Paul Smart [1972 Imola race winner] and wife Maggie [Barry Sheen's sister] were on hand throughout the weekend.  These 2 folks are just about the nicest people I have met - they have known Frank for a long time and listening to the 3 of them carry on was a lot of fun.  Maggie is actually the person whom we all should thank as it was she who got the call from Ducati in 1972 for Paul to race and as he was off racing somewhere, signed him up!  As you all know, Paul reluctantly flew over to Italy to race an un proven and brand new Ducati bevel drive twin and with not more than a few practice laps started the race.  He came in first, Bruno Spaggiari came in second.  This 1-2 punch put DUCATI on the map in the moto world and gave Ducati the bump start it needed to get to where it is today.  THANK YOU MAGGIE!  And well, Thank you Paul!

 >>  Bevel Heaven shop owner and Ducati Museo organizer Steve Allen gets in on a conversation with Rossi and the "Ducati Hotties" from the new series SUPERBIKES.  The show segment with MotoGP footage and other Moto related happenings is due to air on Speedvision mid August.  Who knows if anything recorded gets aired, but it was fun anyways.  As you can tell, Steve was suffering the whole time......   It's a tough job but someone has to do it!
