Eddie Lawson won 30 premier class Grand Prix for Honda and Yamaha, and one for Cagiva (which he’s rumored to have received a Ferrari for the achievement). John Kocinski gave Cagiva its other two race wins. Matchless won a single race in 1961 and two in 1962. What’s important, however, is not that Moto Guzzi won three GPs in 1951, 1955 and 1957, but that it never won a GP on the V-8-powered motorcycle pictured above that reached 178 mph at the 1957 Belgian GP.
