As you may know, I rarely write up anything about motorcycle racing like MotoGP. I prefer to leave that to well informed and excellent web sites like Motomatters . Everyone has their speciality, and although I love MotoGP with a passion, I am not knowledgeable. But I am going to the Misano race circuit for the San Marino GP. Why you may ask?
I am going on an invitation by Dorna (the folks who organize the MotoGP races) and the San Marino government (San Marino is actually a sovereign state, much like Monaco). That's right, I am going on an invite to write about not only the MotoGP event, but also San Marino.
I shall be touring the Italian countryside for a few days, telling you all about the wonders you can see and do (and more importantly .. eat) in that incredible part of Italy. Obviously I will cover San Marino, but also factories like Ducati and others (the program is still being refined).
It looks like I might be touring on a motorcycle, and if everything goes well, I will have a local guide showing the way, so you can not ask for anything better.
At the Misano race circuit, as I mentioned above, I will leave the articles about the race, racers and motorcycles to the specialists. What I will be doing is talk about all those things surrounding the world of the MotoGP. For those of you who have been following me for a few years, I did something similar when I was invited by the Fiat-Yamaha MotoGP team (click here to read those report ).
I will be in San Marino from Sunday 8 September until Monday 16 September, so I should be home on Tuesday. Many thanks to Dorna for organizing my interviews and to the excellent work done by the San Marino Tourist Office.
Since it takes time to write up reports, process photos and upload them, I will also be uploading photos with quick descriptions to several social media sites (also during the MotoGP). So if you want to see things while they happen, and you are not following me on one of the social media sites, I recommend you do so at one of these sites:
