Alfa Romeo have teamed up with Ducati Corse for the SBK Superbike World Championship series. No, Alfa aren’t building a superbike just yet – they’ll only be the official sponsor, the official car and the safety car supplier for World Superbikes. In fact, Alfa Romeo will be present at all 13 SBK World Championship race meetings (11 in Europe, one in Australia, and one in Qatar).
The Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon TI will be the official safety car in the 2007 World Superbikes series and Alfa Romeo will extend cooperation to the Ducati Corse team in MotoGP as well as the SBK Word Championship. Alfa Romeo will even take part in the fifth World Ducati Week, which will be held in the Romagna region of Northern Italy from the 28th of June to the 1st of July this year.
The 2007 World Superbikes series kicks off on the 24th of February, at the Losail circuit in Doha, Qatar. Start checking your local television schedules now!
