Valentino Rossi caresses with the fingers his fifth win in
the Monza Rally Show after a second day that has not been the most
fast, but yes the more regular. Thanks to this condition, the Italian holds
an advantage of 12.4 seconds over Marco Bonanomi, a pilot who has competed with
Audi in the WEC or in the Blancpain GT Series. For his part, Dani Sordo has fallen
to the third position after being quite hurt by the traffic in the
two longer stretches of the day. The spaniard is at 15.2 seconds
the leader in Monza.
After an initial period of maximum equality, the second day
the Monza Rally Show started with scratch for Dani Sordo at the wheel of his
Hyundai i20 WRC in the special ‘Parables 1’. A mirage in any case for the pilot of rallies, as the big
protagonist of the day was going to be an inspired Framework Bobanomi by gala
his great knowledge of the layout of Monza is noted the scratch on the SS4. The Italian at the wheel of his Citroën DS3 WRC already stood at the second
position by then, lthough Bonanomi repeated scratch in ‘Parables 2’ with the
World Rally Car French.
all in all, the coup de grace gave Valentino Rossi to be the fastest in the longest stretch of the day. While the pilot of MotoGP I got the scratch in ‘Maxi Grand Prix 1’, the cantabrian Dani Sordo had some problems to go, overtaking the slower riders -things unworthy of a rally – and left it for 9,5 seconds, distance is not tidied his scratch in the special that closed the day. In this way, Rossi flaunts an advantage of 12.4 seconds over Bonanomi and 15.2 on Deaf, margin without being definitive enables us to face the three final stages with margin.
behind the duel for the podium, Alessandro Bosca and Piero Longhi have taken a step to the front to complete the top five, although in the case of Longhi won’t have it easy as Roberto Brivio and Davide Brivio -boss of Suzuki in MotoGP – they have the same time after the first seven sections. In any case, tenth is situated Paolo Andreucci as a leader between R5. The Italian is by signing up for a great performance with the Peugeot 208 T16 R5 to overcome the Fabia Luca Rossetti and the Hyundai i20 Fabio Andolfi. Marco Bianchini with Lancia Rally 037 continues to lead the Monza Rally Historic Show.
