Sports car driver Rinaldo 'Dindo' Capello will drive a Skoda Fabia WRC at next weekend's Monza Rally show [November 27-28].

The event takes place over eight stages using different parts of the famous Grand Prix circuit. Five stages take place on Saturday with three on Sunday plus a 'masters shoot-out'.

"The Monza event is a fantastic fun way to end the season," commented Capello. "There will be race drivers, rally drivers and even bike rider Valentino Rossi.

"It is supposed to be a show but it always becomes a real competition! I was second in 1998 and I won in 2000 but I didn't think there was a chance to compete this year.

"I must thank Audi Sport for letting me take part and also the head of ?koda Motorsport, Martin Muehlmeier - who I know from our Le Mans team - for making the Skoda Fabia WRC available."

The 40-year old former Italian Touring Car Champion was part of the winning team at both the 2003 and 2004 Le Mans 24 Hour races, first with Bentley and then with Audi Sport, and has three other podium finishes at the famous race with Audi Sport in 2000-2002.

This season Capello finished fifth on his debut in the Shanghai invitation event of the German Touring Car Championship [DTM] with an Audi A4 and has also finished well in the Le Mans Endurance Series with an Audi R8. His 16 victories make him the most successful driver of the American Le Mans Series [ALMS].
