The nineteenth edition of Campagne e Cascine, a race organised by Scuderia 3T from Cremona, the ninth round of the Acisport Italian Vintage Car Regularity Championship, did not fail to live up to expectations.
80 crews competed in the 65 time trials along a 166 km route that, as per tradition, proved challenging for both drivers and navigators.
Guido Barcella and Ombretta Ghidotti took the overall victory in their 1938 Fiat 508C, beating championship leaders Alberto and Giuseppe Scapolo, also in a Fiat 508C, by just five penalties.
Another Fiat 508C occupied the third step of the podium: it was the one driven by Edoardo Bellini and Roberto Tiberti who ended their effort only 12 penalties behind the winners.
Federica Bignetti won the ninth round of the exciting challenge for the women's title 2021, bringing her back to a tie with Gabriella Scarioni, at the start in Cremona on the usual 1982 Austin Mini HLE, driven by Ornella Pietropaolo.
Also among the Under 30 is a challenge for the title, with Alfonso Tumbarello that thanks to the points collected in the Cremona campaign, on board of an A112, shared with Vito Cartafalsa, brings himself to only 8 points from the leader of the ranking Roberto Paradisi who did not show up at the start of the race.
Scuderia Nettuno, leading among the teams for only 79 penalties, evens the score with Classic Team, warming up again the season finale of the Italian Team Championship.
