Ducati UK announces the Riding Experiences program for 2023 featuring Michele Pirro and Chaz Davies


Following the success of 2022’s events, Ducati UK announced a full program of track Riding Experiences for 2023 with the participation of professional riders like Michele Pirro and Chaz Davies, as instructors.

Ducati’s experience programme has been expanded with the DRE Academy, making its UK debut and its first European appearance outside of Italy.

Formed in 2003, the DRE (Ducati Riding Experience) project has seen over 28,000 participants through its courses using Ducati motorcycles, enjoying an unparalleled combination of emotion, fun, and safety.

In collaboration with Silverstone Circuit, the DRE Racetrack Academy will take place from May 16th – 18th, with the second day fully dedicated to the track experience.

The course will offer exclusive track rides alongside celebrity Instructors such as Michele Pirro, Karel Abraham, Chaz Davies and many chief instructors directly from Ducati HQ, such as Dario Marchetti and Ducati’s Test Rider Alessandro Valia.

The event is available for just 60 participants to maintain an almost one-to-one level of guidance, and it includes everything for the ultimate track experience: from checking in to the Hilton Silverstone Hotel with a track walk and Italian dinner with your favourite instructors, to full support throughout the day and of course a fully equipped Ducati Panigale to use on track.

DRE offers a variety of different levels: more experienced riders can sample the maximum performance of the race-bred Ducati Panigale V4 S on the Advanced course, while less experienced riders can enjoy the Intermediate level to hone their skills.
