Dmack British Rally Champion Elfyn Evans rounded off his spectacular season in style with overall victory at this weekend’s popular Bettega Memorial Rally at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy. Evans beat Kalle Rovanpera (Ford, running on Pirelli tyres) after fending off competition from World Rally Championship runner-up Thierry Neuville (Hyundai, Michelin) and Alessandro Bettega (Ford, Yokohama) in two days of qualifying heats on the purpose built track. Dmack managing director Dick Cormack said the win was “an important result” for Dmack in growing the brand in Italy.
Italian racers Jarno Trulli and Michela Cerruti will drive the fully-electric Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E car at the Bologna Motor Show.
Ex-Formula 1 driver Trulli and Auto GP race-winner Cerruti both currently compete in the new FIA Formula E Championship as team-mates for Trulli – an outfit owned and managed by the Monaco Grand Prix victor.
