Honda Champions Dinner Goes Gangbusters

September 4, 2009 - Honda’s “Champions Dinner” has sold out well over a month before the event, with racing fans seizing the opportunity to spend an evening with MotoGP racing stars Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso from Repsol Honda*.

“This night is extremely popular because there aren’t many chances to get up close to these guys,” said Tony Hinton, General Manager of Honda Motorcycles.

“I’m thrilled to meet these riders who are racing at such an elite level, and of course, it will be great to share the experience with our Honda Riders Club members.”

Both Pedrosa and Dovizioso will be interviewed on the night by world renowned motorsports broadcaster Leigh Diffey and former Honda 500cc Grand Prix rider Daryl Beattie.

The event will also feature LCR Honda’s Randy De Puniet, San Carlos Honda’s Toni Elias and Alex De Angelis plus rookie Yuki Takahashi.

The Honda Champions Dinner is just one part of the MotoGP experience offered by the Honda Riders Club of Australia (HRCA), which includes grandstand seating and meals at the corporate facility.

The 2009 Australian MotoGP will be held at Phillip Island from October 16-18.
