Four Ducati owners including Janak Deb, Shree Krishna, Balaji and Vinayak Shetty were certified with a DRE certificate of completion after undergoing individual training on the racetrack. The DRE Individual Racetrack Training Sessions provide a rider with an opportunity to train and learn from a DRE Certified Trainer who only imparts individual training to one rider, throughout the day.

The full-day training had sessions each where the riders were taught about the important techniques of riding on track such as correct riding position, correct view, braking, acceleration, braking position, pace management, racing line, etc.
Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “With DRE – Individual Racetrack Training, we are trying to build a foundation for riders who wish to ace it on the track. We did the first sessions at BIC, Noida for our community in the North and now, we’ve brought the training to MMRT, Chennai for our Ducatisti in South India as the idea is to make this a national initiative and give Ducati owners an opportunity to learn individually from experts. We have seen a major shift amongst riders towards motorsports and these trainings will continue to build exceptional skills according to the ability and needs of participants.”
