Philippine Ducati Weekend 2014

11:45:00 PM

22-23rd November marked the 2nd Philippine Ducati Weekend held at the Clark International Speedway in Pampanga. It was a remarkable event for all Ducati afficionados of the country as 2011 winner of Superbike World Championship, Carlos Checa joined the race, fun and other festivities for 2 days.

We traveled from Manila a day before and had an enjoyable snack time at Didi's -




Delicious food, very affordable and you can't go wrong with their Pizza Burger then Pizza + mayo!

We headed to the Speedway straight away and witnessed how busy the crowd is for setting up the place for a very RED WEEKEND:

 Ducati Store

 Bull Ride

 One of the sponsors


Some riders were early, excited perhaps :)


PDW2014 guests enjoyed 30-50% off on rooms and villas at Fontana!



 The resort had not only been maintained, but improved! I couldn't recall exactly but most probably the sheets and toiletries...



 I am always happy when I don't have to bring a towel on my trips ;)

Woohoo, we built the Media Booth before Dinner ;)


We went out of Clark for Dinner and have seriously enjoyed these being sold along the hi-way of Mabalacat and look what greeted us on our way back...


PHILIPPINE DUCATI WEEKEND - DAY 01


Everyone was up early that day and we wore this cute Diadora graphic Ts.

 The weather celebrated with all of us!

 Here are a few glimpse of Ducati merchandise being sold inside the event -



Exclusively available for the guests were Henna Tattoos, Caricature and a Spa (?)
 Spa on a live race? Yes, you heard me right and being a wellness freak myself, I've enjoyed a relaxing foot spa + massage firstly on Day 01...


 Everything became intense mid-afternoon. The well warmed sounds of the engines are breathtaking and we were so curious to watch the racing action!

The groundbreaking welcome ceremony for Mr. Carlos Checa...

Pleased to meet you Carlos! I am completely paralyzed and speechless;
I couldn't grab a thing to have his autograph then handed my keypad... #starstruck


 

The Macalinao brothers, Aaron and Lawrence raced together...

The crowd and fans gave their cheers and that was nice (bull) ride!

... and that smile made me think it's all worth it to have a photo with you #17 Jussi Hoikka

Then we all deserve a fun night out - SCRAMBLER PARTY





... and a very nice dinner. Thank you Ducati Philippines!



 
Shawnty!!! :)






We will all certainly look forward to the 3rd Philippine Ducati Weekend! <333
