JWRC and WRC3 World Champion for the 2016 season and multiple Romanian national champion, Simone Tempestini, has submitted an official application to participate in this year’s 52nd edition of Rally Bulgaria. The 28-year-old driver is one of the most experienced drivers in the Balkans, with numerous titles and participation in some of the most prestigious rally championships in the world.
In Veliko Tarnovo, he and his co-driver, Sergiu Itu, will arrive in their Porsche 997 GT3 RGT, not in their Skoda Fabia Rally2 evo, with which they are participating in this year’s European Rally Championship (ERC).
The last event of the Tempestini/Itu crew was at the Bacau Macadam Rally, which they won.
An interesting fact about Simone is that, unlike his father Marco Tempestini, he has not competed in Bulgaria until now.
