On Friday he can be found in action on his Yamaha in the first free practice session on the Portimao track. But for the moment, the M1 can wait, as Valentino Rossi has switched to four wheels.
Today, the Doctor, together with Luca Marini and Alessio Salucci, are busy in a day of testing with the Kessel team's Ferrari 488 GT3 on the Misano track. Rino Salucci, Alessio's father, published the photos on his social media profile.
All indications therefore point to a participation by the Italian trio in the tenth edition of the Gulf 12 Hours, scheduled from 7 to 8 January in Bahrain.
As everyone knows, Rossi is a true fan of endurance racing, so much so that he has also extended his enthusiasm to Luca and Uccio, who shared the race with him in the two previous editions. The race is a prestigious one and so the Italian drivers will need to arrive well-prepared.
