Former World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss gave F1 star Mark Webber a pillion ride around Queensland Raceways in Australia on Thursday.

"Some things need doing. Thanks to @TroyBaylisstic. Great day mate," Webber wrote on his Twitter page @AussieGrit.

Bayliss commented: "@AussieGrit as expected, you were a top pillion and ripped it up solo as well".

This picture was also posted showing the two Australians having fun on the Ducati.

Bayliss retired from racing after claiming his third WSBK title in 2008 and is one of the few riders to have won in both WSBK and MotoGP.

Seven-time F1 grand prix winner Webber, a long time two-wheeled fan, will start his sixth season at Red Bull in 2012.
