There is a strong rumor that MotoGP star and veteran Valentino Rossi could get a wildcard from works Hyundai WRC team for the closing event of the season at Monza Rally.
I followed previous Monza Rally editions and it was a circuit action, something that we are not used to in the World Rally Championship.
It can be funny but not that funny because circuit racing are for circuits and rallying is for open roads, cuts, gravel etc.
The problem is coronavirus pandemic, otherwise Monza Rally would not into the WRC in 100 years. It's just not the nature of the sport.
But fans want action and Italians love Velntino Rossi who drives some rally or rallies every year. And Monza Rally is always on his program.
It is still not official but Vale could be in the works Hyundai i20 WRC.
