ALMOST AT VALENCIA...

Hi Friends,

Almost there: on Sunday we will race at Valencia and I hope to achieve something good there.

All right, I know, I know. I always say the same things but please leave me at least the hope. even if where I leave they use to say that "who leaves hoping dyes sh.ing" but this is another story anyway.

We recently tested at Oschersleben and things didn't go that bad. Of course we haven't been the fastest but at least we managed to get ourselves out of those problems that troubled us after the beginning of the tests. We finally found some setup solutions that may turn out to be useful at Valencia too.

Regarding the Hand Bike, after Padova I licked my own wounds but I did not give up with training and most of all I did not lose the confidence in the Lupella that I am continuing to modify. My friend and co-author Gianluca Gasparini says that I created a vehicle as diabolic and unforeseeable as the Lotus 88 with the double chassis of Colin Chapman that, whenever got air from down, steered everywhere else than where the driver wanted, nevertheless.

Finally I conclude with my usual apologies for my absence from the website, please believe me I have a lot of commitments and I don't want to delegate someone else a duty that to be genuine needs obviously to be done by myself only.

Concerning this, I leave a picture to you that witnesses my participation to the annual meeting of the thousands and more Scouts of Tuscany, held on Sunday the 11th of May at Loppiano. It's a picture of myself with Don Luigi Ciotti (from the right), Rita Borsellino (sister of the lamented magistrate) and the Honourable Bachelet, son of the famous politician-jurist murdered by 'brigate rosse'.

It has been very nice to take part to it and educational too due to all the things I learnt from the other guests, but most of all it is comforting to see that there are still a lot of 'clean faced' boys that use their enthusiasm towards life to get cracking.

Finishing with their motto, that for the occasion I 'steal' them: "Buona strada a tutti!"

(Have a nice road everybody)
