Last Hurrah of Steve and the 1978 Mike Hailwood Ducati

Posted on

As a special tribute for Mike Hailwood’s 60th anniversary of his first race at Castle Combe in the UK, the Sports Motorcycles team bikes will be run at the event this coming 8th and 9th of July

This may well be that last time the bikes will ever be seen or run as they are now in a private collection in New York.

It is widely recognised that the historic victory at the IOM TT in 78 saved the Ducati factory from extinction when they produced 7500 Hailwood Replicas and later 2000 Hailwod Evolutions.

Steve Wynne would like to see as many of these bikes (and other Ducatis) turn up for a great party at Castle Combe. The Hailwood family will be there including the new Mike Hailwood (grandson) A special prize will be given to the best Hailwood Replica judged by Steve & Pauline Hailwood.
