Luigi Taveri named MotoGP™ Legend

The next season he competed on 125cc and 250cc machinery, and he came runner up in 1955 in the 125cc World Championship – taking his debut win in the first race of the year. In 1962 he won his first World Championship, taking the crown in the 125cc class. Between his debut in 1954 and his retirement at the end of 1966, the Swiss rider raced in the 50cc, 125cc, 250cc, 350cc and 500cc classes, taking wins on 50cc, 125cc and 250cc machinery, and finishing on the podium in the 350cc class. Monza was the race before Japan and Luigi knew that he had to win Monza to be the third-time World Champion.
