Rossi Tries An MC12
Amid all the fuss about Valentino Rossi trying an F1 Ferrari, the multiple motorcycle champion was in another kind of car altogether at Misano yesterday, Friday.

Rossi completed 13 laps in a Racing Box Maserati MC12, and with a new set of tyres he apparently lapped in 1:27.00. For comparison, Marco Cioci set a 1:26.7 in the same car.

The suspicion is that Rossi might make an appearance in an MC12 in the second half of this season, perhaps in the FIA GT Championship? He can't keep on racking up world motorcycle titles ad infinitum...

With thanks to our man 'in the know' in Italy.
