TIME FOR THE BIG ONE IN SARDINIA

 

 

ALGHERO, JUNE 13 2019 
For Italian rally talent Mattia Vita, Rally Italia Sardegna this weekend is the big one. Not only is it his home round of the World Rally Championship, but it also counts for double points on the Italian Junior Rally Championship, which Mattia is contesting this year in a Ford Fiesta R2T.

The prize for winning the Italian title is a scholarship towards the Junior WRC next year, which is competing in Sardinia this weekend as well. As a result, this is a perfect opportunity for Mattia to compare his speed against those who regularly compete in the category. The Junior WRC is an established path towards the very top of international rallying: previous winners include Sebastien Loeb and Sebastien Ogier.

THE RALLY
Rally Italia Sardegna, which has been Italy’s round of the World Rally Championship since 2004, is all about dust and gravel. Based in the seaside town of Alghero to the north of the island, the stages are some of the toughest in the world, with a soft and sandy surface that covers a hard base. One of the highlights of the rally is Micky’s Jump: a spectacular jump that is a regular fan favourite. Just getting to the finish of the rally is an achievement, as it’s very hard to judge the right pace.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP SITUATION
Mattia is currently third in the Italian Junior Championship standings, but the situation could evolve rapidly over the weekend as Sardinia counts for double points, with three rounds remaining afterwards. He’s competing as part of ACI Team Italia: Italy’s national rally team, denoting the country’s most promising talent, co-driven by Massimiliano Bosi.

THE SCHEDULE
The rally gets underway tonight (Thursday) at 4pm from Alghero, with the first spectator super special stage. There’s an early start on Friday, before the rally concludes on Sunday after a total of 19 special stages and 310 competitive kilometres, making this the longest event that Mattia has driven.

MATTIA SAYS
“Without a doubt this is the highlight of the season for me, as I get to compete on my home round of the World Rally Championship on the same stages as the best drivers in the world. This weekend will also be really useful for me to assess my pace – as the regular Junior WRC drivers are also competing, so I can directly compare my times to what they are doing. The Junior WRC is where I want to be next year, so this is really useful information.

“The start of my season has gone quite well, so I’m feeling confident, but I’m fully expecting Sardinia to be the toughest event I have ever driven. The shakedown this morning showed us what to expect: rough roads, hot temperatures and massive competition. This is definitely a rally where you have to drive intelligently, especially with our road position behind the World Rally Cars. The roads are likely to be rough and rutted, so it’s going to be vital to look after the car. Our plan for the rally is to do what we’ve always done: find our pace, stay consistent, and hopefully pick up the points that we need at the end.”

DID YOU KNOW?
Rally Sardinia is one of the most popular events on the World Rally Championship calendar. Last year it scored first in the WRC rankings in terms of worldwide transmission, reaching 1515 hours. It’s a tradition for the event winner to dive into the port of Alghero after the finish on Sunday lunchtime: a refreshing cool-down from the 30-degree ambient temperatures!

ABOUT MATTIA
Mattia Vita began his motorsport career in karting with success in his native Italy and in Europe. He went on to race single-seaters in Formula 3 before making the switch to rallying, where both his father and mother have competed in the past. Last year, he finished just off the podium in his first international season: ERC Junior U27. For this year, he’s competing as part of ACI Team Italia in Italy and abroad, with the aim of contesting the Junior WRC in 2020.

NEW CO-DRIVER ON BOARD AS SESKS 🇱🇻 PREPARES FOR SECOND ERC JUNIOR PRIZE DRIVE 🇮🇹🌎

NEW CO-DRIVER ON BOARD AS SESKS 🇱🇻 PREPARES FOR SECOND ERC JUNIOR PRIZE DRIVE 🇮🇹🌎

Mārtiņš Sesks is gearing up for his second prize drive in the FIA European Rally Championship.

Latvian teenager Sesks won two ERC starts in a Motorsport Italia-run ŠKODA Fabia R5 for claiming the Pirelli-supported ERC3 Junior title in 2018.

After finishing a fine third overall and second in ERC1 Junior on his R5 debut on the gravel-based Rally Liepāja in late May, Sesks is preparing to tackle his first asphalt event in a top-of-the-range R5.

Ahead of next week’s Rally di Roma Capitale, Sesks, who will compete under the LMT Autosporta Akadēmija banner, said: “There is everything on this rally from nice curvy roads to small roads that in a road car it’s not possible to drive it through normally and we are flying through at more than 140kph. It’s really extreme but that means you need to keep focused all the time on your pacenotes and your driving needs to be perfect.

“I haven’t done much Tarmac this year but I hope to be back in shape after my test on Tuesday. I am comfortable on Tarmac and I hope I will be in the R5 for the first time.”

Rally di Roma Capitale is the first event where Sesks will count on new co-driver Uldis Briedis, who has replaced Krišjānis Caune.

“My coach will be my co-driver and we will see how it goes for us,” said Sesks, the ERC3 Junior winner in Rome last season. “He taught me the pacenotes I am driving to now so from the pacenotes understanding side there should be no problem because we are thinking equally. I hope it will be good.”

🇬🇧 Our ŠKODA Fabia R5 beast is ready for offical Tuesday test! 😎
And different from FIA Junior WRC , where usually we get Nr.76 😂 We will have Nr.5 🤘

Campedelli chosen to give new Fiesta R5 Evo ERC debut

*Rapid Italian gets M-Sport’s latest challenger for Rally di Roma Capitale *Previous winner has pace to fight for another victory against European elite *Campedelli: “I’m so excited, it’s a big chance that M-Sport gives me”

Simone Campedelli will have the honour of giving M-Sport’s all-new Ford Fiesta R5 its FIA European Rally Championship debut when he lines up for Rally di Roma Capitale from 19-21 July.

Winner of the event in 2017, the Italian competes under the Orange 1 M-Sport Rally Team banner in the Italian championship (CIR). Having won the famous Targa Florio in Sicily back in May in M-Sport’s previous-generation Fiesta R5, Campedelli will use its replacement to chase ERC and CIR points on the asphalt-only Rally di Roma Capitale and will be among the contenders for victory.

“I’m so excited,” said Campedelli, 32. “It’s a big chance and Iam so appreciative that M-Sport gives me this opportunity. We’ve created a good partnership with them, and they really believe in us and they really believe in the Italian market. They are close to me and they trust in me. For example, we could have continued with the older version of the car, but they said ‘no, we are building a new car for you’. I want to say thank you to Malcolm Wilson and Maciej Woda for putting the effort in.”

Campedelli is due to get his first turn behind the wheel of his new Fiesta R5 during a private test on Monday before he takes part in the official test on Tuesday.

“I hope to find immediately the right confidence with the car,” said Campedelli. “From Malcolm’s side he told me straight, ‘Simone, the car is quicker, of that we have no doubt, you must use it, we are confident you can make a strong performance and we would really like to push you in the new car.’”

Of his target for Italy’s ERC counter, Campedelli said: “It’s a rally I like, and we can be quick, but we also have a new car and we must remember this. For sure it will be a hard challenge against the ERC drivers who can make an impressive pace with a really low knowledge of the stages and know how to fight in all kinds of conditions. But we also have to take care about the Italian championship.”

Based on the Ford Fiesta ST-Line and powered by an EcoBoost engine, M‑Sport has worked closely with the Ford Motor Company to “ensure the new Fiesta R5 provides a big step forward in terms of pace and performance”, according to the car builder.

Meanwhile, Rally di Roma Capitale, which signals the start of the second half of the 2019 ERC season, begins at the famousCastel Sant’Angelo in central Rome at 19h00 CET on Friday 19 July with the finish scheduled for Rome’s seaside retreat of Ostia on the evening of Sunday 21 July. In between are 16 stages over a competitive distance of 203.40 kilometres.

Spectacle and great figures for the 7th Rally di Roma Capitale

A high-level rally with varied and complete stages. An unrivalled setting from Castel Sant’ Angelo to Ostia Lido with the closing show of the “Arena ACI Roma”. Rendina: “A strong team that wants to grow thanks to ACI and the Municipality. Maurizio Battista Testimonial of the event

Rome July 10th, 2019. The details of the 7th Rally di Roma Capitale, the event that will be the 5th round of the European Championship and Italian Rally from July 17th to 21st , have been unveiled. This sporting event will involve the whole area of the Capital but also the province of Frosinone and Ostia. Promotion of the territory through the spectacle of rally that is close to people. Everyone will be involved either along the roads of the rally or through the intense programme of TV, radio and web coverages to broadcast every moment of the electrifying weekend in the Rome area. This is the essence of the event devised by 2014 Rally Production World Champion Max Rendina, that will have its headquarters in Fiuggi, will start from the heart of Rome, Castel Sant’Angelo before moving to the stages that will take place in Ciociaria for two motorsport days that will reach their conclusion with the final show of the “Arena ACI Roma” that is a double challenge on the stage in front of the sea.
Sixteen stages for a total of 203,40 competitive Km on a total liason of 849,72 Km split in two days: day one will feature some very technical stages on twisty roads, while technical perfection will make the difference in the more flowing stages on day two.

Max Rendina Motorsport Italia: -“Thank you. This year we organized an even bigger event and, thanks to the partnership with the Municipality and ACI Rome, we could organize a better stage in Ostia. A staff of more than 1000 people plus 200 volunteers will work hard on this rally. This is the second most important race in Italy and we want to grow. In Ostia, a big event in the event will involve a test drive for manufacturers, karting races with guest stars like Giancarlo Fisichella and Emanuele Pirro. The exhibition of WRC+ cars from the WRC rally scenes and the Police’s Lamborghini, our testimonial and a lot of exciting appointments are on the menu of the event. We devoted our full commitment to this rally as always and we hope it will be appreciated”-.

Angelo Sticchi Damiani, Automobile Club d’Italia’s President: -“The Rally di Roma Capitale won a tough challenge especially due to the difficulties connected to the size of a city like Rome. The success of Rendina lays in the big presence. As the Federation, we try to showcase our talents in these International events. We brought back sports among the main aspects of ACI, the Federation that has a long and prestigious history and that nowadays organizes directly a Formula 1 Grand Prix and a World Rally Championship’s round. The Federation ACI shows its value also through the important confirmations obtained internationally. Automobile Club d’Italia got to the heart of the sport, but its activity goes beyond sport. This has to be clear. A big thanks to events like the Rally organized by Motorsport Italia that brought an international event to our Capital”-.

Marco Rogano ACI Sport SpA General Director: -“The Rally di Roma Capitale, an event devised by the farsighted idea of Rendina, grew and is an important appointment. It involves people and takes place among the people that can enjoy this spectacle from a close perspective. A European Championship is an important event and this is confirmed by the figures shown, the high-level staff and its complexity. Such an efficient organization deserves to be highly successful”-.

Daniele Settimo Rally Commission President:-“The rally di Roma Capitale is a big event and the European setting raises further its profile. I personally know that stages and, due to their high technical level, they could be part of a World Rally Championship round. Our Federation is proud of this organization”-.

We are great at this and our roads are already set up thanks to our associations. Important interventions to increase safety and spectacle have taken place. We are very fond of our rally and kept its name within the important context of the Rally di Roma Capitale. We are ready to welcome all the fans that will join us here”-.

Giuliana Di Pillo President of the X Municipio Roma: “This is a public event. That is how we defined the Rally di Roma Capitale, an event that brings a lot of people to our territory. The Arena ACI Roma will be in Ostia’s center among the people. We wished this strongly and I personally fought for this event in our city. I am happy because this is going the first time of this new configuration. We are waiting for a lot of people. Ostia is ready to welcome all the rally fans”-.

Gianluca Marotta, Race Director: “Spectacle and promotion of the territory are two important aspects combined in the organization by Motorsport Italia. Safety will be paramount and several staffs like technicians, race directors and people working at the event devoted the highest care to this aspect. This is quite a complex machinery featuring high numbers.
