20.07.2020 – While the first images of drivers testing today in Ceprano are starting to appear, in Fiuggi preparation works continue ahead of the Rally di Roma Capitale that will take place from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th as the opener of FIA European Rally Championship 2020 and Italian Rally 2020 Championship.
In the very busy past few hours service parks in Fiuggi have been disinfected according to the Italian procedures following the Covid-19 pandemic. The plural is due to the fact that to allow interpersonal distances, due to the high number of entered crews in the 2020 edition of Rally di Roma Capitale, Motrorsport Italia set up two service parks: one in Piazzale della Fonte Anticolana, and the other located in Viale degli Studi.
The huge disinfection work has been possible thanks to the collaboration with Pissta, the company located in Rome that is the European leader in this field and constantly committed in the search for excellence and professionalism. Pissta employed 25 operational vehicles and about 50 safety professionals for this purpose. During the event, it will manage the triage points to get access to the working areas, as required by the Covid-19 protocol. Pissta will also be present in each stage with geo-referenced emergency vehicles provided with sophisticated equipment ready for every situation. They are capable of recovering in real-time damages to guard rails and all infrastructures.
The event will start from Castel Sant’Angelo on Friday evening at 19:00 after the shakedown and Qualifying Stage on Friday (only FIA ERC drivers) in Fumone. After the start, drivers will go through the charming streets of Rome passing by the most famous monuments of the Eternal City. The action will start on Saturday with three stages to be repeated three times. On Sunday three more stages will have to be repeated three times before reaching the finish line in Fiuggi.
As remarked several times, the rally will be run behind closed doors, therefore no fans area will be set up according to the current Italian regulations.
