MPH Racing has announced plans to deck out Melissa Paris’ RM Racing Yamaha R6 with special livery promoting Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures’ new film, Iron Man 2, starring Robert Downey Jr. and due out in theaters May 7.
Through a unique partnership with Royal Purple Lubricants and Marvel Studios, fans will be able to see Melissa and her R6 donning an Iron Man paint scheme designed by Concept 5 in the two AMA Superbike rounds following Fontana.
Melissa Paris will be racing her Yamaha R6 in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike class. The motorcycle races with the Iron Man 2 livery will take place on: April 16 – 18 at Road Atlanta (Braselton, Georgia) and May 14 – 16 at Infineon Raceway (Sonoma, California)
In addition, Paris will also be wearing a specially designed set of one-off leathers from Joe Rocket and custom exhaust pipes provided by Leo Vince, all of which will coincide with the release of what is sure to be one of this summer’s biggest blockbusters.
"This is really a great opportunity for me," said Paris, "It is a real honor to be associated with Royal Purple Lubricants and this film and to have them as a part of my racing program this year."

Iron Man 2
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero "Iron Man", reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In "Iron Man 2", the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man.
Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.
