Beautiful trails of Tuscan landscapes in the province of Lucca, hosted the opening leg of the 10th edition of Warn Trophy Italy 2015, the Italian off road championship organized by DeadDogs Promotion and Riccardo Pisani.
During the weekend of 25th and 26th April, three Extreme class teams and seven Limited 38 teams faced eachother on the rocky areas and dirt roads of Vagli.
Qualifying on the 1st day decided the starting order of the race. The victory was taken by Team Doc Spider (Rocca / Donati). Prologue was sponsored by Traction 4×4.
Four out of seven Limited 38 teams managed to finish the first special stage. Again, at the top of the podium, team Doc Spider (115 minutes), MB Corse were 2nd (134 minutes) and Mc Gyver team finished 3rd (135 minutes). Fourth position was taken by Team Schumacher from Austria.
Team Doc Spider also took the victory on the 2nd special on Saturday, followed by Mc Gyver and MB Corse.
Team Overjoy Wallaby (Re / Pulga) won the first special. Followed by Team Caffaz and Team Dalto. Second special stage was won by Team Dalto.
Three special stages made life miserable for all the participants, 3d stage was identical for both classes and the winner was awarded with a certain numer of points.
Those points are going to decide which of the teams will win an MB Corse winch at the end of the season.
In the opening leg of WTI 2015 the podium went to Doc Spider (Rocca/ Donati), followed by Team Schumacher.
Special stages on Sunday were extremely difficult and made the weekend even more exciting.
