Rossi challenges rally stars at Bologna

Valentino Rossi displayed again his rallying skills in last weekend's Findomestic Memorial Bettega, a rally event held at the Bologna Motorshow in Italy. Driving a Subaru Impreza WRC, a model he already competed with in previous events, the Italian faced several specialists of the discipline.

The MotoGP Superstar raced against Piero Longhi, the Italian Rally Champion, but it was WRC regular Gigi Galli, official driver of the Mitisubishi Ralliart team, who took the final victory ahead of Briton Mark Higgins.

Around 50,000 people witnessed the event and saw Valentino Rossi taking three overall in another surprising performance on four wheels.

The Bologna Motorshow welcomed various MotoGP riders this week, as they were invited to attend promotional and media events, but also to have a taste of action taking part to different kinds of exhibition.
