Ferrari’s Wrooom PR event drew to a close yesterday, with Fernando Alonso taking victory in the traditional ice races held to mark the end of the festivities at the Madonna di Campiglio ski resort in Italy.

The double World Champion won both races held using go-karts and Fiat 500s against opposition from the Ferrari and Ducatti MotoGP stables.

The first of the two legs was in the karts, where Alonso led a Ferrari 1-2 ahead of team-mate Felipe Massa, with Ducati rider Nicky Hayden finishing third. Hayden’s new team-mate, the acclaimed Valentino Rossi, finished fifth, splitting Ferrari’s coterie of test drivers: Jules Bianchi (4th), Marc Gené (5th) and Giancarlo Fisichella (6th).
