Ducati 848 Challenge heads for Snetterton

Ducati's 848 Challenge returns to UK shores this weekend as the championship heads to Snetterton for round three as former BSB man Dennis Hobbs joins the fray.

The previous round saw the 848 Challenge take place at the famous Assen TT circuit, the first of two overseas rounds that the Championship visits. Robbie Brown left the Dutch circuit with a clutch of points that gave him a healthy lead over the second placed Darren Fry. Brown and Fry shared a race win each, but it was Fry that took most satisfaction from Assen after illness had left his inclusion in the races in doubt.

Fry’s performance was reminiscent of the form that took him to the 2010 title and Brown will be wary of the resurgent Fry at Snetterton. Sam Coventry showed that he is to be a force to be reckoned with two thirds in Assen after a mixed start at the opening round.


Mike Edwards will hope his luck has changed after a disastrous Assen saw him leave Holland pointless and languishing 15th in the Championship table. Sean Neary will hope to continue his momentum and Jack Keen will want to follow up his ‘man of the meeting’ performance at Assen.

Jamie Patterson, son of Alan Patterson, will be the guest rider on the Ducati UK VIP bike and will be advised and mentored by 848 Challenge ambassador, Neil Hodgson. The former World Champion will be in attendance at Snetterton throughout the weekend to provide guidance to all the 848 Challenge riders.

Another newcomer to the series will be Dennis Hobbs. The former British Supersport rider who finished third in the Championship in 2007 will make his debut in the 848 Challenge at Snetterton and will compete at all of the remaining UK rounds.
