Earlier this month, MotoGP star Valentino Rossi lapped the Silverstone Circuit aboard a World Superbike Ducati 1198R, and then a standard, street-issue 1198 fit with mirrors and a license plate.

The Italian was on the England track for a ceremony of the new Silver Wing at the track. It was also the first time since 2009 since missing the round in 2010 due to breaking his leg at Mugello.

For 2011, the UK track, which will host Round 7 of 2011 MotoGP on June 12, added the Silverstone Wing, which “comprises spacious garages, a media center, offices, and an auditorium.”

The attached video highlights Rossi’s 30 laps at Silverstone aboard the Ducati 1198.
