ITAL­IAN SEN­SA­TION

BIKE (UK) - - BIG PICTURE -

Top­ping off 2018’s World Du­cati Week is the Race of Cham­pi­ons: ten laps of Misano so spec­tac­u­lar the Ital­ian Air Force turns up to watch. De­spite race ex­haust, livery and slicks, each of the bikes rid­den by Lorenzo, Bayliss and oth­ers is just a 2018 Du­cati Pani­gale V4S. To demon­strate, all twelve rac­ers peep their horns be­fore race start. Ital­ian Michele Pirro leads from pole to win: his fastest lap is just 3.7s un­der WSB Pani­gale pace.
