Ducati North America issued a press release May 14 announcing a rally to be held in October in Las Vegas. The text of the release follows:

“Ducati Revs America Scheduled for October 26-28, 2001 in Las Vegas

“The streets of Las Vegas will come alive to the roar of thousands of V-twins this October as Ducati enthusiasts from across the nation gather for the inaugural Ducati Revs America (DRA).

“Modelled on the famous World Ducati Weekend, which is held biennially in Italy, DRA promises to be the largest gathering of Ducati motorcycles in America.

“The event, hosted by Ducati North America, was conceived after the huge success of the two World Ducati Weekends. Discussions had taken place to expand the Ducati celebration beyond its Italian homeland, and America is the first country to run with the idea. Organizers plan to use many of the features that make WDW so successful, and then add just the right amount of American flavour.

“There will be track time available on the 1.1 mile Las Vegas Speedway road course for riders on their own machines, plus demo rides on the latest Ducati models, riding instruction, technical workshops, industry displays, stunt riding exhibitions, history seminars and much more. Some big names from the World Superbike scene will be in attendance, alongside some of our best local heroes.

“Motorcycles will dominate the three days but there is a smorgasbord of other entertainment for participants. The headlining band will be named soon for the live concert. Richard Petty Driving Experience is giving DRA participants the chance to drive in a Nascar car, Sotheby’s will auction motorcycle memorabilia to raise money for Riders for Health and an authentic Italian village will give visitors a feel of the Mediterranean.

“You don’t need to own a Ducati to attend DRA; the event is open to riders of all makes and models. You simply need a passion for the Italian marque.

“Ducati North America has negotiated discount hotel rates and bike transport for DRA participants as well as tours of the Art of the Motorcycle exhibition, direct from the Guggenheim Museum, which will show throughout October in Las Vegas. Most activities center on the Las Vegas Speedway but the grand finale will be the group parade on Sunday evening, down Las Vegas’ main drag, to conclude the three-day event. With thousands of motorcycles expected to attend, it will be a spectacular sight.

“Later this month you will be able to reserve your place at DRA by visiting the Ducati e-store at the Ducati website www.ducati.com. Forms to register by mail or FAX will be included in the DRA2001 brochure that will be available at your local Ducati dealer by mid June.

“For further information regarding DRA visit the Ducati websites www.ducatiusa.com or www.ducati.com.”
