Team Avintia will race with Ducati again in 2018. The official announcement came this morning in Austin. Next season, the Spanish team will have two Desmosedici GP17 machines at their disposal. The collaboration with the manufacturer from Borgo Panigale began in 2014 and next year will be the 5th year of the partnership.
“We had some more options for next season, but the confidence showed by Paolo Ciabatti and Gigi Dall’Igna over these years made the decision easy to sign so early in the season - said Raul Romero, CEO of the team - We feel incredible support from the factory and the guarantee to have this year’s factory bikes for next season is really important.”
