Starting at Imola, we would like to provide you with an unusual view of the Trofeo Maserati. Our intention is to let explore each circuit through the lenses of the official championship photographers, the GrimFoto agency.
There are drivers who compete just for the love of doing it. They are not concerned about the car they drive or the surface. Manuel Villa is one such driver. Born in Albenga and having started out in karts, he later moved on to the Fiat 500, where he placed second in the Trofeo, and then claimed the Italian Rally Championship at the wheel of a Lancia Delta Integrale. He has rallying in his heart, soul and in his feet. It is part of him. We met Villa at the end of a qualifying session conditioned by heavy rain, one that he placed fifth in.
For Andrea Bertolini Imola is almost like a home circuit.
Confirmation arrived on the eve of round one: Hungary will host the third stage of the championship, substituting Morocco.
