Racing Ducati series

Does anyone have any details on the Ducati series racing? Monsters, 900ss & water cooled twins. I'm interested in getting back into racing so it's either KRC or ducati. MRO just to expensive and at the young age of 37 with family, well I enjoyed when I did...

If you tell us where you are, one of us might let you have a look at our dd bikes.

How come there are 748 / 916's shape ducati's in the picture?
Is there another series running somewhere, last year whilst marshalling at snetterton KRC 6hr I saw lots of Ducati's liquid and air cooled in the paddock form the day defore.

They're all 583 or 620 Ducati's. You're allowed to fit a fairing and the 916 style fairing fits on without too many problems, so it's a popular choice.

The DD championship was at the Snetterton KRC round last year, that's why you would have seen us there

Thumbs up MRO to allow the 748 in Thunderbike

Just got some news today that the MRO will be allowing the 748 Ducati to race in their "Thunderbike" series. Before, they have been excluded from the series, but next season its all change! We are hoping to be able to get an entry for the last round at Brands Hatch 7-8 Oct with a 748bp, just to see how competitive it will be, then a nice SP could be built for next year. Rules stay the same as for previous years with a max power of 1 HP per 1.814 KG.
So dig out those 748 trackday bikes and get racing. I have plenty of 748 bits if anyone wants to downsize their 916.

That's the series potentially ruined then. The 748 will be bang on the power:weight limit which no other bike is atm. I was gonna race my 800ss in the series but, I don't think I'll bother now. I'll go get an R instead and add some lead weight to it instead - irrespective of weight, the bike with the most power available at decent engine speed will be fastest down the straights.

I'd need to get my 800 down to 145Kg to be competitive - that just ain't gonna happen. 160kg - no problem but not 145!!
