Monza Rally Show 2016: the duel between Valentino Rossi and Dani Sordo is repeated
Already we warned a few days ago that Dani Sordo had many options would be the driver behind the wheel of the Hyundai i20 WRC 2016 next Monza Rally Show, something that has been officially confirmed today with the spectacular entry list. A list this time It stands out more for the machinery by the names, although we are still finding it a well-known name among the Italian motorsport as Piero Longhi, Alessandro Perico, Corrado Fontana, Paolo Andreucci, Luca Rossetti, Kalle Rovanpera or the essential, Valentino Rossi.
He astro World Moto GP is one of the most accumulated shares (Thirteen) in the race held in the temple of speed, using sections of the old layout, the new track (especially variants), a section of the oval and finish straight, including the pit area in which is usually performed the final test, Master Show. Rossi will leave the asphalt transalpine route to try to get his fifth victory at the Monza Rally Show, which would allow him to head the list of historical winners test, as it would be his fifth win, for the four of Rinaldo Capello with which currently shares the record.
Il Dottore is already used to play with victories coming World Rally Championship drivers or even from endurance racing, usually being on the podium (takes 11 of 13 possible). This year it will be up to face the two-time winner with Citroen and MINI, Dani Sordo, the pilot elected by Hyundai (in 2015 participated Neuville) to opt to victory in what promises to be a weekend very special week, precisely one of the key countries in Europe for Koreans. Proof of this is that Sordo will not be the only official i20 competing this weekend, joining R5 of Andolfi and WRC old version of Fontana, both owned by HMI.
If this were not enough, Thursday will be presented the new i20 WRC 2017, this time, the final version with the colors of competition. If someone thinks I'm exaggerating to say that Italy is one of the strategic strongholds of Hyundai, note that only one week after the Monza Rally Show Bettega Memorial will be held, under the Bologna Motor Show, which will also participate officially Hyundai i20 WRC in 2016 in the hands of Neuville against Elfyn Evans, Alessandro Bettega (son of Attilio) and also present in Monza, Andreucci (which take a Citroen DS3 WRC) and Andolfi. It must remain vigilant beyond the Alps with this beautiful series of shows.
