BATTAGLIN IS SECOND OVERALL AT MONTE DI MALO
Pink (VI), April 05, 2023– Second edition of the Slalom of Monte di Malo and new prestigious prey thanks to an Alessandro Battaglin who, between the goals of the first round valid for the Veneto Trentino + Trophy, made the best of his knowledge of the to which Pinboard of the rally team route, a route of a historical special of the City of Schio Rally.
The red from Marostica got off to a strong start on Sunday at the wheel of his Hyundai i20 R5, a car not exactly suited to bowling, setting the best time.
Although the asphalt began to dry, which favored the return of the prototypes, the rider from the Rosà stable was second overall at the end of the second lap and repeated this on a third lap as well, where he climbed to the second step on the podium .
The second win in a row, in Group A and in Class A>2000, closes the circle.
“A fantastic Sunday” – says Battaglin – “Because if we look at the sum of the times, we would have won the overall victory, but unfortunately that doesn’t work in slalom. We made the difference in the wet, the Rallysta in me comes out when the conditions get tough.”
Sunday morning’s poor grip conditions also rewarded Marco Fanton, who started Group A in a Peugeot 106 fifth wheel, managed by Galiazzo, author of the best time among the A1600, second in Group A and ninth overall, followed by sixth overall the next round, confirms an excellent feeling with the goals from Vicenza.
A third run in line with the previous ones allowed the Vicenza team’s second striker to reach the eighth third of A1600, fourth in Group A and eighth overall.
“We had lots of fun” – says Fanton – “With our 106, which did very well. Thanks to all supporters, because this podium should be shared with everyone.”
A completely different goal, to cancel the negative episode of the last Schio for Filippo Nonnato, who competes with another Peugeot 106 Rallye Group A, provided by Galiazzo.
The third flag bearer started with good pace, third in the A1600 class and fourth in Group A.
A fifth and a fourth completed the personal roadmap, which translated into the final fifth of A1600, sixth in Group A and lone dominance in the U23 class.
“It went well, come on” – says Nonnatus – “Because it was important to get back in the car after the end of the last Schio and find the right self-confidence. The bitterness for the pin I knocked down in the last run remains, otherwise we would be celebrating tenth place overall here.”
If we add up the performances of its three flag-bearers, the Rosatese Club ranks second in the special classification reserved for the stables and proves to be competitive even outside of the rallies.
