things remain the same as last year. We also have added some things that will
make the race weekend of the year
even more fun. Just keep on reading.

Some other cup organizers

to fit all wishes in the schedule.
All races (except Supermono) consist of two
qualification sessions of 20 minutes and a race. Entry fee is €185 (DCN members
receive a €25 discount). You can do an extra race on your first qualification,
provided you start with the same bike. Entry fee for this race is €90 (DCN
members receive an extra €10 discount).
Registration for the races opens on Monday 3
march 20.00h (CET). You can find the
registration tool on www.ducaticlub.nl
New for this year is the
final race! In this race, the fastest 44 finishers of all racing classes pick
up the glove one more time in this final race. The winner is the Ducati Club Race Champion 2014!!
The entry for this race
opens during the race-Sunday and will be done in the paddock. Admission is
based on the laptimes during the races. Further details follow soon.
Regulations stay roughly
the same as last year. Specific attention is asked this year for the use of a
fluid absorbing mat when repairing your bike.
A second change where we’re
still working on is related to the fact that we noticed with some riders in the
open Ducati classes unexplainable big differences in laptimes (10 seconds per
lap) between qualifying and the race. Some riders might have done this to be
able to start in a lower class where they can consequently easily beat everyone
and win the race. We do not tolerate this kind of behavior. We will check lap
times and are working on regulations in order to prevent this kind of behavior
when and if it is done on purpose. Fair play is the
starting point. Further details follow soon.
Like every year, we offer a
trackday on Friday. The trackday consists of four sessions of 20 minutes and a
session of 3 or 4 test starts. The trackday
cost €200. Entry is
only open for participants of the race weekend.
Foreign racers need a
starting permit from their racing union for the Ducati Club Race.
Fanclubs, race freaks, admirers
of classic bikes, Ducatisti and many other visitors will visit This year’s Ducati
Club Race. You can visit us one day or more if you like. There is a camping
place for visitors on the paddock. Tickets cost 12,50 for the whole weekend.
You can also get your tickets in our webshop on www.ducaticlub.nl
starting from 3 march.
The tariff for campers: one
person, one bike and one tent cost €25 for the weekend. One person, one car +
caravan or mobile home cost €40. You can arrange your camping place in the
Welcome Center during the race weekend.

don’t hesitate contacting us.
See you at Assen!!
