The 200 Miglia Imola Revival, now in its third year, will take place on April 19-21, a date which is in line with the original 200 mile race. Organiser, DG Sport, promises a great weekend as it celebrates 60 years of the Imola circuit.

The Parade 200 Miglia is a revival of the race organised by Checco Costa from 1972 until 1985, and riders already confirmed include Cadalora, Lavado, Ballington and Pirovano. The Parade Coppa d’oro Shell, also saluting a race created by Checco Costa in 1954, which ran for 20 years, will be only for Italian riders on 250, 350 and 500cc machines. The first race in the new Endurance Classic Series, the four hours of Imola Classic, will launch what promises to be a great season of classic endurance racing.

This is not a parade and will be a real endurance race for motorcycles built before 1982, with teams consisting of two or three riders. For would be entrants in the four hour races, all information will be available soon on the website www.europeanclassicseries.eu

The other rounds in the series are Spa-Francorchamps on July 5-7 as part of the successful Bikers’ Classics event and four Hours of Aragon on October 25-27 as part of Motorland Classic Festival. Visit www.miglia.com for more information on Imola.

Meanwhile the busy team is advancing plans for another successful Bikers’ Classics event at the atmospheric Spa Francorchamps circuit on July 5-7 with parades for GP 500, a Superbike revival and the return of the popular three wheelers in a sidecar GP revival. It is also planned to have another parade around the old GP track. More details from www.bikersclassics.be
