welcome to the october edition of scootering

Finally it’s started, albeit only three pages, but it’s started… the new Vespa tuning and upgrade section! It’s been on the cards for months now but there’s been so much going on we’ve not had time to collect the necessary scooters, components and data until now. It’s been noted that the magazine has been ‘Lambretta heavy’ for the past few editions, which is not something we planned, it’s just happened to work out that way with the volume of stuff coming in. So although we’ve wanted to get more Vespa items in sooner, it’s abit like turning a big ship around – these things take time. But the good news is, it’s started, and it’s something I’m passionate about. I’m a tuning enthusiast through and through, so the prospect of spending…

lambretta racing at: san remo xxvii

The San Remo XXVII held on September 3-4 was a great opportunity for everyone to get their classic race machines out and actually ride them on the road as competitively, if desired, and as fast as they wanted! In Italy the law is strict on bikes and scooters when it comes to modifications, racing, and noise so some of these machines rarely see the light of day. For the visitor it was an opportunity to get up close and personal with some historic dream machines of yesteryear and their riders. The event in the past has drawn some real historic names such as Agostini, and this year was no exception with Freddie Spencer and Michael Redman in attendance. This year also brought out some historic race winners such as TT winning Manx…

tom ashe remembered

Scooterists from as far afield as the West Midlands travelled to Weymouth on July 15, to pay their respects at the funeral of Tom Ashe, highly regarded member of the Dorset Lowriders. Tom passed away on June 25, after a period of illness which he faced with typical humour and inner strength. Originally from the West Midlands, Tom was a Mod at heart but loved all aspects of scootering, being Number One of the Birmingham E-Types in the 1980s. After relocating to Weymouth with the love of his life Dawn and their son Thomas, it wasn’t long before Tom became a popular figure in South West scootering circles. Whether by GP, GTS or his favourite Spanish GS, distance was no object when it came to attending a rally- so long as…
