Ducati Island - COTA 2018

Ducati Island was the place to be for the MotoGP @ COTA !!

They did everything possible for fellow Ducati Owners (and a guest!) - what’s better than free espresso, drinks, & “the best seats in the house” on the starting grid !!

Thank You Ducati !!

....& why I ordered singles instead of doppio (double espresso) so I could go back to reorder (last pic)

That espresso was indeed very good!

Great shot with the location for spectating, however, it felt small and less ceowded than last year

Maybe a sign of less interest, but not bad for the attendees

Kinda disappointed for me, was there for 3 days and def less ppl on the island than last yr. Last yr there were lots of bikes on the Island and more events happening.
Thanks from Phl

I thought this year was sub par compared to the previous couple of years. It was hidden beside the main grandstand and was far away from the rest of the vendors. We took the shuttle over from turn 15 and there were about a quarter of the bikes as last year, a small merchandise booth instead of the large tent from previous years and definitely less people. I was asked multiple times where ducati island was this year because it was great to see.

My overall opinion is that they should move it back to behind turn 15 and they will get more traffic and better exposure. Plus, a better experience for the ducati community.
Thanks from MotoX183 and Panigaleownr85
