Popoli, 26 July 2016 - The 54th Svolte di Popoli marked the return of the race organised by the community of Popoli and the Automobile Club Pescara to the ACI championship top series. A great audience and a spectacular performance characterised the seventh round of the Campionato Italiano Velocità Montagna [Italian Hill Climb Championship] in its Abruzzo event; in addition, the uncertain weather on race day made the Pescara event even more exciting.

This year, the year of his début in CIVM, he has won all six events in which he participated. The Veneto driver Luca Gaetani took second place, thus strengthening his lead in GT Cup class.
