Luigi Taveri
The Museum Trust is very sad to hear that Luigi passed away at the weekend after a stroke.
Born 19 September 1929 in Horgen) Luigi was a Swiss former motorcycle road racer. He was three times world champion in the 125 cc class of the Grand Prix road racing championship, in 1962, 1964, and 1966. 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 placing 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.

Our thoughts go to his family and friends.

New Forest commoners and organisations are appealing to all drivers to slow down as the clocks go back, to prevent the usual huge rise in animal deaths and injuries in the longer nights.  Nearly 100 free-roaming animals were killed or injured in the New Forest last year.

A quarter  of these, 25 animals, were killed or injured on just four key routes in the evenings in the two months after the clocks go back. Sadly about three quarters of the accidents involved local drivers.

New Forest commoners, the families who own the animals that maintain the Forest, have teamed up with other organisations to focus efforts on reducing accidents this winter.They are asking locals and visitors to add just three minutes to their journeys and drive slowly across the Forest.  Thank you.
