The 22nd annual ddition of Ferrari and Ducati’s Wrooom Press Ski Meeting to launch the 2012 season officially kicked off tonight in the usual snow topped mountain resort of Madonna di Campiglio, Italy.
Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden posed with Ducati’s new Superbike, the Panigale 1199 with the Tricolore livery instead of the Ducati GP12, as the Desmosedici will not be presented at the event and will be revealed only at the MotoGP tests at Sepang on January 31st.
Tomorrow the two Ducati riders will face the press, and on Wednesday it will be Filippo Preziosi and Stefano Domenicali (Ferrari Team Principal) under the spotlights for their press briefs.
Thursday it will be Ferrari drivers turn.
The event will conclude on Friday, with the spectacular kart and auto exhibition with the riders and drivers on the town’s frozen lake, but we think that Nicky Hayden will be sitting this exhibition out as he’s still recovering from his recently fractured scapula and broken ribs, and is expected to make decision at the end of next week to see if he’ll be able to test at Sepang.
