Pragiarolo in Reverse conformation will host Round 6 of the Tricolour Rallycross Championship
A season finale without respite for the ACI Sport Italian Rallycross Championship; the cars, the overalls, the clothes and also the drivers and the organising staff have not yet completely dried out after the very wet Round 5, and it is already time to think about the grand finale, Round 6.
The final act of the Tricolore RX will be on1 and 2 November at Maggiora Offroad Arena in Reverse conformation, and not, as initially planned, at Cervesina (PV). Riccardo Fasola, president of Sport Club Maggiora, promoter of the Championship, says: "The right conditions were not created to run at Tazio Nuvolari, hence the decision to go back to Maggiora; after all," Fasola concludes, "it is right that the final round should take place at the Pragiarolo track, where the Championship was born and grew up.
The final round will be Coefficient 2 and promises to be very close. The two days will end with a sparkling prize-giving ceremony in Maggiora on Saturday evening.
Let's take a look at the situation in the three categories that have characterised the whole season
Gigi Galli and his Kia Rio are already Italian Champions, but for sure the driver from Livigno will be able to find the right concentration for the last goal of the season: the "perfect season", that is to say achieving six victories out of six rounds.
Franco Mollo (Ford Fiesta) should be able to easily defend his second position, a prestigious result, as Mollo himself often says, considering the winner.
In spite of a very complicated second half of the championship, with many mishaps and retirements, Marco Valazza (Ford Fiesta) is still leading the classification with 116,5 points. Matteo Valazza (Citroen Saxo) has been getting closer and closer, and now he is at 105,5 points; so it will be interesting the fight between uncle (Marco) and nephew (Matteo) to conquer the tricolour.
It is always him, Marcello Gallo (Kep 2 Suzuki), the leader of this category that once again promises to be the most spectacular: 204.5 points of the pilot Gozzano, against 180 Maicol Giacomotti (Kart Cross Suzuki K8), which despite the 12th place last Sunday has maintained the second position, and 179 of an arrembante Simone Florence (Planet Kart Cross K3), which still thinks the paltry 8 points collected in Adria. More detached Michele Bormolini, at 142, and the defending champion Gabriele Zoppetti, at 139.
