Before leaving for the Nurburgring circuit and the 10th round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship, Team Althea Racing's Carlos Checa took time to visit the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale, Bologna to celebrate with the management and technicians of the famous Italian manufacturer.

Checa took Ducati past the historic milestone of 300 World Superbike race victories onboard his Ducati 1198 in race one of the Silverstone round of the series in July, a victory he dedicated to Ducati by autographing the celebratory graphic that welcomes visitors to the reception area of the Bologna factory. Ducati management thanked Checa for his incredible achievements before celebrations continued with the staff of Ducati Corse in the race department of the company.

The landmark 300th victory for Ducati represented the 9th win for Checa in 2011, but victory also in race two at Silverstone that same day brought his year's total wins to 10, strengthening his lead for the Riders' title and Ducati's for the Manufacturers' title.

Ducati's historic 300 race wins in the World Superbike Championship started with victory for Marco Lucchinelli in the first ever World Superbike race at Donington Park, England in 1988 and continued as 25 more Ducati-mounted riders wrote themselves into the pages of motorcycle racing history.

Legendary riders such as the incredible Carl Fogarty, Doug Polen, Raymond Roche, Troy Corser, Giancarlo Falappa, Neil Hodgson, Piefrancesco Chili, Ben Bostrom, James Toseland, Noriyuki Haga, Troy Bayliss and many others up until the current World Championship leader, Carlos Checa.

The victories have generated a total of 155 Ducati pole positions, 753 podiums, 13 Riders' and 16 Manufacturers' World Championship titles.
