RALLY INTERNAZIONALE A FULL 2015
HMI at the 2nd Rallye Elba Internazionale.
First event of the 2015 International Rally Cup for the firm which manages the Korean WRC entered for Corrado Fontana – Giovanni Agnese.
Predosa (Italy), April 16th, 2015
HMI, Hyundai Italian Team, is at the start line of the 2015 IRC with the i20 WRC. After the first experience in competition at the Rally 1000 Miglia, Corrado Fontana returns to the wheel of a last generation World Rally Car to fight for the title which he has already won four times. The driver from Como, who last weekend enjoyed an intense day of testing with the car, will, as a one-off, be codriven by Giovanni Agnese, with whom in 2013 he conquered in the Rally Valli Cuneesi the victory which gave him his fourth success in the championship.
Corrado Fontana: “We are at the start of the Championship knowing that we can do very well. The test we carried out in recent days has allowed us to adapt the Hyundai both to the characteristics of the “Italian roads” and to the Pirelli tyres. It is clear that during the Elba Rally we will need to work to refine the set-up,
but we have already found a good base. Last year we took a beautiful victory in this Rally… we want to repeat it!”.
