Ducati Manchester's Robbie Brown is about to take on the biggest challenge of the year as he enters World Superstock 1000 as a wildcard at two rounds.
The 848 Challenge series leader is standing in for Alexey Ivanov and will ride the Ducati Panigale at Brno, Czech Republic on 22/07/2012 and Silverstone, UK 05/08/2012.
Robbie has taken 6 wins in the series so far and worked up a commanding 62.5 point advantage in the series to his nearest rival in 2nd position.
Robbie said:"Obviously my main priority is the 848 Challenge and I don't want to sacrifice that but it will be great to ride the 1199 Panigale to keep me fresh over the 6 week break between now and Cadwell Park. Brno is going to be treated as a test for me. I have never ridden the bike or the circuit so I just want to come away with some positive data to hit the ground running at Silverstone for the home fans. Its all credit to Ducati Manchester for making this happen and all the sponsors who have supported. I can't wait!"
