Two works Grande Punto Abarth S2000s will participate in Madeira Rally, the seventh round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge which will take place from Thursday 30 July to Saturday 1 August on the Portuguese Island in the Atlantic. The cars will be entrusted to the crews composed of Giandomenico Basso/Mitia Dotta and Luca Rossetti/Matteo Chiarcossi.

Simultaneously, young Finn Anton Alén and co-driver Timo Alanne will enter Rally Finland, a round of the World Rally Championship scheduled at the same dates, in a Grande Punto Abarth S2000. Ferrari pilot Kimi Räikkönen will drive a similar car. Being a big fan of rally, the Finn couldn't resist the attraction of the most important competition in his native country. His co-driver will be Kaj Lindström.
