In the first championship Matteo Beretta and Joel Camathias close in fourth position after eight podium (two times at Jerez, Silverstone and Barcelona and one time in the Algarve and Spa) and a victory in Race 1 at Silverstone, in the GTS class.
Very similar fate in the Italian GT where Beretta, this time paired with Gianluca Carboni, closes in 5th position. In this case, no victories, but consolation comes from the double second place in the temple of speed: Monza.
At Monza, on the podium in race 2, the Orlando Redolfi’s team places a second car with the crew of Fabio Babini and Riccardo Bianco.
Gianluca Carboni unfortunately closes in second position in the Pirelli Cup, one point away from the title.
Special mention for Emanuele Romani competing for more than half of the season by collecting different points and trying to improve his feeling with the GT3, coming from the world of the Cup.
The TTP instead gives the triumph in the overall standings at the duo of Giuseppe Ghezzi and Manuele Mengozzi that dominates the season winning on the circuit of Mugello and Imola. The team of Matteo Beretta and Enea Casoni wins on the track of Adria.
Last positive note is the second place in the Porsche Cup Matteo Beretta.


This is the year of the triumph in the Spanish GT Championship with the couple Tutumlu – Deverikos that conquers both the overall standing and the Copa de Espana Super GT.
In Italy instead Autorlando – Sport, with the duo-Ghezzi Broggian, won the Targa Tricolore Porsche in the GT Open Cup Trophy – Class GT2 – R1.
In the International GT Open, the team from Bergamo plays still a leading role; the couple Tutumlu – Deverikos collects a win at Jerez in race1, a 2nd place at Spa and a double-3rd place in the two races of the Portuguese circuit of Algarve. In the same league with the suit of the team of Orlando Redolfi, will take part for a handful of races also Jeroen Bleekemolen, Emilio Di Guida and the young Antonio Spavone.

In the International GT Sprint Series the Autorlando – Sport confirms the good performance of the last year with Glauco Solieri who fights until the last round of the championship for the win and have to “settle” the 2nd place overall and class (GTS 3). 4th place for the team.


After a season full of successes and podiums, the titles of the GTS class and teams fade away in the last appointment of Montmelo of the International GT Open. Archie Hamilton and Marco Mapelli close in third position, after the victories on the Portuguese circuit of Algarve and the British Brands Hatch and other three podiums (2nd place in Portugal, Hungary and Italy). Just the English track sees on the podium another couple of drivers dressed with the Autorlando’s blue and white: in race2, in addition to the victory of Hamilton-Mapelli, go up on the 3rd step Matteo Beretta and Marcello Puglisi. The two later also reap a victory in France on the Paul Ricard circuit, another 3rd place in Hungary and even a victory in Monza, always in the GTS class.
Glauco Solieri tries again with the International GT Sprint Series. This time only collects podiums: 4 times 3rd place (Monza, Pergusa, Imola and Hungaroring) and 2 times 2nd place (Monza and Pergusa). In the end it will be 3rd place overall and 2nd in the GTS class 2, with the team that ended in third place.
The Targa Tricolore Porsche, however, still gives smiles at Orlando Redolfi’s team with the final victory of Massimo Valentini with the Porsche GT3 Cup Porsche GT3 category in MY 2012 class R-09.
Another victory vanishes in the last race of the championship.

Within the rally Salvatore Riolo Maurizio Marin and get a prestigious victory at the 25th International Rally of Messina on Corolla WRC. While the team collects several podiums and placings throughout Italy.


The Team AutOrlando – Sport, is present in the 2002 season in the higher forces in the international arena, in relation to the decision to prioritize the activities velocistica circuit compared to that rally. The stable of Orlando Redolfi has designed a new racing department in its “factory” of Pedrengo, near Bergamo, which will allow it to cure the development and support of a second car, the Porsche 996 GT3 RS 2002 that will engaged in the FIA ​​GT Championship with Toto Wolff and Philipp Peter, and in the Targa Tricolore Porsche Championship with Claudio Meddi and Richard Schmid.
In the FIA ​​GT Championship team and the crew have thrived on all the success in Oschersleben.
The season sees the team AutOrlando in 3rd place in the ranking of Team N-GT. The same car sponsored Ademars Piguet with pilots Claudio Meddi and Richard Schmid was great protagonist of the Targa Tricolore Porsche Championship which saw Claudio Meddi winner of the GT class. Excellent results of the team in the management of private cars as the Supercup Giovenzana, the Carrera Rs Argenti.
Also important was the management of Porsche cars in the Championship Formula Club.
As for the season’s rally after the great disadvantage that cars AutOrlando team sports have suffered (class A8) in the 2002 season, it can be said that the rally was attended proved more than competitive with the successes in the rallies of Bergamo , Valcamonica, Fabaria.


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.


The year 1999 for Team Orlando will be a winner on all fronts. Galli Livigno participates in the Snow and Ice Trophy winning the 4th place overall and third in class with the Celica ST 185. The Team Orlando prepares the prototype on the basis of the Celica ST 185 for Emilio Rizzi pilot Piacenza specialist in slalom and formula challenge. After a hesitant start (previous year ran with a X1 / 9) results in the end will give reason to preparer for the success of the car developed from race to race, and the pilot end of the year with 9 nine 1st class won the Italian Formula Challenge, excelling in various competitions Slalom. No program for rallies but the goodness of the Celica Orlando lead to the factory two good drivers, the Venetian Gian Paolo Basso with Beppe Adriollo and Bergamo Ilario Nodal Adrioletti with Paul, they are awarded the 7th place at the Mille Miglia race Italian Championship, the first absolute position in the home rally (Rally of Bergamo) also participate in the Rally of Valtellina stopped from going off the road after mid-race run in the top of the big. Basso meanwhile after a 4th overall in Belluno and nine years after his first Absolute wins the Rally Monte Avena, pleased with the performance of the machine part in the International Rally of Bassano the third position. Even the cop flying Dainesi renews confidence in Orlando that offers a Celica updated and evolved that allows two absolute positions and the final victory of the Challenge of Police. Also significant is the victory of Piacenza Franco Leoni, who wins the Valleys Piacentine after 12 years from his 1st success on the same roads. In all five wins prestigious for Team Orlando that is presented in Monza with the car for the 2000 season comes from the prestigious Cologne Corolla WRC in the hands of Andrea Dalla Villa sailed by Daniele Vernuccio win the 4th place overall just seconds from the first places, (only two trials were in command of the end of the Rally), anticipating a great season 2000. The team has also followed an Escort Coswort of Gr N for Fabio Bonotto (car unusual for Orlando) with mixed results.
In the field track back from a winning season there are big news, in addition to the reappointment of Schmid. First, the advent of a super-powerful 993 GT2 with the gentleman driver Gabriele Sabatini for a year of apprenticeship with the car and circuits, and from a 2000 endurance races in various European racing, not to forget the presence of Franzoni a Carrera Cup and Vigano with the Rs / Cs, former Huyer. At year end, a good second place for Schmid in Supercup, a second and third place with Vigano and Franzoni in the cup.


The 1998 season has plans for Team Orlando participation in the Trophy Tradition Earth with the crew Pasquali-Baggio and Dainesi Donini-Italian Cup 2nd area both at the wheel of the Celica ST 205. In anticipation of these races the preparer updates the car for the new experience on dirt roads and new solutions to the asphalt. On the track, continue with the development of the Supercup and Rs 993 / Cs in the new season of the Porsche Targa Tricolore. The results are good for the team with the victory of Fabio Villa and second place in the class of Richard Schmid Supercup (fought until the last race) with three 1st ass. for the first (Misano-Mansion-Le Castellet) and a win for the second (Mugello). Giuseppe Giovenzana with his trusts 993 Rs / Cs has swept the classroom Cup winning all the races on the program, and Mario Huyer came third with some good race results. The commitment both economically and technically developed by Team Orlando for the TTT and for the pilot begins Pasquali unfortunately with the withdrawal for the viscous coupling to the first race of Castelfalfi. Then a 3rd ass. Adriatic and a 2nd ass. the Vulture. But problems working fans cause for Pasquali there is more time for the championship and not giving the opportunity to the team to be able to enhance the competitiveness of the Celica on gravel surfaces. The beginning of Paul Dainesi (cop Cremona) vice versa (sailed by Donini) is winning, in fact, won the rally of Police and is his first ever victory. Arriving always on the podium in successive races and demonstration of reliability and competitiveness convince Claudio DeCecco strong rider from Friuli to return to the team where he was the star in 1995 and to continue its participation in the CIR judging the Celica suited to continue the championship, win also the home race (rally Carnia), the International Ciocchetto, and the third ass. the Memorial Bettega run invitational. Even the Swiss pilots join the Team Orlando. One is that Philip Phatthey experiences with the “old” Celica 185 (two races in Switzerland) and then a 4th ass. the Carnia with the 205 st and then presented to the Valais Olivier Burri driver Swiss champion, who won the rally of the tap (played to become familiar with the Celica). The Swiss race valid for the European Championship became a triumph for Burri after a grueling battle with last second Cyrelle Henny and a retreat for Phatthey in an off the road. At year end, you count for Team Orlando seven overall wins: one for Dainesi-Leoni-Dionysius and two for Burri-DeCecco


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
– Falleri Rally Carnival with Toyota ST 185

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.
