MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi will race in the GT World Challenge Europe this year. At the start of two days of testing before the season, the Italian also revealed the colors of his Audi R8 LMS GT3 car.
The former MotoGP champion took a wet track test in February and impressed WRT team boss Vincent Vosse. “Valentino was really good on the wet track. He has a natural sense of grip on the track, which doesn't surprise me, as we know he's a great natural talent, but he still made a good impression on me. "
The 42-year-old Rossi is aiming for the podium in his first season. “I like Audi, and my team is always competitive. They are always fighting for victories, which is very important. The race car is extremely good and the guys on the team also say my times are not bad. I hope to be competitive and be able to fight for the podium, but I will be able to tell you more when the season really starts. ”
Rossi, who also recently became a dad, said he wants to compete in the 24 Hours of Endurance Race in Belgium. “I have never driven on a track in Spa (Spa Francorchamps). The racetrack is practically mythological, especially for four-wheelers, so I'm really interested in this race, as it's also supposed to be the best race for GT cars. ”
