An enormous crowd of fans applauded the departing stars of Roma Capitale Rally in the performing trial held in the heart of the eternal city.
People can see such a show, in the very downtown of the city, only in Rome and in other two cities all over the world.
That was a powerful start, under the shadow of the Palazzo della Civiltà, with the double performing trials and the “One vs One” time challenge pursuit racing, full of hairpins, corners and straight lines.
That was pure adrenaline for the people crowding the stands to watch a free-entry, unique and exciting Special Trial.
