Valentino Rossi ready for his first WRC appearance

MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi will compete in the Network Q Rally of Great Britain (November 14th-17th), final round of the World Rally Championship. The Italian rider has already had various occasions to switch to four wheels : he raced in the Michelin Race of Champions in 2000 and 2001, but also in the Bettega Memorial Rallysprint in Italy. In Great Britain, he will ride a Peugeot 206 WRC run by the Italian team Grifone, backed by Michelin and Total.

´I can't wait to get behind the wheel of the Peugeot 206 WRC and to take part for the first time in a round of the World Rally Championship, which Michelin and Grifone have made possible for me´ said the 23-year-old Italian. ´I am very keen and very serious about this and I want to get as much experience as I can. I know how difficult this British rally is, but it would be great for me to get to the finish´.
