For the enthusiasts, the famous Laverda 1000 V6 that raced the 1978 Bol d'Or is one of the most ambitious achievements of Italian engineering. But, beyond its unique technical features, many ultimately know very little about this legendary machine built in less than 18 months thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of the small family company of Breganze.
It is in this spirit that this book has been written during many months of hard work to find and collect testimony, factory documents and exclusive photographs, to tell with precision and detail the extraordinary adventure of this legendary machine that remains to date the only real transposition of the F1 technology to the world of racing motorcycles.
This book, dedicated to the complete history of this technological challenge, includes plenty of information and illustrations that have never before been revealed to the public. It gives insight into the secrets of construction of this incredibly complex project and the level of skill and courage that were necessary during the late Seventies to achieve the development of a racing motorcycle capable of participating at the greatest of all endurance races, the Bol D'or 24hour, where it demonstrated a level of performance unmatched so far.
