There are more arrows in the bow of Rovigo Corse in view of the sixth act of the Italian Historic Car Regularity Championship, scheduled for Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May at the twenty-first edition of Campagne e Cascine.
The appointment that will sanction the turning point of the tricolour season will see the Polesine team take the field with a fierce trident, led by president Diego Verza.
The patron, competing with the Autobianchi A112 Abarth group 2 shared with the rediscovered Sandro Buranello, will aim to defend second place in the RC5 grouping and among the 1,000s.
"I raced here almost thirty years ago," says Verza (president of Rovigo Corse), "when the event was called Circuito di Cremona. It will be a difficult race, in the middle of Cremona's farmsteads, with lots of gravel and few references. Navigation will not be easy and with very short times, mistakes will be around the corner. On a technical level it will be the most demanding of the CIREAS."
Coming back from a Valli Biellesi Classica as absolute protagonist, signing the power stage, Alessandro Timacchi will aim at nibbling useful points to the train in the lead, with the intent of hooking the podium of the RC5 grouping and of the class millesei, starting from the current provisional fifth.
The Occhiobello driver will be at the start with Boris Santin and his usual Fiat 127 Sport.
"We will try to improve our passes on the tube," says Timacchi, "from a Biella that we closed with an average of under five hundredths. There will be almost one hundred tests to face, divided between Saturday and Sunday, but we are ready for the challenge because we want to climb up from fifth place in the championship standings. Full steam ahead, we are ready for this new challenge."
After having joined the president in the Biella trip, in the role of navigator, for Stefano Galuppi it is finally time to take the wheel again.
The driver from Rovigo will be at the starting line in an Alfa Romeo Giulia GT 1300 Junior, paired with Enrico Coan, with a great desire to live a fun-filled experience.
"This is the second race of the tricolour I am running this year," says Galuppi, "and in the previous one we won the 1300 class, but the classification was not good due to a synchronisation problem with the instrument. This will be my debut at the Campagne e Cascine, thanks to president Diego Verza and his wife Michela. A demanding race, one hundred timed trials and a part at dusk that will allow us to discover new territories. I expect a good result and the joy of doing what I am passionate about, sharing it with friends and our partners".
About two hundred and twenty kilometres in total, in the heart of the Cremona countryside, are ready to await the three standard-bearers of the Rovigo team between next Saturday and Sunday.
