Luigi Taveri (19 September 1929 – 1 March 2018) was a Swiss motorcycle road racer who specialised in the smaller engined machines. He was three times world champion in the 125 cc class of the Grand Prix road racing championship, in 1962, 1964, and 1966.[1]
Racing background[edit]
Taveri made his world championship debut in the 1954 season, racing in the 500 cc class on an Norton motorcycle. In 1955, he took his first win in the 125 cc race at the Spanish Grand Prix. He took one more win in 1955, in the 250 cc class at the Dutch TT.
He participated in the Isle of Man TT on several occasions from 1955 to 1966 with three victories and several second places amongst his results.
During his career he rode for MV Agusta, and became a works rider for Ducati, MZ, Kreidler and in 1961 for Honda.
After competition, he continued in the sport by demonstrating historic machines.
Taveri died on 1 March 2018 of complications from a stroke at the age of 88.
