Pirro on track in Valencia for three day Ducati test

Bologna factory's official test rider will continue the development of next year's bike

Preparations for the 2019 MotoGP™ World Championship are already well underway for Ducati Team as they aim to launch a title attack next season. 

The Bologna factory have been imperious since the summer break, taking three wins from four, but remain 72 points behind Championship leader Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) after an inconsistent opening half to the season. Helping to develop the GP19 is official test rider Michele Pirro, who will continue his testing duties in Valencia for three days, beginning on Tuesday 25th September – the same circuit where we’ll get to see every team testing with their new riders at the end of the season.
