The Ducati Challenge is the most exciting one-brand motorcycle competition in Europe. The racing aficionados of the Bologna marque, strive to create a friendly atmosphere in which competition and respect are combined. The Ducati Challenge is open for participants from all nationalities, with a passion for racing his or her Ducati on the most prestigious circuits in Germany, The Netherlands or elsewhere in Europe.
Originating back to 1979, the Dutch Ducati Club provides Ducatisti a unique opportunity to enjoy club racing at its best during the world renowned Ducati Club Races held at the TT Circuit Assen. For some of these racing enthusiasts once a year was not enough. They wanted to share the pleasure of competing together on official race tracks, such as the TT Circuit of Assen, more often. With that aim Leo Fleuren, Ton de Bruin and Cecile van Hattem started the Dutch Ducati Dealer Cup (3D Cup) in 2005. During 10 years of existence the 3D Cup has provided exciting and safe racing, but above all a lot of fun to 200 Ducatisti from all over Europe. In 2016 five riders took over the organisation, they founded the Red Drivers Association which organizes the Ducati Challenge today.
Ducati Challenge 2020
The Ducati Challenge is still based on the same principles that has made its predecessor a great success: an annual competition for like-minded Ducatisti to engage with their bikes in international motorcycle racing events on official tracks throughout Europe, and enjoy! After more than 12 years this formula stands strong with a group of about 30 riders. The majority are experienced riders, with us since the very beginning. Of course we would like to welcome more enthusiasts to keep our Ducati club racing alive! If you are a passionate Ducati rider, looking to try your skills on the race tracks with other Ducatisti that value a variety of tracks, pleasure, sensible riding and a fair share of competitiveness, then take up the Ducati Challenge!
