 2 day course at the
California Superbike School. Other prizes include a Bianchi Race
Bicycle, Ducati Performance Vouchers, testing with a BSB team and
other prizes soon to be announced.
The 2011 848 Challenge will be fully supported and operated by
Ducati UK and will be offering a generous race package that will
include the series registration within the price of a new 848 Evo
(2010 SRP £9,995 for Dark Stealth*)
Ducati UK Managing Director Tim Maccabee is delighted to see the
848 Challenge become a support series to British Superbike
Championship and commented: "This is a fantastic opportunity for
competitors to showcase their talents at some of the best tracks in
the UK and Europe supporting probably the best domestic
championship in the world. The 848 Challenge will give competitors
a unique stage to display their talents and offer sponsors great
exposure with one of the most iconic racing brands."
BSB Series Director Stuart Higgs said: "Ducati is a hugely
prestigious brand and a racing championship utilising the stunning
Evo model will certainly enhance the BSB event weekend. The
combination of UK and European circuits makes this series unique
and very attractive for competitors."
