Thornton sent me this vid of the 2015 Mottoretta Tourist Trophy – aka the Motitty. As regular readers will remember it’s a 4 day, 1,000 mile event on New Zealand’s North Island… and you can only enter on traditional, geared scooters. Full details can be found on the website here.
Sorry, it’s not a viable on mobile devices, or in Germany, due to copyright issues.
A long overdue post for this epic event… (and I mean properly epic as my nine year old son uses it – applied to just about everything). Four days covering 1000 miles across New Zealand, on scooters. And scooters means proper scooters. Classic geared scooters, as it should. Preparations for this years ride on the 23rd – 26th April are well underway check out the website at www.motoretta.co.nz (The event is now rebranded Mottoretta NZ Motto GP due to legal reasons).The website is very smart – I love the new branding. Check out the team names, that’ll give you a flavour of the event. if you want to take part… sorry… you’re too late, it was all booked up by September. Maybe get a team together and stick it in the diary for 2016? It’s something I’d love to do one year, but couldn’t have sone it this year anyway as I’ll be in Italy for something rather special and scooter related… watch this space!
