“I wasn’t ready for the national competitions yet, but I remember the 12 Hours of Il Ciocco very well. My uncle was running (Giuseppe Signorelli ed) and I came to see him compete. I remember a beautiful scenario, so much so that later I gladly went back, on the occasion of other races, including a world championship round.

I’ve hung up my helmet for some time, but this time it’s worth dusting it off, I’m organizing to find the right partner, I don’t even know what the displacement will be but this time #Iwillbethere, I like the formula and the spirit of this race “
