Caldani wins the 23rd edition of the “Il Ciocchetto” Rally!
Nicola Caldani and his Ford Fiesta R5 wins the 23rd edition of the “Il Ciocchetto” Rally.
The pilot from the Versilia coast, paired with Roberto Mometti, is on his third win after the 2000 and 2009 editions, with a high-profile race in which he took the lead with a strong attack from the third special stage on.
The race, which took place on December 20th and 21st in the Il Ciocco Tenuta e Parco with 14 timed sections, registered more than 2000 attendees between visitors and field experts, and this year, more than ever, recalled Maurizio “Icio” Perissinot.
In fact, 10 years have passed since his untimely death: Perissinot was one of the greatest co-drivers of Italian rallies in the early nineties, as well as
the creator of the “Ciocchetto Rally”. An unprecedented special stage,
that took the name “Icio”, was dedicated to him on Saturday night and
was repeated two times.
The two places of honor went to Paolo Ciuffi (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution) and Rudy Michelini (Citroen DS3 R5).
In fourth place, master of the house, Andrea Marcucci (Peugeot 207 S2000).
