Programme structure

This course is limited to a maximum of five participants each day, in order for the instructors to be able to dedicate the time and attention that each individual trainee deserves.

The course includes both a theory section (a briefing with the Ducati Champion and Alessandro Valia) and a series of track sessions. Between one session and the next, participants can meet the Ducati Champion, who will analyse performance during the track session and will give each participant advice to put into practice in the next session, as well as personally showing them the reference points and trajectories to adopt in order to be more effective on the track.

Participants on the Champs Academy enjoy three exclusive track sessions: the track will be given over to this course and to the Track Master course alone. In this manner, pupils will have the chance to make the most of the track and the techniques learned during the day.

All the bikes for the Track Master and Champs Academy will be equipped with the DDA data acquisition system, which ensures the use of telemetry at any time.

Apparel and equipment

The bike used for this course is the fantastic Panigale V4 R, Ducati’s latest long-awaited release.

The required apparel consists of a leather suit, a back protector, full-face helmet, gloves and boots. Those without the required items may hire technical apparel (D|air suit included) when purchasing the course online, subject to availability.
