With the KR212V adorned with a new livery as of this weekend, motogp.com spoke with Kenny Roberts Sr. about the new deal struck with F1 MAX-X and MGM's Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, which will run until the end of the season and provides some welcome security at a time when the Ilmor GP team have withdrawn from the World Championship due to lack of funds.

The former World Champion stated that "It's a good deal for us, and the bike seems to like it because Kenny Jr was going really well today. I have said before that sponsoring a MotoGP team has never been cheaper so it's just a question of companies coming in."

Alex Copson, President of F1 MAX-X said, "MotoGP is an exciting, trendy sport which parallels the values that Las Vegas represents; adrenalin, drama, glamour and excitement. The two should be united as tens of millions of people visit Las Vegas annually. Teaming with Kenny Roberts will help make MotoGP one of the hottest sports in the US and fits in perfectly with our overall strategy for Las Vegas and motorsport in general. This is a developing relationship, aimed at campaigning a larger program for 2008 onwards!''
