A superb and rare photo, taken during the 1961 Swedish 125cc Grand Prix which was ridden on september 17 that year, on the circuit of Kristianstadt.



Shown on the #29 Honda RC 144 125cc four stroke 2-cilinder (dohc 4-valve) works GP racer is Luigi Taveri. He would win the race and would finish the 125cc world championship that year in THIRD place, behind his Honda teammate Tom Phillis and MZ rider Ernst Degner.



Honda was the first Japanese manufacturer that entered the world of GP racing, and they focused unlike their Japanese competitors on four stroke technology. The Honda four stroke GP racers of the 1960s are seen as the most complex engineered racers of the 20th century. The Honda racing team dominated four stroke Grand Prix racing in the 1960s with their 50cc 2-cilinder, 125cc 5-cilinder, 250cc and 350cc 6-cilinders and offcourse the amazing fours that graced every class from 125cc to 500cc throughout the sixties.



Luigi Taveri is 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.
