Andrea hails from a Misano area, won a Motorcycle Grand Prix there final year and is going to attract many additional fans. We’re already intensely vehement to see how he’s going to transport in his DTM debut. That he’s holding time out for a DTM between dual MotoGP races is illusory and not to be taken for postulated during all. I’d like to quite appreciate Ducati’s CEO Claudio Domenicali and Luigi Dall’Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse, who concluded to this guest entry. That’s a large thing for a DTM and for motorsport in general.”

In both of a past dual years, a Italian finished runner-up in a universe championship with Ducati. After 4 of 19 races in a 2019 season, he is ranked in third position of a MotoGP standings, with only a three-point necessity to a personality Marc Márquez. On creation his DTM debut, Dovizioso is now following in a footsteps of famous motorcycle racers like John Surtees, Mike Hailwood and Johnny Cecotto, all of whom were successful on dual and 4 wheels – Cecotto also in a DTM.

“I adore cars and we feel propitious to be means to competition with a Audi RS 5 DTM,” says Andrea Dovizioso. “It’s tough to find a time to ready for it during a MotoGP deteriorate though we am unequivocally looking brazen to contest in such a high-level context as a DTM. The automobile is amazing, though it’s a opposite plea compared with my Desmosedici GP and we need to get prepared, so I did many laps in a simulator before stepping into it for a initial time. Misano is a special lane for each Italian motorist and a place where we scored an implausible win final year so I’m really vehement and grateful for this opportunity.”
