If you had talked to
Gigi in these months, you would have often heard the same key word:
2010. The driver from Livigno did all his best to organise a program
with the Focus of Stobart Team for this season, but the difficult
economical situation, affecting all business fields, made even
tougher finding sponsors that could support his return to the
competitions in 2009.
ď2009 was born under
an unlucky star Ė explains Gigi Ė ďWe got the bases for running a
part-time program but the available budget would have allowed me to
contest a few events only, without any guarantee of continuity. I
did not want it. Therefore I have focused all my efforts on 2010. We
are assessing different opportunities, but the final decision about
what we will be doing and with which car has still to be taken.
New regulations of
rallying in the future... continue...
Through many means (emails, facebook and messages left on the
guestbook) many of you have asked for news about Gigiís next season.
Thatís why he wishes to inform all the fans, through this letter,
about his current situation.
Gigi is in touch with Malcom Wilson (M-Sport director) in the joint
effort to arrange a programme in the World Rally Championship, in
order to make him driving a Ford Focus in the highest possible
number of events. At the moment part of the required budget is still
missing and Gigi is working very hard on it.
