Ride Silverstone with Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith

1 of 2

All of us at some point have dreamed of following in the tyre tracks of Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner and British Grand Prix heroes Cal Crutchlow and Bradley Smith by lapping the legendary Silverstone circuit.

Well an exclusive group of MCN readers and British MotoGP fans will have their Silverstone dreams turned into reality next month.

You could be given the unique chance to ride your own bike on the iconic full Grand Prix circuit with Crutchlow and Smith on March 8.

MCN has joined forces with Silverstone for a special British MotoGP ticket promotion, whereby anyone purchasing at least one full adult race day ticket or full three-day ticket for the race that takes place between Friday June 15 and Sunday 17 will be automatically entered into our special prize draw.

75 winners will be selected to have the once in a lifetime opportunity of lapping the longest and one of the fastest tracks on the Grand Prix calendar with Monster Yamaha Tech 3 MotoGP rider Crutchlow and Tech 3 Racing Moto2 rider Smith.

Simply pick up the phone and order your three-day Silverstone MotoGP ticket on 0844 3728 260 and quote MCN 0803 to be entered into the prize draw.

This year’s Silverstone race is a must-see event and particularly exciting as it is the first time the new generation 1000cc machine will race on UK shores. There’s also the radical new Moto3 250cc four-stroke class, which replaces the old two-stroke 125cc class in 2012.

As well as the chance to ride the jaw-droppingly fast Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit with Crutchlow and Smith, BBC pundit Steve Parrish and MCN Editor Marc Potter will also be completing laps with our exclusive winners, thanks to the California Superbike School.

And on top of that, prior to the on-track activities, there will be a special Fans’ Forum session hosted by BBC’s MotoGP frontman Matt Roberts.

The panel will be made up Crutchlow, Smith, Parrish, MCN Editor Potter and MCN’s MotoGP reporter Matthew Birt, who will be on hand to give you their views and opinions on the forthcoming 2012 world championship campaign.

Winners will be able to then pose their own questions to the panel.

Each winner is permitted to bring a guest to the event, but please note only the winner will be allowed to ride on track. The guest can attend the Fans’ Forum.

All entrants must call the Silverstone Call Centre on 0844 3728 260 and book at least one adult Sunday or Three-Day ticket for the 2012 British Grand Prix (MotoGP) at Silverstone, quoting MCN 0803.

Customers must provide a valid email address as this will be used to contact all winners on 02 March. Lines open at 9am on Wednesday, February 15 and the deadline to purchase your ticket and be included in the MCN draw is 5pm, Wednesday, February 29.
