Ducati 1199 Panigale S 10.18 Sec Quarter Mile Drag

Here's one of the first official drag races tape with the Ducati 1199 Panigale S. Nothing particularly spectacular since it's about a stock Ducati, with absolutely no modifications and definitely no drag preparations to it.
Even so, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S managed to run the quarter mile in 10.18 seconds, with Wayne and Todd Patterson earning the runner up prize. While the 10.18 sec is no match for the Pattersons' 8 second run with the Turbo Ducati 749, this race lays the foundation for the future events.

Wayne did his best but the bike, as it was, was no drag beast: “I couldn’t keep the front wheel down it was still up at about the 200 metre mark. You will here the bike starting to wheelspin at the end of the track as I got out of the groove a bit at about 125mph (201 km/h)” he adds.

The Ducati 1199 Panigale S will be lowered and is going to race again most likely next week, and hopefully we get to see awesome results. And we just can't wait for a heavily modified Panigale soon!
