At Catalunya MotoGP, Valentino Rossi struggled with setup aboard the Ducati GP11, but still fought hard for a fifth-place finish.
And now VR46 will travel to Silverstone for Round 6 of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, a round Rossi missed last season due to breaking his leg at Mugello.
Valentino Rossi/Ducati Auction
Last month, during the debut of the new "Silverstone Wing," Valentino Rossi lapped the Silverstone Circuit aboard a standard, 2011 Ducati 1198 fitted with mirrors and a license plate.
Now Ducati will auction off that bike, with all proceeds going to Riders for Health charity.
