Pirelli Scores Triumph in the Memorial Bettega
Italy’s Gigi Galli has once again driven to victory in this years’ WRC rally at the Memorial Bettega, held in conjunction with the Bologna Motor Show. The 2005 winner’s Pirelli-liveried Peugeot 307 won three of the race’s five heats. The Peugeot, riding on Pirelli’s P Zero tyres, also broke the stage record. Chris Atkinson took third place in his Pirelli fitted Subaru.
Also riding on Pirelli tyres was Toscana driver Tobia Cavallini, who also won the Trofeo WRC Italia in his Subaru Impreza WRC and another two successes came Pirelli’s way thanks to Anton Alen in the Subaru Impreza Cup and Tonino Tognana in the Historic Rally Show, driving a Lancia Rally 037.
Rally manager of Pirelli Competizioni, Mario Isola, noted that “The notable qualities demonstrated by the tyres Pirelli fielded at Bologna were able to make the difference against the competition and not only in the WRC segment, but also on Group Ns, which are derived from normal production.”
