The big Ducati party has begun: the gates of World Ducati Week are open


Finally, after a four-year absence, the World Ducati Week returns to welcome fans of the world of two wheels for a weekend of thrills, passion and fun. The gates of the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” opened at 8am this morning to let in the first Ducatisti already waiting with their bikes in front of the entrance.

Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO: “It is a great thrill to see all these enthusiasts arrive in Misano to celebrate with us the return of World Ducati Week, a truly unique event that combines the two souls of Ducati: the technological one, which pushes innovation and performance and the relational one, promoting the pleasure of being together and having fun. For this eleventh edition there are so many unique experiences available to Ducatisti, from the closed room of a new model for 2023 to the Ducati MotoE show that will race in the championship from next year. We also brought a piece of Borgo Panigale to the circuit, with the experience dedicated to the Centro Stile that illustrates how Ducati bikes take shape from the very first step. Personally, I’m very happy to take part in the parade to Riccione tonight, it’s always a moment that makes me feel even more part of the great Ducati family, and obviously I’m looking forward to seeing the Lenovo Race of Champions tomorrow.”

The 88 participants in the World President Meeting, the meeting of presidents of Ducati Official Clubs from all over the world, who began their journey to WDW on 17 July starting from Rome for an on-the-road motorcycle trip of 1,200 km, also arrived at WDW2022. After the long itinerary, the group was welcomed by the Republic of San Marino for a gala dinner in the beautiful Piazza Sant’Agata.

In the Adventure area, off-road enthusiasts were able to watch the spectacular performance of Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, Antoine Meo and Eduard Boulanger riding the DesertX. Petrucci and Boulanger, Stéphane Peterhansel’s co-driver in the Dakar in the Audi RS Q e-tron and expert off-road motorcyclist, also met the public to talk about their experience riding the new Ducati with 21″ front wheel, perfect for tackling even the most challenging off-road routes. In the same area it is possible to admire the Audi RS Q e-tron of the Dakar, next to the DesertX with a special Audi-inspired livery.

Also in the Adventure Area, the E-MTB race was held on Ducati TK-01RRs, which saw nine riders challenge each other in an electrifying competition on a dirt track specially prepared for the occasion. Victory in the final went to Federico Caricasulo, Supersport rider with Althea Racing, just a few seconds ahead of Oli Bayliss, son of the legendary Troy. On the third step of the podium was Régis Laconi, one of Ducati’s historic Superbike riders. 

Autograph sessions with Ducati riders of the past and meetings with Ducati legends are the protagonists of the International Village, the meeting point for Ducatisti from all over the world where activities and experiences organized by Ducati branches and DOCs find their home.

There are already many fans who are having fun with FantaWDW, the web-app game to create your own team of riders on which to make a prediction of victory for the Lenovo Race of Champions. By scanning the QR Codes hidden in the circuit, you earn credits that can be spent to enter your team. After the legendary challenge between the Ducati riders, the ranking of the players who participated in FantaWDW will be available on the Ducati website and on the screens on the circuit.

In conjunction with the opening of WDW2022, a new Ducati dealership was inaugurated within the Misano circuit, a special garage for the sale of motorcycles, clothing and accessories that aims to become the point of reference for assistance to all fans of the racing world attending the Misano World Circuit and beyond. Bull Bikes, already a dealer for the provinces of Rimini, Brescia, Modena and Reggio Emilia, is responsible for the development of the project. The new Ducati dealership will remain open for all the days of the event.

The complete program with t he calendar of all WDW events is available on the Ducati website.

In the dedicated section of the website it is still possible to buy tickets to t ake part in the eleventh edition of WDW, which also include the evening main events: The Scrambler Beach Party on Friday night with DJ Set by Benny Benassi and the Saturday night show with the riders on stage and followed by the music of Meduza.

New National Political Party: Unicorn Party

 On Wednesday, March 23, 2022, the eleven founding members of the Unicorn Party met to vote on the formation of a new national party in the United States. During the meeting, founding members voted to nominate Jasmine Sherman for presidential candidate and Jared Budlong for Alabama Governor.

The Unicorn Party is an independent political party that is directly focused on the equity and inclusion of the people. “Uni” is Latin for “one,” which is meant to echo the tone of solidarity and is demonstrated by the mythical creature’s single horn. Inclusion has been the position through the formation of this party. The nature of this project is inclusive and promotes dignity and welfare for all who reside within our country. It was founded based on the idea that we will stand as a united front as we work together harmoniously to create equality for everyone. The unicorn’s single horn is a symbolic reminder that we can work towards one common goal. America has long since gone without a human rights centered political party, and we are it.

“I am so tired of going along to get along. I am so tired of being held back by everyone else’s fears. As a marginalized member of this society, it’s not OK for us to continue waiting for non-marginalized people to be brave enough to take the steps we need to get us the change that we need,” said Jasmine Sherman. “This party was started to address the systemic issues that we see every day in this nation. It is time for us to be the change we are tired of waiting for.”

Party Grandpa Retirement Club is launching interesting Grandpa NFTs

The Party Grandpa Retirement Club is launching its NFTs soon. Its minting will go live on November 17 as from 9 pm eastern time. Finally, NFT fans can join the retirement club with an NFT for good rewards. By joining the launch, there is a chance to win 5NFT, 100 presales, and $5000.

The party grandpa has an exclusive collection of 10,000 creatively made grandpas. They are all different and uniquely made and stored in ERC-721 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain while being hosted on IFPS.

The NFTs are not your ordinary grandpas as they are uniquely made with more than 180 hand traits. When a fan buys a grandpa, they automatically gain membership to the retirement club. There is never a dull moment with the grandpas as they want fans to enjoy life with them. The interesting part is that $200,000 is to be won when one buys a grandpa.

There is no doubt that the future is NFT. Who would have thought that an NFT could get you an entryway into retirement? Everyone is used to the idea of buying a retirement scheme and or getting into all these kinds of schemes to secure the future. Thanks to tech and blockchain, you can buy into a retirement scheme in a fun way. The party grandpa retirement club gives its members a chance to own their favorite grandpa and use it as a gateway to many benefits such as a monthly interest and access to exclusive events.

There are ten rare and ten honorary grandpas that have been drawn creatively to portray different characters and personalities. Examples include the prisoner, Santa, farmer, astronaut, the party guy, the hippie, the french Dj, the sheriff, the hipster, the joker, etc.

There is already a $100K fund set aside for financing community creations, designs, and marketing development in addition to a community wallet.

The platform is generous to its users, with a lot of giveaways in place. Discord is one of the main avenues to fuel the prizes as there will be rewards as the membership number increases. When the membership hits 5k, five party grandpa NFTs are randomly given. When it reaches 10 000, 5 party grandpas and $2k are given. When members reach 20k, five party grandpa NFTs and $5k. When the number reaches 30k, ten grandpa NFTs and $5k will be given. When it reaches the 40k mark on Discord, 20 NFTs and $5k will be given. In addition to that, the platforms plan on a huge giveaway on social media where five party grandpa NFTs, $5k, and 100 presales will be given.

As mentioned earlier, a grandpa NFT owner will get the chance to join the retirement party. That means they will access a retirement club program that comes with many benefits. It will unlock access to various monthly meetups all over the world. The meetings may include business conferences, training, conventions, cryptocurrencies, and investments. The meetups include exclusive monthly social events worldwide, including special events such as Coachella, Burning Man, Tomorrowland, and Ultra Music Festival. In addition to that, one lucky grandpa holder stands a chance to win $1000 in ETH every month. All the lucky winners of the 20 special editions will get a $1000 monthly reward.

As for the mint event, when you mint your grandpa and hold on to him, you stand a chance to get a second NFT mint for free.

Currently, all the grandpas are sold out. All the lucky grandpa holders will be invited to the first Grandpa’s Party that has been set to happen in NYC. Twenty lucky winners will be randomly chosen for a fully paid trip, including flights and a five-star hotel. As of January 2022, there will be monthly parties where the members get to choose the location.

As much as the retirement club is fun for members, the less privileged will not be locked out. The platform plans to give $50k to charity to help the elderly in need. The members are the ones who will vote for their charity of choice.

There are many other advantages of participating in the mint from the word go. All early token holders are automatically added to the reward program. After the announcement, there will be daily raffles every day for a chance to win 1 NFT from the collection at the floor price in one month. In three months, a member will get their NFT delivered at their home, where they will receive a 39″ printed edition of their NFT. The company will release a community wallet in six months, where members will get a 60% royalty redistribution.

After spending $100k in marketing campaigns of the sale launch, the company plans to use the remaining 40% from secondary market royalties for marketing to increase the value of the NFTs.

All grandpa owners can earn a retirement income from staking their NFT for monthly rewards. Every second-market transaction attracts a 10% royalty. 60% of the second market royalties are distributed to all party grandpas every month.
