London to give Valentino Rossi the red carpet treatment

A movie-star welcome awaits the world´s greatest bike racer as Rossi-mania arrives in London´s Leicester Square, ahead of the Cinzano British Grand Prix. Valentino Rossi lives in London and the flamboyant Italian will arrive in style aboard a Honda Goldwing motorcycle, with an escort of out-riders before offering race fans the chance to take part in a question-and-answer session.

`I can´t wait to start the British Grand Prix party by riding into Leicester Square,´ said the MotoGP World Champion. `I love living in London and British race fans are great. Honda are giving away some top prizes and letting me loose on a big Goldwing so lets get the party started!´

Rossi will arrive in Leicester Square at around 3pm, giving away signed posters and T shirts along with a 15-minute autograph session before leaving at around 4pm. Competitions at the event also include prizes such as a signed helmet and authentic paddock scooter.
