Preview and Entrylist Cronoscalata Camucia – Cortona 2017

The Italian Historic Hillclimb Championship continues this weekend with the Cronoscalata Camucia – Cortona. Winner of the first round was Uberto Bonucci. As he will be in Austria for the European Championship, there will definately be a new winner. Stefano Peroni is probably the favourite for victory now wih Piero Lottini as outsider. In any case, with 175 drivers entered the competition will be fierce in every class.

Results Cronoscalata Lago – Montefiascone 2017

Uberto Bonucci has won the opening round of the Italian Historic Hillclimb Championship. At the Cronoscalata Lago Montefiascone Bonucci set fastest time of the weekend already in the first race. Even though Stefano Peroni was the quickest in the second round, a better aggregate time means that Bonucci was the winner. Piero Lottini was third quickest overall.

Bonucci was also the the winner of Group 4. Lottini and Walter Marelli completed the podium here. Peroni was by far the quickest driver in group 3. His lead over Massimo Vezzosi was 47 seconds, although it has to be said that Vezzosi’s BMW 2002 cannot be compared to Peroni’s Osella sportscar. Giuliano Palmieri made the best of his powerful De Tomaso Pantera to claim victory in Group 2. Tiberio Nocentini was once again the best driver in Group 1 with his familiar Chevron B19. Only 3 drivers were present in Group 5. Gina Colotto claims victory here.

Results Salita del Costo 2017

The Salita del Costo was a succesful test for Simone Faggioli. In anticipation of the start of the European Hillclimb Championship the multi-champion was present in northern Italy to test new improvements on his famous Norma M20 FC sportscar. He could be satisfied as he took victory with a margin of four seconds over his main rival Christian Merli. Although the Osella pilot switched engines from RPE to Fortech over the winter, it did not seem to change is his relative speed to Faggioli. Of course it is still very early in the season… Paride Macario was third best driver last year, and at Costo that did not change.
Angelo Alessandro Mercuri competed in a Fiat 500 the past few years. His ride for 2017 could not be more different: a Wolf GB08F1! Even though the learning curve was very steep, Mercuri finished fifth overall behind Diego De Gasperi. Certainly a promising start of the year.
Mauro Soretti was the best touringcar driver. With his Subaru Impreza he remained ahead of Marco Sbrollini and the powerful Ferraris of Luca Gaetani and Roberto Ragazzi.

Preview, Timing and Entrylist Salita del Costo 2017

The 10 kilometre long Salita del Costo in northern Italy will open the Italian Hillclimb Cup North this weekend. Among the 150 entrants are some famous drivers who will use the event to test. In fact the top 3 of last year’s European Hillclimb Championship will be present at Costo! Simone Faggioli and Paride Macario never competed at the Costo Hillclimb before. Christian Merli has competed here before in 2004 but that probably does not qualify as track-knowledge. It will be interesting to see who improved the most over the winter.

Preview, Timing and Entrylist Bologna – San Luca 2017

The first hillclimb of the year in Italy is also the shortest and the steepest. The Cronoscalata Bologna – San Luca is competed on the 2 kilometre long road alongside the famous arcade of the monastery of San Luca. Almost 60 drivers are currently entered despite that this event does not count towards any championship. Three singleseaters will be present but no sportscars, although the nature of this track is perhaps better suited to the powerful Porsches.
