Lewis Hamilton talks of his secret love for MotoGP | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Formula One icon Lewis Hamilton has opened up about one of his secret loves, MotoGP and motorbikes.

In his latest column for BBC Sport, the 2008 champion explained that he has always had a passion for motorbikes from a very early age.

He explained that every Christmas as a child he would always ask for a motorcycle but his dad said they were "too dangerous" and bought me a go-kart instead.

Bikers Classics 2012 | Spa Francorchamps Circuit | | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

This year Ducati was the featured marque and the theme was F1's and the derivitives from the F1 - Montjuich, Laguna Seca, Santamonica and the TT2 and TT1. The text is in Dutch but the photos speak for the depth and quality of the event and the Ducati display. 

The Ducati museum in Bologna was also present with a large tent where a dozen bikes in the race history of the brand were exhibited. All V-twins, starting with a replica of the 750 racer (#16) which Paul Smart in 1972 the 200 miles from Imola won. Next up was the winner of the 24 Hours of Montjuich of 1975 (# 9) with its narrowed lower crankcase for extra ground clearance, and equipped with lights for night stages. The list of racers was closed by a team of 750SS Spaggiari and an NCR endurance racer. On the other side of the tent stood the TT1 and TT2 F1 which Marco Lucchinelli won the Battle Of The Twins race at Daytona in 1986. The four models were represented by 888, 916 and 999

Ducati Team gears up for Wrooom 2013 23rd edition | Ducati.net

Ducati Team gears up for Wrooom 2013 23rd edition | Ducati.net | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Ducati Team to join Scuderia Ferrari for the traditional F1 and MotoGP Press Ski Meeting Riders from Ducati factory-supported Team Pramac also guests at Wrooom  

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

We look forward to Wrooom (pronounced Vroom) because it traditionally includes the unveiling of the team's new look and colors as well as the media's chance to speak to the riders now all officially under contract to Ducati (most contracts end on Dec.31 and preclude the riders from commenting on anything relating to "next years job" if it's with a different manufacturer)

This 1988 Ducati 750 F1 is an exceptional, museum quality, original, unrestored example that would be a fine addition to any Ducati collection.
