The Death Wish Dude is MAD about motorbikes. It must be something about the danger, I would wager. He’s one of those bike nerds who can tell you the make of each motorbike as it whizzes past you on the motorway. He was reeeeally disappointed, then, when he learned that our lovely friend Lu over at Family Affairs was giving away tickets for the AirAsia MotoGP 2011 at Silverstone this weekend. ‘Why can’t we fly over? Please can we? PLEASE? Valentino Rossi, Mum, Valentino Rossi!’ Sadly it’s a no no. And I’m even more disappointed because I’ve now found out tons more information about motorsport’s hottest weekend.
1. There’s more than just bikes.
Who knew? There are stunt shows and even aerobatic displays (oh and for our gentlemen friends, the gorgeous Air Asia stewardesses will be strutting their stuff too *cough*). You can even unwind after the race with a Thai massage (no, not from the stewardesses, sorry).
2. There’s FOOD!
Visit the AirAsia booth and you can ‘Experience AirAsia’ – from Chinese lion dancers to henna painting from India and *gasp* traditional cooking demos and tasting from the incredible Malaysia Kitchen.
3. You can meet the team!
The riders will be at the Air Asia booth for a special signing session on Saturday at 3.30pm (don’t tell the Death Wish One).
4. You can win stuff.
There will be opportunities to win exciting prizes including free flights to Kuala Lumpur and beyond.
Gutted. Absolutely gutted. So if you’re off to the races this weekend, have a great time, and if you’ve nothing planned, head along to Silverstone. It sounds like an awesome weekend.
