Ducati North America Employee Team To Race In Inaugural MOTO-ST

© 2006, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By  said Faussett with great enthusiasm. ""It has been a long time since I have run a race at Daytona and this one is going to be exciting since this is the first time a motorcycle race has run under the lights. Our guys are solid and I think our chances of doing well are good. Now the boss is giving me the chance to ride it again.

Cupertino, CA – Ducati North America announces today that an official employee team will compete in the inaugural SunTrust MOTO-ST 8 Hours at Daytona International Speedway. The team, which is aptly named, “Team Daffy Duc / DNA Project Moto ST”, consists of Adam Faussett, Aaron Barry and Jason Routhier, and is managed by Jim McKenna, all of whom are Ducati Area Sales Managers.

The team will be competing in the Grand Sport Twins class of the Moto ST Series and will make the US debut of a race prepared SportClassic PaulSmart 1000 LE that is on loan from Ducati Canada. The motorcycle has already been raced successfully during the 2006 Canadian Thunder series, where it was a consistent front runner and contender for the championship.

The official Ducati employee corporate team will also enjoy the benefit of strong pit support, which is a key element in endurance racing success. Team Daffy Duc will have access to the talented crew from the WyoTech technician training program in Daytona Beach, Florida, which is located just a few miles from the Speedway.

Team Daffy Duc would like to thank, in advance, Kevin Davis and Steve Hicks of Ducati Canada, (who are foolish enough to loan their race bike); and Michael Lock, CEO of Ducati North America who agreed to support the whole scheme. In addition, Van Singley, Ed Rodriguez and the entire staff at WyoTech will all contribute a significant amount of time and energy to the racing effort.

The inaugural event of the SunTrust MOTO-ST Series will take place on Saturday, October 21 at 1:00 PM (ET) with racers taking the Checkers at 9:00 PM (ET).
