    Imola 200 lives on

    Reliving the charm of the iconic Imola 200 races, Ducati is organising a third revival event edition at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Circuit of Imola this September. The event marks the 40th anniversary of Paul Smart’s legendary 1972 victory on his famous Ducati 750 ImolaDesmo. The event is still considered the start of Ducati’s superbiking success and a milestone in the company’s racing history.

    Smart is slated to ride his 750 ImolaDesmo in the Ducati Hall Of Fame Parade during the three-day event, where he will be joined by other famous personalities. The event is to witness the participation of all the Imola 200 Ducati motorcycles and will host a four-hour endurance race for heritage motorcycles like the 900NCR, 600TT2 and the 750TT1. The celebrations of Smart’s 40th anniversary began during the World Ducati Week 2012 (WDW), post which it moved to the Belgian circuit of Spa Francorchamps.
