Retromotor

Post by crankcase » Wed Sep 12, 2012 1:10 am

I went to this last weekend.
It's like a village fete, where a few old cars and motorcycles turn up for a bit of fun.
But the really special part is that you don't normally find Giacomo Agostini, Phil Read, Freddie Spencer, Luigi Taveri or Marco Lucchinelli at your village bazaar !
And they weren't the only ones . .

This guy, I didn't know before, Mario Lega was 250cc world champion in 1977, he really wound up his 851. One of the high points of the weekend.

I remember Mario Lega riding a factory endurance racer, tuned by NCR at the 6 hours of Assen, back in 1979.
There were two Ducati/NCR bevel racers that day, they had a sound like WW2 bombers.....!!

Here a Dutch link to that race: Victor Palomo and Mario Lega on #24 finished second on a works Ducati bevel...!!
