BRC trionfa in Romania


BRC wins in Romania

Basso and Granai conquer Transilvania Rally

Excellent debut for Giandomenico Basso and Lorenzo Granai at Tour European Rally 2017. The BRC Gas Equipment team, returning Italian Champions, prove all the valour in the continental series too, achieving a clear and never questioned victory.

The Rally took place on fast and insidious roads, up to 130 km/h average distances. The first day, the rain made racing interpretation and strategy even difficult, and many accidents and passes occurred.

In spite of this hard scenario, Basso and Granai, driving the new Hyundai I20 R5 for the first time, conquer 9 trials out of 14 and are superb to contain rivals during the last special stages of the second racing day.

BRC team also win the Power Stage, giving special points useful for overall rank. Thanks to the “jackpot”, Basso and Granai take the lead in European series, waiting for the second round on the roads of the Belgian historical city of Ypres, on June 23rd.

Giandomenico Basso says: “We are excited and very happy for our TER winning debut, the car Hyundai I20 R5 was fast and reliable from the very beginning; thanks to our team too, we got quickly the right feeling. The beginning was wonderful, now we have to work hard to prepare next races”.

Lorenzo Granai adds: “This was a new and unknown race to us, but we did a good job preparing and managing it at best, leaving behind international crews and local fierce drivers”.
