Stormy Sunday

Marco Zanello Reports on the last meeting of the Peter Auto season

Sunday night on my way home from the Imola Classic, last Peter Auto event of the 2018 season, and thinking about what happened on the circuit, reminded me of a quote from St Francis of Assisi that goes, “A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows”. Contrary to what readers will have seen in the papers about the storms that pounded Italy over the last weekend of October and, to be fair, contaminated the Sunday of the event, my thoughts turned rather to the racing and the ambiance of the meeting. Peter Auto’s recipe continues to be a winning one and the circuit of Imola is one that the drivers love to drive on but, due to the Italian audience’s indifference and the lateness in the season, the meeting was a little low key in comparison to some of the other meetings.

Landslide Victory

The Himalayan Challenge turned out to be one of the toughest rallies that the Endurance Rally Association (ERA) has ever run and getting to the finish was quite an achievement in itself for the 40 classic and vintage crews competing on the 21-day event. They had faced landslides, violent storms and road closures before reaching the finish line, in the shadow of the Taj Mahal in Agra.
