About GuzziRacer

I raced my first Moto Guzzi Le Mans Mk4 in around 1987 when BEARS first started in Australia. It was very difficult to race but was competitive. In 1994 I purchased a new Daytona 1000 to race in the National BEARS. I competed on it for a couple of years before retiring because of family commitments. At the end of 2009, I decided to come out of my 14-year retirement and race in the 2010 National BEARS challenge. I was reluctant to punish my Daytona anymore and decided to look for something new to ride. Of course, I knew about the MGS01 from magazines and internet sites but I had never seen one in the flesh.Only a handful of bikes ever came to Australia. Through various Moto Guzzi dealers in Australia, I tried to get the factory to make me a bike. Sadly the answer was no. One dealer that I spoke with told me that he knew someone who had an MGS01. I asked him if he could find out if the guy wanted to sell it. The answer was YES, so I went and paid him the money before he could change his mind. I ran the bike in late last year at a couple of track days and prepared for a full racing season. I campaigned the MGS01 for a couple of years but as you can see from this blog it had its ups and downs.

In 2015 I rebuilt my original Daytona and went Post Classic Racing. What a great decision that turned out to be. Good racing and a fantastic bike. We know each other so well. I am quicker on it now than I was in the 90’s. Go figure.

I hope you enjoy these pages.
