An elating 17th Rally del Piemonte for Gianluca Quaderno and Lara Zanolo

1st place in their class and 12th absolute place in the first round of the Rally CRZ Championship for the Speed Fire Racing’s ambassadors on their Renault Clio R3, who came just behind the more performing R5.

Mission accomplished at the 17th edition of the Rally held in Alba, in the Piedmont region, for Gianluca Quaderno and Lara Zanolo. Racing on the Renault Clio serviced by Autofficina P.R.T, the team repeated last year’s win on the Alba roads.

The Valsesia crew immediately proved to be really at ease on the difficult special stages in the Langhe region, securing an exhilarating success on tricky terrain that made the race very challenging. This great result allowed the crew to score many points in the CRZ Championship and Michelin Italia trophy ranking.

The whole team played a vital role, setting up a top-performing car, fully restored against last season.

We are very happy with our performance. We were extremely fast from the very start. Unfortunately, due to a mistake on the 6th special stage we lost more than 30 seconds, which prevented us from competing for the Top Ten. Everything went great, anyway – the car was perfect and the team was really precious and supported us outstandingly. The focus is now on the next Rally, Il Grappolo, scheduled for May 20 and 21, says Gianluca Quaderno.
