Expanded Ducati Racing Contingency Program increases funds and event support for regional club races in 2006

Cupertino, CA – December 10th, 2005 – Ducati North America officially announces that the popular racing contingency program that debuted in 2005 will return in 2006, better than ever! The 2006 program will have boosted payouts and more coverage for regional club races.

“After a very successful first year, I am pleased to announce that we have raised the bar and are now offering bonus payouts at even more race events in 2006 with the addition of WERA to our roster of racing organizations,” said Michael Lock, CEO of Ducati North America. “Racing is an exciting but very expensive sport, and this is our way of supporting the efforts of dedicated Ducati racers throughout the country. Racing is in our blood and Ducati is an important presence at the grass roots as well as the attention-grabbing international level.”

For 2006 Ducati will again offer two contingency programs, one for the professional AMA race series and the other for many regional club race series. A significant addition to the program is the WERA series, which is one of the country’s premier club racing organizations and boasts over 3000 competitive members.

Specific dates, classes and rules will be announced in early January and will be modeled on the 2005 program.
