MCE British Superbike Championship Series Director Stuart Higgs said: "The Ducati 848 Challenge has grown into a popular, established one-make series and this will continue into the 2013 season. Working closely with Ducati UK we have been able to offer a new, competitive package for riders, giving them the opportunity to race with an iconic manufacturer at some of the best UK circuits, plus the opportunity to feature on the Assen event programme."
