29.9.15 Jerez World Capital of Motorcycling

The Consejo has set up the “Andana de la Fama”, a row of 40 butts opposite the offices in Avenida Álvaro Domecq, to be signed by famous motorcycle racers. Jerez is World Capital of Motorcycling 2015 – the first city to be so honoured by the FIM - and the circuit is particularly important for many motorcycle races as well as pre-season testing for both GP and Superbikes and formula 1 cars.

Hollywood-style commemorative plaques will be laid in the pavement of the “Paseo de la Fama” to the 40 greatest motorcycle racers starting with Ángel Nieto, 13 times world champion from the sixties to the eighties, and who is in Jerez to inaugurate the proceedings. Ángel has let it slip that the next bike legend will be Giacomo Agostini.
