The Ciocco Rally

There were many reasons why Paolo Andreucci won’t easily forget his victory at Ciocco, but two stand out - firstly, he took the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX to success with Anna Andreussi, irreplaceable in navigation, who was debuting after a change of team that had caused a stir in the Italian rally environment. Even more important was celebrating this important victory in the splendid Piazza Ariostea of his Castelnuovo Garfagnana, where the first time for the final arrival of the Ciocco rally was sealed by an enormous crowd celebrating ‘its’ Paolino.
