REMO crossed the finish line 50th out of 102 cars.Lorenzo says, "We had an epic time! My highlight was after 6 hours just in the middle of the race on the mountain Pass Pordoi at over 2km above sea level. Outside there was 2 metres of snow, the snow was everywhere! Temperature was -12 degrees Celsius. It was a unique experience!"
