After another outstanding season and his double title (European Champion and Italian Champion), Simone Faggioli and his Norma M20 FC Zytec engine won in the Czech land (Sternberk) of the second edition of the FIA HILL CLIMB MASTER. He beats his eternal rival Christian Merli (Osella) and the 2016 French Vice-Champion Sébastien Petit on the other Norma M20 FC.

Martine Hubert, already 2016 French Champion, also imposes its Norma in the Women’s category.

Simone Faggioli: “This victory, I wanted especially ! There are two years in Eschdorf, I had to bow down and settle for silver. I promised myself that I would have my revenge and victory was my only goal. The fight was great with Christian Merli and I had to give the maximum. This race is unique. Because of its status and will, but also because everything is played on one day and on a shorter course, where any errors are paying dearly. There was so much tension! But everything went perfectly and I am also very pleased to have signed the best time across all categories. European champion, Italian champion and Gold Medalist now … My 2016 season could not be better !”
