Paul Smart Dinner

By Kevin Ash - 13/05/2011

Ducati legend Paul Smart is hosting a dinner for 10 guests at a Scottish hotel on May 17.

The Ducati race legend is credited with winning one of the greatest races of the 20th century when he and teammate Bruno Spaggiari came first and second at the Imola 200 in 1972, beating all the established stars and teams on Ducati‘s first ever race with its then new V-twin machines.

Smart will be speaking at the event about the race, his career and recounting stories about his brother-in-law Barry Sheene, but first he‘ll be leading a ride out on the roads of the West Highlands.
