The town is where, each year, the Trofeo Bandini is run. The event also sees Formula 1 drivers line up and at one Robert Kubica prizegiving ceremony was Nicolò - picking up an award for winning Formula Ford 1600 (2007). He has also appeared in Formula 3 (2008 and 2009) and in Superstar 2009.
"I had never driven a Maserati before and I am pleased to be taking part in this championship because it gives me the chance to drive a car I really like. I especially noticed how well balanced it was. I thought I would have a few problems with the braking but I have to eat my words as it was spot on! The GranTurismo MC Trofeo is lots of fun to drive and I hope to do well in this series, one I chose for the visibility it will give. For a young driver like me wanting to get on in his career, it is the very best move".
