WDW2016, a packed program!
Not just the Misano World Circuit - Outside the circuit
World Ducati Week is the global Ducati get-together. It's the place to experience and share that all-encompassing passion for your Ducati and biking.
This year, the asphalt at Misano is going to heat up hotter than ever, with a packed programme of activities on the track, in the paddocks and even outside the circuit.
The definitive programme will be issued shortly: in the meantime, here's a list of the not-to-be-missed events outside the circuit!
WDW by Day:
Guided tour of museum and factory
WDW2016 will be special year. To celebrate Ducati's 90th anniversary the Ducati Museum will open its doors to present an all-new look, set up specially for WDW participants. From Wednesday 29 June to Monday 4 July the factory - already open to the public throughout the year - will, as tradition demands, be open to all WDW participants. During this period no booking will be necessary as guided visits will take place one after the other from 9.30 to 16.00. The museum, instead, can be visited at any time until 17.30.
An exciting change for those eager to eat up some twisties before or after the activities at the race track. Four tours are available, all specially designed to show you the most eye-popping roads of Italy's Romagna region. If you've already purchased your tour together with the ticket, go to paddock 3 thirty minutes before it is due to start. If, instead, you haven't yet purchased a tour you can still head to the meeting point and see if there are any places left-
For WDW2016, the Via Emilia will become Route 90th, snaking through 9 historical stop-off spots to celebrate Ducati's long history and its close ties with the local territory. Stop at every spot: a bit of motorcycling history awaits. Collect the photos and by the end of the route you'll have ridden through some of the most significant moments in Ducati's 90-year history.
WDW by night:
Ducatisti Parade - Friday
Friday evening: it's time for the awesome Ducati bike ride along the Adriatic coast. Open to all participants, this ride marks the end of the first day at Misano and takes the riders on a spectacular tour through the coastal towns near the WDW venue. The mass ride-past will start with a lap of honour around the Misano racetrack and pass along the Riviera before reaching the special Scrambler-themed party at Aquafan in Riccione.
Scrambler Party @ Aquafan Riccione- Friday evening
This fabulous Ducatisti ride-past ends Friday evening at the Scrambler Party at the Aquafan fun park in Riccione - water chutes, swimming pools, foam, fun and music from the 90s. Don't forget your bathing costume!
Start time of the Party: 8.30 pm. The arrival at the Party is scheduled at 9:30 pm for those who take part in the Ducatisti Parade.
