RALLY CARS OF THE PAST AND PRESENT CAME TOGETHER IN FOUR DAYS OF “FULL-IMMERSION”, ATTRACTING MORE THAN SIXTY THOUSAND SPECTATORS FROM ALL OVER EUROPE. IT IS A UNIQUE COMPETITION WHICH SEES THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RALLY CARS IN HISTORY, TOGETHER WITH THE LATEST MODELS, GREAT CHAMPIONS OF THE PAST AND TODAY’S ACES, ENGAGED IN CHALLENGES AGAINST THE CLOCK, ON SPECIALLY DESIGNED ROUTES IN THE REPUBLIC OF SAN MARINO, PERFORMING AT THE WHEEL AND ENJOYING THEMSELVES, CLOSELY WATCHED BY THOUSANDS OF ENTHUSIASTS.

FOR THIS EDITION, EBERHARD HOSTED A SERIES OF INITIATIVES STARTING WITH THE VALUABLE PRESENCE OF ONE OF THE MOST BELOVED AND LEGENDARY CHAMPIONS OF THE SPORT, MIKI BIASION. THE BRAND AMBASSADOR WAS INVOLVED AGAIN THIS YEAR BY EBERHARD, TO THE DELIGHT OF ALL THE ENTHUSIASTS. WEARING THE COLOURS AND WATCHES OF THE MAISON, BIASION, AS ALWAYS, THRILLED THE CROWDS AS HE SPED ALONG THE TRACK IN A LANCIA 037, FLYING THE FLAG OF THE BRAND LOGO AND THE NEW NUVOLARI LEGEND WATCH; FOR THE MARTINI RACING PARADE ON THE OTHER HAND HE DROVE THE LANCIA DELTA WITH THE MARTINI COLOURS OF HIS 1988 WORLD CHAMPION TITLE. THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST EAGERLY AWAITED MOMENTS OF RALLYLEGEND 2018, WHERE TWENTY OR SO CARS OF RALLY GLORY, ALL IN THE UNMISTAKEABLE MARTINI RACING LIVERY, PARADED WITH THAT GROUP OF DRIVERS WHO MADE THEM LEGENDARY AT THE WHEEL. AS WELL AS THE RICH CALENDAR OF EVENTS WHICH TOOK PLACE IN THE VILLAGE, EBERHARD INTRODUCED A VERY SPECIAL AND MUCH ANTICIPATED ONE WITH THE CHAMPION FROM BASSANO DEL GRAPPA: ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND SATURDAY MORNING, WITHIN THE EBERHARD AREA, FANS AND THOSE JUST WANTING A LOOK GATHERED TOGETHER FOR A SPECIAL AUTOGRAPH SESSION. ALONG WITH HIM WAS ANOTHER GREAT CHAMPION WHO DELIGHTED THOSE PRESENT: KRIS MEEKE, THE ENGLISH CHAMPION OF THE CLASS OF 1979 AND A KEY FIGURE IN THE RALLY WORLD.

AT THE END OF 3 SPECTACULAR DAYS OF COMPETITION, CRAIG BREEN, DRIVING A CITROEN C4 WRC, TRIUMPHED IN THE “WRC” CATEGORY, THE CATEGORY CHOSEN BY EBERHARD & CO. FOR AWARD AMONG THE THREE CONTESTANTS.
