Vinnie Jones to clear up unfinished business at Jerez

Vinnie Jones to clear up unfinished business at Jerez

Hollywood hardman Vinnie Jones will fulfil a lifelong dream later this year when he attends the Gran Premio Marlboro de España at Jerez. The former Welsh international footballer is a self-confessed motorcycle fanatic and had wanted to attend a Grand Prix during the 2002 season but was unable to make it due to his exhaustive acting commitments.

However, Jones was taken by surprise at a recent bash held to celebrate his birthday, where he was invited to the third round of the 2003 MotoGP World Championship in Spain. The actor, who featured alongside Brad Pitt in the hit movie `Snatch´ and stars in the lead role of recent release `Mean Machine´, gladly accepted the invitation and will no doubt be looking forward to watching teenage compatriot Chaz Davies do battle in the 250 class, as well as witnessing the latest generation of booming MotoGP four-strokes for the first time.
