Rossi tests Maserati.

Reports in Italy suggest that MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi has switched his attention to yet another form of motorsport - following a recent Ferrari F1 drive and his latest MotoGP test for Camel Yamaha - by driving a Maserti MC12 sports car (of the type shown in the top picture) at Misano yesterday (Friday).

Motograndprix.it states that the seven times motorcycling world champion was invited to a secret test for the Racing Box FIA GT/ALMS team at the Italian circuit - and was able to lap just a few tenths of a second from the team's regular driver, Marco Cioci, after only 15 laps in the car.

The Doctor's latest outing means that, since the end of the 2005 MotoGP season, he has shown impressive pace in a Subaru WRC car, world championship spec go-kart, Ferrari F1 car and now a race spec Maserati!

I wish I had that kind of pull. "Well hello mr._______ of __________ racing team. I'd like to test your car this weekend." "Well sure Valentino we'd love to have you test our shit for some free PR." That sound about right?
