Yamaha and GE Capital have announced the return of one of the most entertaining activities of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix weekend as Yamaha MotoGP Riders Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Colin Edwards and Cal Crutchlow plus Yamaha legends Eddie Lawson, Wayne Rainey and Kenny Roberts will meet their fans for an up close question and answer session prior to the live music set on stage Saturday, July 23, from 6 to 7 p.m.

Official MotoGP commentators Nick Harris and Gavin Emmett will again join the MotoGP riders for the question and answer session that was a major hit last year and fans will be encouraged to join in the fun with questions of their own.

Paul Puma (Executive V.P. for GE Capital) says: “We are very excited about this year’s entertainment and again proud to be part of it. The fact that Yamaha riders will be up close and in person on the GE Financial Stage will make it an event not to be missed!”

Saturday night features a live performance by The Dirty Heads, who Rolling Stone named as one of the Top Bands of 2010, following the MotoGP rider interviews at 7 p.m.

Bob Starr (Communications Manager of Yamaha Motorsports Group) says: “This event will be another way for us to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of World Grand Prix Racing for Yamaha. Thanks to our partners at GE Capital, this interview session and concert will surely add to an exciting weekend of racing and entertainment for the fans and one never knows who’ll be the most entertaining!”
