Skidmarx has introduced a light weight race fairing and seat unit for the Ducati 1098. Designed to directly replace the original body parts, these items will be useful for track days as well as use in competition. Skidmarx has a long association with Ducati on track, having supplied racing screens to Airwaves Ducati when they won the British Superbike championships in 2005, 2006 and 2008.

Manufactured in the UK from light 450gm CSM material that is backed up with woven cloth, the fairing and single seat unit are both pre-drilled to fit onto existing mounting points and the kit is supplied with quick-release Dzus fasteners. Unlike the road fairing, the race version has no headlight aperture or indicator mounting points, and instead has an enclosed belly pan with a catch tray to comply with ACU rules. Skidmarx produce their race bodywork in plain white, ready to be painted in team colours; the Race Fairing sells for £295- and the single seat unit (with integrated undertray) costs £125- (including VAT). A matching front guard is available too, priced at £47-.

Completing the package is the Skidmarx race screen for the 1098. Manufactured from 2mm acrylic for enhanced optical clarity, it is thinner and lighter than the road version. Standard race screens retail for £39.95 and double bubble version is £49.95.
