Just a few weeks after his career as a MotoGP rider ended, Valentino Rossi found work again with the Belgian team Team WRT.
Engaged after a trial run, which therefore turned out to be conclusive, organized on the Valence route at the beginning of December, Valentino Rossi will take part in the entire GT World Challenge Europe season driving an Audi R8 LMS.
A program that fills the very young retiree of MotoGP with joy: « I am delighted to join Team WRT for a full program. Everyone knows that I have always been a huge fan of motor racing and have always been interested in a career on four wheels after my MotoGP career is over. Today, I am fully available to devote myself to a high level racing program and with a professional approach. Team WRT is exactly what I was looking for and I can’t wait to start this new adventure with them. »
At the wheel of his Audi R8 LMS, and entered in the reigning team of the category, Valentino Rossi will therefore perform the entire 2022 championship with no doubt a small idea in mind, to participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans from 2023.
