Imola 200 Revival

Perhaps you've heard the stories about the legenday Imola 200.  It was a non-championship race for a few years that drew the elite of motorcycle road racing and saw a wide variety of of machinery from Grand Prix two strokes to big bore Superbikes of the day.

The Paul Smart replica Ducati, takes it's cues from the bike in this race.  It was the first taste the Europeans would have of the man we call King Kenny, and the Spanish called "The Alien"

This past fall, many of the racers and their bikes were brought back to the track to have some fun, and let everyone remember what it was like "back in the day".

Enjoy the video.
