DMC race team take delivery of 1199 Panigale for Worls Superstock 2012..

Ducati Manchester delivered our race bikes to Aragon, Spain on Friday night, and left our technicians working overnight to get the bikes un crated, and ready for track time on Saturday.... Initial tests of the bikes (in road trim) are very positive.... Our newly signed Moto 2 Rider Kev Coghlan commented " The bike handles really good, feels like a 600, nice and light. Obviously being a completely standard bike there were a few issues with the handling but even with some small changes to the damping we could get it working much better - really surprised at the bikes performance for a road bike".... Alexei Ivanov (also Moto 2 rider) said "I am amazed how the bike felt like a 600 and the performance of the bike, I am excited to get more track time"

Please keep following our twitter, Facebook and webiste for all information regarding Ducati Manchesters World Superstock 2012 information....

Join us for a Customer Rideout !

Customer Ride outs from the Store will, weather permitting recommence in March and we have a great programme planned for the summer months! - Check here for regular announcements and on our Facebook Page ( We are going to run some on Saturdays and some on Sundays this year.

As part of this programme of events - here's a date for your diary and one not to be missed - 28th April 2012 - the 10th Annual Bristol Italian Automoto Festival - never been ? Here's whats in store.... we will meet at a central point and ride down to Gordano Services on the M5 to rendezvous with 100s of other italian bikes of all descriptions and then participate in a mass ride in, in to Bristol City Centre (the sound of 100s of Termignoni Systems bouncing off the walls of the tall buildings in the centre is a aural spectacle not to be missed!). The event is staged in the corn market area of the city and involves all the major and some lesser known italian motor manufactures of both 4 wheeled and two wheeled exotica, and is supported by all of the Owners Clubs - spend the day admiring Ducatis of all ages, MV's, Aprilias, Benellis, Moto Guzzi, aswell as 4 wheeled supercars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Pagani, Alfa Romeo, and Lancia. There's a great choice of Bistros, Cafes and Restaurants to enjoy a spot of lunch and refreshment, followed by the ride home, where will try and get off the motorway and find some fun roads to enjoy on Bologna's finest!

We'll post more details shortly of the departure point and time - and it would be great if you could join us... All welcome!
