Go ahead the thanks to Nacho Santos and Dani Monzón that one of them has sent us the chronicle of the event and the other a good collection of photos to document the Ricardo Tormo Day 2011. In addition, without them this event would almost not exist, first because Nacho Santos is the organizer who "fights" every year for this to continue, and second because Dani Monzón is responsible for the spectacular posters that year after year warn us of the event. Having said all this, we are going to tell what happened last weekend of November 19 and 20 at the Ricardo Tormo de Cheste circuit.

At first the organization was somewhat concerned about the change of dates, since all the previous editions had been held weeks before the last round of the MotoGP World Championship that takes place on the same circuit. But this year that change in the only thing that has affected is that the weather was more unstable and with rain, which detracted a bit from the event. Although being something that the participants are true enthusiasts, the bad weather only affected the runs on the circuit, because it seems that in the pits they lived a perfect couple of days with 120 motorcycles assistants.

Ricardo Tormo Day 2011

This year the participants came from all over Spain, France, Great Britain and even from Belgium. In this way, our Bultaco, Montesa and others they rubbed shoulders with Moto Guzzi, Aermacchi, Ducati, Velocette, BSA and Triumph, there was even some Harley Davidson model from the AMF era. On the other hand, among the competition motorcycles they had the participation of a few jewels such as the Kobas Ex Sito Pons and two very special 125s, a JJ-Cobas ex Champi Herreros and an official Yamaha 125 that was owned by Jorge Martínez "Aspar". It had a good representation of models manufactured by Antonio Cobas, such as the 125 (a former Alex Crivillé) and another 250 in addition to the Siroko. In the drivers section, the presence of the Bultaco Classic Team stood out with Juan Bultó at the helm and his three Bultaco specials: two 250 TSS, a 350 and a Montjuic model for resistance.

This year, as a guest category, Nacho took an even more complicated leap than last year in which he invited classic competition Scooters, since in 2011 the invited bikes were all those that had been manufactured in the Valencian Community. Yes, because it turns out that motorcycles with brands such as Villof of Valencia, or the BJR of Algemesí or the great production of the motorcycles manufactured in Elche such as the Setter, Elig and MHR. I highlight the Romar, the first and only motorcycle made with this brand, a complete work of goldsmithing.

Ricardo Tormo Day 2011

Although not only classics were seen in the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, because a Macat chassis re-fabrication project, a mono-helmet chassis from the 80s and now wants to return to the circuits. To this chassis you can install engines from 80 to 125 cc or they are even experimenting with installing the engine of a Yamaha RD 350. We will have to be attentive to the news.

Finally, it should be noted that the sidecars were at their ease, since they were the only ones who were not affected by the fact that the track was wet and they punctually fulfilled the six runs that had been assigned to them. They even got to practice a couple of co-pilot baptisms, An unique and unforgettable experience. Let's hope that next year the weather will respect a little more and we can enjoy another event like this with the motorcycles rolling on the circuit, which is how a great rider who has disappeared like Ricardo Tormo is really paid tribute.
