Sete will be testing Ducati’s GP8 and GP9 machines at the Mugello circuit next week, alongside Vittoriano Guareschi, Ducati’s regular test and development rider. ‘I'm very excited. It has been a while since I have been on a GP bike, but I'm in perfect shape. It’s just a test, but I'll give my absolute maximum. I can't wait to enjoy, once again, the feeling of bringing a MotoGP machine to its limit,’ said Gibernau.
‘We were happy to see Sete so excited at the possibility of riding a MotoGP bike again, and it was this enthusiasm that led to the possibility of organising this test together. By having Sete and Vito testing alongside each other, we will be able to carry out a wide range of more intensive tests with our GP8 and GP9 machines,’ said Filippo Preziosi, who heads Ducati Corse.
