Jacopo is finally back in the race after the break due to COVID-19! The navigation championship has finally started in three days. Post lockdown there was a great desire to return to racing and finally the first race of the year of the 1st and 2nd round of the Motorally and the Raid TT got underway in Bella (PZ) in Basilicata. The Italian Motorally Championship for Jacopo Cerutti has started in the best possible way,
Many drivers at the start competed in the three days of competition in selective sectors. Several terrains available where the riders questioned their stamina and techniques, dosing speed and a careful reading of the roadbook. It was Jacopo who made the difference and scored amazing times in all three days, taking the lead on all days. Jacopo confronted himself in quick changes of direction, grassy pastures and technical areas where the focus was precisely on navigation.
THE BASILICATA RALLY IS THE PROPERTY OF JACOPO CERUTTI
Special after special Jacopo navigated by hitting all the notes within the selective areas. Cerutti collected the result and collected precious points for the Italian Motorally Championship and TT raid, thus climbing the top step of the podium of the Basilicata Rally. The podium was completed with Carlo Cabini (RS Moto) and the bronze by Andrea Mancini (Beta Dirt Racing).
JACOPO: I am really satisfied with my result! I ran into the attack and the tactic paid off big time. After the break I had a great desire to race and besides all the disappointment of not having won the Championship last year gave me a great drive and desire for redemption. The bike was perfect, thanks to the whole Team and all the Sponsors !! “
