Video: Onboard with Cal Crutchlow at Silverstone

Published: 14 March 2012

British MotoGP stars Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith treated a select group of MCN readers to a once in a lifetime experience at Silverstone last week.

Crutchlow and Smith took time out from their pre-season preparations to join winners of a British MotoGP prize draw, run by MCN and Silverstone, that gave our readers the unique chance to ride the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on their own bikes together with two of the fastest riders on the planet.

Crutchlow and Smith rode Yamaha R1 road bikes and the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team rider, who finished in a stunning fifth place during the recent second Sepang test in Malaysia, said: “It was brilliant to meet and greet the fans and be out on track with the MCN readers. I hope I didn’t scare them too much!

"Some of them were pretty rapid to be fair and it looked like everybody really enjoyed themselves and that’s the main thing.

"Hopefully when they come back to watch the race on June 17, myself and Bradley and the other British riders will be able to send them home with big smiles on their faces again.”
