Italy – the home of motorsport ? Well certainly home to the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat & Pagani all with a rich racing & automotive history – A country we love travelling to and covering events at – this week we’re back at the Ongaroring in Sacile – near the beautiful city of Venice northern Italy.

The Ongaroring, on Via Ongaresca is the home track of a certain Italian family – the Ongaros – their son Davide already a bit of a star, having burst onto the scene a couple of years ago featuring as part of the Italian ‘Brat pack’ along with the likes of Riccardo Berton, Marco Baruffolo, Alex Zanchettin, Alessandro Stocco, Marco Natale.

These Bright young things are the future of Italian offroad racing. With that however comes pressure – Davide Ongaro TQ’ing the 2013 Euro B that was held here, but ultimately losing out on the title many expected him to clinch to Marco Baruffolo. Could it be a case of revenge this time around ? Ongaro was fast at the warm up but ultimately Elliott Boots had the speed and took the win, himself floating on a bit of a confidence wave, not forgetting Riccardo Berton – he’s had a whirlwind couple of weeks with racing, winning the Euro B and Euro Contest and Novarossi trophy this weekend.

Back to the track, it’s a typical Euro out-n’-out style layout thats fast-ish lots of 180 corners, abrasive on tyres and small jumps and multi surface including a few brick sections, an Italian flag roller and a nice fast chicane kink at the end of the straight which will catch a few cars out.
