The conversation around Formula 1 and the direction the sport is being taken is a hot one. It has become immensely popular with a new younger audience, but has started to alienate a lot of traditional fans who have a huge love of the raw racing without the politics and added drama. Well, we have great news for those older fans. We have discovered a form of motorsport that leaves politics and Netflix documentaries behind. We are of course talking about Vespa racing.

Many people think that Ayrton Senna was referring to karting in the Senna film when discussing ‘pure racing.’ However, we have it on good authority that he was actually referring to this incredible form of motorsport.

Name us another motorsport where the crowds are so close they could pat the competitors on the back as they fly by? We’ve also heard a rumour that Vespa racing is set to become the official feeder series to MotoGP.
