Not only established drivers for United Business, which on the contrary will actively look for their heirs both at Italian and at international level. After the excellent results of the last season with Luca Rossetti having become European Champion for the third time (Abarth Grande Punto S2000) and now entered in the 2012 Turkish Championship with the Skoda Fabia S2000 of Skoda Turkey – Yuce Auto – Pegasus Racing, with Piero Longhi winner of the 2011 Slovenian Championship (Skoda Fabia S2000) and now committed with the Mini Countryman WRC of Twister Corse in the International Rally Cup and with Portuguese Bernardo Sousa, who in 2011 after only two events with United Business won the Rally 2 delle Colline (Peugeot 207 S2000) ahead of WRC cars, and now, having become a works driver of the Team Lotus International Rally (Lotus Exige R-GT), United Business, which runs the sports management of more than 20 rally drivers, both Italian and foreign, is actively engaged in the best commercial-marketing management and sports planning of its young drivers in the 2012 programmes, including the confirmed Gabriele Cogni, ‘promoted’ to the Citroën Racing Trophy, and of the new entry at United Business, the young, but already expert, Molly Taylor.
For the young Australian driver who is part of the FIA “Women in Motorsport” project, United Business has set up a program aiming at both growth and prestige. The 2010 British Female Champion is scheduled to take part in some events of the 2012 World Rally Championship beginning with Rally Finland with a Citroën DS3 R3T, after some private tests and some preparation events. Molly Taylor has already taken part in the recent Geko Ypres Rally and will line up next weekend, with the car in the United Business livery prepared by BP Racing, as zero car in the Rally del Casentino, valid for the International Rally Cup (www.ircup.net), before tackling the Rally di Lucca at the end of this month (www.balestrero.it/2012/rally-coppa-citta-lucca ).
The Rally del Casentino, also valid as the third round of the Italian Citroën Racing Trophy, will also see in competition Gabriele Cogni, who after his excellent results in last season (winner of the Peugeot 207 Top Trophy) is currently second in the overall ranking of the series, together with Silvia Mazzetti and always with a Citroën DS3 R3T in the United Business livery and followed by BP Racing.
The Rally del Casentino (www.scuderiaetruria.net) will be held on Saturday, July 14th with start (at 10:31) and finish (at 23:00) in Bibbiena (Arezzo – Italy) and includes eight special stages on tarmac for a total of over 137 km, of which the last stage of 35.44 km will be run in nighttime.
