All set at Maggiora Offroad Arena

We are almost there! Soon the engines will start and the great adventure of the Italian Rallycross Championship will begin!

Round 1 of the Tricolore RX will take place on Monday 5 April, organised by Sport Club Maggiora, which is also the promoter of the entire championship.

Almost fifty cars have registered for the first round of the Championship, which will start under strict anti-COVID protocols.

STC, a category that promises battle, Castoral permitting

There will be six cars in the Supertouring Cars category competing on Easter Monday in Maggiora: the great ruler of 2020, Czech Roman Castoral, will be at the start, who in his Opel Astra OPC last year won practically every time he took to the track.

Among the drivers who will try to counter the strong Czech driver are Franco "Frenk" Fusi with his Renault Clio, Mattia Nicolini, who after a good debut in 2020 will return with his Citroen AX, and Matteo Valazza, who after his experience in Super1600 will compete in the STC with his Citroen Saxo. Also worth mentioning is the debut of Ettore Barberis from Piedmont, who will compete with a Honda Civic.

Alberto Palestrini, the sole representative of STC+, will also be at the start in his trusty Renault Super 5.
