21.10.2018: Giandomenico Basso, driving a Skoda Fabia R5 with Pirelli tyres, and co-driver Lorenzo Granai have won the Rally du Valais, a well-known international event in Switzerland which concluded both the FIA Tour European Rally series and the Swiss national

Giandomenico Basso, driving a Skoda Fabia R5 with Pirelli tyres, and co-driver Lorenzo Granai have won the Rally du Valais, a well-known international event in Switzerland which concluded both the FIA Tour European Rally series and the Swiss national championship.





With this success the Italian driver also secured the championship in the FIA series, completing a clean-sweep of continental titles for Pirelli, with its drivers having already secured all the major titles in the FIA European Rally Championship: the Russians Alexey Lukyanuk and Alexey Arnautov (Ford Fiesta R5) are overall champions, Latvian Martins Sesks (Opel Adam R2) the European Junior Under 27 and ERC3 champion, Russian Nikolay Gryazin (Skoda Fabia R5) the European Junior Under 28 champion, and Hungarian Tibor Erdi jr. (Mitsubishi Lancer) the ERC2 champion.



Ivan Ballinari is Swiss champion. The number of national titles won by drivers who compete with Pirelli continues to increase. Thanks to fifth place in the Rally du Valais, Ivan Ballinari paired with Paolo Pianca in a Skoda Fabia R5 won the Swiss national title.



The products. Given the low grip of the Swiss asphalt roads, Pirelli drivers used the P Zero in softer compounds, such as the RK9A5. Basso scored the best time on the longest test of 32 kilometres, with a mix of asphalt (40%) and gravel (60%).






Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli activity manager rally
. “The Rally du Valais is one of the most traditional events in European rallying and one of the most demanding.



 For this reason, Basso’s victory with Pirelli tires is very significant, just like this new FIA title at continental level, which ideally completes the extraordinary sweep of European titles for our young and experienced drivers, with two- and four-wheel-drive vehicles.



 It is a series of accolades that continues at the national level: after the Italian title of Paolo Andreucci, the Swiss one has now arrived thanks to Ivan Ballinari. Congratulations to him.”
