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

4th Annual Ducati TT / F1 Symposium - September 1st - 4th, 2012 - loudbike

4th Annual Ducati TT / F1 Symposium - September 1st - 4th, 2012 - loudbike | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
This year, we decided to take the event to the racetrack (where it belongs) and thanks to Mike Weber's efforts, we're dove-tailed into 4 days of racing and track time at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.


If you saw the TT & F1 display at the Ducstock event last year, you got a taste of the amazing machines that came out of NCR and Ducati in the 80s. If you didn't, next weekend's your chance to get up close and personal with the first true factory racers that came out of Ducati and watch them in action in the new P89 class specifically designed for the 650 and 750 twins that filled out the grids back in the day.

First hosted by Lou Saif in his Queens, NY shop, the TT & F1 Symposium is a loosely organised and laid-back affair that has begun the attract some of the most impressive examples of the breed and attendees from all over the world. This year, we decided to take the event to the racetrack (where it belongs) and thanks to Mike Weber's efforts, we're dove-tailed into 4 days of racing and track time at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The guest of Honor will be none other than Englishman Pat Slinn, championship winning race engineer for Mike Hailwood and Tony Rutter.
