I got there a little after 09:00 and had a wander around before heading over the Ducati Tent/Gazebo/temporary housing thing. Ducati had brought along several bikes such as the 848 Streetfighter, the Diavel, a Multistrada, the 1199s Panigale, but more importantly, this weekend represented the first UK public of the 899 Panigale. I have to say, it's bloody lovely.
As you can see from the photo of the 899 and as I've already mentioned, it was pretty damp on track, which made for some exciting qualifying and racing across the card. Watching the bikes squirm coming onto the start/finish straight under power was a sight to see.
I really enjoyed the day and would really like to thank Ducati for allowing me to spend the day with them.
