Giacomo Agostini, in the seat of the new MV Agusta Brutale 675, will participate in the first edition of the “Tunisia Touring Cup,” organized by the champion Alessandro “Ciro” De Petri.

The event, which will be held from Sept. 30 to Oct. 7, has the objective of bringing together automotive friends and enthusiasts, forming a caravan of over 120 people with motorcycles, quads, cars and trucks.

Giacomo Agostini will be the protagonist of this adventure in the fascinating African desert scenario: he will lead adventure companions through the country’s roads to the Ksar Ghilane oasis for the final celebration.

Apart from the route reserved for road riders, the “Tunisia Desert Cup” is dedicated to desert lovers, with the crossing, in the province of Kebili, of traditional areas, from Douz to Timbain, all the way to Ksar Ghilane.

The list of participants looks like the historical starting order of the most noble Dakar races: there will in fact be Arnaldo Farioli, Claudio Terruzzi, Giacomo Vismara, Beppe Panseri, Piero Polini, Alex Caffi, Gualtiero Brissoni, Marino Mutti, the Agazzi brothers – Mauro e Simone – and many others.
