The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Team eye the top prize in 2016

Posted:

After a memorable 2015 ‰ÛÒ with the first win for the Panigale R at Aragon and second place in the Riders‰Ûª and Manufacturers‰Ûª championships ‰ÛÒ the 2016 Aruba.it Racing - Ducati Team was launched today at the Aruba Data Center in Arezzo, where the adventure began twelve months ago.

Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano took the wraps off the factory Panigale R bikes and the team laid down an even more ambitious challenge for this year‰Ûªs Superbike World Championship.

During the event the sporting programme and the technical changes for the production-based championship that gets underway on February 28th at Phillip Island in Australia were illustrated to media, team sponsors and partners. The project resumes under the watchword of continuity, with Davis and Giugliano both confirmed, and several innovations in the technical staff and on the bike.

Stefano Cecconi (CEO Aruba S.p.A and Team Principal): ‰ÛÏTwenty-one podiums and five wins in 2015 enabled us to finish second in both the Riders‰Ûª and Manufacturers‰Ûª championships, giving us great satisfaction. But we are not settling for that result, and we will try and go even better this year.

"From an organization point of view, the collaboration with Ducati and with Feel Racing worked well and I want to thank everyone involved. We began the season on the podium and finished it by always fighting for the win. And it is from that point that we want to resume this season, with the aim of going even better this year, so it was right to not change a winning team. 2015 was a record year for Aruba in terms of results and the Superbike project surely made a big contribution to this, with all the visibility it gave us on a national and international level‰Û
