Among the many accolades Valentino Rossi is known for, his close pass on Casey Stoner at Laguna Seca at the top of the Corkscrew ranks up there as one of his most memorable feats. Now Rossi can add this pass – in a car, no less – to his highlight reel. In the offseason, it’s no secret Rossi enjoys a bit of rally car racing, and this past weekend he competed in the Monza Rally Show, alongside a host of big names in the car racing world, like Kurt Busch and Ken Block.
In the end, former F1 ace, Robert Kubica, won the race, with Rossi coming in second. Rossi held the lead, but a mistake by the nine-time champion cost him. In his attempt to claw back some time, he pulled off this spectacular maneuver. Though it wasn’t enough to win, it was definitely enough to steal the headlines. At 35, Rossi is still one of the best riders in the MotoGP field, but a switch to four wheels seems to be a likely move once he decides to hang up his leathers.
