About the Repsol Honda RC211V '03 Valencia / Rossi's last ride on the Honda RC211V
2003 MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi showed formidable speed and consistency throughout 2003, taking 9 victories out of 16 races. Scoring a podium finish in every race, he extended his run of continuous top-3 finishes to a record 22. His flamboyant performances on and off the track was best exemplified at Valencia in the last race of the season. In the Valencia GP Rossi came out on a flashy RC211V decorated in a 1970's motif. The design was a result of a competition held by a Spanish motorcycle magazine, who had invited its readers to design a paint scheme for Rossi's bike, where Rossi himself served as the main judge.

On top of the new color scheme, the Valencia bike also featured the new triple-exit exhaust layout with silencers removed, which Honda had used from mid-season. Rossi displayed perfect riding in Valencia, taking pole position and holding the lead for the entire last half of the race. Valencia was to be Rossi's last ride on the Honda RC211V, with him transferring to Yamaha for the 2004 season.
