Gryazin wins European Junior under 28 Championship, Andreucci clinches 11th Italian title


 



It’s been another successful weekend for Pirelli in rallying, with two championships wrapped up on the Italian tyres. Nikolay Gryazin, driving a Skoda Fabia on Pirelli Scorpion gravel tyres, won the final round of the FIA European Rally Championship: Rally Liepaja in Latvia, also clinching the European Junior Under 28 Championship at the same time.



Luca Rossetti, Andrea Crugnola and Paolo Andreucci filled an all-Pirelli podium on the Rally Due Valli: the final round of the Italian Championship, using P Zero tyres for asphalt. Andreucci’s third place overall also meant that he sealed an 11th Italian Rally Championship title.



Supremacy in Europe… The 21-year-old Russian driver Nikolay Gryazin was crowned European Junior Under 28 Champion: adding to Pirelli’s clean sweep of titles in the European series.



 This latest success complements the overall title won by Alexey Lukyanuk (Ford Fiesta), the ERC Junior Under 27 and ERC3 titles claimed by Martins Sesks (Opel Adam) and the ERC2 title sealed by Tibor Erdi Junior (Mitsubishi Lancer).


And in Italy… Paolo Andreucci and Anna Andreussi (Peugeot 208 T16) secured the astonishing record of an 11th Italian title. Pirelli has wrapped up nearly all the rally titles at home as well, with Andrea Crugnola (Ford Fiesta) winning the asphalt championship and Damiano De Tommaso (Peugeot 208 R2B) claiming the Junior and two-wheel drive honours.






QUOTES



Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli rally activity manager.
“It’s been an incredible weekend that rounds off a fantastic season, where our drivers demonstrated not only their own capabilities but also the strength and performance of Pirelli tyres on a wide variety of surfaces and in all weather conditions.



The journey started with our WRC2 win in Sweden and went on to take in all the success we’ve enjoyed in Europe and on various national championships, including our home series in Italy.



The Scorpion tyres for gravel, Sottozero for snow, P Zero for asphalt and Cinturato for rain allowed our drivers to make the most of their talents, in the certain knowledge that they had state-of-the-art products underneath them.




And it’s really good to see that Pirelli’s philosophy of supporting young drivers has led to a series of titles that have helped to reveal some new talents, all set for an exciting future.”
