Spanish rider Carlos Checa has started the New Year - and his new career at Ducati - with a first-ever official visit to the Italian manufacturer's factory in Borgo Panigale.

After positive tests with his new team last November, Carlos came to Bologna to personally meet the Ducati Corse engineers and technicians who will be following his progress from the factory - and to see where the most famous Italian twin-cylinder motorbikes in the world are produced.

Before leaving for Sepang, where he will test with team-mate Loris Capirossi from January 23-25, Checa will be taking part in the Wroom MotoGP press meeting, where he will spend a few days on the snows of Madonna di Campiglio.
