VALENTINO ROSSI 4WD
06 December 2005 | News
More and more often these days, Valentino Rossi succeeds in putting on a show even when he's at the wheel of a four-wheel drive Subaru.
At the end of November, the ace from Tavullia was the star of the “Big Race Champion Show Moto e Miti 2005” held in Pesaro as he drove a Gruppo N Model Subaru Impreza and an 1600 Abarth Punto with the determination and skill of an acrobat.
Still hungry for fun, “The Doctor” also raced on a go-kart and served as co-pilot at the Pesaro event, where he appeared just as much at ease behind a steering wheel as when he grips a handlebar. Valentino confirmed his particular talent a few days later by winning the Monza Rally Show held at the Monza Motordrome in a duel with the former world rally champion and authentic WRC legend, Colin McRae
All throughout this special adventure on 4-wheels, the Dainese logo that Valentino has been sporting ever since he first began racing on two wheels was stitched brightly to his chest, and for this special occasion, in fact, Dainese tailored two new regulation auto racing suits (one yellow and one red) that let the Yamaha racer meet these brave new challenges in the utmost safety and style.
On Saturday, December 10, Valentino Rossi will come to the MotorShow to participate in the Bettega Memorial, where there will be four official teams in competition: Ford, Mitsubishi, Peugeot and Subaru. The drivers racing at the Lonsdale Arena need no introduction. In addition to our 7-time GP International Motorcycle Racing Championship winner, who will be driving a Subaru, the race will feature Italian world rally racing hero Gigi Galli in a Mitsubishi, the new Italian Rally Champ Piero Longhi, also in a Subaru, Nicolas Bernardi, the rising French rally star for Peugeot, Englishman Marc Higgins in a Ford, and Tuscan Andrea Aghini, also driving for Peugeot. After the day's racing, the best of the heat will battle for the conquest of the Dante Salvay Night Sprint.
Will Valentino Rossi beat the rest to the finish line at the Bettega Memorial as well?
Let's just wait and see.
