D’Antin Pramac Ducati GP4
July 31, 2013 in Cars & Motorcycles
Hi folks, just to round off July with something different. Following on from the Honda posted earlier, this is a more up to date offering, another Tamiya 1/12 kit. Team d’Antin Pramac are a private Spanish team, and in 2005 had a deal to run the previous year’s works Ducati GP4. They had only one rider, Spaniard Roberto Rollo, an experienced 250cc rider. Unfortunately they didn’t achieve any podium finishes, but the bike looked pretty neat all the same. Their lack of relative success may have been due to running on Dunlop tyres, as opposed to Bridgestone (as used by all the other teams), and also the choice of Nissin brakes, instead of Brembo. Although the bike featured a very attractive colour scheme using white hibiscus flowers of the red and black colours
, I actually the look of the machine without the cowling
. Thanks for looking.
