Toseland to perform at Yamaha U.S. event

Toseland to perform at Yamaha U.S. event

James Toseland will have another chance to put his musical skills to use next month, when he performs a set as part of Yamaha´s Laguna Seca activities schedule.

Sat astride his piano stool almost as often as the Tech 3 Yamaha M1 at recent rounds of the MotoGP World Championship, James Toseland will be tickling the ivories once more at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix next month.

The MotoGP rookie –backed by his band, Crash!- will be taking to the stage to provide musical accompaniment on the evening of Saturday, July 19th as part of Yamaha´s annual Laguna Seca events programme.

Yamaha always have a strong presence at the American round of the MotoGP World Championship, with the `Yamaha Weekend of Champions´ a regular fixture for fans keen to add to their autograph collections. This year MotoGP Legends Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson will be amongst the former stars meeting fans on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

`Racing remains the lifeblood of our company,´ says Bob Starr, Yamaha´s General Manager of National Communications, `and this event each year allows us to focus on our racing heritage and its importance to each and every one of us at Yamaha.´

So important is the event to the factory that they are the Proud Motorcycle Sponsor of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, and three years ago helped fund the track improvements necessary to enable the World Championship´s return to Laguna Seca.
