Q World Du­cati Week Q £75 for a three-day pass for rider, £50 for pil­lion Q July 1-3 Q Misano Cir­cuit, italy Q www.du­cati.com The World Du­cati Week ( WDW) is a huge three-day event aimed at Du­cati riders from all over the world and this year is an ex­tra-spe­cial one as it will mark 90 years since Du­cati was first es­tab­lished. Not only are there thou­sands of bikes con­gre­gat­ing at the Misano Mo­togp cir­cuit but there are com­pe­ti­tions for the best cus­tomised Du­catis on show, rid­ing tours around the beau­ti­ful lo­cal area and all of the Du­cati rac­ing stars are flown in to meet the fans.

Nor­mally there is some kind of race on Du­cati road bikes fea­tur­ing the Du­cati track stars. There’s a chance to ride on the Misano track and Du­cati staff (from the CEO and down) are on hand to cook a gi­ant bar­beque for Du­catisti on one evening of the event. You don’t have to have a Du­cati to be at the party. This year will also see the in­tro­duc­tion of a spe­cial area for the big-sell­ing Scram­bler model. Lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion is plen­ti­ful as the area is a beach re­sort.
