Peruggini nicks it in the last race
The Italian Hillclimb Championship (CIVM) saw another great season. Lucio Peruggini again kept the Ferrari colours high, starting the year superbly with the 458 Italia GT3 of AB Motorsport.
Head to head. Peruggini won all the early rounds, but from mid-season onwards had a very combative rival in Marco Iacoangeli. The two slugged it out race after race and only at the last round, the Luzzi-Sambucina, Peruggini managed to wrap things up. It was a hard-fought win but all the sweeter for it.
Gaetani and Colella. Luca Gaetani also collected six podiums in another 458 Italia GT3 for Vimotorsport. Ferrari’s drivers and customer teams also did well in other classes. Roberto Ragazzi totally dominated the GT Cup class with the 458 Challenge EVO of Superchallenge team, while Tommaso Colella won the GTS class with a glorious privately entered F430, followed by teammate Luigi Perchinunno.
