A Million Dollar Smile photo exhibition opened in memory of The Kentucky Kid

As the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship paddock continues to remember the late, great Nicky Hayden the first of many tributes for the American began this weekend at the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo d Dino Ferrari di Imola.

With the paddock preparing for the Pata Italian Round, members of the paddock and fans gathered at the Imola circuit to view an exhibition put together to remember Hayden and his famous ‘million dollar smile’. A permanent feature all weekend, the tribute captured the essence of his charisma and charm which is missed throughout the WorldSBK paddock, and will be on display until the 10th June.

As WorldSBK and the motorcycling community continue to remember Hayden, with it approaching one year since he lost his life in a tragic cycling accent, the spirit of the American continues to live on.

Soak up some of the atmosphere from the tribute with our highlights video which can be viewed with the WorldSBK VideoPass.
