Autodromo Nazionale Monza alongside the Municipality of Monza in the #ResponsabilmenteGiovani project

The initiative aims to raise awareness and educate the younger generations on the best behaviors to pursue to reduce and combat the risks of road accidents.

Monza, 17 November 2022 – Spreading the culture of moving around safely through knowledge and the adoption of correct behavior and stimulating greater awareness of the risks of the vehicle and the road. With this in mind, the safe driving courses for cars and scooters, developed in collaboration with AC Milano, started today at the Monza Autodrome for over 200 students, including novice drivers and pink sheet holders, from the Monza schools participating in #ResponsabilmenteGiovani .

The initiative, conceived and presented by the Municipality of Monza , ranked second in the ranking of projects selected by the Ministry of the Interior for the promotion, coordination and monitoring of prevention, experimentation and contrast activities on the national territory of traffic accidents caused by alcohol and drugs.

“Automobile Club Milano is always in the front line, with the experts of its structure and its statutory study commissions, in the training of all road users, in order to create and disseminate in them a careful and growing knowledge of the characteristics of the traffic, the means used, the driving skills required, the rules of conduct, the dangers, the importance of all the aspects and all the rules that make up the complex picture of road safety. Our commitment embraces all age groups starting from the smallest and youngest, protagonists of the mobility of the future that we therefore wish to create on solid foundations built on prevention and awareness. That awareness that is indispensable every time we move at any time of our day, on foot or using any means”, he underlines Geronimo La Russa , President of Automobile Club Milano.

“Nobody owns the road, every day millions of people walk it as if it were a normal routine activity which leads us all to feel somewhat invincible and perfectly able to pay attention to several activities at the same time. We forget our responsibility towards the community and ignore that we are a potential danger both for us and for those around us; so let us try to remember that over 60% of road deaths are innocent victims of the distraction of others, which is the main cause of road accidents. When we are on the road - drivers, pedestrians, cyclists or scooter users - we must never feel hyper-protected by road rules (frequently interpreted too loosely and extensively in our favour) but think that through distraction or driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, or due to a sudden illness, or due to the material impossibility of realizing the sudden danger, those arriving may find themselves in the position of not being able to avoid the accident. We must therefore ensure that the perception of danger increases more and more in all road users, through targeted awareness campaigns on road safety education”, he says Giuseppe Redaelli , President of the Monza National Circuit.

“Making the generations who are approaching car driving aware of having respect for their vehicle and for all the 'actors' on the road, including pedestrians, is the first step in strengthening the perception of the risks deriving from incautious behaviour, such as distraction at the wheel , the underestimation of the road and above all the high speed. Also in the Temple of Speed, the ACI, which protects road safety among its statutory purposes, wants to demonstrate that it is possible to teach the youngest how to acquire the correct evaluation of the road and its dangers in relation to the road route, the importance to always respect the highway code, made up of simple rules that can save one's life and that of others”, he says Alessandra Zinno , General Manager of the Monza National Circuit.

The Monza and Brianza Traffic Police and the Monza Local Police were also present on the first day of the courses, which deal with roadside checks, in particular in the most sensitive time slots with respect to the phenomenon of driving while intoxicated or under the effect of narcotic substances.

Starting from the early stages of the project, the Police Forces have significantly increased the number of checks in order to prevent accidents. Since April, 586 drivers have been checked, including 78 novice drivers. 409 alcohol pre-tests and 18 drug tests were carried out - "Investing in the prevention and training of the youngest is an essential lever on the educational and safety fronts - explains the Mayor Paolo Pilotto - Opportunities like these, therefore, prove to be precious for learning in a serene way and for identifying positive examples to follow".

The Councilor for Youth Andreina Fumagalli and the Councilor for Security Ambrogio Moccia also took part in the press conference.

Together with the Italian Red Cross, Carrobiolo 2000 Cooperativa Sociale, Promozione Umana Onlus and Itineraria Teatro, Autodromo Nazionale Monza is one of the project implementers and will specifically organize safe driving courses for cars and scooters over 6 different days about 200 boys with the involvement of industry experts and the supervision of a talent loved and recognized by the younger generation of motorsport enthusiasts, namely the racing driver and TV presenter Davide Valsecchi.

The courses are designed as real training , in the classroom and in the field, to allow students to learn how to control the vehicle in different conditions: sudden dangers, braking, obstacles, wet curves and slippery asphalt. Furthermore, various types of road bends will be tackled to facilitate training and the evaluation of the correct speed approaching a bend and the intensity of braking.

Safe driving courses for cars are organized by Master Driving, a reality founded and directed by Maurizio Verini, Italian and European Rally champion and world champion for the Marches (FIAT), who has been involved in road safety for over 15 years and in particular in theoretical and practical car driving courses at all levels.

The safe driving courses for scooters, a vehicle that is becoming more and more part of the travel habits especially of the youngest, are instead held with the support of Dott, who makes available for the entire duration of the project up to 25 scooters and a qualified instructor. Dott is the market leader in the scooter and ebike sharing sector and has always invested in training and safety. Dott has been active in Italy since 2019 and in Milan and Monza since 2020 with its rental services.


Crugnola-Carmellino dominate the Special Rally Circuit in the Temple of Speed

The two-time Italian rally champion Andrea Crugnola, sailed by Marina Carmellino, wins three of the four stages disputed and wins by over 20 seconds over Tosini-Peroglio. Zanazio-Brusa finish third on the only WRC Plus in the race.

Andrea Crugnola is the winner of the sixth edition of the Special Rally Circuit organized by Vedovati Corse. The expert driver from Varese, the Italian rally champion in 2020 and 2022 and winner of the Monza Rally Show in 2019, has asserted his experience in the specialty by outclassing all the 99 opponents who have tried, unsuccessfully, to compete for the top step of the podium.

In fact, after two cars were forced to retire due to technical problems at the end of the shakedown on Saturday, there were 100 drivers at the start of the "Monzino", which gave life to four hard-fought Special Stages for a total of 81.4 Km covered. , in front of a cheering audience arranged on the terraces and stands of the Temple of Speed.

Crugnola, sailed by his partner Marina Carmellino, showed up at Monza driving a Citroën C3 R5 from Movisport, and was also able to beat the only WRC Plus in the race, the Ford Fiesta driven by Guido Zanazio And Cesare Brusa, who alternated in the roles of driver and navigator between the various tests and who closed the weekend in third overall, after being in second place until the start of the fourth test.

Crugnola-Carmellino, who conquered the success with more than 20 seconds of margin on the first rivals, were good at starting immediately strong, winning both the PS in the morning, the Vedovati 1 and the Special Vedovati 2, and putting between themselves and the two drivers of the WRC Plus an important margin, administered until the end. What made the difference was the second test of the day - after a very balanced first scratch and concluded in favor of the winners by just one tenth - with Crugnola and Carmellino who preceded the rival duo by 16.9 seconds.

Zanazio-Brusa tried to reassemble, grabbing the third Special Stage, but they ran into a bad fourth heat, so much so that they couldn't even confirm second place, stolen in the final by just two tenths of a second. Luca Tosini And Roberto Peroglio, third in 2021, on a Skoda Fabia R5 from Historika. Less fortunate was last year's star performer Marco Butti who, after a comforting start, damaged the car by losing some positions and finishing sixth with his Hyundai I20 (Dimensione Corse).

The Special Rally Circuit closed the sports season of the Temple of Speed. A year that saw the Autodrome become the home of endurance for two consecutive weeks in July, hosting both the European Le Mans Series and the World Endurance Championship, before recording a record attendance during Formula 1 Pirelli Italian Grand Prix 2022, with the red tide that inflamed the stands of the Brianza circuit for three days.

The Italian-Japanese duo won the race and the overall title by taking advantage of the technical problem of the teammates of the VSR team and direct rivals Hites-Michelotto-Basz. Giacomo Pollini, on the other hand, triumphs in the Italian Sport Prototypes Championship in front of a good audience.

6 championships, 11 races, over 200 drivers on the track and two absolute titles awarded. With these numbers ended the ACI Racing Weekend 2 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, during which the fate of the Italian GT Endurance Championship and the Italian Sport Prototype Championship were written. Another two-sided weekend, at least in terms of weather, for the Temple of Speed, with a sunny Saturday and a Sunday conditioned by bad weather that slowed down the racing program.

Edoardo Liberati and Yuki Nemoto in Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo won the 2022 Italian Gran Turismo Endurance Championship . The two VSR team drivers, who arrived at the Brianza circuit with only one point of advantage over teammates Benjamin Hites, Mattia Michelotto and Karol Basz, had to sweat until the last minutes both the triumph in the Monza race and the conquest of the title . The race was in fact very tight at least until Basz was forced to park his car on the side of the track due to a mechanical problem, just at the moment when he was closely following the Lambo direct competitor for the title, driven at that moment. by Nemoto. And it was the Japanese driver who was the real MVP of the race, also compensating for Liberati's back problems and recovering all the positions that the Roman driver had lost in the first third of the race (despite starting from pole), when due to physical limits he it was overtaken by several cars. Nemoto was able to recover to the sound of fast laps and finished the race, made exciting also by the repeated safety cars that reunited the group several times, in front of the trio made up of Jacopo Guidetti, Jorge Cabezas and Leonardo Moncini (Nova Race ) on Honda NSX and another Lamborghini Huracan driven by Raul Guzman, Mateo Llarena and Daan Pijl (Imperiale Racing).

The Italian Sport Prototype Championship was also decided in Monza. Giacomo Pollini (ASD Pollini Race) arrived as a great favorite, at least looking at the mere classification, for the 36 points advantage over Davide Uboldi (Uboldi Corse) and respected the predictions.
