2008 June: Ducati Fun Race 2008

Saturday-Sunday (14-15 June 2008), Ducati community in Jakarta and surrounding area got a chance to support the National Motor Racing Championship (Indoprix) at Sentul International Circuit.

At this type of race, several types of Ducati such as Monster, Multistrada, and Sport Touring (ST) as well as Superbike 1098 participated. The spirit of the event is not the real race but only for fun and at the same time increasing the skill and give more experience to the Ducati riders. However, as always, due to safety consideration, all safety gear requirements are fully applied.

All riders and some supporters have arrived at Sentul Circuit at 09.00 a.m. We will start at 10.30 but the sky was quite dark with the dark cloud. It is just about the rain fall down. Uh.. it was abit scarry. I have no cofidence to have a wet race since the track is very slipery if wet.

Ok, it was almost the time. Lets get together for a briefing and praying:

But Danang keep pushing a bit hard and then was fallen down at the exit of “Small S”. He and the bike were ok. Only slide a bit.

Finally we finished still in the wet. We dont really care with the result as far as every one could finish safely and happy.

Didi, Andre and Eko were the winners for free for all class:
