  • A big 5 stars for Eugene & Sylvain….not to mention the “Bologna Bullet” Michael Fabrizio of the Aprilia Roma Red Devils. Ducati only has 1 chance to win and that is Carlos. Ducati need to focus on giving Carlos Checa anything he needs to win or stay healthy in 2013. For Aprilia this could be the start of a domination of SBK. Ducati need to find more support teams for the 1099 Race program. I am looking forward to testing in the new version of both the Aprilia and Ducati “Corse” in the USA. But the new Aprilia appears so much better than the 2012.
