Excellent start for Gianluca Quaderno and Lara Zanolo at the 33rd edition of Rally della Lana in Biella.
First after lockdown race in Northern Italy won, without public, by Andrea Crugnola and Pietro Elia Ometto on a Citroën C3.
A total of 124 cars at the start battled on Rosazza, Tracciolino and Curino difficult special stages.
The team from Grignasco on a Renault New Clio R3C started the current season in the best possible way, winning their class and getting at 14th place in the overall ranking.
They started immediately very fast on Saturday first special stage, scoring great times on almost all the stages during both racing days.
Very good the feeling with the setting changes during the race, to be used also for the next and tougher Rally di Alba scheduled at the beginning of August.
It is a strange and difficult situation for everybody: pilots, navigators, organizers. We hope the choice of racing with no public on the special stages will be soon discarded. We fully understand post-Covid rules and we sure do not minimize the security matter.
Seeing so many rallies fans along the transfer legs was so important to us, showing the big passion gravitating around our Sport.
Biella, 11 – 12 July 2020
