Isle of Man Classic TT August 24, 25, 26 2019
of Man, – August 24-25-26 – For the 7th consecutive year, Team Obsolete has
been invited back to the Isle of Man Classic TT, this time to display and
parade two genuine exotic bikes from its world renowned collection: the 1976
Agostini MV Agusta 350/4 and the 1959 Surtees AJS Special.
TT winner, fifteen-time FIM world champion, Giacomo Agostini will be riding the
MV Agusta 1972/76 350 cc 4 cylinder Assen winner at the Jurby Festival and will
be participating in a Special Lap of Honour on the fabled 37 mile “Mountain
Circuit.” This is the same bike that he
rode to victory in his last 350 Grand Prix, Assen 1976.
addition to Giacomo Agostini, Classic Racing Legend, Dave Roper, the first
American to win a TT will be riding the 1959 Surtees AJS Special which was recently honored at the ASI MotoShow
in Varano, Italy. The “Surtees” had a
long and distinguished career in ARTER EQUIPPE. Riders Mike Duff and Peter Williams scored many high placings just
behind the Italian Multis. Williams was
second behind Agostini’s MV 350/3 at the 1966 Isle of Man “Junior” TT.
Rob Iannucci said, “We are thrilled to return these great riders and bikes to
the Isle of Man, the world’s greatest race circuit.”
