The new driver of the Tamarugal XC Honda team, will have to postpone his debut with his new team, at least, for one more date because his Honda Civic Coupe will not be finished for Rancagua.
Former world cross country rally motorcycle champion, Carlo de Gavardo, became part of the Tamarugal XC Honda Racing team once the first date of the current season of the RallyMobil Championship ended. "El Condor de Huelquén" had to postpone his debut with the northern team for the third date of the tournament (8, 9 and 10 of June), this because De Gavardo was preparing a new Honda Civic Coupé, but unfortunately for the runner-up of the N3 Light in 2011 its premiere should be postponed for the date in La Serena, because the car will not be ready.
"Unfortunately the car will not be ready for this date, he is preparing a new Honda Civic Coupe, so some parts were not able to arrive in time these are very important spare parts, it's a shame, but Carlo (De Gavardo ) can not be in Rancagua, "said Tamarugal XC Honda team leader Javier Campillay.
With this, Carlo de Gavardo will miss two dates of the championship, but the objective of the Tamarugal XC Honda Racing team goes beyond the eight stages of the RallyMobil, they point to the Dakar 2013, which will end in Santiago.
"Carlo (De Gavardo) became part of the team that runs in the Dakar at the beginning of this year, in the RallyMobil it was something else, since he had commitments with another team (Orion Rally) so once he disconnected , it became part of the Tamarugal XC Honda in RallyMobil, unfortunately it will not be able to run now in Rancagua, but our project goes beyond that only this season, we aim for the long term in the local rally, "explained Campillay.
With this date, Carlo de Gavardo, adds two absences in the local tournament, so his debut with the colors of the Tamarugal XC Honda Racing team, will be postponed until the date of the IV Region.
