Wrooom finishes with a spectacular exhibition

Wrooom finishes with a spectacular exhibition

Ducati Team riders Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden faced Scuderia Ferrari F1 stars Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in an ice-race on the closing day of the Wrooom Press Meeting.

Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden joined Ferrari’s Formula 1 drivers for a spectacular exhibition on Madonna di Campiglio’s frozen lake in front of an enthusiastic crowd of over 5,000 people.

“This week has been a spectacular event, and the races at the end were a lot of fun,” said Valentino. “In the end, I decided to take part because the atmosphere here at Wrooom was so fantastic, and because the fans deserved it. I got a few jolts from the holes, but nothing too bad. It was worth it.”

"This was my third Wrooom, and I think it was the best one yet," echoed Nicky Hayden. "It seems like they just make it better every year. They really treat us good, and we make a lot of friends, and it’s great to see them each year. This is a great way to kick things off, but there’s been enough talking about everything now. It’s time to get out there and do the real thing. I look forward to it."
