2020 Ducati Revs Laguna Seca
Ducati owners get a chance to spin laps at Laguna Seca with a few fast names.
Ducati’s famous Revs event made its debut on the West Coast following the final round of the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship at Laguna Seca.
Ducati Revs has been going for 15 years and allows Ducati owners from all over the country to ride in a controlled environment and under the tuition of some big-time American racing legends. Roger Hayden, Jake Zemke and current MotoAmerica Ducati rider Kyle Wyman were all on hand to pass on information on bike setup, cornering lines and body positioning.
“This was a good opportunity to come here at Laguna Seca after MotoAmerica to have an end-of-year celebration,” says Ducati North America Marketing Manager, Phil Read. “We’ve had Revs on the East Coast plenty of times, but this is our first time at Laguna Seca. Our original plan was to do as many MotoAmerica rounds as possible where we do a Ducati ticket package—parking, meet and greet, tech sessions, coffee bar—because we knew with MotoAmerica we would have more presence racing this year with Kyle [Wyman] and later Lorenzo [Zanetti]. 2020 threw a wrench in that plan, but we held a Revs event following the Jersey round, and this is the biggest one we’ve had so far.”
The Laguna Seca Revs set customers back $400 for the day and for that they got seven track sessions (thankfully free of the infamous Laguna Seca noise regulations), plus lunch and a chance to hang with Hayden and Co, and we were there to soak in the action. CN
