Undoubtedly, Dani Pedrosa has been amongst the world’s best MotoGP riders. He retired from the motorsport last year and the 2018 MotoGP season was his last. It was sad news but it was the truth that we have to live with. We really miss watching him stick to his Repsol Honda and use his short height as a tool. If you miss him too, you can watch him one last time next September!
Dani Pedrosa will take part in the Goodwood Revival and make a one-off racing return in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy. He will take part in the race as part of a two-rider team alongside Joaquin Folch Jr on a Paton. The festival will take place on September 13-15 – the same weekend as the San Marino MotoGP round.

Speaking about Pedrosa’s return to the track, the Duke of Richmond commented, “It is fantastic news that Dani has agreed to compete at the Revival this September. We have always pushed to get the top riders available competing in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy and to have a rider of Dani’s calibre on the grid verifies that ambition. The quality of this year’s entry list is strong from top to bottom, and is sure to be a real classic.”
Pedrosa will take on fellow professionals including Steve Parrish, Jeremy McWilliams, James Haydon, James Whitham, Mick Grant, Jenny Tinmouth and Scott Smart, the nephew of the late Barry Sheene.
