MotoAmerica: Eraldo Ferracci Returning To Pro Road Racing

Apr 17, 2018 157

Living legend Eraldo Ferracci is returning to professional road racing in America by joining the Quarterley Racing/On Track Development MotoAmerica Junior Cup team as a sponsor and maybe more. “As you know, I rode for Eraldo back in the day. I was his first rider,” said Quarterley Racing/On Track Development co-owner Dale Quarterley, who raced and won on a Fast by Ferracci Ducati 851 in the 1988 AMA Pro Twins/Battle of the Twins Championship. “I have been on him the last couple of years when we’ve seen him at the track to come and be part of this.

“When we see Eraldo each fall he says, ‘You call me this winter. I do something.’ Well, when we called him the other day he said he was in. He sounded all excited. He said he has a couple of buddies who want to come out and play. He said it would help his parts business.” In addition to winning as a road racer in his native Italy and as a drag racer in America, Ferracci built and tuned winning Ducati road race bikes for Quarterley and Doug Polen (who won two Superbike World Championships and one AMA Superbike Championship with the Fast by Ferracci Ducati team), among many others.
