Hayden, Stoner Go Wrooom | Ice Racing

Wrooom Ice Race

The 20th edition of the Wrooom Press Ski Meeting concluded today with two spectacular races on the frozen lake in Madonna di Campiglio.

Felipe Massa, the Brazillian F1 driver, won the first, in Panda 4×4 cars. Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden, along with Fernando Alonso crossed the line fourth ahead of Giancarlo Fisichella and joined the Brazilian on the podium.

The second was a go-kart race dominated from start to finish by Hayden, who shared the podium champaigne with Massa and Stoner, with Alonso unable to make the finish after crashing into the protective barriers.

The exhibition races were enjoyed by a huge crowd, who took the opportunity to show their support for the MotoGP and F1 stars as they went head-to-head in their machines, resplendent in the colours of each individual driver.

With the Wrooom event coming to a close, the Ducati Marlboro Team’s next appointment is a three-day test in preparation for the new season from 3-5 February in Malaysia.
