10.5.2007 : MotoGP Heats up! Mugello Madness!

Lukas Pesek wins 125cc in China
CHINA: Most of our team comes from the Czech Republic, so when our local hero Lukas Pesek won the 125cc in Shanghai (the first time a Czech has won a Grand Prix since the 1950s) we were over the moon! Stoner made it 3 of 4, getting into the front right from the start and never leaving, hitting 333kph on the main straight! The unsung hero John Hopkins makes his first podium behind Rossi. Apres-race we hit some top spots in Shanghai where we bump into Jorge Lorenzo and a few others celebrating his 250 win.

ISTANBUL motoGP start
ISTANBUL: Rossi, Edwards, Pedrosa, Stoner and Capirossi caught at the start of the motoGP. Stoner takes his 3rd as Rossi fades with his tyres, and Pedrosa takes himself and Edwards out of the action, and one of our favourites Elias takes a great second. Ride of the race however goes to Alex Barros, taking his Pramac Ducati to a stunning 4th. Off track we had a fantastic time with an opening party going past midnight and Sunday at traditional Turkish grill.

Julian Ryder in Jerez
JEREZ: Rossi takes it in a rather uneventful GP, for us the main action was off track as we launched our limited edition motoGP 2006 Review, authored and signed by Julian Ryder, above sampling the delights at our opening sherry tasting party!

Qatar- Stoner just about to take Rossi on main straght
QATAR: Ok, we are amateur photographers, but professionals at getting close to the real action! This is Stoner in act of overtaking Rossi on the main straight. We have exclusively brought our VIP customers to this vantage point to see (and hear!) the 800s for the first time ever. And does that Duc move!! Moving a bit slower, before the race we bash some sand dunes who will not soon forget our names!

Makes a great gift!

The motoGP season is in full Vrrooom!

So. Perhaps not the walk-over we expected from Rossi! A great year for Ducati fans! We stood at the main grandstand at Qatar and saw Stoner waltz past Rossi in what looks like the preview of the season to come. Can Yamaha make up an astonishing 7kph difference to put Rossi back on track? Is Hayden a one-hit wonder? And can the action on the 125cc and 250cc classes get any more exciting?

Join us to see for yourself. Remember, a motoGP weekend is like 8 weekends in real life: it may look fine on TV, but nothing beats being there!
