Both Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo will be riding with special one-off liveries at this weekend’s US MotoGP at Laguna Seca, decorated to celebrate the launch of the Fiat 500 in the US.

To decorate the bikes, Yamaha asked fans of the team to send in photos of themsleves which would be used to fill 500 vacant spots on the bike. Needless to say, there were more than enough responses!

According to reports, the spaces on Valentino’s bike were filled in under 15 minutes! Also on the bike is the Fiat 500 logo, decorated with the US stars and stripes.

Minichamps has, in the past, released a 1:12 scale replica of Rossi’s special liveries, and we are hoping that this one will be announced as soon as possible.
