Wednesday, January 12, 2011
American Nicky Hayden was the fastest Ducati rider on the first test day at Valencia and made several passes with both the big bang and screamer engines.
Acer joins the Ducati Corse family bringing computer systems and electronics to the team.
Acer today announced the signing of the agreement with Ducati Corse. Under this agreement Acer will become Official Partner of the glorious motorcycle company.
 
Just like in all teams that want to excel in sport competition, also in Ducati to achieve the objectives requires teamwork, commitment, continuity, flexibility and endurance while giving each individual its due value. And Acer, whose commitment to the world of sport, particularly in the motor world, is long standing and not fortuitous, bases its strength and continued growth on these same values.
 
Historical Italian brand, Ducati debuted in MotoGP in 2003, becoming quickly one of the most successful players. The similarities between Acer and Ducati Racing are deep. The passion for performance and excellence, total commitment and determination to achieve new goals, the willingness to open up new paths and to invest in innovation motivate both companies.
 
"Both Acer and Ducati have proved that teamwork and the spirit of competition can turn ambitious goals into concrete results," said Gianpiero Morbello, Corporate Vice President Marketing and Brand, Acer Group. "We decided to sign this important new partnership with the belief that the combination of the two brands will have a positive value for Acer, as well as to strengthen their commitment to the world of motorsport."
 
“The agreement with Acer for us represents an achievement of an important goal,” commented Filippo Preziosi, Ducati Corse General Director. "Acer shall be a partner that not only is able to provide reliable and high performance systems, but also a great experience in the racing world. With this agreement we have achieved both goals, in the delicate project engineering work also in the demanding and dynamic activity of the track. "
 
The agreement of the initial term of two years covers the supply of hardware including Acer branded clients and Gateway servers. Thanks to Acer and Gateway’s solutions, Ducati will benefit from the most modern and efficient systems for the 3D CAD for their engine’s design; from systems based on high performance computing for fluid dynamics simulation, as well as high-performance mobile devices that deliver the power necessary for processing telemetry data analysis.
 
The partnership between two dynamic and innovative brands such as Acer and Ducati can only be beneficial and a source of excellence for both companies.
