Lorenzo Bertelli begins its 2017 at the Rally of Sweden


Lorenzo Bertelli rang with the force in the first phase of the ‘silly season’ as a private pilot with options to compete with one of the Ford Fiesta RS WRC 2017. However, the name of the Italian has been fading with the passage of the weeks to the point that Mads Ostberg and Martin Prokop have been the first two pilots that have confirmed a program with the World Rally Car of Cumbria, which limits the options for Lorenzo Bertelli, at least in the first phase of the season, by the number of chassis built by the team of Malcolm Wilson.

With all Lorenzo Bertelli will start its program in 2017 at the Rally of Sweden, proof of not a very pleasant memory for the heir of Prada, all time that in the last edition retired voluntarily by the controversy with the tires from nails and the lack of snow experienced by the rally during its first stage. Despite this, the Italian has decided that his first appearance in the World Rally this year and will have to fight in the appointment, scandinavian after skipping the Rally of Monte carlo, although they have not specified the vehicle with which it will compete.

In this aspect, Lorenzo Bertelli commented on the possibility of making only three rallies throughout the year with a Ford Fiesta RS WRC new generation, something for which I would need M-Sport. A possibility which however has not been finished in concrete, so that’s a question the vehicle with which to take the start of the Rally of Sweden. Although it is very likely that in the second calendar appointment, add new names to the Trophy WRC intended for the World Rally Cars 1.6 T first generation, as is the case of Valeriy Gorban, it does not appear that Lorenzo Bertelli is very interested in this category.
