While in Malaga, Jack got to get his hands on Cat Command, which allows an operator to run a machine remotely.

While in Europe for the kick-off of the 2021 MotoGP season, Jack stopped by the Caterpillar Malaga Demonstration and Learning Center (MDLC) in Spain. There, he was able to test a range of machines, as well as getting some saddle time in a simulator. “The MDLC was a great experience. The feedback I got from people who really know Caterpillar and Cat machines was great. As a motorbike rider, I was just trying to learn and absorb what they know. Many elements of racing on a MotoGP track and operating machines are similar. Safety is always important, but you are also chasing the details of how to best operate the machine, finding the best lines and trying to make everything effortless. It’s all about the best possible finish.”
Jack and the Ducati Team had high expectations coming into the 2021 season. There was a lot of pressure to perform, but they set a realistic goal of fighting for the championship. “To be a Cat ambassador is a dream come true and a massive honor. To be aligned with a company that has so much history and such great products, the possibilities are endless. I feel so fortunate to be in this position and to be able to work with the great people at Caterpillar.”
