Ducati Rally Scheduled In California


Aug 24, 2005

From a press release issued by Ducati North America:

The 2005 edition of La Ducati Day will take place in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountain town of La Honda, California.

Cupertino, CA - The Ducati MH900evoluzione Owners Club, Doc Wong, Nichols Sportbike Service and Ducati North America present LDD2005 in Downtown La Honda (renamed "La Ducati") on Sunday, October 23rd, 2005, from 9 A.M. until 6 P.M.

Events of the day include; the Meguiar's sponsored Concorso Ducati, the Ducati Garage Challenge, the Etymotic Research Sponsored Ducati Music Challenge, Technical Seminars, the Aftershocks and Lindemann Engineering Sponsored Sportbike Suspension Setup Clinic, a vendor court, food, raffles and charity auction.

Free event admission. All proceeds from entry fees, auctions, sportbike suspension setup clinic and raffles will benefit the La Honda Fire Brigade. These are the good men and women that rescue us when we crash on that side of the mountain, so helping them helps all of us.

Celebrities expected to attend and sign autographs include renowned racer Eric Bostrom, rider of the Parts Unlimited Ducati Austin AMA 999 Superbike, Neil Hodgson, former World Superbike Champion in his AMA debut, Doug Polen, two time AMA and World Superbike Champion, and world famous long distance record holder Gary Eagan, who will also be giving a seminar on his sport touring adventures.

For more information, please visit the event website at www.ducatiowners.com/LDD2005 or contact John Clelland, LDD2005 Chairman, at [email protected]

Directions: La Honda California is located west of Redwood City, on Highway 84, between Highways 35 and 1, in Northern California.

We hope you will make the ride up into La Honda, situated in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, and help us rename the city "La Ducati" for the day of the event.

Ducati has won eleven of the last thirteen World Superbike Championship titles and more individual victories than the competition put together.
