Imatra classics race

Imatra, a small town in eastern Finland, used to host one of the world championship races from the early 60´s up to the early 80´s. Last year the local motoring club organized a major rendez vous of bikes and riders from the glory days of the old road track.
It was exactly here Agostini secured his 15th world championship. This time he was riding both his victorious MV and Yamaha. Other stars from the era included Phil Read, Jim Redman, Tepi Länsivuori etc. Together with beautiful vintage bikes they attracted quite a lot of people to the event.
