Ducati 1972 Imola racer

Paul Smart brought along his Imola 200 winning Ducati is in almost exactly the state it finished the race in apart from a little wear and tear. He didn't run it on the Friday and when I asked him if he would take it out on Saturday he pleaded old age for himself and the bike. When the bikes came out on Saturday he was however amongst them.

I caught this snippet of him passing: 52K MP3
