Vvallelunga-Classic kicks off the season!

Last weekend the first rendezvous of the 2015 season of historic races organised by Peter Auto got under way on the Piero Taruffi autodromo. The French organiser’s five major grids were all on the programme.

Italy, home of grand prix, rallies and great road-racing events as well as the cradle of some of the legendary names in the automotive industry, has been among Peter Auto’s regular destinations over the past several years. After Imola and Mugello, the drivers kicked off their season on the Vallelunga circuit. It is in the province of Rome and its 4100 metres consist of long straights, slow and fast corners, and it basked in glorious weather all weekend. Saturday was devoted to practice and qualifying and the races took place on Sunday with the Heritage Touring Cup setting the ball rolling.
