Valentino Rossi flew in Brazil to promote the sales of Yamaha and especially the YBR 125 Factor
He had a Brazilian football T-shirt on, with the number 46 of course! Yamaha needs some sales increase in Brazil, which is a very big motorcycle market.
Afterwards he rode an R1 at the Velo City circuit, along with some 300 selected Yamaha customers and dealers.
In the future Brazil could host again a motoGP round. Valentino will head to Jerez in the following week for the final pre-season tests, commenting on the tests in Austin that they were bitter-sweet.
