"The Isle of Man"
Vespa Rally 180
words : Micke Nilsson (Scooteristen)
Scooter races have been held throughout Europe since the 1950s, and one of the venues was the Isle of Man, the home of the famous Isle of Man TT road race. In the ‘70s, a scooterist from Sweden traveled to race at the Isle of Man on his Rally 180. Though his Rally 180 became famous in the scooter community, it went missing for a long period. In recent years, however, it was discovered, and here, we feature an article from the British scooter magazine “Scoote Nova” that tells the story of the legendary Rally 180 and its revival. The article was written by Micke Nilsson, the editor of the Swedish scooter magazine “Scooteristen.”
