The MotoGP™ World Championship is not only the oldest in the world, but also the most iconic and exciting championship in motorcycling.
Taking place over 15 countries, the series is the pinnacle of motorcycle racing with riders reaching top speeds of up to 350 km/h on the planet's most technologically-advanced machinery - add 60° lean-angles to that and it is clear to see why the series has such a passionate following.
Shell and Ducati have a rich history, beginning in 1999 with Shell supporting Ducati Corse in the World Superbike Championship, before the two joined forces to contest the MotoGP™ World Championship together. The partnership has since stormed to seven Riders' World Titles in MotoGP™ (2007) and the World Superbike Championship (1999,2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008), amassing over 150 race wins, making it one of the strongest and most successful in the world of premier motorcycle racing.
The 2017 season sees three-time MotoGP™ world champion Jorge Lorenzo join Andrea Dovizioso in the Ducati Team as one of their two factory riders, and marks the 10-year milestone since the clean sweep of the 2007 World MotoGP™ Riders', Teams' and Constructors' Championship with Casey Stoner.
