Rossi entertains the crowd at Monza Rally Show

Rossi entertains the crowd at Monza Rally Show

The Monster Energy Monza Rally Show 2014 saw nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi joined by a host of big names from the world of four wheels, with the likes of F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and rally driver Ken Block also in attendance.

It was an event not to be missed and a huge Italian crowd turned out to watch their heroes throw down on the famous Monza circuit in the pouring rain.

The ground may have been dampened but spirits definitely were not and The Doctor wowed the crowds with his performance on four wheels, where he just missed out on getting his fourth Monza win to ex-F1 charger Robert Kubica.

Rossi commented, “First of all I enjoyed it a lot, it’s a shame because before the last stage I had a 17 second advantage but I did a mistake. From that moment it was difficult to get back on the pace. It was a good rally, I enjoyed it. It’s always a great weekend and I enjoy seeing all my fans. It’s a good way to close the season.”

On Sunday Mercedes AMG PETRONAS driver Hamilton took out a Mercedes AMG A45 to open the Masters Show, stating afterwards, “I’ve had a really good time, I’m grateful to Monster for bringing me out here. It’s another very cool event, I went out to the MotoGP Catalunya earlier in the year and today to get out and drive on the Monza Rally circuit and see Valentino and Ken Block too, it’s just cool to be part of this amazing event. I want to work with my guys to get a car together so I can come back and compete next year, to do some rallying would be great.”
