Seven LAVERDA riders - their numbers in brackets - braved the very variable weather conditions: Rudi Fixl with his 350 (50), Gisbert Gottlieb with the glorious 500 Formula (25), Erich Weidenholzer with a 750 SFC-Replica (3), Horst Gassner with his 750S-Racer (23), Willi Werndl with an awesome 1000 (21) and a Zane 750 (2), Bernhard Zojer with his fantastic 1200 (63) and Horst Scheuer (57) on a new 1200 Classic Racer.
Francesco Greggio was supposed to ride the Spaceframe triple of Giuseppe Andrighetto. Unfortunately he broke seven ribs in an earlier race. Nonetheless we had visitors from Breganze. Giuseppe didn't want to miss out on visiting us at the Red-Bull-Circuit!!!
The wet track led to numerous crashes but there were also excellent results: After countless minor technical problems Horst Scheuer managed to win the internal LAVERDA ranking on his new 1200 (fastest lap: 1:49.406). Bernhard Zoier came 2nd in regularity and was able to take a trophy home. Erich Weidenholzer dame 6th in regularity.
It was great to get such a big crowd and such a lot of support of LAVERDA riders and fans. A heartfelt thank you to all!
