The 2018 Ducati TriOptions Cup will kick off at Donington Park (31 April – 2 May) as the championship prepares for its 9th consecutive year of racing. The Cup will continue in its current format as a support series for the British Superbike Championship with eight rounds and sixteen races taking place at major circuits across the UK as well as the traditional overseas round in Assen.
The championship features exclusively this year the 959 Panigale. The twin cylinder Panigale incorporates a 157hp, 955cc Superquadro and benefits from Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), Riding Mode technology including Ride-by-Wire, triple-stage Bosch ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC). With limited changes to the standard motorcycle allowed, relative affordability and closeness of the racing, the championship has showed enduring popularity amongst both riders and spectators. This year saw a record entry of 52 registered riders and with many entrants returning for 2018 a full grid is expected.
