Ducati continues preparations for 2013 World Superbike season. Carlos Checa confirmed as official rider.

Cooperation with Team Althea Racing discontinued.

Ducati has announced its plans for the 2013 World Superbike Championship and confirmed 2011 Superbike Championship Carlos Checa’s contract has been renewed. The Spanish rider will now continue development of the new Ducati 1199 Panigale for its World Superbike debut next season.

Ducati claims cooperation will remain between Team Althea Racing and the factory but hasn’t stated on what basis at this point. More details are to follow.
