The 200 Miglia of Imola revival at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari of Imola will be a one of the hottest events to attend if you’re going to be in Italy from the 1st to the 3rd of October.
Francesco ‘Checco’ Costa, father of Dr. Claudio Costa medical guru of the Clinica Mobile, came up with the idea to create the 200 Miles back in the early ’70’s to make Imola the “Daytona of Europe” and now more than 30 years later, the first edition of the event will try to recreate the passion of those exciting days.
Over 100 GP riders will be attending, including Paul Smart who won the very first edition the 200 Miglia di Imola against team mate Bruno Spaggiari on the Ducati 750 and probably riding a Ducati from Borgo Panigale’s museum.
King Kenny Roberts has also confirmed that he’ll be in Imola and will be riding one of his old bikes in the GP Parades as will Giacomo Agostini, Johnny Ceccotto, Gianfrano Bonera, Kork Ballington, Jim Redman, Mario Lega, Graziani Rossi, Marco Lucchinelli, Steve Baker, Christian Sarron, Patrick Pons, Michel Rougerie and many more champions who will be riding their original or replica bikes.
