Valentino Rossi races on four wheels

Over this last weekend, Valentino Rossi finished second in the Rally de Monza behind Dindo Capello. Rossi drove a Ford Focus WRC (yes, with four wheels), where the 2009 MotoGP Champion took 4 out of 9 stage wins. The "Doctor" may have won the overall event but his mistakes on stages 4 and 5 handed victory to Dindo Capello in a Citröen C4.

Valentino Rossi also took part in the Rally de Monza Master’s Show. The Master’s show is a competition between all the rally racers in a special elimination round. Despite having the best overall time, Rossi reached the semi-finals where he lost to Dindo Capello. Prior, Valentino Rossi beat MotoGP 250cc star Marco Simoncelli in the quarter final round.

Valentino Rossi Speaks…

"I finished the rally by winning the last super special "Grand Prix" test in the rain and I am satisfied to have taken the fastest time as well in the Master’s, where I was hoping to take revenge on Capello but I was not able to do so. In recent years the level of the Rally de Monza has risen a lot and in order to win it is not enough just to be fast, it is also necessary to make few mistakes. In any case, the last twenty days have been very entertaining for me, firstly with the motocross in Cavellara, then with a Ferrari GT in Vallelunga and now with the rally."

Valentino Rossi will race again next weekend in the "Bettega Memorial", a rally sthat is part of the Bologna Motorshow.
