There were so many things to look at and feast our eyes on with the biggest attraction of course being Wayne Rainey’s Yamaha YZR500 two-stroke which he piloted to three world titles before he suffered a career-ending injury that left him paralysed from the waist down.
The bike itself has been sitting in a museum in Japan for the best part of three decades, however when the opportunity of riding his beloved Yamaha to Rainey once again, he couldn’t refuse.
We got to witness the incredible moment that he blasted his way up the hill followed by three-time world champion and fellow MotoGP legend Kenny Roberts on the Proton KR MotoGP bike, it was an emotional moment as the crowd erupted into applause as he flew past on his modified machine and may never happen again, it was incredibly special.
