Rossi to run `Italian football´ livery in Catalunya
Thursday, 05 June 2008
Valentino Rossi will run a special `Azzurri´ colour scheme on his Fiat Yamaha M1 this weekend.
Having last weekend shown off a spectacular one-off helmet design at Mugello, Valentino Rossi will once again be personalising his look for the Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya.
The proud Italian will this time be running a special livery for his Yamaha M1, celebrating the start of the UEFA European Championship this weekend. Rossi´s machine will be decked out with a blue colour scheme, commemorating the Italian World Cup-winning national side set to begin their latest campaign on Monday.
`Fiat wanted to do something special for the Italian national team, before their game against Holland. I think that the bike looks really good,´ said Rossi in the pre-practice Thursday press conference.
The first footage of the livery –due to be unveiled at 9.50am- will be available tomorrow on motogp.com.
