Edwards and Melandri to star in chat show

Two of the stars of MotoGP will be visiting the quaint market town of Northallerton in North Yorkshire for the tenth annual ‘Night With The Stars' which takes place next Tuesday evening, 19th July at Club Amadeus.

The ‘Texas Tornado' Colin Edwards, will be joined on stage by Italian sensation Marco Melandri in the chat show organised by the North Yorkshire Road Racing Supporters Club and a bumper crowd is once again expected to attend this unique event which is only days before the British Grand Prix at Donington Park.

Edwards, team mate to the legendary Valentino Rossi this season in the Gauloises Yamaha team, makes his fourth visit to the annual show whilst Movistar Honda ace Melandri will be making his debut.

Accompanying the GP megastars on stage will be two big names from the British domestic racing scene. Eight times TT winner and outright lap record holder John McGuinness will be sharing the spotlight with British Superbike Championship sensation Michael Laverty in an evening of fun aimed at race fans getting up close and personal with the stars.

The evening will be hosted by BBC MotoGP commentator Steve Parrish, ably assisted by BSB presenter Larry ‘Scoop' Carter and as well as the chat show, there will be a raffle, auction and trade stands as well as a late bar and night club.

Laverty's BSB Honda Fireblade will be on display along with other bikes and as an added tempter, Honda Racing's Chris Herring has procured a unique lot to be auctioned in aid of the 10 year old daughter of bike journalist Gus Scott, who was killed earlier this year.

Two VIP paddock passes for the British Grand Prix the following weekend will be on offer along with a prized vehicle pass for event and three lunches (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) with Repsol Honda, Movistar Honda and Gauloises Yamaha.

Doors open at 7.30pm with the show starting at 8pm and admission is £8.00 per adult with accompanied children £2.00. All proceeds will be donated as usual to local riders.
