Yamaha's Factory MotoGP Team are taking part in the second and final Official MotoGP Test in Jerez, which began today, sporting a special blue Yamaha livery.

The one-off livery will be used by Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards over the three days of the test, including the traditional televised timed ‘qualifying' session on Sunday -in which the premier class riders will have the chance to win a new BMW M if they can top the timesheets.

Of course, five-time World Champion Rossi is no stranger to limited edition outfits, favouring as he does flamboyant bike, leather, helmet designs.

As Yamaha Factory Team Director Davide Brivio explained: "We've chosen this important pre-season event to run in full Yamaha livery and it's a nice chance to thank everyone in the company who has worked so hard over the winter. This could be the only opportunity to see Yamaha MotoGP bikes in this special blue livery as the design and colour will change again for the first MotoGP race in Qatar. I hope our fans and the all Yamaha network will appreciate and enjoy this special event!"
