Reggio Emilia, 20 September 2020 – The fourth and last round of the 2020 Italian CIV Championship ended yesterday at the “Piero Taruffi” Autodrome in Vallelunga, where the seventh and eighth rounds of the competition were held.

Race 1

The weekend started positively for Elia Bartolini and Matteo Boncinelli with good times recorded in free practice and qualifying, where they respectively obtained the third and tenth position on the starting grid. After a good start Bartolini placed himself in third position with a slight gap from the first two riders (Surra and Perez Selfa). He remained constant throughout the race, getting the fastest lap of the day, but on the eleventh lap a crash did not allow him to finish the race. Matteo Boncinelli did well, at the start he immediately placed himself in eighth position and realized the result managing to finish in fifth position.

PreMoto 3
After qualifying with very unstable weather conditions, Manuel Margarito got eighth on the starting grid. The start of the race was good and Manuel placed himself in third position. With the drying of the track the pace of the race increased and Margarito detached himself from the top positions to finish in ninth place.

Race 2
Moto 3

In a heart-pounding end of the season Elia Bartolini conquered the first position, collecting a more than deserved result after having managed a high pace race, thanks to a fall by Surra that involved Perez Selfa while Elia was in third position. Matteo Boncinelli did very well, finishing fourth in the standings, the best result of the season for him. Kevin Zannoni won the title.

PreMoto 3
Opposite final for the PreMoto 3 category with a crash at the start of the race for Manuel Margarito, which makes him close the season with a bitter taste.
