Seven times world champion Michael Schumacher, MotoGP legend Randy Mamola, 19-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness, rising MotoGP Pol Espargaro and Prodigy band member Keith Flint burning laps at the Paul Ricard Circuit in the south of France.
Special event arranged by Monster Energy and the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team. Schumacher leads Randy Mamola through a track day at the Paul Ricard Circuit in the south of France last week.
“Riding with Michael was so good,” said McGuinness. “What he’s achieved on four wheels makes him the Godfather of motorsport. I wasn’t expecting him to be anything less, but he’s fast! You can see his enthusiasm for motorcycles and it was a massive pleasure to spend the day with him.”
“Coming here today I felt so proud to be able to turn my hand at riding a bike with guys I really admire,” the German said.
“I can’t begin to explain how much fun it was to ride the track with the likes of John, Randy, Keith and watching Pol Espargaro’s huge talent.”
“Today I was truly able to use the word ‘legend’ to describe the company I was keeping; both from four and two wheels,” Flint said.
“As I pulled out of the pit lane I mentally pinched myself as I followed out Randy Mamola, Michael Schumacher and a true gladiator in John McGuinness. That Espargaro kid is a bit of a handful too isn’t he?”
