Alonso victorious in Wrooom ice kart race

Fernando Alonso starts 2013 with Wrooom kart win on the ice lake at Campiglio

Fernando Alonso took victory in the traditional ice kart race that brought down the curtain on Wrooom 2013 at Madonna di Campiglio on Friday evening.

The Spaniard started alongside his team-mate, Felipe Massa, in the opening race, which sees all the Ferrari drivers take on Ducati's MotoGP stars. Despite a spin early on, after clashing with Massa, Alonso fought his way back up from last to still take the spoils with a hard late pass on Andrea Dovizioso, for which he later apologised.

Alonso then repeated that win in the second race, where the grid order was based on the reverse finishing positions of the previous race result. Despite starting at the back, it took the two-time F1 world champion only a couple of laps to work his way back up to P1 and thus ensure he took the overall victory. Felipe Massa came in second with Ferrari test driver Giancarlo Fisichella third. Dovizioso led home the Ducati MotoGP men in fourth, ahead of Nicky Hayden and MotoGP rookie Andrea Iannone.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, in the traditional ski race, Fisichella took the drivers' category win.
