By Sean Alexander, Dec. 23, 2004

Ducati is proud to be involved with the most important vintage motorcycle event in North America.

Cupertino, CA - December 23rd, 2004 ~Ducati announced that they will be the "Featured Marque" at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2005, an annual event held on July 15-17 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

Ducati's long history of building exciting motorcycles makes this a perfect match and another occasion to bring Ducatisti together in the celebration of motorcycling. The event will benefit the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum and feature a complete exhibit of classic motorcycles and memorabilia.

Paul Smart, winner of the 200 miles of Imola race aboard a Ducati 750SS in 1972, will be honored as the "Grand Marshall" of this year's AMA Vintage Days. Ducati is also honoring Mr. Smart's achievements with the production of the Paul Smart 1000 motorcycle, part of the new SportClassics family of Ducatis. Additionally, special guest and World Stunt Riding Champion Christian Pfeiffer will perform for the audience on his Ducati Monster.

The legendary Mid-Ohio circuit will again host American Historic Motorcycle Racing Association (AHRMA) road racing throughout the weekend; two days of AHRMA motocross, plus observed trials and dirt-track racing, also will be on the schedule.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2005 boasts three vintage bike shows; the traditional all-brands AMA Swapmeet, guest speakers, Ducati demo rides, an array of vendors featuring new products from top manufacturers and dealers in addition to the annual Motorcycle Hall of Fame Auction of motorcycles and memorabilia.
