Casey Stoner Out of Action for 3 races Due to Health Problems,
Mika Kallio to substitute for him on Ducati Team

Monday Aug 10th 2009 - Casey Stoner will not take part in the next three Grands Prix, and will next return to action at the beginning of October for the Grand Prix of Portugal. The Australian has suffered physical problems since the Catalunya GP, which have caused him severe fatigue during the last five races. Stoner took this difficult decision after having consulted with sports doctors who have looked after him for many years back home in Australia. At this challenging time, he has the support of the team and the whole of Ducati who together with Stoner have enjoyed racing at the top of the sport for the last three seasons.

Mika Kallio will join Nicky Hayden in the Ducati Marlboro Team for the next three races, thanks to the great spirit of collaboration between Ducati and the satellite team owned by Paolo Campinoti. Kallio is in his debut season in MotoGP and has already proved to be very competitive on the GP9. For the Brno race, his place in the Pramac Team will be taken by Michel Fabrizio.

CASEY STONER, Ducati Marlboro Team (3rd in the championship on 150 points)
“After five extremely difficult races due to my health, I returned to Australia to visit the sports doctors who have looked after me for many years. We have taken the difficult decision not to contest the next three rounds of the championship, to allow my body time to recover from the recent stress. The doctors believe that during the Barcelona race I was suffering from a virus, and, that I subsequently pushed my body too hard, leading to problems that have caused my fatigue since then. The doctors are continuing with many tests to try to understand these problems and make sure it does not happen again. I have spoken with Ducati and thank them for their understanding at this time. I feel very sorry for the factory, my team, my sponsors and the fans and I am also disappointed because the bike in the last races has been very competitive. I will be doing everything possible to come back at full strength for Portugal.

MIKA KALLIO, (15th in the championship on 34 points)
“When I took the call I could hardly believe it, but then I talked to my manager and I realised it was true. I am proud to be racing the next three events with the Ducati Marlboro Team. Obviously I’m not expecting to suddenly be a second quicker, because our bikes are very similar to the official machines, but I hope to be able to pick up some good results for the team. I would particularly like to thank Paolo Campinoti, who has allowed me to enjoy this incredible opportunity. It will be a real honour for me. Nonetheless I would like to send my best wishes to Casey, and I hope to see him back out on track as soon as possible.”

LIVIO SUPPO, MotoGP Project Director
“It’s obviously difficult for us to contemplate the next three races without Casey, but it’s clear that the most important thing at this time is his health. Since his debut with us in Qatar in 2007, Casey has won 18 times as well as taking countless podium finishes, becoming one of the top riders in the World Championship in the process. We have already overcome tough times together, like when he had to undergo surgery on his scaphoid towards the end of last season. We are united whether in times of success or in times of difficulty. We are confident that the doctors will help solve the issues that have affected him since early June and that Casey will be able to take part in the last races of the year in peak fitness. Then we can prepare for 2010 in the best way possible. A big thank you to Paolo Campinoti who as always has proved to be a great supporter and an ideal partner for Ducati, allowing Mika to ride with the Ducati Marlboro Team for the next three races. Mika is having a really positive debut year in MotoGP and we are delighted that he will be alongside Nicky in the official works team. In his place at Brno in the Pramac Team will be Michel Fabrizio, who I am certain will know how to give the right kind of performance on one of his preferred tracks.”

The Brno circuit snakes its way around the hills that border the Czech Republic’s second city and is one of the jewels in the crown of motorcycle racing. Built in 1987 to replace the old and dangerous road circuit that had previously hosted Grand Prix racing, the ‘new’ track retains some of the original characteristics and for this reason it is much to the liking of the riders. With track width reaching 15m in some places, its fast and mixed layout features fast direction changes, chicanes and elevation changes. The extra width rewards a precise racing line and those continual elevations changes, with several downhill braking areas, require a perfect bike set-up, a talented rider and good tyre life. Engine performance is also an important factor, with the long straights giving the MotoGP machines chance to really stretch their legs.


Circuit Record: Casey Stoner (Ducati - 2008), 1’57.199 - 164.618 km/h
Best Pole: Valentino Rossi (Yamaha - 2006), 1’56.191 - 167.403 km/h
Circuit length: 5.403km
MotoGP Race 2009: 22 laps (118.866 km)
MotoGP Schedule 2009: 14:00 CET

Podium 2008: 1st Valentino Rossi, 2nd Toni Elias, 3rd Loris Capirossi
Pole 2008: Casey Stoner (Ducati), 2’11.657 – 147.738 Km/h

2010 Ducati Multistrada

Ducati's new 2010 Superbike Powered Multistrada Replacement
England's MCN spotted Ducati’s latest adventure touring motorcycle while it was being tested, they captured some accurate images and this sneak release press photo for the the latest creation of the Bologna house.

Aimed to replace the Multistrada model, the bike is built around the water-cooled 1099cc V-twin engine of the Ducati Streetfighter, with the engine detuned through the fuelling system and a more rstrictive catalitic converter equipped for greater sport-touring performance.

Among the new features is the front fairing which now longer turns with the handlebars. The single-sided swingarm remains, the wheels and brakes get upgrade to superbike model specifications,while the right side unveils an awkward looking exhaust. The collector box is positioned under the engine .

Comfort and appropriate styling is a must for the new Ducati so while the generous bodywork allows for plenty of room both for rider and passenger, the windscreen is adjustable as seen from the hinges on the side mounting. With a pair of aggressive ram air scoops at the front of the front fender and 1098’s LCD dashboard, this bike looks ready for this autumn’s EICMA show in Milan.

Mat Mladin Announces
His Retirement

August 1st 2009 - 6-time US Superbike champion Mat Mladin, who has dominated the series for nearly the last decade, he won't be racing at all after the conclusion of the 2009 DMG Superbike season.

Mladin did have talks with World Superbike teams in the early part of the 2009 season in regards to 2010. Mladin's current Suzuki contract ends this year and many had hoped he would move to World Superbike in 2010. Ben Spies' success in that series this year makes it an easy guess that Mladin could go there and win races, if not the championship.

However, Mladin said today that he will not race after this season.

Mladin Withdraws from Heartland Park AMA Superbike Due to Safety Concerns
Friday, July 31, 2009 - "Due to safety concerns I will not compete in this weekend's round of the AMA Superbike championship in Topeka," said current AMA Superbike Championship points leader Mat Mladin in an issued statement today.

"It is important to note that Topeka is a newly sanctioned round on the championship schedule. It is also important to note that Topeka has made changes to the track, but unfortunately, as is the case too many times, the track approval process was flawed and we arrived at a facility that was not ready for our caliber of competition.

This is 2009, and the days of showing up to race tracks that we know nothing about and have not been allowed to test at because of the AMA/DMG new rules regarding our testing are raising serious safety issues.

We race 200hp motorcycles where with constant development, the brakes, the tires, the chassis, the engines and the complete package as a whole gets faster every year. With this development the corner speeds and straight line speeds get faster and faster. With these extra speeds the margin of safety gets much smaller if the racetracks are not made safer.

We go to a few venues that still have some safety issues, but many of these venues have made vast improvements over the past few years. Sanctioning new venues with numerous safety flaws is just plain ridiculous.

Why do people have to get hurt seriously or worse before a racetrack is made safe before adding it to our National Championship schedule?

The adage of "they are going to make changes" doesn't cut it after someone has hit a concrete wall.

With acceptance of these new venues with obvious safety flaws, the bar has been dropped in regards to safety, opening the door to many other circuits that are not acceptable or fit for racing modern day motorcycles.

I will never accept the lowering of safety standards for the sake of a few people making money. It is the young kids, the future of the sport that will bear the brunt of the worst of this. One day, the teams and riders need to come together for the well being of each other.

Last but not least, I thank my fans for their continual support over the years. Without you, none of this racing is possible, and I'm very upset about not having a safe platform to put on a show for you guys this weekend, but I also know that none of you want to see me busted up in the bottom of a concrete wall or ten foot deep ditch. I look forward to seeing you all at VIR in two weeks. - Regards Mat"
