Prior to the 90th Dutch TT Assen, Valentino Rossi was appointed an honorary member of the municipality of Assen by Mayor Marco Out van Assen. The mayor presented the corresponding award in the paddock of TT Circuit to the nine-time world champion.
The Italian received the award for his performance on the Drenthe circuit and his contributions to motorsport in Assen. Rossi won no less than ten times on the TT Circuit and in that regard only Angel Nieto and Giacomo Agostini have to tolerate. Rossi is only the fourth person to call himself an honorary citizen of the Drenthe capital and he is the only one still alive.
In MotoPlus 13, which will be published on Friday 25 June, you will find a nice overview of all races (23 in total), which Rossi drove on the TT Circuit.
