A modern WorldSBK icon: relive the Racing – Ducati liveries of the past

From 2015 onwards, the striking colours of the Racing – Ducati outfit have been present in WorldSBK…

As the 2021 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship continues to warm up, the first of the factory teams gets ready to unveil their 2021 livery. The Racing – Ducati outfit has become a modern iconic livery and 2021 will see the resplendently striking livery return as Scott Redding and Michael Ruben Rinaldi spearhead the Italian marque’s challenge for the title, in a bid to return the WorldSBK crown back to Bologna for the first time in ten years.

Stepping in as title sponsor of the official Ducati outfit in 2015, Racing – Ducati took the Ducati Panigale V-Twin to its first victory in WorldSBK, courtesy of Chaz Davies at Aragon. Since then, they’ve finished second in the riders’ title five times (three times with Davies and once with Alvaro Bautista and Scott Redding), whilst also securing the Teams’ Championship in 2020, with Redding and Davies.

In 2021, the big change is the return of the #21 to a factory Ducati as Michael Ruben Rinaldi steps up, becoming the tenth different rider to ride for the team, joining names such as Chaz Davies, Troy Bayliss and current teammate Scott Redding to fashion the livery. With 52 wins achieved for the team since 2015, they’ll aim to add to that tally.
