Italian Mauro Miele secured a podium finish at the Monte Carlo Rally.
The Olgiata-born driver, alongside co-pilot Luca Beltrame, prevailed aboard the Skoda Fabia RS.
The Rallye de Monte-Carlo is globally renowned for its demanding challenge, characterized by difficult trials and challenging roads. Facing snow, ice, sudden temperature changes, and long transfers, participants encounter numerous obstacles throughout the competition.
But nothing stopped Mauro Miele, the driver from Como, who, aboard the Skoda Fabia RS with co-pilot Luca Beltrame, tackled the 17 special stages of the 92nd edition of the Rallye de Monte-Carlo.
The driver experienced an intense week, starting the competition on Monday morning and concluding it on Sunday evening. The days were marked by early departures and limited hours of sleep due to lengthy reconnaissance missions ending at 8 pm.
The rally presented additional challenges, beyond the special stages, including physical stress and sleep deprivation. The early morning hours were particularly critical, with the risk of encountering ice behind every turn. Despite the tension and anxiety, the driver praised the fact that everything went well, with only one puncture almost at the end of a stage, no mechanical problems, and a positive start and finish.
This year’s edition of the Rallye de Monte-Carlo was unusual due to milder temperatures. Despite seemingly summer-like conditions, ice was still present at night with temperatures below zero. Tire management posed an additional challenge, as the warmer temperatures made even the hardest compound less than ideal.
In conclusion, Mauro Miele successfully navigated the Rallye de Monte-Carlo, overcoming all the challenges presented by the competition and weather conditions.
