Two-wheel legend Giacomo Agostini will make a special appearance at Snetterton during the fourth round of the MCE British Superbike for a formal inauguration of a corner being named in his honour.

The 15-time World Champion enjoyed multiple success at the Norfolk track, grabbing victory in the 1972 'Race of Aces' and a podium finish on four wheels in the 1979 Aurora AFX British Formula 1 championship.

Agostini is expected to run parade laps of the Snetterton circuit with MV Agusta riders on Saturday 20th June. The 72-year-old won 13 of his 15 world titles with the Italian manufacturer and is a synonymous name with the brand.
