Is Rally Vermentino In Sardinia The Prettiest Setting For A Race?
Out of the blue, our friend Luca Garau recently sent over some photos of an event he’d attended in Sicily called the Vermentino Rally. Once we picked our jaws off the floor, we figured you’d like to take in a smaller regional event that puts sideways action mere feet from its spectators.
According to Luca, the event is held on roads that run between Berchidda, Monti and Telti, which are three northern Sardinian villages famous for their white wines. Here, slippery tarmac roads are surrounded by vineyards and fields are covered in Mediterranean scrub, and naturally, photographers have a varied backdrop for capturing shots of historic machines being taken to the limit.
