Ducati kicks off 2012 with annual ‘Wrooom’ event

Ducati welcome in the new season with their annual five-day Wrooom Press Ski Meeting at the Madonna di Campiglio resort.

The 2012 ‘Wrooom’ event officially opens today, where the stunning slopes of Madonna di Campiglio in the magnificent Dolomites play host to a week of full of skiing, exhibitions and meetings with the press.

Riders, guests and media arrive Monday evening, after which a busy schedule kicks off the following day. Tuesday morning, team riders Nicky Hayden and Valentino Rossi will field questions from the attending media in a joint press conference, after which the riders will meet with fans. Also answering press enquiries will be Ducati Corse General Manager Filippo Preziosi in a meeting that takes place on Wednesday morning.

The high point of the week traditionally occurs on Friday, where an exhibition race between Ducati's MotoGP riders and Ferrari's F1 drivers face off in a kart race on ice to wrap up the 22nd edition of Wrooom. This year however, Hayden’s participation in the activities is likely to be limited due to his recent shoulder injury.

Videos and images from the 2012 Wrooom event will be available daily on
