Mattia out to conquer home roads in Rom
e


Up-and-coming Italian driver Mattia Vita resumes his European Rally Championship campaign on home ground this week when he takes part in Rally di Roma Capitale: round three of the ERC Junior U27 season.



The rally



Rally di Roma Capitale is based on the outskirts of the Italian capital and begins with a parade through the city centre and a spectacular spectator stage around the Palazzio della Civiltà del Lavoro.



 That is followed by two days of asphalt stages to the east and south east. Mattia contested the event in 2017, finishing third in the Italian junior category.




The championship situation



After finishing sixth on the opening round in the Azores, Mattia was forced out of round two in the Canary Islands on just the second stage due to a fire.



For his home event, he begins a collaboration with a new team, Tagai Racing Technology (TRT) which has experience in the World Rally Championship.



The schedule


The action kicks off with the qualifying stage on Friday morning, before the ceremonial start, parade and spectator stage in Rome later the same day. Saturday consists of seven stages and nearly 100 kilometres of competitive action south east of the capital.



 There are seven more stages on Sunday, mostly held just east of Rome before a seaside super special in Ostia brings the rally to a close.
 



Mattia says



“I am very excited to be racing with a new team, Tagai Racing Technology. It’s a great opportunity for me because TRT has lots of experience, so I’ll try and learn as much as possible from the engineers. I can’t wait to be back racing in my homeland, driving through the streets of Rome in a racing car is one of the best sensations you can have. The rally itself is very difficult.



The temperature will be very hot inside the car, so you have to remain very focuses as you can easily make a mistake. The pace notes also have to be very efficient as the roads can change from very wide and fast to very narrow and tricky in a matter of metres. Unluckily in Canarias we had no opportunity to do more than one stage, so my target is to improve, but rallying is about tackling these difficulties.”



Did you know?



Italian drivers Giandomenico Basso and Luca Rossetti have both won the outright European Rally Championship title on three occasions.


About Mattia



Mattia Vita began his motorsport career in karting with success in his native Italy and in Europe. He went on to race single-seaters in Formula 3 before making the switch to rallying, where both his father and mother have competed in the past.



Mattia spent 2016 and 2017 learning the ropes in the Italian junior championship, finishing sixth in his second season. Now he is competing in ERC Junior U27, driving a Peugeot 208 R2 car with fellow Italian Pietro Elia Ometto as his co-driver.



The series



ERC Junior U27 takes place over six rounds of the European Rally Championship season. It’s open to drivers who were aged 27 or under at the start of the year, and who drive R2-specification two-wheel drive cars.



 The class exclusively uses Pirelli tyres. Drivers count their best four scores from the six events, and the champion will receive a fund worth 100,000 euros to use in the ERC Junior U28 class for four-wheel drive R5 cars in 2019.
