Watch Ducati 1199 Panigale R Scorching the COTA Asphalt [Video]
They've not ridden the GP13 bikes, but were close to the top performance, as their visit at the COTA was occasioned by the launch of the Ducati 1199 Panigale R. Funny how Ducati has chosen this circuit and not another one for the event, isn't it?
Anyway, we're ever so glad to see Hayden getting a chance to ride on the COTA asphalt before the MotoGP season kicks off. Their racing machines are not in their best shape, and we know that having missed the private tests leaves the competition with a serious tactical advantage.
Now, that at last these two Ducati riders have met the COTA, the gap has been somewhat reduced, though nothing compares to the proper tests. Enjoy the 1199 Panigale R video, as we've already seen it ten times or so, already.
