The sights and sounds of a sea of Ducati TT1, TT2, and 750F1s.. A gathering of some of the most rabidly enthusiastic TT1 and F1 fanatics from all over the world..
The TT/F1 Symposium gets better each year and brings the bikes closer to their native habitat; the race track. The event’s come a long way from the first gathering at Lou Saif’s shop in Queens, NY. We had an excellent group the following year at Ralf Stechow’s shop in New Jersey the following year, followed by the mother of all TT/F1 extravaganzas at Viki Smith’s Ducstock event last year at Barber Motorsports Park. But at Barber, we were still (but for the half-dozen racers) a distance from the track itself and we came away with that event with a desire to get the gathering into the pits and onto the track. The TTs (and their hot-rodded F1 cousins) are after all; pure racers – many of which are fully prepped for battle.
So, for 2012, the 4th Annual Ducati TT/F1 Symposium moves north to New Hampshire Motor Speedway www.nhms.com; a tight, twisty track in the Northeast US.
Connecticut enthusiast Mike Weber put a substantial amount of time into bringing a new Ducati TT and F1 class into the Loudon Road Racing Series for 2012 and this lets our machines duke it out on a more level playing field. The new class structure and a ‘perfect storm’ of events let Mike create a really neat, multi-discipline program for the 2012 Symposium that offers racing, track time and of course, the already famous static display of these amazing bikes.
Registration for the TT/F1 Symposium is easy; just show up with your bike and gear. To register for the track activities, follow the links to the organizing bodies in the schedule below:
