When you think that the machinery 30 or 40 years ago wasn't anywhere near as sophisticated as modern tackle, it makes his (Ago's) achievements all the more impressive. :smoking:

Five minutes after posting my phone rang, but now that I'm back on track I can say that I believe the track in question is Scarborough (an English short track)...I did not know my brother John follows MVAgusta.net so intently!
Have you or has anyone heard of a movie called "Continental Circus"? It is about GP racing of that era staring Agostini as himself! I have been trying to track down a copy in the US with no luck.

hey mlawless,

I'm not sure if it was 'Continental Circus',- but there was a very '70's documentary made about bike racing on the Isle of Man. It featured Pat Hennen,- death at every corner kinda stuff...... soundtrack with accelerated heartbeats on the starting grid.. BUT very cool!

Kinda like Roman Polanski's docu about the Monaco F1 GP...1971/'72ish, where Wee Jackie Stewart talks about not shagging his wife for a week.......! "..because there's death at every corner..."...!!!

The movie with Pat Hennen sounds very interesting: the same race event that
almost ended his life and did end his career... I could not locate it on IMDb-do you know the name of it or were I could locate a copy?
