The Italian joint-stock company that primarily operates in the web hosting and domain registration industries, Aruba.it has extended its Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) contract with Ducati and has also expanded its association with the Italian motorcycle company’s MotoGP team.
Aruba S.p.A. which was founded in 1994, is the market leader in data centres, web hosting, email, certified email (PEC), and domain registration services in Italy.
With a European network capable of hosting over 200,000 servers, the company has extensive experience in data centre management. Hosting services, public and private cloud services, housing and colocation services, dedicated servers, digital signature services, fibre optic internet, digital preservation, e-billing, certified email, SSL certificates, and smart cards are all provided by the company.
In this partnership, the two factory Ducati Panigale V4 R bikes will continue to race in the Superbike World Championship for another two years, proceeding with a partnership that originated in 2015.
Furthermore, the collaboration between Aruba.it and Ducati will be strengthened beginning in 2022.
Aruba.it will be the title sponsor of the Desmosedici GP that will see Ducati test rider Michele Pirro, compete as a wild card in three MotoGP World Championship rounds: the Gran Premio d’Italia at Mugello (27-29 May), the Gran Premi de Catalunya at Montmeló (3-5 June), and the Gran Premi di San Marino e Della Riviera di Rimini at Misano (2-4 September).
Stefano Cecconi, CEO Aruba S.p.A. and Team Principal Aruba.it Racing – Ducati, said, “The relationship with Ducati is a strong bond in the Superbike World Championship and a fruitful collaboration between the two companies. We are proud to represent Ducati on circuits around the world and to have renewed the agreement that will allow us to continue this adventure at least until the end of the 2024 season.
“From this season, participating as a wild card in three events of the MotoGP World Championship is for us a source of further satisfaction and it underlines the strong connection with the Borgo Panigale company. Not only it will be a new showcase for Aruba.it, but it will give us the chance to undertake a new fascinating challenge with the same commitment and professionalism that has distinguished us so far in World Superbike”.
Claudio Domenicali, Chief Executive Officer, Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A., commented, “We are truly satisfied with the long-term partnership that has bound us to Aruba.it for eight years. It is a company that, like Ducati, represents Italian excellence driven by innovation. The agreement extension until 2024 confirms the quality of a partnership which has gone from strength to strength year after year from a business and sporting point of view.
“In addition to the extensive commitment to World Superbike, this season includes the new challenge in the Supersport World Championship and the satisfaction of seeing a Ducati racing in MotoGP with Aruba.it Racing team colours that, for all the fans, are the natural colours of the official Panigale V4 R competing in the Superbike World Championship”.
