Just a few days to the first two rounds of the Tricolore
The first two rounds of the Italian Rallycross Championship ACI Sport powered by Toyo Tires, scheduled on 29/30 August in Maggiora Offroad Arena, are approaching in great steps and a starting list is being defined that promises a great show.
In addition to the already confirmed names, there are two more drivers to follow: the first one is Francesco Garosci, a young talent at his absolute debut in Rallycross (he will be at the start with a Mitsubishi Lancer of the Marcauto Team) but already with a quite varied background. The second is another very welcome return, Davide Negri, who, for the first time in Rallycross, will drive the Subaru Impreza of his son Alessandro.
Another transalpine driver will be at the start in Maggiora Offroad Arena: Jimmy Terperau will also race on Saturday and Sunday with his Citroen C2 with which he is a protagonist in France and in the Euro RX.
As usual, the most numerous and fierce category will be the Kartcross one: as already announced the reigning Champion Marcello Gallo will be racing with a LifeLive Kart of the Neuville brothers, but there will be many opponents with whom the driver from Novara will have to measure himself, starting from the former champions Maicol Giacomotti, from this year with Planet Kart Cross - which will supply its karts to a good number of drivers - and Gabriele Zoppetti, with his Speedcar Extreme.
The 2019 Vice-Champion Simone Firenze has changed his vehicle and will compete with a Semog Bravo Sport of the GrisuRallySport team, the team of patron Bomberos, aka Gianni Ausonia, who will be the protagonist with no less than nine cars, including Bomberos' own Kart.
Also GMN, the team of the brothers Nicolò and Matteo Grieco, will be present in force and will provide, among other things, the vehicle to the only woman in the race, the rookie Cristina Tadone. Luciano Visintin, with his Yacar, will come back to Maggiora after three years of absence, waiting for the realization of his Super1600 project.
There is anticipation to see what Riccardo Canzian, after his spectacular debut in 2019, can do with his Speedcar Extrem, and the youngest of the lot, Belgium's Victor Vrankx, only 14 years old (!), who replaced the engine of his Planet Kart Cross in order to be at the start of the two August Rounds.
Doors Closed, great show on TV
The Rounds of 29/30 August will be closed-door, but will enjoy full TV coverage, starting from Q in the morning, on the event's social channels.
Broadcasting times will be announced shortly on the Championship's social channels.
