Team Obsolete and its owner Rob Ianucci will be returning to the Isle of Man for the Classic TT Races. This year the team, which has been involved with the Classic TT since the event’s inception in 2013, will display and parade two genuine exotic bikes from its world-renowned collection - the 1976 Agostini MV Agusta 350/4 and the 1959 Surtees AJS Special.

Ten-time TT winner and fifteen-time Grand Prix World Champion, Giacomo Agostini will be riding the 4-cylinder 350cc MV Agusta 1972/76 in the Classic Racer Magazine Classic TT Lap of Honour around the TT Mountain Course on Monday 26th August and will also be appearing at the VMCC’s Festival of Jurby.  The bike is the same bike that Giacomo rode to victory in his last 350 Grand Prix at Assen in 1976.

In addition to Giacomo Agostini, classic racing legend Dave Roper, the first American to win a TT will be riding the 1959 Surtees AJS Special which was recently honored at the ASI MotoShow in Varano, Italy.  The “Surtees” had a long and distinguished career in ARTER EQUIPPE with riders Mike Duff and Peter Williams scored many high placings just behind the Italian multi-cylinder bikes that dominated the era.

Team Owner, Rob Iannucci said, “We are thrilled to return these great riders and bikes to the Isle of Man, the World’s greatest race circuit.”
