We’re back. It’s been almost two years since Benzina 14 went to the printers and, to be honest, that’s a good thing. It’s allowed a regrouping and a confidence that another three issues could be produced over the coming 12 months. If that sounds like a good thing return to the home page and add a subscription to the cart as well as issue 15.
In this issue there are two big 2018 anniversaries to be celebrated. It’s 40 years since Mike Hailwood’s Formula 1 win that saved Ducati. And 25 years since the first Monster, the motorcycle that saved Ducati. Again. The Italians do like a bit of drama.
Here's what's in the 240mm x 210mm 100 page paperback book:
