The partnership of Pirelli and Abarth in rally racing dates back to the 1970s when the Italian automaker started fitting Pirelli Cinturato CN36 tyres on the Abarth 124 Rally driven by Paganelli and Russo in the Italian championship debut season. Fifty years later, the 2019 Abarth 124 Rally, fitting Pirelli P Zero tyres and driven by Italians Brazzoli and Fenoli, won the FIA R-GT Cup, an international championship consisting of eight events, including three valid for the WRC World Championship. The Abarth 124 Rally also competes in the single-brand Abarth Rally Cup, which consists of six races on European circuits. The P Zero tyres for the 124 Rally, in sizes 235/440 R18 RA (tarmac) and 205/65 R15 K (dirt), were developed by capitalising on Pirelli’s experience in the WRC. The Abarth 124 Rally was driven by Brazzoli and Nucita on the 3-kilometre-long circuit set up in the new Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park in Milan for the Abarth Days.
