After the introduction of the entrance and Fiat Yamaha team Open link in a new window hospitality area, it was time for some of the more serious business, that of seeing the pits, and of course their two famous riders.

We'll no longer show you the number of security check points (see the previous post), but needless to say, the MotoGP area is probably better guarded than the White House. At least here, there were no un-invited party crashers....

So we headed down the pits area

The wall-to-wall trucks were very visible, it's hard to miss

Trucks as far as the eyes can see, on both sides (left and right)

In the midst of all these trucks are two, blue trucks. The Fiat Yamaha team Open link in a new window trucks, the left one is Rossi's, the right one Lorenzo's.

Everywhere you looked are small 50cc Yamaha scooters, used by the team to get around.

Once you get through the last security, you are in THE PLACE, the pit box of the team.

In the main work area, is one Yamaha race motorcycle.... but when you look outside...

In the mean time, the only sign of Rossi were two of his helmets.

And then Rossi walked out, and the noise level was that of a 747 taking off.

He was besieged by fans and photographers alike.

He went into a conference huddle with his engineers over his bike.

In the mean time Lorenzo was leaving, and went past a few die-hard fans.
