Fellow Euro-bike enthusiast and world-renowned Ducati restorer Rich Lambrechts is also a rally sponsor. His shop, DesmoPro, is just across town from Scott’s. Although DesmoPro started in Ohio 15 years ago, Lambrechts moved to Fort Lauderdale a few years ago when he met Vicki Smith, founder of the Ducati.net group and the Ducati Club of South Florida. A former car racer, Smith is also the Ducati Owners Club Liaison for North America, and met Lambrechts while organizing the 2005 Vintage Motorcycle Days event at Mid-Ohio. They bonded over their mutual passion for Italian bikes, so much so that the front room of their shared office/workspace resembles a mini-museum. Official factory prints from the Mid-Ohio Vintage Days Ducati exhibit line the walls, while display cases hold a plethora of Ducati collectibles including a Manens condenser from 1926—Ducati’s first part. “I would venture that our total collection of Ducati factory electronics is more complete than the factory’s,” says Smith.
