The UK participants have now completed the first ‘on track’ evaluation at the Varano Circuit in Northern Italy.
The UK participants have successfully completed their evaluation at the Abarth Driving Academy at Varano Circuit. Tiffany Chittenden, the Abarth UK Driver Coach and Brand Ambassador commented; “We had a great team, all were supportive of each other while showing great sportsmanship and a real determination to get through to the next stage. There were specific driving tasks that tested their ability along with plenty of time on track in a range of Abarths including the Abarth 500 Assetto Corse… I hope everyone enjoyed their Abarth driving experience; it is sad that all participants couldn’t be selected but that’s how it goes I’m afraid – I’m sure it was a very difficult decision for those that had to make the selection as the driving standards were high and all the UK contingent had great personalities in front of the cameras. Thanks to Abarth and all who made this possible but the biggest thanks have to go to the UK participants for being such great fun and a truly great team.”
Here’s a selection of photos to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what happened in Varano…
