The 24th Valli Cuneesi Rally officially opens the season of the Italian Cup with 120 competitors, in conjunction with the 11th historic Rally of Cuneese.

Our crew, Quaderno -Zanolo, on Renault Clio R3, P.R.T. garage, got a very good start and gained excellent results.

The race consisted of 7 special stages and 3 trials to be repeated, covering a total of 402 kilometres of which 87 timed.

  • Montemale: 10.7 Km stage, to be repeated 3 times
  • Valmala: 20 km stage, to be repeated twice
  • Brondello: 7 km stage, to be repeated twice

The Valli Cuneesi, in addition to awarding the Trophy in memory of Johnny Cornaglia, is also counting towards the “Renault Clio R3 Italia Open” and “Run with Clio N3” trophies

In the Renault R3 Italia Trophy, our crew achieved notable results, obtaining the highest possible score available in a race with a coefficient of 1.2. Very important championship points.

Here are their numbers in the standings:

  • Johnny Cornaglia Memorial winners
  • 1st place in the two-wheel-drive class
  • 1st place in the R3 class
  • 1st place in the Renault Italy Trophy
  • 11th place overall

Not bad for a beginning! The end of 2017 in Monza had left the Quaderno – Zanolo pair with a bad taste in their mouth and this start of the season is what they needed!

A team that looks on the bright side of things and is always able to get back in the game, trying his utmost even under the most challenging conditions. A close-knit, serious, professional team that knows how to give the best: we believe in their commitment and we wish an extraordinary season to Gianluca, Lara and the entire Team!

Indeed, spec-tac-u-lar!
