Rossi gives Jerez Trophy to a special fan

The trophy from the Spanish GP battle now belongs to a young patient at the Parma children’s hospital.

Italian publication gazzetta.it has revealed that Spanish GP winner Valentino Rossi chose to donate the trophy along with a selection of signed gifts, t-shirts & caps.

The recipient of the trophy - Lorenzo - is a patient at the pediatric oncology ward at the hospital. He was presented with his souvenir by the head of Rossi’s official fan club, Flavio Fratesi, who had promised Lorenzo ahead of the race that if Valentino won, the cup would be his.

Flavio had told him: “When Vale wins the GP, I’ll bring you the cup”. Promise kept.
