Second round of the Warn Trophy Italia was fiercer than any round before. Valdagno (Vicenza) hosted the race on 6th and 7th of June.
One of the teams (Rocca / Donati) demonstrated excellent performance and teamwork. They won the Traction4x4 and MB Corse trophies of the first day of racing. Unfortuntely, six races held on Saturday have seen some major withdrawals. The Torque team (Frizza/ Pagani) literally bent the chassis of their proto. Baglietto / Borysthenes decided to retire after a malfunction on the winch. Austrian TJ5.3 crew was forced to retire due to destroyed gearing after one of the wheels got stuck betwen huge rocks.
On Sunday, special tests were held in Recoaro Terme.
Warn trophy Italy is not a game for kids. It is hard and cruel. Next round is scheduled for 18th and 19th of July in Varazze (Savona).
