For the seventh year, Eberhard & Co. was Partner and Official Time Keeper for Rallylegend, held from the 10 to the 13 October in San Marino.

Now in its 17th edition, Rallylegend is an adrenaline-fuelled event where the most beautiful historic rally cars and their contemporary counterparts, raced by the biggest champions of today and yesterday, took on the clock in challenges held on special tracks in the Republic of San Marino.

Rallylegend concluded with the triumph of Belgian driver Thierry Neuville and his co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul in a Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC 1600 in the “WRC” classification. Coming in second place was his team mate at the World Rally Championship Andreas Mikkelsen with Anders Jaeger Amland in a 2016 Hyundai i20 NG.Eberhard & Co. presented the winning team with two chronographs from the Champion V collection on the podium.

Participating at the event was of course Miki Biasion, two-time world rally champion and Brand Ambassador for Eberhard & Co., racing in the 1979 Opel Kadett GTE he drove at the start of his success-filled career to mark the important anniversaries shared with Tiziano Siviero, his historic co-driver, with whom he shares world victories. 

Eberhard & Co. wanted to recognise Miki Biasion and Tiziano Siviero and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the rally racer’s career and the 30th anniversary of his second victory at the Rally World Championship. Director General of Eberhard & Co., Mario Peserico, presented these awards.
