Vipal Rubber has a tradition of supporting its business partners and sports competitions on wheels in several countries. Leader in Latin America and one of the main manufacturers of products for tyre retreading and tyre repairs in the world, Vipal is an official sponsor of the driver Fabio Farina, who competes in the Italian Rally Championship 2021 (CIR), the International Rally Cup (IRCup), the Trophy and the Under 25 race. Farina, one of the most outstanding drivers of the new Italian generation in the category, is the son of Luca Farina, owner of Ral Gomme SRL, one of the main tyre retreaders in Italy and a partner of Vipal.
Fabio Farina has been outstanding in all the competitions he has competed in this year. In the month of September, the pilot entered as leader in the Peugeot Trophy, 2nd place in the Under 25 and 3rd in the CIR DUE and 3rd in the IRCup CAT R2B. The Peugeot 208 R2 driven by Farina bears the Vipal Rubber brand on the side of the car in races held throughout the country since March. The next stages foreseen in the calendar are: Rally Due Vally, on October 10th, by CIR, and Rally Città de Bassano, by IRCup, on October 22nd and 23rd. The races are streamed live on CIR's Facebook and Instagram pages and also on RAI Sport TV.
According to the commercial manager of Vipal Europe, Fabricio Nedeff, it is an honor for the company to support the promising driver and invest in this category, which moves thousands of speed enthusiasts throughout Italy. “Fabio is a very talented driver and has the potential to become one of the great European rally championships. This is the first year we've sponsored him and we're already talking to extend our support for the next season,” says Nedeff. "In addition, we have strengthened our partnership with Ral Gomme SRL, a family-owned tyre retreading company, that does a work of excellence in the northern region of Italy," he highlighted. The commercial manager also said that Vipal is very proud to supply its products so that Ral Gomme SRL can always deliver the best to its Italian customers.
Ral Gomme SRL is based in Pietramurata, in the province of Trento. It started its business in 1977. In a short time, it became a small industrial company, always managed by the Farina family. One of the main retreading companies in Italy, Ral Gomme SRL has always used the best raw materials in its production, such as the Vipal Rubber product line. The tread design´s VJ900 and VJ910, suitable for 4x4 vehicles, stand out. Both have excellent performance in severe conditions of use and on off-road courses. In addition to these, designs for winter applications and various tread options for retreading truck tyres are also widely used by the retreader.
