Ducati's rise to a global brand and racing success began when Ducati Meccanica's first director, Dr Giuseppe Montano, persuaded the legendary Fabio Taglioni to join the factory in May 1954. Taglioni had worked for two companies before joining Ducati, showing a flair for designing lightweight engines that could win the important "Gran Fondo" (large fund, i.e. big prize money) races. The most important before the Second World War had been the Milano Taranto, a near thousand-mile dash from Milan down Italy's east coast.

But throughout the 1950s it was a revitalised Motogiro d'Italia that captured the public imagination. This race was run over several daily stages to gain the maximum publicity, with entries restricted to motorcycles closely related to ones the public could buy. Nothing larger than 175cc was allowed, again reflecting what was selling.

Taglioni's first design for a Gran Fondo racer had been a 75cc single manufactured and raced under the Ceccato name. His next was with Mondial, working on desmodromics and 175s that won both the Milano Taranto and Moto Giro in 1954, the only time a manufacturer was victorious in both races in the same year. When Taglioni wasn't invited to Mondial's celebrations he quietly cleared his desk and left. He could have had a steady salary at anywhere from Ford to Ferrari, but chose Ducati simply because he was promised the autonomy necessary to build world class racing motorcycles.

Success in the Motogiro quickly came to mean success in the showrooms, so Ducati's failure to achieve a single in the 1953 and 1954 events had weighed heavily on Montana's mind. Unsurprisingly Taglioni's initial focus was on the urgent need for a new motorcycle that could survive, and ideally win, the gruelling road race.

Taglioni's first offering was the Gran Sport, a 99.66cc single with what would become Ducati's trademark bevel and shaft driven overhead camshaft. Laverda immediately protested that the Gran Sport wasn't a true production bike, but rather a dedicated, hand-built, racer that the competitions' pushrod overhead valve models would have no chance against.
In truth Laverda had a point. Even though the Gran Sport did eventually go into production, it was in limited numbers, and at a price that reflected its complexity and the expertise required during assembly. Nonetheless the 1955 Motogiro made Montana a very happy man when the new Gran Sport took every place bar one in the 100cc class. One even managed fifth overall, beating a great many 175cc machines.

Building on this success Taglioni immediately planned an enlarged Gran Sport by upping the engine's bore to 55.25mm. The resulting 125cc motor proved even more dominant with Giuliano Maoggi taking the new motorcycle to victory in the 125cc class of the Milano Taranto a few months later. He would then take the Ducati to overall victory in the 1956 Motogiro.

Whilst the bevel singles went into production as sporting ride to work machines, Ducati also offered for sale a new racing 125, the F3. This bore little relation to the production models, being a hand built motorcycle in the mould of the Gran Sport, with sandcast engine components and specialist cycle parts that meant little was interchangeable with its road going cousin.

Inevitably a 175cc version of the F3, but outside Italy the 175 class was rarely considered important. When Michel Barone won the 1960 250cc French Championship on a prototype 250 Ducati single, it was inevitable that production and F3 racing versions would follow.

Only available in 1961 and 1962, the 250F3 (sold by UK importer Vic Camp as the Manxman) had a sandcast motor that carried over the 175's ribbed conrod and longer, stepped, crankshaft. Unlike previous F3s the 250's head incorporated bosses to allow desmo closing rockers to be fitted, and at least one left the factory so equipped. The clutch cover also omitted an inspection cover and drilling to allow a kick starter. While the bore and stroke were the same as the roadster, at 74 x 57.8mm to give 248.6cc, the carburettor was a 29mm Dell'Orto SSi 29A (rather than 27mm). The frame was unique to the 250F3, and the cycle parts were very different to the roadsters: for example, the F3 featured 19" – rather than 18" – wheels.

On the 11 August 1962 Campbell Donaghy finished the 250cc class of the Ulster Grand Prix – then a round of the world championship - in fifth place on an F3 Manxman, gifting Ducati their first ever world championship points for a 250 single. Three works Hondas finished ahead of Donaghy, followed by Arthur Wheeler's famous Moto Guzzi, making the achievement all the more remarkable.

And the motorcycle offered here is that very machine. The Amadori brakes (200mm front, 160mm rear) identify it as a 1961 model although, as a racing motorcycle its entire life, the lights and other fittings that made the F3 road legal have long gone, as has the original fuel tank. However, these were also fitted to various road going Ducatis so could be reinstated should the new owner wish to do so.

As well as success at the 1962 Ulster Grand Prix, this 250F3 Manxman saw action on many other occasions. Mick Walker said he saw the bike at Mallory being ridden by Donaghy in 1962. It was then sold to Bob McCurry who rode it to wins at Cookstown and Tandragee (and possibly Skerries) in 1963. But McCurry was set on replacing the Ducati with an Aermacchi, which led to a sale to its third and current owner. Like Donaghy and McCurry, he lived in the Limavady area, a part of Northern Ireland that the Ducati was delivered to new and, until now, had never left.

The original heel and toe gear change had been sawn off when purchased and, in 1964, the vendor commissioned the twin plug conversion from Campbell. Donaghy always helped the current owner out with the bike, and Ducati also supplied some parts for the bike, for example following a crank pin seizure in its first North West 200. It ran in that legendary race in 1967, '68 and '69, as well as at Cookstown, Kirkistown, Tandragee, Temple, Lurgan Park, Dundrod (again in the Ulster GP) and at Antrim, loved and enjoyed as a club racer.

In the early 1970s the bike was laid up as family came along and remained in a shed for much of the following 35 years. Then, 12 years ago, it was restored for showing at the Ballymoney Show. Removal of the cylinder head and barrel revealed everything to be to the owner's satisfaction and, since restoration, the Ducati has been kept in the house, having last been started and run at the point of restoration. However, recommissioning would be needed prior to returning to the road or track.

So, this Ducati 250 F3 Manxman has been in the same ownership for 55 years and, until now, has only been seen twice in public since it was retired from racing, most recently at the 2018 Limavady Show. It represents a unique piece of Ducati and Irish road racing history that will surely greatly enrich its new owner either as a starting point for further restoration or a patinated touchstone to a glorious past.
