First time in the historic Brands Hatch circuit, and first time in a sprint race for Valentino Rossi
Valentino Rossi this weekend will compete on the Brands Hatch track, in England, for the second round of the GT World Challenge. Driver number 46, who will share his Audi with the other WRT driver Frédéric Vervisch, presented what is an unprecedented challenge for him: “It will be the first sprint race of my career, I’ve never faced a type of similar race “.
“We need to be faster and adopt a different mentality from endurance races – specified the Doctor -. We must also be perfect in the pits so as not to waste time. It will also be my first race at Brands Hatch, which is a very difficult and technical track. . It won’t be easy, but we’ll give it our all and I’m looking forward to being the protagonist and working with Fred and the whole team. “
