Not just Giacomo Agostini, but also a whole Austro-German-Laverda team was present at the "Racing Days 2020 - Rupert Hollaus Race" at the RedBull circuit:
"Only one week after MotoGP we have taken over pit 18 from Valentino Rossi and turned into the LAVERDA pit: Horst Scheuer (Haider LAVERDA 1200), Willi Werndl (LAVERDA 1000 and 750 Zane) and Reinhold Weinert (LAVERDA 1000 SFC and 750 Zane) and their whole entourage had assembled in pit 18.
Saturday was practice and qualifying day, and the race was held on Sunday. Each class featured a silver-heat of 10 minutes + 1 lap and a gold-heat of 15 minute + 1 lap.
In the 1970 - 1990 class above 750cc Horst first scored a 5th, and then, in a finish in the wet which was well worth seeing, he came 3rd. Willi came 10th and 8th, Reinhold 11th and 10th. In Regularity Reinhold scored a fantastic 2nd!
Willi and Reinhold also entered on their Zane LAVERDAs in the 1991 - 2002 Youngtimer-class up to 850cc, however weren't able to get on the podium in this particularly strong field.
Markus Krenn had entered a LAVERDA Barcelona Replica by Hermann Ansorge. In the 1970 - 1990 class of 500 - 750cc, he scored a respectable 9th."
