This year, when you see the fairing on the Ducati Desmosedici GP 2018 ridden by teammates Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo, you will notice a familiar logo, the one belonging to Cefla. It is especially easy to see during the most intense phases of the race, when the riders lean through the apex of a bend defying the laws of physics.
Passion, Performance and Innovation are the values upon which this partnership has been built and signed off between Cefla President Gianmaria Balducci and Ducati Corse General Manager Luigi Dall’Igna. Two historical companies, both from the same region: Ducati founded in Bologna in 1926 and Cefla founded in Imola 1932.
This partnership is like the bond we share with a local area, historically associated with technology and innovation, known throughout the world as the Italian Motor Valley. A vision which runs between Imola, with its much-loved race track, and Borgo Panigale, the home of Ducati.
Cefla President Gianmaria Balducci underlines:
“Just like we have done throughout our history, Ducati has reinvented itself time and again, interpreting customer needs, creating new business activities. We are both guided by a quest for continuous improvement: we aim to be on the podium, always driven by a healthy urge to perform at the very best level.”
Ducati Corse General Manager Luigi Dall’Igna adds:
“We are thrilled to welcome Cefla as one of the partners backing us in this year’s MotoGP season. Cefla and
Ducati share numerous values, not only the territorial connection, but also the ambitious goals for which
we are sure our partnership will bring nothing but success.”
