Hayden to attend Alpinestars event in Florence

Hayden to attend Alpinestars event in Florence

Alpinestars are giving MotoGP fans the chance to meet Ducati Marlboro rider Nicky Hayden at an event in Florence on Wednesday.

A special event hosted by key Alpinestars dealer Motorama, in the Italian city of Florence on Wednesday evening, will see 2006 World Champion Nicky Hayden meet Ducati racing fans and sign autographs.

Previewing this weekend’s action in Italy Hayden said, “It is going to be really nice for me to race at Mugello as a Ducati rider because I can remember from past seasons seeing all the fans dressed in red and cheering on their riders from the grandstand. It is an honour and a privilege for me to now be a part of this team and this tradition. I hope with all my heart that I can be competitive because those fans don’t deserve to see a Ducati at the back.”

“The track is awesome – there are maybe a few too many bumps but the layout is incredible and in general it is one of the best GPs of the whole championship. I’d really like to have some better results on the board and be going into the factory’s home race with some more experience under our belts but we are making progress and now I hope we can make a good step on Friday so that we can build on it over the rest of the weekend.”

Motorama is located at Mannelli 79, 50136 Florence, and the event is open from 20.00 to 21.30hrs on Wednesday 27th May, with free admission.
