Welcome to the website of the International Ducati Club Races.
The International Ducati Club Races are an annual event of the Ducati Club Netherlands (DCN).
The DCN is the largest Ducati club in the world with almost 4,000 members. The goal of the DCN is organizing events for Ducatisti and all of the Ducati fans. The DCN organizes about 30 events each year including overnight tours abroad, various Ducati type days and the International Ducati Club Races in May.
What began on October 26, 1979 with a group of 10 participants at the Zolder circuit has become a true race weekend with more than 400 participants at the MotoGP track at Assen circuit. An event where many Ducati Celebrities already have been present, including Loris Capirossi, Troy Bayliss, James Toseland, Carl Fogarty. The weekend is entirely devoted to racing. Racing with mostly Ducati’s but other brands from Europe and the USA are also welcome at the International Ducati Club Races.
The event covers three days.
On the Friday free practice sessions are held. A day where participants can get used to the rapid tarmac of the Assen circuit and prepare the motor optimally for the rest of the weekend. On Saturday there is the qualifying. In two qualifying sessions, participants can try to ride the ultimate round in order to grab the highly desired pole position. Unfortunately, there can only be one rider in this place but the battle for the fastest lap is nevertheless a fierce one. Sunday, is Race day.
