Premium Italian motorcycle clothing experts, Dainese, have launched a new 'Dainese Experience', allowing fans to take part in the different sporting disciplines supported by the Vicenza-based brand.

Kicking off on Wednesday, 17 April with a 'Riding Master Class' at Misano, the scheme will allow a handful of lucky participants to ride with nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi, as well as a selection of his VR46 Riders Academy stars.


The Riding Master Class will consist of five session on track with qualified instructors and is reserved for experienced riders, who want to either take their first steps into circuit-based riding, or hone particular skills to enhance their track etiquette. This is split into a series of Racing and Safety classes, ranging from £129 to £629.

Those wanting to ride with either Rossi or his academy members must opt for either the Dainese VR46 Class, or Champions Class.

The Champions Class will see Dainese-sponsored riders; Franco Morbidelli, Luca Marini, Lorenzo Baldassarri and Marco Bezzecchi coaching 16 riders in groups of three or four on their own motorcycles.

Costing £1169 including VAT, riders must be capable of a lap time of between 1’50 and 1’55 (prior track experience is key) and hold a full licence with no horsepower restrictions. 

Limited to just four places, the Dainese VR46 Class will give customers the chance to ride with seven-times premier class MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi for the first time.

Designed to help you improve your lap times and riding style, tickets for the event are being auctioned off to raise money for the Marco Simoncelli Foundation and bids can be placed at
