Latest News: The 2019 racing season began with a resounding success for Abarth in the FIA R-GT Cup in the Monte Carlo Rally. Driven by Italians Enrico Brazzoli and Manuel Fenoli, the Abarth 124 rally reasserted its position as the GT to beat in its category, having taken the title in 2018. The Monte Carlo Rally once again lived up to its claim of being a challenging race, with drivers finding it necessary to use spiked winter tyres for most timed stages. They managed to switch to dry tyres for the final leg, which included two crossings of the legendary Col de Turini. Crew and car took the 2019 edition of the Monte Carlo Rally in their stride and dominated the category from beginning to end. Brazzoli, driving the Abarth 124 rally for the first time in a race, kept up a good pace and increased his lead over his opponents in the icy conditions. "We are very excited", Brazzoli said on the finish line. "This is a great result. We planned everything down to the last detail with Bernini and Abarth and are proud to have completed in this first race. My feeling with the car grew mile after mile. The Abarth 124 rally is fun to drive and very competitive. The special stages of the Monte Carlo Rally are always difficult, but we managed to get back to Monaco without problems". The next race of the season for Brazzoli will be the Rallye Tour de Corse, the second stage of the FIA R-GT Cup at the end of March. Abarth is also organising a single-brand championship with six races in the European Championship calendar (the first in Spain on 3 May, 2019) with the Abarth 124 rally. The 2019 Abarth 124 rally implements a host of technical modifications engineered to accentuate competitiveness and handling by the race engineers. These improvements are the result of meticulous development work carried out by test driver Alex Fiorio.
