Joy Valentino Rossi: “I really needed this.”

Valentino Rossi enjoys his first podium in the GTWCE championship, a second place at Brands Hatch that bodes well for the future: “I am so happy with this second position and this first podium. I needed this podium, we had come close last year and also in Monza at the beginning of the season, and it finally came,” are the words reported by Gpone.

“We all did a great job, the team, me and Maxime Martin, who was very fast in qualifying. The pit stops were perfect and the result is this nice podium, which is even more rewarding, because the Sprint Cup races are more difficult.”

The nine-time motorcycle world champion had scored a first podium finish with the BMW Barni team last February at the Dubai 24 Hours.
