Italian motorcycles to star at retro show

Ferrari 900 DOHC – a one off engineering masterpiece built by Kay Engineering as a tribute to Enzo Ferrari with written permission from Ferrari.

ITALIAN bikes will be a star attraction at next year’s Race Retro, when machines and riders descend on Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, from February 25-27.
This unique Ferrari 900 bike will be on display at the event where it will be joined by a host of famous riders and machines.
Benelli, Ducati, Gilera, MV Agusta and Moto Guzzi have constantly wowed fans with their sound, their looks and their appearance, and along the way have attracted the best riders, further cementing their place in the pantheons of motorcycle competition history.
Since the 1930s they have enjoyed a strong following, and much of that loyalty is based on consistently-strong motor sport prowess.
Establishing numerous records and winning key events, Italian motorcycles have consistently battled with bikes from other countries for two-wheeled supremacy. In 1957, for example, a Gilera 500 in the hands of Bob McIntyre, became the first bike to post a 100mph Isle of Man TT lap.
