Motorsport legend thrills at Mercedes me

It is a rare opportunity to be able to speak with one of the all-time greats - but that’s exactly what guests were able to enjoy at the Mercedes me store on Tuesday 23rd October.

Mercedes me was thrilled to host the five times MotoGP world Champion and Mercedes-AMG Ambassador, Mick Doohan for an intimate in conversation style evening just prior to the MotoGP race weekend at Phillip Island. Alongside renowned motorsport commentator Greg Rust, Mick shared incredible insights into his successes as well as the challenges he encountered throughout his racing career, and transition into the business world.

Guests experienced a true rollercoaster of emotions as Mick took the room on a journey through the wonderful highlights and of course some incredibly serious injuries that he sustained throughout his esteemed career – including a graphic account of how his leg was once stitched to the other to assist recovery and improve circulation. The entertaining conversation wrapped up with a Q&A from the audience, providing guests the perfect opportunity to pose their own questions to Mick.

At the conclusion of the in conversation, all in attendance had the opportunity to chat with Mick face to face, have their memorabilia signed and of course pose for photos with the legend himself – or the stunning Mercedes AMG GTR on display for the night – enough to make any motorsport fan weak at the knees.
