Giacomo Agostini

Motorcycle legend Giacomo Agostini will be the star attraction at the GO Classic Bike Festival Ireland at Bishopscourt in Co Down this summer.
The Italian great won a record 15 Grand Prix world titles and claimed 10 victories at the Isle of Man TT and seven wins at the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod during an illustrious career.

‘Ago’ will ride an MV Agusta 500 GP bike in the Ulster Grand Prix winners’ parade at the two-day festival from August 3-4, where he will be flanked by festival organiser and former Ulster road racing star Phillip McCallen on a Honda RC45, plus other past Dundrod winners.

“We’ve been working on this since January but it has all been confirmed now and Giacomo Agostini will be making his first appearance in Northern Ireland for many years at the Classic Bike Festival in August,” said McCallen.
“It’s brilliant to have Ago coming over and it will be a rare chance for fans to see him here.

“He’ll be taking part in the parade laps on the track and he’ll be mixing with the fans in the paddock on both days, so we’re expecting huge interest.
“It’s very exciting and we’re all looking forward to having him over.
“I have to say a huge thanks to our main sponsors GO and all our other event partners for their continued support because it wouldn’t happen without them.”
