Ducati Race Legend Comes to Scotland...

Paul Smart at Imola 1972

Paul Smart at Imola 1972

The name Paul Smart may not be familiar to modern day bike-race fans but in 1972, Paul won the prestigious Imola 200 race and put the mighty Ducati factory firmly on the path to future World Superbike success.

Although that Imola race was Ducati's first V Twin Superbike success, Paul rates beating Phil Read at the Hutchinson 100 at Brands Hatch shortly afterwards, as a greater achievement.

A prolific racer to Grand Prix level in the 70's, Paul Smart was often overshadowed by his brother in law – one Barry Sheene – together they created mayhem at race tracks around the world!

Paul is still an active motorcyclist and Ducati Ambassador and on the 17th May this year he will be in Ross-shire to host an exclusive dinner at the Ledgowan Lodge Hotel, Achnasheen. During the evening he will be reliving - amongst others - that Imola victory and, I am sure, recollecting some of the more hilarious escapades with Barry.

The following day will be a special treat for the 10 dinner guests as they will get to ride the excellent roads of the West Highlands, with this motorcycling great leading the way, before returning to the hotel for lunch.

The 10 exclusive tickets will cost £185 each and include Bed and Breakfast, pre-dinner drinks, 3 course meal with wine and the post ride lunch.

For more details and to book a place at this not to be missed event, contact the hotel directly on 01445 720252 or


Ledgowan Lodge Hotel is situated in the West Highlands of Scotland at Achanasheen.
