Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 19, 1949
Death: May 16, 1976

Motorcycle racer. Born in Romagna, Italy. Buscherini was a tiny man weighing a mere 50kg, but known for extreme bravery even recklessness when racing. He began racing in 1966 on a Minarelli and then moved to a Malanca to win the Italian Hill Climb title in 1968 and 1969. By 1972 he'd won the Italian 50cc Championship but a bad crash in a 125cc race at Brno resulted in a lengthy recuperation. Recovered, he returned in 1974 to win the Italian 125cc Championship on a Malanca and moved up to the 350cc class winning at Brno in a Yamaha-Diemme. The next year at the GP of Nations at Mugello in the 250cc event, his Yamaha crashed at the Arrabiata Uno corner and was struck by his own bike. He died from chest injuries. In the earlier 125cc race he had set the fastest lap before retiring.
