THE HYUNDAI WRC DRIVER WILL PERFORM WITH A I20 WRC,
SUNDAY 22 OCTOBER, ALONG “THE LEGEND” STAGE
San Marino Republic. Thierry Neuville will be at Rallylegend. This is the great surprise of the hectic eve of the San Marino event. The Belgian driver of Hyundai Motorsport team, a top driver of the World Championship with the New Generation i20 WRC, wanted to enjoy Rallylegend as a spectator together with a group of friends. Then, while asking for a few passes, he could not resist the temptation to ask for the possibility to drive along a special stage. He got both the approval from the team Hyundai Motorsport, and the immediate willingness of the HMI Italian Rally Team that made available for him a i20 WRC . So Thierry Neuville will be behind the wheel at “The Legend”, on Sunday 22 as well. Together with Sebastien Ogier, that will be present for the Colin Mc Rae Tribute and Kris Meeke, participating in the competition, they will form a fantastic trio, three great top drivers of the 2017 World Rally Championship at Rallylegend.

RALLYLEGEND COMMEMORATES GIUSEPPE VOLTA
Beppe Volta has been an essential personality for the Italian motorsport and rallies in particular, a piece of history, all-round. From his début as a driver and mechanic in the Sixties, then expert test driver but also careful and meticulous engineer and eventually gifted designer. And a great friend of Rallylegend, that he never missed. Last April, in a banal but fatal car accident, Beppe Volta lost his life. And with him and his dynamism we’ve lost many other things he could have shown us at Rallylegend leaving all enthusiasts wide-mouthed as always. Just as when he choose the San Marino event as the international stage to show the first steps of the Lancia ECV1, a charming prototype studied in 1986, but remained until then just a “dummy”. With Miki Biasion at his wheel it took its first kilometres, surrounded by an amazing crowd. Friday 20th October at 4:30 pm at the Rallylegend Arena during a special meeting open to the public we will tell about Beppe Volta together with Biasion, “Lucky” and Tony Fassina,.
