World Ducati Week, 2022. - Ducati Media.

Ducati has announced today (21 April 2022) that it will be hosting its 11th annual World Ducati Week at the end of July. 

The precise dates for this year’s World Ducati Week are 22-24 July, and will take place - as has become traditional - at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, the home of the San Marinese round of the MotoGP World Championship since 2007.

World Ducati Week is a celebration of all things Ducati, who say: “World Ducati Week is open to an audience of all nationalities, ages, genders, personalities and backgrounds.”

Ducati’s motorcycle roster has also expanded in recent times, with the Multistrada V4 becoming one of the brand’s most popular options, and the DesertX proving Ducati’s adventurous capabilities.

To reflect this, Ducati says, “From those who love to discover the world by travelling by motorbike between villages and winding roads, to those who devour the track lap after lap and to all motorcyclists who venture into the most exciting off-roads paths. The WDW is a perfect opportunity for everyone to experience the passion for two wheels.”

The event will see a variety of events taking place, from the Race of Champions - where Ducati’s factory riders from the worlds of MotoGP and WorldSBK will face-off against each other on-track - to autograph sessions with those riders and the chance to speak to some of Ducati’s designers and engineers. Perhaps you have a solution to the rear grip issues Ducati is currently facing with its GP22 Grand Prix bike, or you know how to get Alvaro Bautista to brake as late and as efficiently as Toprak Razgatlioglu. More likely, you can have the chance to learn and understand more about the engineering behind some of the Ducati bikes of past and present. 

There are two types of ticket: the Biker Pass (for those arriving on their own motorcycle), and the Visitor Pass (for those arriving not on a motorcycle). Both passes make the holder eligible for the same things, although it seems unlikely that those arriving on foot will be able to ride the Misano track on their own bike, as those with the Biker pass will be able to. Ducati is also allowing WDW ticket holders entrance to the Ducati Museum at a reduced cost.

In terms of price, there are several options for both tickets. Firstly, you can buy either a one-day or three-day pass. These differences are relatively self-explanatory. But there are also different prices available for different people. For example, if you are buying a Biker Pass and are between 18- and 25-years-old, your ticket will be €40 cheaper than if you are 26-and-over for a three-day pass, and €20 cheaper for a one-day pass. Additionally, all under-18s can enter for free when accompanied by an adult.

There are also discount codes for active members of a Ducati Official Club (DOC). To find your nearest DOC, use Ducati’s search tool, here. There are also offers available on WDW tickets from your local dealer, which you can check out here.
