McNish laps up San Marino MotoGP experience

McNish laps up San Marino MotoGP experience

Le Mans 24 Hours winner Allan McNish was buzzing after experiencing a Ducati MotoGP2 lap of Misano with Randy Mamola on Saturday.

Scotsman Allan McNish was the latest four-wheeled competitor to take in the MotoGP experience on Saturday, as he enjoyed a high-speed lap at the Gran Premio Cinzano di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, with ex-rider Randy Mamola at Misano.

The former Formula 1 star told motogp.com, `It was just an unbelievable experience. To sit on the back of a MotoGP bike is just unreal. The braking force was so, so strong! I was really having to push hard on my knees and hands to make sure I didn´t fall into the back of Randy. The acceleration and agility blew my mind!´

Comparing the demands of MotoGP to car racing he added, `It is different but some of the basic theories are still the same. You have still go to be quick out of the corners, brake late on the straights and everything else. To feel it `one-to-one´, the rear chattering going into the corner, the lean angles, it was just unbelievable.´
