A CHALLENGING WEEKEND BUT MORE POINTS FOR MATTIA VITA

 

 

Future Italian rally star Mattia Vita finished third on the Rally of Friuli Venezia Giulia last weekend: the latest round of the Italian Junior Rally Championship, which he aims to use as a springboard to the international Junior WRC next year.

This leaves him third in the championship heading into the final round in November, still with a chance of lifting the title. And with this usual determination, he’s focussed on giving it everything from here on.

Mattia and his co-driver Massimiliano Bosi were hindered last weekend by having to miss the previous round, the Rally di Roma Capitale, through no fault of their own. This meant that Mattia had been out of the car for more than two months by the time he got to the latest round based in Udine, with no pre-event testing either. The lack of seat time showed on the Rally of Friuli Venezia Giulia – which he was competing on for the very first time.

On the fast asphalt roads, 22-year-old Mattia gradually made progress but he felt that there was plenty more still to come by the time the 11 stages and 153.85 competitive kilometres were over. Like all the other competitors, Mattia was driving a turbocharged Ford Fiesta R2T: the same car used on the Junior WRC, where the world champions of tomorrow are made.

“Of course I enjoyed the rally and my first time on these roads but it was a little bit frustrating as I know I could have done so much better with more time in the car,” said Mattia. “We still managed to salvage third place, so it’s another podium, but I wish we could be starting the rally now, as I know then that I would be in a position to really challenge for the win!”

Nonetheless, it was another faultless performance and solid points haul for Mattia – underlining the consistency he has shown all season – which keeps him in the title fight that he may well be leading now, were it not for his forfeit in Rome.

“That’s not made things easy: I don’t like to think of what could have been possible had we been able to score points in Rome as well!” said Mattia. “But I’m the sort of person who finds adversity to be a strong motivation, and this year has really shown me what we are capable of. Thanks to Max and all our sponsors I know that we have the potential to fight for the title – and that’s what I’ll be doing now and in the future. Maximum attack!”

The Tuscan Rewind, the final round of the Italian Junior Rally Championship, takes place on gravel close to Mattia’s home at the end of November. It’s a celebration of the heritage of the sport using stages similar to those formerly seen on the Sanremo Rally in its heyday. Mattia is a second-generation rally driver, as his father Gianluca was also a competitor on the Italian Rally Championship. But now Mattia aims to take the next step onto the international stage.

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.

Glorious sunshine and a dry track greeted team GCK on the first race day of round 9 of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at the picturesque track in Riga, Latvia, which ended with Rokas Baciuska in P1 and Anton Marklund in P3 overnight. Meanwhile, Guerlain Chicherit dropped to P7 overnight following a spectacular Q1 performance, and GCK Academy’s Cyril Raymond finished the day in P9 with team mate Guillaume De Ridder in P14.

ROKAS BACIUSKA – P1 O/A Q1 P1; Q2 P4
A big fight with lots of contact into turn 1 of Q1 saw Baciuska in P3; he jokered straight away and charged ahead, overtaking one after another to win the race, posting the fastest time of the day.

Q1 P5; Q2 P2 Q1 saw Anton fight into P2 into
turn 1, a position he defended until he crossed the finish line in 2nd, and 5th overall. Q2 saw Anton race around the outside into P1 into turn 1, racing cleanly to joker in the last lap and taking the chequered flag.
“I’m really happy with today’s performance but know that we still have room to push for even more tomorrow. The team is working hard on all the technical feedback, so let’s see what
tomorrow brings

Q1 P4; Q2 P13
Q1 saw Guerlain race ahead to take the lead into turn 1 following a great start; he jokered in the last lap and finished in 1st with the 4th fastest time overall.
Q2 saw Chicherit in 4th into turn 1, where he raced cleanly until a mistake in lap 3 saw him go too wide; he jokered in the last lap to finish the race in 5th.

Q2 saw Rokas race into P2 into turn 1. He jokered
in lap 1, coming out in 4th. Flying around Bakkerud as the Swede exited the joker, he finished the race in P2.
“There is no way I’d be P1 overnight without the fans here – being so close to home and having so many supporting and rooting for me makes a huge difference and really is pushing me on. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s race action.”

GUERLAIN CHICHERIT – P7 O/A

Q1 P4; Q2 P13
Q1 saw Guerlain race ahead to take the lead into turn following a great start; he jokered in the last lap and finished in 1st with the 4th fastest time overall.
Q2 saw Chicherit in 4th into turn 1, where he raced cleanly until a mistake in lap 3 saw him go too wide; he jokered in the last lap to finish the race in 5th.

“We’ve put down some good lap times today and the pace in general is good although we have some changes to make overnight to optimise further. The mistake in Q2 is really frustrating but I just have to drop it and move on to prepare for tomorrow.”

IMG GIVES A GLIMPSE OF THE ELECTRIC FUTURE AS PROJEKT E RACECAR IS UNVEILED

 

 

Riga, Latvia – (Friday, September 13, 2019) – IMG ushered in a bold new era in motorsport with the global reveal of the all-electric racecar which will compete in the electric development series, codenamed Projekt E, in 2020.

The official unveiling of the Projekt E racecar, a collaboration between IMG and Austrian company STARD (Stohl Advanced Research and Development), took place at the Riga Motor Museum in Latvia.

VIP guests, World RX and Euro RX teams and drivers gathered for the event to see first-hand the car which will feature in the innovative electric series.

Projekt E will showcase electric-powered cars on the same event schedule as traditional World RX Supercars at selected European rounds of the championship in 2020.

Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of IMG Motorsports, and STARD’s Manfred Stohl had the honours of taking the wraps off the car. “Today we reached a tipping point in the future of production-based motorsport with the unveiling of the racecar which will feature in the electric support series in 2020, codenamed Projekt E,” Bellamy said.

“Electrification in the automotive industry is moving at a rapid pace and we are extremely proud to be first movers in the electric motorsport space for production vehicles.

“The car we revealed today is the result of months of collaboration with our technical partner, STARD. That work has centred on developing electric technologies, charging and safety systems for the Projekt E racecars.

“This collaboration is further proof of IMG’s commitment to future mobility and relevant technologies in the rugged rallycross environment.

“The car looks striking on the outside, but under the skin is what really matters. Rallycross is known for rapid launches and fast-paced, wheel-to-wheel action. The advanced technology which powers the Projekt E racecar will produce torque levels we have never seen in rallycross before.

“It’s an exciting time for the sport of rallycross. Our aim with the new-look race weekend format for 2020, with the inclusion of Projekt E, is to allow rallycross fans to enjoy the traditional internal combustion engines – and be given a flavour of the future at the same time.”

Projekt E will use STARD’s “REVelution” EV powertrain systems which will produce up to 450kW (613bhp) combined power, 1100Nm of instantaneous torque and produce a top speed of 240km/h.

The plan is to use current chassis technology such as the 2019 STARD World RX Ford Fiesta. The concept allows for the conversion of current cars or new builds to current chassis regulations using the REVelution drivetrain.

And, in a first for motorsport, Projekt E will enable the use of road car electric motors in racecars.

“We are delighted to be partnering with IMG on this innovative project which will change the technical landscape in motorsport and rallycross in particular,” Manfred Strohl, President of Stohl Group, said.

“There is a lot of activity in hybrid and electric racing at present but what sets Projekt E apart is the fact that the Projekt E race car can utilise road car electric motors.

“The performance of the racecar will be impressive when you consider that in terms of torque, the power unit is capable of 0-90% in about 32 milliseconds. The motors rotate at up to 14,000rpm. Projekt E will add a whole new, innovative dimension to rallycross in 2020.”

The aim of Projekt E is to evaluate electric racecars in a World RX environment in accordance with the roadmap for electrification of the FIA World Rallycross Championship which was has been ratified by the FIA World Motorsport Council.
