Nytko Motorsport has been taking part in the FIA Alternative Energies Cup as a team since 2013. In June 2016, we did two rally events, one in Bolzano Italy and second starting in San Marino thru Italy, France and finishing in Monaco. Basically we did almost 7500km in 10 days.
The 5th Ecorally Della Mendola In Bolzano was between June 11-12 around beautiful landscape of Italian South Tyrol. The rally was combine with the historic rally 10th Mendola Mendel History so we could see some amazing historic rally cars. The rally was just over 500km so it can qualify for the full points in FIA championship. The final result for us was 4th place in the FIA class and 2nd as a Hybrid car. The weather wasn't great but still we had a fantastic time due to the roads, hospitality of the local club and the Italian people.
The following Thursday after the Bolzano rally we arrived at San Marino for the 11th ECORALLY San Marino - Monte Carlo. Interesting fact is that Mr. Ennio Morri from San Marino is the “Father” of all the Eco Rally event and actually Ecorally is a register trade mark of his.
After all the tech inspection and registration we started the rally on Friday from San Marino to Parma, truly beautiful countryside with a Control Point at the Ferrari factory. The second day went from Parma all the way to San Remo, on that day the last two regularity stages were held on old WRC Special Stage roads from Rally San Remo. They were amazing roads and a fantastic experience for a driver. At the end of that day we arrived at the San Remo water front for the night and fantastic well deserved dinner.
Last day of the 11th ECORALLY was taking us back to the mountains and just before the boarder with France was the last time control, together with the end of the rally. After that we crossed the boarder with France and thru Sospel we drove straight to Monaco and Prince of Monaco's Palace.
The official end of the rally and awards ceremony was held in a restaurant just across from the Palace in Monaco. We did fantastic with a 3rd overall in the rally (combine regularity and Italian tube test measured to the 1/100sec) and 5th in the FIA cup points (only for the regularity). We were the first non-Italian team to take the podium in the history of the ECORALLY.
Nytko Motorsport currently sits 4th in FIA cup points as a driver and 5th as a co-driver.
