The year 2001 has just begun and the team is already in full swing. There is the important participation in the Monte Carlo Rally with the strong Swiss driver Burri (old acquaintance of the team) with the Corolla that has since been evolved both electronic mechanics. Unfortunately, it ended with a retreat for a hit when he was in seventh place overall (the race is valid for the World Rally Championship). Also a new Porsche GT32R / Ngt entrusted to the precious care of Orlando by Camathias Swiss entrepreneur (and gentleman driver) to take the child in the world with various FIA GT Drivers’ (Peter-Ceccotto-Werner-Church-Zampedri) season will be with two first positive absolute in n / gt, Monza (I) and at the Nurburgring (D) and a seventh abs. in the final team. At the same league was also attended by Sabatini and Spinelli with their trusts GT2 that has had changes in the body and electronics, and after a brilliant sixth overall in Monza (with Villa as third driver) could be seen compromised the season with a disastrous off track Magny Cours. It also continues the program in the Targa Tricolore Porsche lands where a new driver with a 996 for the trophy Supersprint. Furio Bassoons will prove valid and winning the championship and at the end will be his first place, with eight wins from as many races entered, while Silver will conquer the second place in the Carrera RS Trophy, with the same 993 the year before, the same result that got Giovenzana with miglioratissima 996 GT3 supercup. Too bad that one off the track in the trials of the last race at Misano (with Villa, who together with Schmid-Guagliardo and Meddi have divided the interior with strong driver from Milan) has been unable to defend the primacy in the trophy GT3 (wrecked car). Rally in the season continued with Danes (the cop wheel) with the ever reliable Celica ST 205, which will participate in racing area and with various placings and the superb victory in the Rally of the Police Forces will win the challenge dedicated to them. They win also Ferrecchi-Leoni with the ever green Celica, and even Burri is repeated three years later in the rally of Valais (valid for Europe) with the Corolla WRC. Finally, yet another victory with the GRA Celica ST 185 Rizzi in Italian Championship slalom and third overall.
The 2000 vintage is important for Team Orlando, in fact, it had never happened to have a well-defined program such as the one signed with Claudio DeCecco; all the Italian Rally Championship. For this reason it is coming in the second Corolla WRC to meet the numerous requests for rental Car World Rally Champion 1999. DeCecco paired with Alberto Bargelli end the season in fourth place overall in the CIR with good positions and three wins L police-Carnia- Vallelunga rally of the Italian Cup. Zanchi also win in Valtellina (after 12 years from his first ass.) And Leoni Oltrepò Pavese. The same pilot gets two stunning victories with the legendary Celica ST 205 suitably improved for the new year from Orlando and rilevatasi very competitive races for the Italian Cup. At year end, the beautiful pearl scored by Roberto Tononi and Paul Comini that go on to win the Rally of Castles in San Marino valid for the Italian trophy earth with the Celica, and to mention the brilliant second place of Marco Spinelli (a 1 “7 1 abs.) and the seventh of Nodal with Corolla rally of Monza.
Even on the track there are new; Giovenzana has, with the board of Orlando, purchased a 996 Supercup for the new commitment in the Targa Tricolore Porsche. The car is quite competitive but needs loving care to be able to make the most and, despite the skill of Schmid-Meddi-Sabatini plus Giovenzana there will be improvements in mechanics but few good results, even for the few rides made. Certainly well prepared for a 2001 attack. The other big commitment of Team Orlando was the participation in the FIA GT championship with Sabatini-Spinelli-Villa where provided good performance with the powerful 993 GT2, even on slopes unknown to them. Well Franzoni with Rs / Cs former Giovenzana that ended 3rd Ass. Class Cup the same result obtained by Mauro Argenti new Team rider in the class with a Supersprint Carrera Rs.
In the year 1997 Orlando with a great effort but with the help of constant Sponsors: WHITE, Terme di Trescore, OMCN and Plastotecnica, provides the opportunity for pilots G. Life and E. Mandarin to participate in the Italian Championship using the Toyota Celica ST 205 just arrived from the Toyota Team Europe. Life after a decent start to the season fails to have continuity of participation due to lack of economic support together with some technical problems. Mandarin participates in five races taking good placings in the Rally del Ciocco and Mille Miglia. Less fortunate than the other three competitions: Rally del Salento, Targa Florio and Rally Sanremo, where technical problems and an accident hamper the expectations of the team. The group is joined in this year also Paolo Danesi who manages to steal time to his profession of police officer to participate with the ST185 Toyota Cup races Italy 2nd Zone getting good placements. In the year are won in several first places:
– Busseni Rally Valli Bresciane with Toyota 205 GT FOUR
– Mannarino Rally Valle Canonica with Toyota 205 GT FOUR
– Life in the City of Lucca Rally with the Toyota GT 205 FOUR

And finally great satisfaction is offered to Orlando and all its employees by Spinelli in International Rally of Monza gets off masterfully guiding the perfect Toyota ST 205 GT FOUR beating competition from prestigious Giancarlo Fisichella at the wheel of a Surabu ART. This season will accommodate driving the cars of Orlando also pilots Garosci, Dionisio, Leoni, Frasson, Gamba, Caldani and Daniel Ducruet. The latter gets a brilliant 3rd place in the race of Digne (F) valid for the TTF. Also as part of this trophy participating in the rally of Corsica where he is forced to retire due to electrical problems. The same fate, the withdrawal, but this time because of an accident, awaits him at the Sanremo Rally.
In Targa Tricolore Porsche all the drivers of the previous season confirm their commitment to the team and at the same time Orlando ensures maximum commitment to giving them the best possible care. Locatelli is penalized by absences in the first races of the season, due to work commitments and therefore can not challenge for the title. Villa on the other hand leaves the winning 911 RS to pursue a new experience with the Porsche 996 Super Cup trying to uncover its secrets with the goal to aim for the title 1998. Giovenzana replaces the car Porsche 944 Turbo with the new Porsche Carrera RS / CS, finished 2nd in Class 3 followed by Huyer, who also owned the same car and loyal customer of the Team. This season noteworthy is the success of the couple Villa / Giovenzana to 1,000 KM of Monza held earlier in the season. In class 2 Richard Schmidt with the experience gained in the previous year is imposed on the 2nd place overall. Orlando, Locatelli and Schnmid run 12 hours of Misano where failure to remove the rear bearing 3 participants 4th place overall confining them in 10th position (anch0essa respectable), despite the replacement-time record held by team mechanics. After this experience Schmid starts to compete with the Porsche 996 Super Cup (former Locatelli) giving rise to a fun, fair and exciting challenge with teammate Fabio Villa. All this will ensure to Orlando agguerritissimi two drivers to win the title the following season.
The ’96 season has as main commitment and significant participation in the Italian Championship Rally entrusting one of Toyota ST 185 to the couple Brescia Mannarino / Vernuccio. After an unfortunate start with the withdrawal in the Rally del Ciocco latter win in their home a 4th place of relief in the Rally Mille Miglia and then a further important result with the 3rd place in the Rally del Salento. In the most prestigious race of the season, the Rally of Sanremo, little satisfaction for Team forced to retire with engine failure. The season of the two drivers also includes participation in some Cup races Italy where Toyota ST 185 is first brought to the 2nd step of the podium in the Rally of Valcamonica and then nosed resulting shrinkage in the Rally Valli Bresciane. Other pilot noteworthy that joins the team in the 1996 season to play cup matches Italy 3rd zone is “Ciccio” Dionisio, who get three 2nd places overall (two of them for just one second delay) in their respective races Valle Canonica and Rally of Bergamo. The exclusion, caused by a bureaucratic mistake from the Rally of Valtellina denies him the opportunity to accumulate more important points for the final placement of the area. In Italian Cup 1st zone despite the victory at Carmagnola too many retreats and disastrous, not least in the Rally Team 971, to yield Leoni 2nd place in the final ranking. Another important and welcome presence of this season is that of Nick Busseni, despite that fell into the fray after 8 years of absence from competitive sports, concludes the 3rd place overall on Rally del Casentino behind the twin Toyota ST 185 Frasson well drove, until the place of honor. Orlando also shows off at the wheel of one of his Japanese cars, a good performance finishing in 7th place in the Rally of Monza. A 4th place overall at Targa Florio followed by the 3rd position in the Rally of Ciocchetto and excellent performance at the International Motor Show (with the achievement of the 2nd place in the Challenge CSAI and participation in the preliminary rounds of the Memorial Workshop) is the contribution from Gianluca Life Team, as a presentation program for the next year and at the end of a very rich sports season.
