Ducati Corse has announced recently that it has reached an agreement with Davide Tardozzi, who will return to work again with the Borgo Panigale, Italy-based manufacturer after a period of four years. Tardozzi will head up the Ducati team’s organization and logistics in the MotoGP World Championship, reporting directly to Paolo Ciabatti, Ducati Corse Sporting Director and MotoGP Program Director.
Tardozzi, a former racer himself, had a very successful career as Ducati’s team manager in Superbike, collaborating with champions such as Fogarty, Bayliss, Corser, Toseland and Hodgson. He played a key role in the conquest of seven Riders titles in the production-based series. Tardozzi begins his new role with the Ducati Team starting with the first MotoGP test at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia from February 4th to the 6th, just after his 55th birthday.
