MotoGP Report

With the sun beating down on Le Mans, Valentino put in some ice cool performances in practice and qualifying today at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France, coming out top in both sessions.

Flying in to hook up with Valentino and no doubt to talk about their exploits in WRC, Ken Block was there to support Vale having sat down with him over dinner on Friday night.

Ken’s also been busy signing posters for fans at the Monster Energy public hospitality alongside the Monster Girls plus Bradley Smith and Andrea Iannone.

Knowing Valentino’s on pole and having seen some super strong showings from Pol Espargaro, Bardley Smith and Toni Elias today, the party here in Le Mans shows no signs of quietening down.

It’s gonna be another big night as the Monster Energy watch tower fires up the tunes shortly before midnight.
