The 2012 Ducati 848 Challenge calendar has been announced.
The eight-round championship will support the British Superbike championship for six of the eight rounds and will also head to Assen for the third year in a row and also to Misano as part of the World Ducati Week.
The one-make series is open to riders of the Ducati 848 and 848 EVO models. With minimal modifications allowed, costs are kept to a minimum and the series has proved popular with both racers and spectators thanks to its close racing.
The series costs £1650 to enter but registration enables you to get a discount of £1500 off a new Ducati 848 EVO. You can see this flyer for more details.
Forrmer British and World Superbike Champion Neil Hodgson will take on the role of Ambassador of the series and he's promised to support the 848 Challenge racers with setup tips and circuit knowledge.
