Valentino Rossi first

Misano definitely brings good luck to Valentino Rossi, who paired with Maxime Martin won race-1 of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS Sprint Cup. The’#46 crew of WRT and BMW beat the #32 twin car of Charles Weerts/Dries Vanthoor by less than a second.

For the Doctor this is the second career seal in the championship convened by SRO. However, it wasnè t a walkover like last year, as the nine-time world champion had to withstand the on-track comeback of an opponent who tried until the end to overtake him, without succeeding.

Valentino Rossi after crossing the finish line first pointed out that it was " much more difficult than last year becauseé this time I had to defend myself". Third place for the Ferrari 296 GT3 of the Emil Frey team driven by Vermeulen-Altoè.
