AMA 250cc Grand Prix points leader Jimmy Filice took part in the filming of a television commercial for Corbin Monday July 9 in Big Sur, California, about 25 miles south of Monterey on the Pacific Coast Highway. Corbin-sponsored Filice participated in several scenes for the commercial, and is seen doing a burn-out, riding his Yamaha TZ250 up to a gas pump in his leathers and pretending that he had lost his wallet, and also riding in a procession of Corbin-equipped sportbikes and cruisers. Filice's TZ250 uses a specially-made Corbin seat pad.<BR><BR>Filice's team owner James Siddall told Roadracing World, "It took all day, but it was pretty cool. I guess that it's aimed at being aired on Speedvision, but I don't know exactly when."<BR><BR>Siddall also said that Mike Corbin himself rode a Honda Gold Wing in the parade of bikes past the camera.<BR>
