the Italian job …

Luca Cadalora, Infostrada Ducati Corse 996RS, 2000 British World Superbike round, Donington Park

Luca Cadalora is mostly known for his 3 world titles in Grand Prix racing (1 125cc title & 2 in 250cc), but near the end of his racing career the charismatic Italian from Modena had a quick foray into World Superbike racing, replacing the injured factory rider Troy Bayliss at the InfoStrada squad during the 2000 British round at Donington
unfortunately it was too short a period for the Italian to adapt to the 996RS & he didn’t score any points
it was to be his only outing in World Superbike racing
the Italian would however continue to test for Ducati
