The words of Valentino Rossi

First race of the season for Valentino Rossi, who will make his GT World Challenge Europe 2023 debut this weekend in the WRT team’s BMW M4 GT3 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

“Finally! I’m happy to start the European season with Team WRT and the new car, and to do it on a fantastic, historic track and in Italy,” said the Doctor on the eve of the race. “It will be my first time with WRT here, as last year we raced at Imola, in an important race to understand the competitiveness of the BMW M4 GT3.

“I’ve done two preparation races, Dubai and Bathurst, and we’ve done a lot of testing all over Europe, with a lot of progress in understanding the car, but there’s nothing like a real race weekend to assess its potential, speed and behavior, as you’re up against rivals. With 55 cars on the track, it will be a real challenge and we will see where we are.”
