We’ve managed to book our places for the Britten motorcycle event on Thursday evening 26th May.
Latest event update from our buddies in the Ducati Club Netherland:
Ducati TT/F1 Symposium.
Ducati’s most iconic race bike returns to Assen and how! This first belt driven Ducati in the (since then) typical trellis frame ruled the race world in the early ‘80s when in 1981 the Ducati TT2 saw the light. This Ducati TT, and its street version Ducati F1, is the ‘great-grandfather’ of all Ducati’s built in the following 30 years. It has many enthusiasts’ still lovingly caring, racing and tuning it. In the USA, already 8 successful “Ducati TT & F1 symposium” meetings were organized. This year the 9th symposium will be part of the 37th Club Race and together with the Ducati Club Netherlands we organize the first ever TT & F1 race!
Around 50 bikes will celebrate on the track the successes of the TT back in the day in the TT1, TT2, and World Endurance and Bott races. Successes like Tony Rutter’s 4 World Championships in TT2 (1981,82,83 and 84), podium finishes in 1984’s Endurance Championship, 3 consecutive wins at the Montjuic 24 hours (1984, 85 and 86) and many race successes like Marco Luchinelli’s 1986 Daytona Bott win and national Bott, Superbike and TT2 Championships.
The Symposium is an International gathering for all that share their passion for the Ducati TT & F1. In the paddock we have a “TT & F1 Piazza” where we are exhibiting 35 years’ evolution of a bike that is alive & kicking on circuits. With original restored race and street bikes, specials and machines that are successful today in Open Endurance and Superbike classes we will exhibit around 80 machines but also reunite riders and mechanics that wrote history with these machines.
On the track and in the exhibition you will see many special machines including;
Michael Rutter’s 2015 Ducati TT, a replica of his father’s bike on which Michael broke the 2 valve lap record during last year’s Isle of Man Classic TT.
The 1986 Italian Superbike winning Moretti Ducati (ex Leandrini)
All TT1 Homologation models (Montjuic, Laguna Seca and Santa Monica)
The ex-Walter Villa 1984 TT1
An original 1982 TT2
The bike where it all started with, the 1979 Pantah 500
And a beautiful collection of original restored machines, replicas and specials based on the TT.
