Couldn’t be simpler. And it’s your way to see, for gratis, the world’s best motorbike racer try his hand at four wheels.

Rossi will be driving a Ford Focus RS WRC, in a car bearing support for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.

Children in Need’s Marc Phillips, said: ‘It’s a tremendous honour to have Valentino Rossi promoting BBC Children in Need. We have had a remarkable response to this year’s event on November 14th – and Wales Rally GB will be a fabulous final flourish for us.’

Valentino Rossi added: ‘This is really exciting news. I’m looking forward to Wales Rally GB – and am hoping for a good result at next weekend’s Monza Rally in order to prepare for the forests.’
