Valentino Rossi will attend the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed which will debut June 28th. Rossi will be accompanied by Takaaki Kimura, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd Executive Vice President and help Yamaha fans and riders celebrate the company's 60th anniversary.
Rossi will fly to the UK after taking part in the race at the Dutch TT Assen on June 27th, the only Saturday race in the MotoGP calendar. A fan of this legendary festival way before he received an official invitation to take part in it, The Doctor is thrilled to be a part of it, especially on such a special occasion.

It will be my first time at Goodwood, but I know this event pretty well. I have read so many stories about the Festival, and I have also seen many videos. The atmosphere looks great. This event has the power to gather so many drivers, riders, and motorsport VIPs and it is a great opportunity to have fun together," Rossi declares.

Now, while the very presence of Valentino Rossi is a major plus for any motorsport festival in the world, this year's edition will provide the audience with a treat so special that it sounds almost unbelievable.

Valentino Rossi will not travel at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed only with his backpack. He will have his racing leathers with him... because his MotoGP Yamaha YZR-M1 bike will also be there!

"I'll ride my Yamaha YZR-M1 to celebrate Yamaha Motor‘s 60th anniversary, but I might also drive a few cars... I would like to thank Lord March for inviting me to the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. I am sure it‘s going to be an incredible day, and I look forward to being there,” adds Rossi.

That is if you haven't booked the dates for the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, you'd better act quickly. Don't miss the chance to see one of the most iconic motorcycle racers take part in the 1.16-mile (1.86 km) Hillclimb event, aboard one of the most exclusive and hard to see so close bikes in the world.
