Benzina at the Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival

This weekend, 5-7 August, I'll be at the wonderful Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival - latest copy of Benzina and my books. If you're after a particular back issue of Benzina email before 9am Friday and I'll bring a copy. Otherwise just come and say Hi. Will be between the Paddocks with Pat Slinn signing books

The racing's always great and there's such a varied entry list you can download here and club displays. The static bike show includes a Beale Benelli 350/4 like the one Dave Roper races (above) and an Aermacchi HD250RR - the full list is here and most of them will be paraded on what must be the best UK track for spectators. There's also a Steve Parish BBQ on Saturday evening - make of that what you will.

Bruno Spaggiari's1973 Imola bike for sale

The real thing - John at Made in Italy Motorcycles collected it from Bruno's hallway. More by clicking here on John's website. But there's no price. Just as well if it's less than our house in worth; lot of info on this (including the radially drilled discs) in my Ducati and the TT book

Ducati - a Photographic Tribute, volume two by Phil Aynsley

with Benzina 14 posted out have finally had a chance to have a good look at Phil Aynsley's second volume "Ducati - a Photographic Tribute" (volume one's sold out). Stunning doesn't cover it: Phil Aynsley has had access to the factory and collections the rest of us can only dream about. Classics, racers, modern - they're all here plus non-motorcycling products from the Ducati family's era. Even some period ads. A monster of a book at almost 3KG and a bargain at under 80 Euros delivered with the EU. More at
