BRC in 2015 Italian Rally Championship

Like last year, an LPG-powered Ford Fiesta R5 featuring a BRC liquid state autogas injection system will compete in the Italian Rally Championship series in the 2015 season. And once again the car will be driven by Giandomenico Basso.

Little has changed for BRC Racing Team and the LDI-powered Fiesta – yet another similarity is the presence of Mitia Dotta, Giandomenico Basso's co-driver. However, the car itself, presented to the public by BRC president Mariano Costamagna, changed it's livery a bit for the new season. But then again, the ultimate goal remains the same – promoting BRC products and alternative fuels in general, all the while trying to collect as many championship points as possible.

Sadly, the team isn't up to a good start – the first round of the season, the 38th edition of Rally Il Ciocco, saw the Basso/Dotta duo quit during day two due to technical problems. Hopefully, the Fiesta R5 running on liquid autogas will fare better in the rounds to come, which are as follows:

  • Rally Sanremo (April 11);
  • Rally Adriatic (May 3);
  • Rally Targa Florio (May 31).

We'll keep our fingers crossed!
