The passion continues! Bft with Racing - Ducati in the Superbike World Championship 2017

The close relationship between Bft and the world of motorcycle road racing continues: in 2017, the company based in Schio will be the new sponsor of the Racing - Ducati team for another year of major sporting events. 

This partnership, which will bring new emotions, is based on important shared values; first of all the drive for innovation, but also a focus on cutting-edge technology and a passion that allows even better results to be achieved.

As always, the launch of the 2017 team was held at the data centre of Aruba, in Arezzo, on 8 February, where the Superbike riders and team management were presented. The event was filled with adrenaline, emotion, passion, team spirit and determination.

The Superbike championship will kick off on 24 February at the Phillip Island circuit: the riders are ready to get on the Ducati Panigale R 2017 to compete in the race.

The Director of Marketing and Product Portfolio Bft, Diego Malvestio, commented pleased: "Once again, this year, Bft will be racing to win with a focus on “Made in Italy”. The Racing – Ducati team is an esteemed symbol of power, style and performance. This can also be seen in the choice of team sponsors, which only include companies that offer high innovation and technology standards. Bft is therefore particularly proud to be part of this team, and together we will do our best to come out top in each competition".

From this year, the value and competitiveness of the Racing – Ducati team will be further enhanced thanks to Italian rider Marco Melandri, along with the English champion Chaz Davies. All the ingredients are ready to be combined in order to achieve the most ambitious goal, winning the World Championship!

We believe we can do it, come on Racing - Ducati, Be Ahead!
