2014 Charity Race – Announcement

2014 Charity Race – Announcement

Following the success of the past 5 years of the Charity Race organised by Team La Gang and ToniSport at the permanent RC Landia carpet track in Scandiano, the event is back for a 6th year from the 28th to the 30th of November. Born from an idea between Team La Gang and Marc and Toni Rheinard, the event went ahead with a big effort from the organisers along with the support of a whole host of top international drivers and factory teams. Last year thanks to a big auction that they do before the final they raised more than €7,500 which was donated to the department of paediatrics hospital in Scandiano in the form of equipment purchased directly from Team La Gang so they are sure that their money will used in the way that they want. Limited to 120 drivers due to the limited pit space this year, thanks to ToniSport, they will have Marc Rheinard, Ronald Volker and Daniel Baldissarri and in attendance while thanks to Team Xray they will have Alexander Hagberg, Martin Hudy, Bruno Coelho, Marek Cerny, Francesco Martini, Alessio Menicucci, Alessandro Brunelli and other Italian Xray team drivers coming who will race against the best drivers from all over Italy for a weekend of fun, charity, good food and racing. For anyone interested in attending, feel free to contact Toni Rheinard (info@tonisport.de) or Davide Sillingardi (sillarcmail@gmail.com). Registration will open on Monday 3th of November at 9 pm on myrcm.ch.
