Round 2 closed at Maggiora Offroad Arena

Still a lot of heat at the Maggiora Offroad Arena for the closing day of Round 2 of the Italian Rallycross Championship: show however ensured by the drivers who faced off openly both during the Q and the finals.


A perfect day: it was Marcello Gallo 's (Kep 2 Suzuki) who, after winning all the Qs of the day, also won the final with a time of 4'42"294 over the 6 laps foreseen. Second position for an excellent Michele Bormolini (Planet Kart Cross K3) in 4'47"956, while third was the winner of Round 1, El Diablo Simone Firenze (Planet Kart Cross K3), in 4'50"614.


Side By Side

Final twist in the category at the debut in the Italian Rallycross Championship and that saw all riders competing on Yamaha YXZ 1000R: after dominating in Qualifying and Final, Amerigo Ventura was penalized for joker lap twice and was thus classified in third position. The victory went to Mauro Vagaggini in 5'29 "875, ahead of Alessandro Tinaburri (5'32 "021).


Again him, Marco Valazza; the driver of the Ford Fiesta ex-Dennis Remans won also the Round 2, with the time of 5'10"980, showing once again all his will to win again the championship and his Ford Fiesta protagonist: second a Marco Battelli (Citroen C2, 517"555) that race after race shows to be more and more at his ease in rallycross. Third is the young Daniele Delfino, who, at his absolute debut, gets a great third place with a time of 5'25"685.


In spite of some minor problems, in particular with the handbrake, Gigi Galli (Kia Rio) certainly enjoyed himself at Maggiora Reverse, which is also demonstrated by his new overall lap record: 44"037.

Galli won the final in 4'55"957, preceding a very positive Nicola Agrelli (Mitsubishi Lancer), second in 5'06"875. Unfortunately during the day many of the protagonists of this category were lost: Natale Casalboni (Mitsubishi Colt) was classified in 3rd position. To report that Luca Cortellazzi, excellent his debut, has been protagonist in Q3 of a spectacular accident: fortunately no consequences for the young driver, but his Round has stopped there.

Next event: Rallycross by night!

Round 3 will take place at the specially prepared Adria International Raceway, on 2/3 August: it will be a special event for two reasons: it will be the first Round outside the Maggiora Offroad Arena and it will be the first Round to take place at night!
