Historic Laverda race bikes will take to the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb as part of Owners’ Club 50th Anniversary Celebrations on Saturday 7th September 2024

2024 is a special year for Laverda fans, not only is the Laverda marque celebrating its 75th Anniversary but the International Laverda Owners’ Club (ILOC) is also marking its 50th year.

To celebrate both anniversaries, some of the most important Laverda motorcycles in its 75 year history are being live demo’ed on the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb as part of the International Laverda Owners’ Club 50 year celebrations on Saturday 7th September 2024.

Piero Laverda (son of Moto Laverda founder Massimo Laverda) will be piloting the fabled Laverda V6 Endurance Racer up the hill climb and this will be your only chance to see (and hear!) it live demo’ed in the UK this year. An event surely not to be missed!

Werner Ricciolini, Founder of the Museo Moto Laverda situated in Breganze Italy where the Laverda factory was located, will also be bringing some other very special race bikes:
