TEAM SBK DUCATI ALSTARE PRESENTS THE NEW LIVERY OF THE 1199 PANIGALE R AND ITS SPONSORS FOR THE 2013 SEASON
Thursday 7th February 2013:
In anticipation of the first round of the 2013 World Superbike season, scheduled for Sunday 24 February at the Phillip Island circuit in Australia, Team SBK Ducati Alstare presents the livery of the new 1199 Panigale R, the bike with which the team's two official riders, Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini, will take to the track as they compete for the prestigious world title.
The new colour scheme that characterises Team SBK Ducati Alstare is mainly red, a testimony to the countless chapters that the Italian motorcycle manufacturer's red machines have contributed to the Superbike championship's history. The graphics of the bike have been designed and created by Alstare in collaboration with Ducati.
"I can only be pleased and optimistic with a team like this, and a bike of this level, with our two riders and a team of friends and sponsors that will support us throughout this demanding season - commented Francis Batta', owner of Team SBK Ducati Alstare. "The challenge that awaits us is not an easy one but thanks to our partners and the trust Ducati puts in us we will find the strength and the incentive to tackle the new season. I thank everyone who believes in us; we will do all we can to repay such passion and respect."
