Press Release
(2005 FIM Superbike World Championship)
Scuderia SC Caracchi-NCR

(Magny Cours 2005, October 9)

New fantastic all-Italian triumph for Lorenzo Lanzi in Superbike in the final
race of 2005 WSBK Championship on Magny Cours. Lorenzo rode once more the 999F05
and the team has been integrated, as in Imola, with Ducati Corse engineers, and
didn't let the occasion, recording in three rounds two wins and a pole position
and ending the championship standing in ninth position, bets of Italian riders.

"I'm on the seventh heaven." -  said after the victory Lorenzo Lanzi. "This win
makes me up for the Imola delusion. During race-1 I suffered a lot for the front
tyre which vibrates heavily and didn't allow me to ride; I had the tears under
my helmet because I could see the others close to me and I wasn't able to fight
them. During race-2 I had a good start, both in the first start as in the
restart after the red flag interruption. When I catched Vermeulen we started
studying eachother looking at the final laps. Then he suddenly slowed at 18th
lap and I was lonely leading the race. Of course looking that from sporting
point of view that's be a pity, but also I was confident to win to see a rival
like Vermeulen out makes everything easier. I wish to dedicate this victory to
everybody were close to me, to my sponsors which are above all good friends, to
the Scuderia SC Caracchi, to my crew engineer, to Ducati Corse that gave me a
splendid factory bike and a factory rider service. I don't know at the moment my
2006 program, but I hope to remain in this ambience that gave me so much."

Less satisfied is  Gianluca Nannelli that in Magny Cours ended in 9th position
after an hard race. After a bad collision just after the start that throwed him
in 14th position at the first split passage, Nannelli earned some position
ending ati fight with Chambon in the final corners, but the expert French rider
has been able to resist.

"I was right yesterday to fight for the front row!" - commented Gianluca
Nannelli after the race. "I got quite a good start, but just at the first corner
somebody hit me on the rear and I lot a lot of positions. The bike with full
thank was not handling and the tyres do deteriorate quickly. I earned some
position, but I'm not very satisfied for this result. This season in Supersport
on the 749R has been fantastic and allowed me to work side by side to special
people like  Franco Farnθ and the team's guys, but for next season I hope to be
once more in Superbike that is better for my riding style, and I wish myself to
still remain with Ducati."

Stefano Caracchi too is very happy for this new win that follows just an week
later the one of Imola. "It looks not to believe." - said Caracchi. "two
victories in a row for a small private team like we are is a strong incentive to
go on. I must say that if the Supersport victory was a  total fruit of our team
for Lanzi's victory we must be grateful to Ducati Corse that put at our
disposition the fantastic 999F05 and the engineer for those last events, further
the rider lended for the season. Lorenzo has been fantastic, after some
difficulties for the new class at the beginning of the season, fron Misano on
started to collect always better results until the victory on Lausitz and now is
ready for join a factory team."
