Valentino Rossi helmet of the day: Che Spettacolo

Published: 01 November 2008

To celebrate the launch of MCN’s exclusive 132 page Valentine Rossi tribute bookazine available on November 11, we’ll be bringing you a Valentino Rossi helmet of the day for you to poll on.

The MCN bookazine is a celebration of the career of the man himself with exclusive words written by Valentino and an introduction from the eight-time World Champion and his father, Graziano Rossi.

Priced at £7.99, it’s a limited edition glossy title written by the top names in the Grand Prix paddock – a must for every MotoGP and Valentino Rossi fan.

You can find it in newsagents from November 12 - or you can order your copy direct from Tower by calling 0845-6012672 or by visiting www.subscription.co.uk/products/rossi (Quote code: ROSI). An extra charge for postage and packaging applies to mail order purchases.

Keep your eye on the Rossi lid of the day, as on November 11 we’ll be running a very special competition for one MCN online reader to win a Rossi replica AGV K3 helmet and ten runners-up will get a copy of the Rossi book to celebrate the book launch.

Today we’re bringing you the helmet worn by Valentino after winning the 2004 Australian Grand Prix, and with it his first MotoGP title for Yamaha.

Rossi changed into the plain white helmet with the words ‘Che Spettacolo’ written across the back and his famous 46 across the top during the cool-down lap after beating Sete Gibernau to the chequered flag.

See if you know the answer to the poll below - the answer will be revealed tomorrow with another Rossi helmet of the day.

The answer to yesterday's Rossi helmet of the day was: C) Mugello 2004.
