IRCup Pirelli - Eight for a title

IRCup Pirelli - Eight for a title

11.07.2019: Manuel Sossella, first again on the Casentino route, raked in the points that allow him to continue hoping to establish himself in the IRCup - Pirelli. Like the five that precede him and the two that follow, in a very short ranking

Manuel Sossella, first again on the Casentino route, raked in the points that allow him to continue hoping to establish himself in the IRCup - Pirelli. Like the five that precede him  and the two that follow,  in a very short ranking



One hundred forty-one points Damiano De Tommaso, seventy-one Fofò Di Benedetto. Between the two, first and eighth in a really short ranking, a nice group consisting of Alessandro Re, Paolo Porro, Marco Roncoroni, Gianluca Tosi, Manuel Sossella and Walter Gentilini.



Sparkling as always and as always generous and cruel at the same time, the Rally del Casentino has clarified only that the Rally Bassano will decide who will pocket the forty thousand euros destined for the winner and who will have to be content with less consistent but more rewarding prizes than a tin cup and a handshake reserved for the placed.




This is due to a regulation that provides for a surplus of points for the fifth and final round of the season, but also for a destiny that in the Arezzo area with some of the most prominent protagonists of the series was particularly cynical. And yet particularly cheated. It happens, unfortunately.



In the beautiful Tuscan valley it happens to Felice Re, sent to the carpet by an illness when the most seemed done, when he had left behind even the thirty-six kilometers of the Talla Special Stage and it would have been enough to grind the few kilometers that separated it from Bibbiena to return to breathe the sparkling air that you breathe on every podium. With the master of the HK team forced to take the last transfer by ambulance, his son Alessandro could only give up the race to follow him "because it's okay to run, but in certain situations the priorities are others".



Here then that a placement chased, embellished by an important time in the test-monument of the rally and yet much less than he legitimate ambitions of the eve, was enough to Damiano De Tommaso to return to look at everyone from the top of the ranking of the series.


But certainly not to celebrate. It will do so, perhaps, at the end of September. After the conclusion of the Bassano Rally. But this is another story and it is all to write and live. Until then, many will hope. Not all eight with the same objective probability of making it, but all eight with the comfort of arithmetic.
