Rally is one of Tony’s passions, and over the years it has become a reality. In fact, in 2011 he decided for the first time to get involved with four wheels, participating in the Memorial Bettega. From 2013 the rider, supported by the Magneti Marelli Checkstar Team, has been taking part in the Monza Rally Show, a traditional motorsport event that usually ends the agonistic season of the year. Another important attendance was the Rally Legend of San Marino in 2014, where he triumphed over world-class drivers, taking the over all win.
The partnership between Tony and Magneti Marelli Checkstar is firm and growing year on year; Tony is an example of how willpower and rigorous application, in addition to his innate talent, can yield important results and the Team is determined to offer him the tools and support for ever better results.
