Thumbs up Schumacher ,McGuinness , Mamols , Espargaro , Flint

The event saw Monster Energy and the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team bring together F1 legend Michael Schumacher and an all-star line-up of two-wheel talent, including fellow greats of their sport: John McGuinness; Randy Mamola, star in the making Pol Espargaró, and endurance racer Keith Flint to ride on a specially arranged track day.

“Riding with Michael was so good. What he’s achieved on four wheels makes him the Godfather of motorsport”, Said a buzzing McGuinness, who has 19 TT wins under his belt, as he tried to take in the day’s experience. “I wasn’t expecting him to be anything less, but he’s fast! You can see his enthusiasm for motorcycles and it was a massive pleasure to spend the day with him.”

The complement was emphatically returned by seven-times F1 World Champion, Michael Schumacher: “Coming here I felt so proud to be able to turn my hand at riding a bike with guys I really admire. I can’t begin to explain how much fun it was to ride the track with the likes of John, Randy, Keith and watching Pol Espargaró’s huge talent.”

Prodigy member Keith Flint no stranger to bikes having been an active member of racing paddocks for several years: “I was truly able to use the word ‘legend’ to describe the company I was keeping; both from four and two wheels. As I pulled out of the pit lane I mentally pinched myself as I followed out Randy Mamola, Michael Schumacher and a true gladiator in John McGuinness. That Espargaro kid is a bit of a handful too isn’t he?”
