The first edition of the Bardolino Classic, a regularity sport race with its centre in Caprino Veronese, valid as the first round of the newly born Coppa Verona Regolarità Sport, promoted by Pro Energy Motorsport, was won by the crew formed by Leonardo Fabbri-Thomas Sartore, promoters of the Progetto Mite team on a Volvo S144. Behind them the Veronese Daniele Carcereri-Federico Danzi, with the Peugeot 205 GTI of the Palladio Historic team. The last step of the podium went to another crew of the Brescia team Progetto Mite, formed by Angelo Tobia Seneci from Brescia and the visually impaired Elisabetta Russo from Bergamo with the Opel Kadett GTE Gr2. Unlucky protagonist of an error of the timekeepers were Andrea Giacoppo -Nicola Randon of Team Bassano on Lancia Fulvia HF 1600. Although they finished second overall as a penalty, the erroneous transcription of a minute's advance at a time control penalised them by 100 points, dropping them to tenth place in the overall standings. Communications from the two men to the competitor's officer to make their case were to no avail. A protest elsewhere is not excluded. The new proposal of Pro Energy Motorsport has been successful with the presence at the Coppa Verona Regolarità Sport of a good and qualified number of entrants. The specific podium is in fact composed of the first three classified also at absolute level. At the foot of the podium Maurizio Colpani-Lorenzo Pastore, with the Porsche 911 Sc 3.0 for the Brescia Corse team, who preceded the Venetian couple in the car and in life Ezio Franchini-Gabriella Coato with the Peugeot 205 GTI and the colours of Palladio Historic.

Just out of the ten Davide Sartoris with the Peugeot 205 Rallye for the colours of the team HRT Corse. "Congratulations to the winner Fabbri and to the very good Carcereri-Danzi and Seneci-Russo, says the president of Pro Energy Motorsport Emanuele Bosco. What a pity for Giacoppo-Randon, who however will surely be back in the top ranks of the classification. Of course, a praise to all the other classified who have honored with their participation the first race of the Coppa Verona Regolarità Sport".
