More and more professional motorcycle riders are being tempted to pass over to the dark side of motorsports, that of driving a , gulp, car. You can understand it (more or less) for the Gods of the Dakar or other extreme enduros, but going from MotoGP and SuperBike to a comfortable Audi in the DTM Open link in a new window races....???

Max Biaggi and his DTM Audi

Max will be racing an Audi A4 at the preprogram of the DTM race in Mugello, 13 and 14 of July.

In an interview if DTM, Max was asked "Max, you are a multiple champion on two wheels. Did racing on four wheels ever cross your mind as well?"

His answer: "Back in 1999, I was given the chance to test a Formula 1 car. It was a present by Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo. He wanted me to test the Ferrari. For me, it was a great thing and I did a total of 65 laps at Fiorano. It really was fun and I found out that it wasn’t difficult at all doing lap times that were four or five seconds slower than the fastest time. But I think, finding these remaining seconds to be really out in front takes months. Formula 1 drivers must be born for it. These days, changing from two to four wheels is hardly possible anymore when you want to race at a high level. "

So, for the time being, it looks like he's staying on two wheels. Click here to read the rest of the interview Open link in a new window.
