Silverstone announces Red Bull partnership for MotoGP

"We've lined-up a world-class entertainment package with Red Bull - what's more, it's all free, adding further value to the cost of a MotoGP ticket."
Silverstone has secured the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Red Bull Matadors and trials legend Dougie Lampkin as part of its entertainment package for the 2011 British MotoGP weekend.

Silverstone will host rounds five and six of the Rookies Cup, where the best young talent from 15 nations will battle it out on the Saturday and Sunday of the MotoGP weekend, hoping to emulate the likes of Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo on Silverstone's super-fast Grand Prix Circuit.

Away from the track, the Red Bull Matadors will be a spectacular new addition for 2011.

Throughout the weekend, the UK's most dynamic aerobatic team will be taking to the skies and wowing the Silverstone crowd. Aerobatic gold medallists Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones will be performing breathtaking manoeuvres and extreme displays in their high speed stunt planes.

Back on terra firma, Dougie Lampkin MBE will be returning to Silverstone again this year, providing further off-track entertainment. The twelve-time FIM Trial World Champion, renowned for his mesmerising skills on two wheels, was a huge draw in 2010 and is back by popular demand to perform several shows throughout the weekend.

In addition, the Red Bull grand prix riders – British 125cc and Moto2 riders Danny Kent and Scott Redding, and MotoGP rider Dani Pedrosa – will be signing autographs and answering questions from the fans in public interview sessions; while a mobile Red Bull DJ will be out and about, playing music in spectator areas.

“We promised MotoGP fans a better experience at Silverstone, and in 2010 we delivered just that. The feedback from the fans, and everyone who came to Silverstone last year was fantastic. But we want to deliver even more this year,” said Richard Phillips, Managing Director of Silverstone Circuits Limited.

“First and foremost, the fans come to watch the racing and see the likes of Rossi, Lorenzo and – of course – Cal Crutchlow go head-to-head. But the off-track entertainment and facilities are crucial to the overall experience.

“Many of the fans spend three or four days at MotoGP and it's important that there's plenty to keep them and their families entertained. We've lined-up a world-class entertainment package with Red Bull - what's more, it's all free, adding further value to the cost of a MotoGP ticket.”

Far as I'm concerned you can shove Red Bull entertainment right up where the sun don't shine. I went to X Fighters at Battersea last year. The riding was phenomenal. But the organisation was shytte. The stawt (reverse it) on the entry had a huge argument with me & my missus about taking in food and drink - tho we carried excatly what was said on the website was permitted. And when I objected in a reasonable measured way, this supercillious tnuc of a supervisor who didn't speak English very fluently said if I didn't shut it I'd be banned - despite having paid 50 odd quid for a ticket! So F**K Red Bull

Traditionally (IMO)the best place to watch is from Woodcote A as you can see down both the new Wellington staight and the Pit Straight (start and finish). However, the start line has now been moved to the new pits complex and whilst the view from Woodcote will obviously be the same, the incentive for overtaking may be a little different as the finish line is no longer where it was.
