Ducati announced today that it will be officially launching the DRE Racetrack Training Programme in India. The announcement comes following the recent DRE Racetrack Certification that was held in Thailand, where Mr. Gurvinder Singh and Mr. Anand Dharmaraj were certified as official DRE Racetrack Instructors, by global DRE Instructors like Dario Marchetti, Technical Director and Instructor Manager for DRE and Alessandro Valia, Official Ducati tester and DRE Instructor who together, have decades of experience when it comes to racing, and training.
The DRE was born on the racetrack and so it is here that it continues to offer a very important part of the ‘experience’, thanks to the different courses subdivided according to the ability and needs of participants. The DRE Racetrack focuses on teaching, enjoyment and adrenaline where riders are provided world class training from the most revered riders on the racetrack, while riding the most beautiful and high-performance bikes in the Ducati Superbike family.
Ducati India aims to bring a part of this programme to India and the training sessions will be spearheaded by Mr Gurvinder Singh and Mr Anand Dharmaraj. Gurvinder Singh, from Redline Racing is a multiple times JK Tyre Superbike Championship winner and last year he became the first rider in India to win the Championship on a stock Panigale V4 while riding for the Ducati India team.
Anand Dharamaraj, who is also the chief trainer for Bengaluru based Indimotard TWO track school, has thousands of kilometers on the racetrack under his belt and is also a Ducati certified DRE Riding Academy Instructor, from 2018.
Both the riders went through an exhaustive theory test on day one and underwent complex riding drills on the racetrack on day two before they were finally awarded this certification. With this development in place, Ducati India will not only host more DRE Track Days events but, will also develop one on one training sessions for the Ducatisti, who wish to hone their track riding skills and become more competitive if they wish to race in the Ducati Race cup or the National Championships.
