Moto Rapido Ducati’s Scott Smart has given the new Ducati Panigale its track debut at the official Brands Hatch British Superbike test today.


The former British 250GP Champion was giving the bike its shakedown today to iron out any problems with the new Motec electronics and to also get his seating position correct before the test moves to Snetterton tomorrow and Smart can put in some meaningful times. Doodson Jentin Ducati’s Tom Tunstall has also taken to the track today.
