“ I do believe that this fourth edition of the Autogiro d’Italia has confirmed once again how much enthusiasm, friendship and passion is brought in to the event by our participants – says Race Director Giampiero Sacchi. I have always thought that their satisfaction and enjoyment would be the best recognition to us, and an award which would help us forget how many and how big efforts we carry on every year to build up such a complex and complicated event.
I am extremely happy to see here in Pescara so many beautiful classic cars and participants brought together as a group whose friendship has been growing up day after day, stage after stage, kilometre after kilometre. Having travelled throughout southern Italy has been a unique sensation which we will hardly forget.
It is with great pleasure that I take this occasion to congratulate all classes podiums, and of course the winner in the final standing, crew Zappelli – Scandurra, whose third victory in a row makes them enter our Hall of Fame. Autogiro d’Italia is not an easy stroll, it requires a good mix of precision and perseverance. Tiredness comes out sooner or later and motivation makes the difference.
I wish to thank the City of Pescara which has welcomed us with great enthusiasm and all municipalities involved. Special thanks also to the City of Matera, to ASI under whose name we operate with pride, to CSI, to our sponsors which are a true support not only economically speaking, to the Carabinieri and to the Lega del Filo d’Oro. Many thanks also to the huge team which is our organizing group and finally to all participants which have relied their confidence on us. From now on we are just moving towards a magnificent Autogiro d’Italia 2023”
