Cupertino, Calif. (24 February 2011) – Ducati announces today the launch of the 2011 848EVO Club Racing
Contingency Program; a package to support riders campaigning Ducati’s new middleweight Superbike in
regional race competition.
Ducati continues to push the envelopes of racing performance and technology. The new 848EVO is a direct
result of these ambitions combined with years of development while racing the 848 Superbike. In 2011,
Ducati riders from around the nation will be competing for one of the best contingency programs available.
The 848EVO Club Racing Contingency Program is open to any rider competing on a Ducati 848EVO Superbike
purchased from an authorized US Ducati dealer. Payouts will be made in Ducati credit vouchers for the
amounts of $700, $300 and $150; representing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes.
The regional series supported by the program are CCS, CMRA, WSMC, MRA, OMMRA, WMRRA, and AFM.
There will be 109 races eligible for payout under the program, a minimum of three race weekends per series,
and two-to-three classes paying out per race meeting. The 2011 program is Ducati’s best in years, and
underlines the brand’s confidence in the capabilities of the new 848EVO.
Ducati is also pleased to announce the nine competing riders it has careful selected as part of the 848EVO
Club Racing Program. Jim Chaconas, Howard Crow, Jose Flores, Doug Hillius, Ryan Jones, Barrett Long,
Brent Lyskawa, Stefano Mesa and Joel Spalding will be representing the iconic brand on their new 848EVO
