L'idillio di Scandola-D'Amore al Rally di Monza 2020
Monza Rally was a whirlwind of emotions. The final chapter of WRC 3 FIA World Rally Championship 2020 was a kaleidoscope of lights and shadows. Record chronometric performances alternated with frustrating electronic issues. After the Rally of Sardegna (click here for the race review) this was the second race disputed in Italy due to Covid pandemic situation.
The highlight of Umberto Scandola and his navigator Guido D'Amore was during Stage 11 on Saturday afternoon when they scored the best overall timing of the rally in the 11,09 km of Gerosa (BG) leaving even Toyota world champion Sébastien Ogier driving a WRC Plus behind. "I found myself in the right place with good wheels and a good car asset" - says Scandola afterwards.
It was 2008 (12 seasons ago!) the last time that an Italian Driver scored the best overall time in a WRC stage. It was a great satisfaction for the Italian rally driver that celebrated his 36th birthday exactly that day. The team had double reasons to celebrate.
