Default 25th Anniversary of Hailwood's Epic TT Win

In what is possibly unfortunate timing, Ducati today posted This Notice on their web site. Somehow, I suspect that the IOM TT is not looked on as favourably today as anticipated.



June 2, 1978 was the date of the late Mike ("the Bike") Hailwood's famous win that cemented his image as one of the true greats, and largely was responsible for cementing Ducati's high-performance image in the minds of many fans (of which I was one).

2003 seems to be a sad year for motorbike racing.



Kato, Jefferies...



Ride in peace brothers.

What a loss of extremely incredible rider. The times and pace he set were superhuman. The way he bent that Gixxer around the course were likewise superhuman. Alas telephone poles will make us all just mortal. Ride safe out there all, and remember even the greatest street rider in the world fell victim to it.

Man this news caught me by surprise. For us Kiwis this brings back the memories of losing Robert Holden there in practice in 1996 when he was topping the lap charts on the Ducati. David will be missed.
