In Ivančna Gorica, the company Akrapovič enthusiastically accepted the visit of Ducati star from the world of MotoGP Andrea Doviziosa and DTM champion (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) in the 2014 season Marc Wittmann from the BMW Motorsport team.

Their visit was a surprise at Akrapovic's New Year's assembly of employees, at which the guests joined the company's management on stage. They came to visit to see for themselves how much work is put into the exhaust systems they use on their race cars, and to thank all the employees for their outstanding support. They stayed at the event for quite some time. They handed out autographs to employees and took pictures next to their racing motorcycle or car.

In front of the assembly of employees, Dovizioso and Wittmann met with the owner of the company Igor Akrapovič and the executive director Uroš Roso, who showed the visitors in detail the modernly equipped high-tech premises of the company. The duo enjoyed an exclusive presentation of the complex manufacturing process needed to develop, manufacture and test exhaust systems for their race cars. They were introduced to the whole process - from the first draft to the final product.

Dovizioso visited Akrapovic's factory for the first time this time, and Wittmann was at the company's headquarters for the second time. After the visit, they also spent some time with the Slovenian media, to whom they revealed their thoughts about the factory and what they saw. They then went to a meeting with the staff responsible for the unique and state-of-the-art exhaust systems with which they race at the highest level in their disciplines.
