Moto Rapido Ducati

Moto Rapido Ducati was formed in 2002 by two Ducati enthusiasts who set up a small independent shop servicing, selling, tuning and racing Ducati. In 2005 Moto Rapido were appointed as a fully authorised Ducati dealer and Ducati Performance specialist winning 7 awards including Dealer of the Year 2013.

This independent dealership based in Winchester now enjoys a close relationship with Ducati UK and the racing division of Ducati Motor Holdings, Ducati Corse. Moto Rapido racing has developed over the years from club level racing to the British Superbike Championship competing in British Superstock and the 848 Challenge to more recently racing in the premier class with the 1199 Panigale. The team has been at the forefront of the racing development of the Panigale in the UK contesting the British Superbike Championship even before a factory Panigale had been entered on the world stage.

This season will see the 2016 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 champion Taylor Mackenzie return to the British Superbike Championship as he rides for the Ducati dealership-based Moto Rapido Ducati team.

“I’ve got a completely new challenge ahead of me with a new bike so I’d like to start with finishing inside the top ten and then keep chipping away all season. I’ve raced in BSB long enough to know how hard it is and there’s no guarantees with racing either so we’ll just keep our heads down as a team and work as hard as we can. Everything is in place for me to have my best year yet so I’ll be doing everything in my power to make sure it is.”
