With the AirAsia British Grand Prix (MotoGP) just a few weeks away (taking place on 10 12 June), Silverstone is pleased to confirm that Grand Prix legend Mick Doohan will be attending on both the Saturday and Sunday of the UK's premier motorcycle racing event, and he's looking forward to meeting the fans.
After visiting the Isle of Man for the 2011 TT races, five-time World Champion Doohan will be heading to Silverstone where fans will be able to meet the popular Australian at autograph and Q&A sessions. Doohan will also be making appearances on the main entertainment stage on both days of the British Grand Prix.
Commenting ahead of his first visit to Silverstone, Doohan said "I plan to hop over to Silverstone for the MotoGP race right after the TT to catch up with some old mates and meet some of the race fans. I've never visited the place before and with all the new work they've been doing to the track and the pits it all looks pretty cool."
Doohan dominated the then-500cc premier class during the 1990s, winning five consecutive World Championships from 1994 to 1998. The 1997 season was notably his most successful year as the Australian won 12 of the 15 races.
Tickets for the 2011 AirAsia British Grand Prix are available from just Â£16.34. For further information and to purchase tickets visit , or call 0844 3750 740.
