Ducati’s popular island of the same name returns to the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) for the U.S. MotoGP in Austin, Texas, April 21-23, and the Laguna Seca World Superbike round in Monterey, Calif., July 7-9. Ducatisti from hither and yon gather to socialize, snack, stash their gear and hang out.

“The ‘Biggest Party In The Paddock’ returns with the popular Ducati Company Store, presentations by Ducati Master Technicians, along with official lifestyle performance partners. The owner hospitality center becomes a self-contained village, which of course includes displays of the new models from the Monster, Scrambler, Multistrada and Diavel families as well as the heavily anticipated SuperSport.”

New MotoGP team rider Jorge Lorenzo will be welcomed, along with fan favorite Andrea Dovizioso, plus new WSBK rider Marco Melandri. The island also features custom X Diavel garages, the offroad land of the Multistrada Enduro, and COTA’s huge headlining entertainment stage. Additional Ducati activities in Austin and Monterey will be announced as the dates draw closer, but you can expect the unexpected.
