Luigi Taveri to be named MotoGP Legend at the Red Bull Ring

Born in Zurich in 1929, Luigi Taveri managed to raise the colors of the Swiss flag to the top of the sport. His versatility and ability to score points in all the categories in which his name was entered, led the Swiss to become three-time world champion and a benchmark in motorcycling.

His career as an active rider began in 1954 and lasted until the end of 1966. During this career, Taveri raced in 50cc, 125cc, 250cc, 350cc and 500cc, obtaining victories in the 50cc, 125cc and 250cc categories, and finishing on the podium in 350cc. 1962 was the year that Taveri won his first world championship, taking the title of the well-remembered 125cc class.

The Swiss won two more championships in the category, in 1964 and 1966, forging a very promising path in the sport.

Before he died, Luigi Taveri left his name in gold letters in the history of motorcycling by being crowned world champion three times. And now, years later and as a tribute and admiration for his contribution to the sport of two wheels, MotoGP will soon crown him as a legend.

There will be no better place for this celebration than the Red Bull Ring in Austria, honoring his achievements in the presence of his family.

“We are overwhelmed and very happy to hear that Luigi receives this great honor. It would be very nice if he could be with us and celebrate this moment with all of you. Those who remember Luigi know that he would be standing here with a big smile on his face and looking words. We thank the CEO of Dorna, Carmelo Ezpeleta, on behalf of Luigi, from the bottom of our hearts,” the Swiss family said with emotion.

In this way, Luigi Taveri will share a room with emblematic figures such as Valentino Rossi, Giacomo Agostini, Mick Doohan, Geoff Duke, Wayne Gardner, Mike Hailwood, Daijiro Kato, Eddie Lawson, Anton Mang and Ángel Nieto.

In addition, pilots such as Wayne Rainey, Phil Read, Jim Redman, Kenny Roberts, Kenny Roberts Jr, Jarno Saarinen, Kevin Schwantz, Barry Sheene, Marco Simoncelli, Freddie Spencer, Casey Stoner, John Surtees, Carlo Ubbiali, Alex Crivillé, Franco Uncini, Marco Lucchinelli, Randy Mamola, Kork Ballington, Dani Pedrosa, Stefan Dörflinger, Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez, Jorge Lorenzo, Max Biaggi and Nicky Hayden.
