Pirelli and the mountains: The climb toward the third consecutive European title gets underway in Austria


 
The 2017 FIA European Hillclimb Championship gets underway this weekend with the opening Rechbergrennen round, based close to Tulwitz in Austria.



TWO SEASONS, TWO TITLES.




Pirelli has supplied P Zero tyres for hillclimbing since 2015, earning two consecutive European titles thanks to Italian driver Simone Faggioli, who additionally won his domestic title and the FIA Hillclimb Masters.



As a result, he starts the new season as favourite in his Zytek-powered Norma M20 FC, equipped by Pirelli.





THE 2017 CALENDAR.



 A total of 12 rounds are on the calendar, based all over Europe. The season finishes in Croatia in mid-September, also visiting Portugal, Spain, the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, France, Switzerland and Slovenia.



THE OPENING ROUND.




With nearly 170 entries, the 2017 Rechbergrennen is expected to be extremely closely-fought. The weather will be hard to predict, with colder temperatures than are usual at this time of year.



During the three days of the competition (from Friday 21 April to Sunday 23 April) a temperature range from minus 1°C to plus 10°C is forecast. The route is 5.05 kilometres long, taking in an elevation change of 272 metres.



The start is at 658 metres above sea level, with the finish at 930 metres above sea level at Rechberg-Dorf. The average gradient is 5.3%.





Quotes


Terenzio Testoni, Pirelli’s rally activity manager, said: “
“The Austrian round of the championship is expected to be even tougher than usual this year, because of the cold temperatures that are forecast.



As a result, Pirelli will equip the reigning champion, Simone Faggioli, with two compounds of P Zero tyres: supersoft and ultrasoft. The Cinturato will also be available, in case it rains.”
