• In the Italian appointment of the international championship, Andolfi succeeds in front of Nucita and the Under 23 Modanesi • Fifth success in five races for Andolfi in the Abarth 124 rally Selenia trophy • A great begin for the rally Italia Talent crew at the finishing line in the Abarth 500 R3T • The ADAC F4 championship powered by Abarth was won by Hanses, Scherer and Drugovic
The Abarth 124 rally dominated the Rally Roma Capitale, the Italian race in the international championship FIA R-GT, effective for the European and the Abarth 124 rally Selenia trophy. At the end of two really hard stages, Fabrizio Andolfi Jr from Liguria (with Elia Ungaro) was first, and already mathematically the winner of the Abarth 124 rally Selenia trophy and of the Italian championship R.GT, followed by Andrea Nucita from Sicily (with Marco Vozzo), for the first time driving the spider and the young Andrea Mondanesi from Brescia (with Daniele Renzetti), first in the Under 23. The three Abarths arrived at the finishing line before Roman Dumas's french Porsche 911, which is the champion of his category.
The rain made the race very hard but in these difficult conditions the three Abarths from Team Bernini Rally managed to overcome the Porsche driven by the french champion. Nucita was able to make absolutely remarkable performances.
In the Rally Roma Capitale we see the crew from the Rally Italia Talent for the first time, formed by Federico Puleo and Alessandro Cervi, driving an Abarth 500 R3T and managed to finish the race in a great place.
Abarth did a great show in Germany too, where the sixth ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth race took place, in the Sachsenring ciruit and where the German Julian Hanses, the Swiss Fabio Scherer and the Brazilian Fabio Drugovic had a great success.
Juri Visps from Estonia and Marcus Armstrong from New Zealand gained great places in this event and next week they partecipate for success in Hockenheim circuit.
