Rossi excited about Isle of Man TT visit



Thursday, 30 April 2009
MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi has confirmed that he will make his first visit to the Isle of Man TT races in June this year.


Valentino Rossi is to attend the Isle of Man TT races in June with Dainese, who are the Official Safety Partners of the event. Dainese founder and CEO Mr Lino Dainese will accompany Rossi and Italian MotoGP Legend Giacomo Agostini on the historic visit.
Rossi is to attend the Dainese Superbike Race on Saturday 6th June with Agostini, who raced on the famous Mountain Course between 1966 and 1972, winning 10 TT races, which then held World Championship status.
Fiat Yamaha star Rossi will complete a parade lap of the 37.73 mile (60.7 km) circuit before the start of the six-lap Dainese Superbike race. He will ride behind the course car on a 2009 Yamaha R1, flanked by eight of the famous Travelling Marshalls, who will be riding similar machines.
“I am fascinated by all sorts of motorsport and the Isle of Man is a destination and a race I have wanted to experience for a long time,” commented Rossi. “The MotoGP schedule is always very busy around this time of year, but this time the TT has moved dates a little and there is a week gap between Mugello and Catalunya, so now at last we have the opportunity.”
“I have seen many famous images from the TT races,” he added, “and of course I’ve heard so much about it from Giacomo (Agostini) and Mr Dainese who enjoyed the experience so much last year.”
After the Dainese Superbike race there will be a press conference involving Rossi, Agostini and TT Dainese rider Guy Martin (pictured with Rossi above) outlining Dainese’s future commitments to further improving safety for people who love active sports.
