After two successful years, DG SPORT, the organiser of the 200 Miglia di Imola Revival, wanted to offer the many fans of classic bikes a third edition that would be even more interesting than the previous ones. After many difficult negotiations and thanks to the unconditional support of the new director of the Pietro Benevuti track, a 4 Hour race will be added to the 2012 program. Just like during the Bikers’Classics in Francorchamps, it will be a race for motorcycles built before 1980, with a a Le Mans style start on the Italian track, followed by a magnificent ballet of spectacular pit stops and rider changes.
But, as you probably already expected, this will not be the only attraction during this event. It will be exactly 40 years since the victory of Paul Smart at the first edition of the 200 Miglia, with his revolutionary Ducati 750. We could not let this anniversary go by just like that, and especially the Italian factory wanted to celebrate it. The most beautiful bikes that ever left the factory in Bologna will be exhibited in the paddocks and a parade will be dedicated to the owners of a modern bike of the brand. With “track riding” sessions for all amateurs, an extra opportunity to discover this track in between the different parades of the great stars from the past.
For us it was important to include a 4 hour race, says Christian Jupsin, organiser of the event, we already wanted to organise one last year. We are happy that the adventure continues and we invite everyone to visit our website www.200miglia.com and discover the many details of this third edition.
