Fort Lauderdale, FL (July 26, 2011) -- Ducati.net is excited to announce the inaugural Barber NCR Ducstock Party at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham AL, October 7-10. The special "event inside an event" is sponsored by Italian designer and manufacturer of exclusive motorcycles and high performance parts, NCR s.r.l..
Ducstock will offer something for all motorcycle enthusiasts as it brings together the old and the new through a host of activities. Ducstock will feature a unique display of historic Ducati motorcycles, an impressive line-up of past and present Ducati heroes, bike and sound contests, rider skill tests, a Ducati artist showcase, a track day event and the world wide introduction of the new NCR M4.
"We have chosen Ducstock as the event where we will present our new street legal titanium framed motorcycle, the NCR M4" said Joe Ippoliti, COO of NCR. "The M4 is a ultra lightweight motorcycle that incorporates many advanced technologies but packaged into a very simple design that has always been a NCR trademark... Performance, lightweight and beauty. All driven by passion."
NCR will have a full display of parts and motorcycles under the main tent at the center of the weekend's Ducstock activities located in a special infield area set aside exclusively by Barber Motorsports Park.
Adjoining the NCR display, the Ducstock Motorcycle Show will highlight the 30th anniversary of the Ducati TT2/TT1, by featuring an impressive collection of Ducati TT's and F1's including never seen before restorations. Additionally, the exhibit will include newly restored Ducati GP singles, Rich Lambrechts/Desmopro project Cafe 31 Cafe Racer TV build, Monster challenge Monsters, an eye-popping 2011 custom Diavel as well as a special presentation of Jason DiSalvo's Daytona 200 winning 848.
Numerous special guests have been organized to attend the event. The VIP list includes Ducati icons Cook Neilson, Paul Smart, Reno Leoni and Phil Schilling as well as Team Latus Motors Racing pilot, Jason DiSalvo. This group will be sharing their unique Ducati experiences with owners throughout weekend.
"There is no better motorcycle destination to host the year's largest owner's party," said Vicki Smith, Ducati.net founder. "Barber is a great partner and we are fortunate to have the backdrop of the world's premier motorcycle museum, which will be featuring a special Ducati display, to complement our event."
To cap off Ducstock, Ducati.net arranged with the Penguin Roadracing School to extend the Ducstock weekend into Monday, October 10 with a special track day event, Ducati Revs Alabama.
