Minichamps Yamaha YZR M1 Valentino Rossi Laguna Seca 2010 1/12 Scale. Diecast metal and plastic parts. 122103246
Only one week after his sensational comeback, Valentino Rossi faced a difficult task. With a total length of only 3610 meters, the Mazda-Raceway-Laguna-Seca is the shortest circuit in the race calendar and yet one of the most challenging, due to its modernisations. The MotoGP riders need to keep full concentration during the entire lap and for Rossi, who injured his right shin, the corkscrew became extra difficult to overcome.
“Due to the extremely difficult curve combination, I am a bit worried about the condition of my right leg. The curve is already a big challenge for a healthy rider. The quick changes in direction, as well as the steep downwards slope after the first left are very difficult. In my case the extreme difficulty lies in the second change of direction. That is the right corner that has a strong downwards slope.”
Rossi trusted in a stronger boot and leather combination by Dainese. “Actually right after my accident we have set up new standards with Dainese. We have searched for solutions to protect the shin better. After the first race weekend with the new changes in the leather suit and boot, both was strengthened and designed more vast, I can only say that this is a significant improvement for the leg in the particular area. I have no problems with it while I am riding. I can already say that I will use this in the future as well, since we will hopefully be better protected by it!”
