The Abarth 124 claimed a memorable one-two-three in Italy over the weekend in the European Rally Championship.
Fabrizio Andolfi Jr got the better of fellow Abarth 124 driver Andrea Nucita to win the FIA RGT category with Andrea Modanesi third after in another Abarth after overnight leader Romain Dumas was delayed on the final day stopping to change a puncture having occupied a top 10 spot in his Porsche 997.
From historic tour to seaside finish for ERC’s Italian return…
Rally di Roma Capitale’s first appearance on the ERC schedule began in spectacular fashion and culminated in a dramatic final stage showdown.
