La Ducati 2004 @ La Honda

pix by: Steve Allen

What a turnout!   A resurrection of the old "Ducati Day" of years gone past,  we made quite a go of it getting plenty of industry support along with Ducati North America for the 1st Annual "LaDucati Day" in LaHonda, CA.  We managed to get more than $18000 in goods and services donated for our raffle and auction.  All proceeds benefited the LaHonda Fire Brigade.  The exact amount I will post once everything has been tallied up.

Plenty of info is available at regarding this event.  We had a Ducati Music Challenge, Michael Lock CEO of DNA presented the 2005 models, Vintage Swap Meet, Suspension Clinic, I was in charge of "Concourso La Ducati" and the awards were given to the following folks....

BEST SINGLE - Larry Orlick - 1971 R|T 450
- runner up

BEST ROUNDCASE - Ray Houser - 1972 750 GT
- runner up - Keith Hale - 1974 750SS

BEST SQUARECASE - Gary Newton - 1975 900 SS Racebike
- runner up - Greg Nealon - 1979 900SS

BEST 2-VALVE - Keith Hale - 1995 900SS
- runner up - Mike Williams - 1996 900SS

BEST 4-VALVE - Chris Calovini - 2000 996
- runner up - Brian Brown - 1993 Corsa 888 Racebike

FYI: Gary is the son of Dale who put this bike together for Paul Ritter to race.  He has completely restored the bike - it is amazing to see in the metal.  Hopefully we can get him to bring it to Laguna for everyone to see next year.....  Brian Brown owns the 888 - it is Foggy's first WSB ride and Doug Polen raced on it as well as a few other talented racers...
