Valentino Rossi drives a Subaru in the Rally of New Zealand

Former MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi will be competing in the Propecia Rally New Zealand from the 17- 19 Nov, driving a Subaru Impreza WRC 2005. Valentino has contemplated a move from bikes to cars in the future and has test driven a Ferrari, Subaru and Mercedes earlier. He finished 11th in the rally on Sunday 19th, improving his position with every stage.

Brad Pitt said this about him”He’s the fastest man on a 1000 cc’s. This guy is a magician. He’s mesmerizing. He probably weighs a buck fifty, and he’s the fastest man on two wheels. It’s speed, but it’s also balance: These are the guys who are laying the bikes on their sides and not going over. These are the guys who are riding on their knees and elbows. It’s pure ballet, on the most powerful motorcycles in the world. Rossi has won the title for the last four years. He doesn’t get rattled. He has a sort of innate sense of balance that’s beyond mortal man. He’s like Lance Armstrong on a motorcycle. Just poetry to watch.”
