Valentino Rossi just can't stay away from four wheeled racing. His participation in the Monza Rally is now a fixed event every winter, where he drives his VR46 liveried car, but that won't be his only automobile race this year. The Doctor will be participating in the first round of the Blancpain Endurance Series, on April 15, at Monza, in the Pro-Am Cup category. And of course he couldn't pass up the opportunity to drive an Italian legend, a Ferrari, even if it isn't a Formula 1 car.
Vale will share the Ferrari 458 Italia, prepared by the Kessel Racing Team, with his trusted friend Uccio Salucci. The race number has already been chosen, obviously the 46, and the colors will be those of his merchandising company and Monster. "We decided at the last minute to take part in this round, and doing it together with my friend Uccio will certainly be a lot of fun," Rossi said.
