MotoGP Legends to ride at Phillip Island

Three of the biggest names in the history of Australian motorcycle racing will ride again when the ‘Legends of MotoGP’ display takes to the track at the 2009 IVECO Australian Grand Prix.

For the first time since the inception of the ‘Legends of MotoGP’ display, Troy Bayliss will join MotoGP Legends Wayne Gardner and Mick Doohan on the grid at Phillip Island. The trio will ride demonstration laps of the 4.4km circuit in front of a bumper crowd on Saturday, 17th October and Sunday, 18th October.

Australian Grand Prix Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Drew Ward, said the inclusion of Bayliss completes the perfect line-up of Aussie superstars.

“It was Gardner, Doohan and more recently Bayliss’ success that has helped to cement Australia’s reputation as one of the world’s greatest motorcycling nations,” Ward commented. “We are thrilled to announce them as a part of the on-track line-up at the 2009 IVECO Australian Grand Prix.”
