Spies To Race Valencia MotoGP

This just in:SUPERBIKEPLANET

BEN SPIES TO MAKE 'WILD CARD' ENTRY INTO VALENCIA GP

Following the announcement on Thursday that Ben Spies will move to MotoGP in 2010, Yamaha Motor Company now announces that it will enter the Texan as a wild card into the season-ending Grand Prix of Valencia.

25-year-old Spies will participate as a single rider entry of a Yamaha Factory Racing Team, using YZR-M1 test bikes brought over from Japan. The Valencia MotoGP race takes place 6-8th November, two weeks after the final World Superbike round at Portimao, Portugal.

The wild card entry will provide an opportunity for Spies to get extra circuit time prior to his inclusion in the Tech 3 Yamaha Team for the two-day MotoGP test on the Tuesday and Wednesday after the Grand Prix.

Cool

Imagine if he wins the WSBK title and then wins the last race in Motogp this year. Wow?

I'm looking to see if there's any teevee coverage. This will either be completely awesome or a total yawn. Could go either way.

Thats awesome! Curious to see how he does, although im sure a GP bike is quite a bit different from his WSB bike and will take time for him to get dialed on it. Go Ben!!
