•    19 teams in Sparco livery at the SANREMESE RALLYE

•    The GAMING RALLY CONTEST powered by Sparco Gaming with the Targa Florio as award

•    Simone Campedelli and Tania Canton Brand Ambassador Sparco

We are now close to the 68th Rallye Sanremo, the second round of the Italian Rally-Sparco® 2021 Championship, starting from Thursday 8 April with the tests that will officially kick off the race on the 10 and 11 April 2021 in the City of Flowers.

Sparco® as the main partner of the top Italian rally series, will be alongside the organization and most of the crews in the CIR (and CIR Junior) Sparco. At least 19 teams will wear Sparco®; among these, just to name a few, all the drivers of the Motorsport Italia team as well as the Nucita brothers, winners at Ciocco in the "two-wheel drive", competing with the official Peugeot team on board of the "terrible" 208 Rally 4.

The rally will also see the direct participation of Simone Campedelli, who has always been a white and blue Brand Ambassador, and his co-driver Tania Canton, aboard of the VW Polo R5 equipped entirely by Sparco® and characterized by a special livery designed in partnership with Engine, the famous Piedmontese house of spirits.

The Gift Collection, Sparco® "licensee", will also take part in the event supporting the operation.

Saturday 10 April, which will begin in the morning with the Shakedown, will also host a Gaming Rally Contest powered by Sparco Gaming from 13.30 to 15.30 in the Sim Racing Area at the Sparco® stand.

The Gaming Contest powered by Sparco Gaming will be held with the technical support of AK Informatica, inside the assistance area next to the ACI SPORT hospitality, and will be a moment in which the drivers registered for the real race will be able to challenge each other accordingly to the rules set by the organization of the Rallye within a virtual context against time.

The SIM RACING AREA will be provided  by Sparco® with two SIM RIG II driving simulators - Evolve 3.0 chassis, enriched with handbrakes to make the virtual experience even closer to the rally reality. The winner of the Gaming Rally Contest will be rewarded by the organization of the Rallye Sanremo, with the registration to the third stage of CIR SPARCO 2021 - the 105th TARGA FLORIO which will be held from 7 to 8 May 2021 in Palermo.
