Ducati Regional Track Experience is back!






Saturday, October 1, 2016. Ducati Regional Track Experience (DRTE), an exclusive gathering for Ducati owners and dealers across Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain has kicked off this year at the Bahrain International Circuit (BIC). Ducatisti from the participating countries marked their own riding experience on the track and took part in this highly anticipated Ducati event in the Middle East. The event is all about the Ducati community, bringing an experience with track courses, gathering, stunt show, pillion ride, BBQ and more.


Organized by Wheels of Arabia, this year’s event brings together 2 main dealers of Ducati: Tri-Star Motorcycles (Kuwait) and Wheels of Arabia (Bahrain), joined forces to power and promote the DRTE 2016. This event was supported by Ducati Motor Holding in Italy and Ducati Riding Experience (DRE).


The event took place at Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) and started with a 30-minutes theoretical class and safety briefing followed by group track sessions and other activities.


Highly qualified instructors from the Ducati riding school- Ducati Riding Experience (DRE) head instructor Dario Marchetti (Italy) and stunt rider Emilio Zamora (Spain) flew to Bahrain to conduct the training course for the participants. Marchetti leads the participants who signed up for the advanced level while Zamora handled the intermediate riders and Bahrain-based, coach-rider Hussain Al Kooheji mentored the beginners. Divided into three different levels – Beginner, Intermediate, and Advance – participants and trainers are much more focused on the areas to improve and as well as each rider’s development. 3 track sessions were given for each level with an off-track training in between the courses to provide the riders ample tips and advice from their respective instructor.


“We are very pleased to have this event for the second year in a row and we are looking forward to continuing what we have started for the Ducati owners in the GCC countries,” said Mr. Abdulrahman Almoayed, Director of Wheels of Arabia. “We are also excited to have the other dealers with us, making this the first event of its kind for Ducati in the Middle East.” He added.


In between the sessions, amazing stunt shows were performed by stunt rider and coach Emilio Zamora. Entertaining the crowd with his fantastic stunt skills and tricks while riding Ducati motorcycles is one of the great experiences he had left for all DRTE 2015 attendees.


People that gathered enjoyed the program where over 20 Ducatis participated on the course, while other owners who did not join the track activities made their way to witness this yearly event as Ducatisti gathering. Families and friends of the participants were also present to support.


Following the last year’s success, which was a remarkable one, this year’s event was bigger and better. On its second year already, the event is the first to bring together Ducatisti from across GCC countries to participate in the BIC. The event is expected to be held next year as well with the involvement of more participants as the Ducati community grows.
