The Honda World Motocross team has today unveiled its extra special photo stand display during the Grand Prix of Italy in Fermo for fans to have their pictures taken on during the race weekend.
This new addition to the paddock, which will attend all of the European Grand Prix races, is a great way for the team to interact with race fans, as they can hop onto the CRF 450R in its whip pose to look like a real racer at a Grand Prix.
Riders of the real factory CRF 450R machines Rui GonÃ§alves and Evgeny Bobryshev gave the display a try; “This is great and something really different,” said GonÃƒÂ§alves. “For sure the fans are going to enjoy this and take their pictures on the bike; I can’t wait to see the results,” concluded the Portuguese star.
The stand is situated in the paddock between the hospitality and race trucks of the Honda World Motocross team with the aim of encouraging race goers to try out a whip for themselves. Fans can take pictures on their own cameras, and we’ll be running a competition later in the year for the best whip picture to win some Honda World Motocross goodies.
Russian rider Bobryshev said “It’s really cool as I’ve not seen anything like this before. I think with the angle people can see how difficult the whip actually is! I’m sure the fans are going to love it and we’re looking forward to seeing their pictures.”
