French fans meet MotoGP heroes

The thousands of French fans who have descended on the Bugatti circuit so far this weekend have been rewarded not only by fascinating qualifying sessions in all three classes, but also by the opportunity to meet their heroes in a special event organised by the circuit officials.

Nicky Hayden, Valentino Rossi, Marco Melandri, Shinya Nakano, Randy Mamola and local favourite Randy De Puniet were amongst a star-studded list who spent time signing autographs and chatting to fans at the ‘Espace Rencontre', one of a series of events being held as back up to the main action here at Le Mans.

As well as the MotoGP, 250cc and 125cc racing, the French fans are also being treated to the second round of the BMW Boxer Cup, stunt shows, a fireworks display, freestyle supercross jumping and an acrobatics show.
