Terlepas dari Lorenzo dan Spies yg tampil sangat baik dan membukukan waktu tercepat pertama dan kedua, Stoner sepertinya juga langsung tune in dgn Honda barunya dan membukukan waktu tercepat ke-3.

2008 April: Superbike National Championship Series 1

After participating two series of National Superbike Championship last year, some members of Ducati community participated in 2008 National Superbike Championship Series. The First Series was held on 4-5 April 2008. As usual, the race will be held at Sentul International Circuit. Friday (4 April 2008) was for FP, Saturday (5 April 2008) for QTT, and Sunday (6 April 2008) for the Race.

This year, there are 2 classes of the National Motorcycle Racing Championship namely Superstock 600 and Superbike (Free For All). Theoretically the Superbike/FFA class should for more pro riders. However, most of non-pro Ducati community ride 1000cc engine, and although we are NOT pro-racers, the Superbike/FFA class is the only class we could participate in.


Hm.. based on QTT result on Saturday 5 Ducati riders are eligible to participate in the race. 2 other Ducati riders did not pass the minimum lap time limit of 1:59.

This is a picture before QTT, Saturday 5 April 2008:

From left to right: Setiawan 1098s, Steven 916, Nugroho 1098s, Didi (this time use his R6 which would be faster than his Ducati ST2), Jede S2R1000, Ramos 996, Ochi 1098. Eko (S4) come late and other 2 member of Ducati community who are also member of R15 (who will participate on their Honda or Yamaha) namely Yus and Bona were not seen in the picture.

2007 Nov-Dec: Ducati 2007 Year End Track Activities

After participating for the first time at the National Supersport and Superbike Championship, the Ducati Community starts feeling comfortable and enjoying to participate in such kind of race. Of course a minimum skill and familiarity with the circuit would be needed but overall for us (as non profesional racer) as far as we do not push beyond each individual limit, it was not as scary as imagined.   This is the report of Ducati Community’s participation on the last race series of National Supersport and Superbike Championship on December 9, 2007, on which I participated.

2007 September – Charity Ride to Serang


Sunday September 23, 2007 was still in a fasting (Ramadhan) month for all Muslim around the world, including in Indonesia. Most us who were fasting are not allowed eating or drinking during the day. As part of the fasting spirit to care to the others, especially those who are under poverty or need assistance, fasting month is always a good time to share and do some social activities. Some of Ducatisti take the challenge to ride back and forth from Jakarta to Serang while fasting for a charity activity (donating some basic foods) to those needed in Serang area. The distance between Serang-Jakarta-Serang is about 200 Km and riding during the day (which might be hot day) without drinking and meals will be an interesting challenge.
