Nucita focusing on ERC Abarth Rally Cup glory
Andrea Nucita is focused solely on scoring maximum points – and prize money – in the FIA European Rally Championship-supporting Abarth Rally Cup.
Nucita leads the one-make series for the Abarth 124 rally after five stages, despite a slow puncture on stage four.
“The first loop was very difficult but for me it’s okay because I am focused on the championship,” said the Sicilian. “I had a slow puncture for the last two or three kilometres of stage four, but I have a lead of 42s and I repeat the focus is on the championship because this is a very difficult race.”
Nucita is 42.1s ahead of Dariusz Poloński, the category winner on last month’s Rally di Roma Capitale. He will take home €12,000 if he stays in front of his Polish rival on Barum Czech Rally Zlín.
