HMI is born, it will operate two Hyundai i20 WRC.

The new HMI team is born under the supervision of Luca Murdolo, a valued technician who has worked for many years with Grifone and Step 2. The team has reached an agreement with Hyundai Motorsport to buy and operate on-event two Hyundai i20 WRC. The debut is scheduled with the crew Corrado Fontana - Nicola Arena in the 39. Rally 1000 Miglia, opening round of the Italian WRC Championship (CIWRC). The driver from Como will tackle the first event with the new car which he tested only briefly in Germany, before announcing his sports programmes for 2015.

Corrado Fontana: “We start this new adventure with great enthusiasm; for us the 1000 Miglia will be at 100% a test event, where the goal will be to understand and customize the set-up of the car as much as possible; until now I have only driven this car only at the shakedown in Germany; I come from 3 years of experience with the FOCUS, a 2000cc WRC completely different from the 1600cc regarding set-up and driving style; however I have the great privilege of using the same material as the works team, I will only have to work to adapt the car to my driving style”.

The programme of the 39. Rally 1000 Miglia: scrutineering in Brescia on the morning of Friday, March 27th, shakedown from 13:00 to 17:00 on Monte Tesio. In the evening the start and the crews presentation ceremony in Piazzale Arnaldo.
Restart at 7:00 on
Saturday 28th for two loops of three special stages, final arrival in Piazzale Arnaldo at 18.45. Total route of 404 km, 100 of which are of special stages.
