Carl commented on his new ambassadorial role with Ducati and the 848 Challenge …

"I am very pleased to be asked to be involved with the 848 Challenge and pass on my experience to the riders and also hopefully help some of the young and up and coming guys. The 848 Evo is a fantastic bike and the Challenge should produce a great spectacle at every one of the eight rounds."
