Agostini back in the saddle

Misano CIV Classic Weekend: an absolutely unmissable event. On Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16, the facility named after Marco Simoncelli will host one of the most anticipated events of the year dedicated to vintage motorcycles. The big star of the weekend will be Giacomo Agostini who, invited by the Italian Motorcycle Federation, will celebrate his 80th birthday with talk shows and parades on the track. In addition, the IMF will present cultural and historical initiatives and projects.

The first event will immediately be of the utmost interest: at 1:15 p.m. Saturday is the first Track Parade with Giacomo Agostini and collectors. Next, here is the presentation of the new book (the title of which will be revealed on the spot) celebrating 35 years of the Historical Register. A work in which 65 masterpieces of Italian motorcycle engineering are illustrated to tell the story of the years from 1911 to the present, tracing the phenomena of customs and events that have characterized the history of our country. The planned unveiling of the new Historical Register website will take place immediately afterwards-a service in favor of Members and those who want to register their motorcycles with the FMI. Afterwards, the Merchandising of the Historical Registry will be unveiled. At 6 p.m. here is the highlight of the day, with the Talk Show together with Giacomo Agostini, a 15-time World Champion ready to recount his 80 years of success and glory.

Sunday morning features a meeting reserved for Historic Register Examiners and, from 8:30 a.m., the Motoincontro “Ago 80” organized by Moto Club Misano. At 11:30 a.m., on the other hand, the presentation of a unique specimen in the world will be held: the Moto Beccaria, an exclusive vehicle that will attract the attention of all enthusiasts. The unforgettable two days will close with the second Giacomo Agostini track parade with collectors, a parade to which Motoincontro participants will also have access.

Relevant is the competitive side of the Misano CIV Classic Weekend. On Saturday morning and afternoon, space will be given to Group 4, Group 5 and Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance qualifying. The night race of the latter Trophy will kick off at 7 p.m.: 90 minutes to follow as will all the competitions scheduled for Sunday starting at 9:45 a.m.
