Default Rossi in WRC..

I dunno about Rossi in F1.. but he is back behind the wheel in a WRC car..

he earlier entered in 2002 in Rally GB in a Peugeot 205..
he is now entering Rally New Zealand in a Subaru Imprezza, the same car Atkinson drove in Germany.. he is entering as a privateer though, not a part of the SWRT team..

well his first time a WRC car didnt end so well.. would really like to see what he can do in NZ.. should be great..

Mama Mia! Thats great news as I might be going to NZ to watch the NZ WRC. It will be good to see Vale rallying in my favourite WRC team, Subaru. Hopefully everything goes per my plan, so I able to go see the WRC.

Rossi had tested a WRCar something like 2 years ago, and had stated that he preferred WRC to F1, since there is no predictability as far as driving styles are concerned in the former.

and waiting for November 10th...

well rossi is a multitalented guy...rally newzeland is a very fast rally with the slowest corner is taken around 95-100kph speeds can reach upto 200-215kph as khaddu said he wont even be near to the front runners espically when marcus is in good form and the car he is driving

may be he can finish tha rallye can its a fast flowing event but absolut concentration is required follow tha pace notes properly and if it rains tyre choice is crucial...as the best phrase in the WRC does "we will see"
