Months of work and "only" three days of Italian baja, from today to Saturday. Were it possible, you can be sure that the Fuoristrada Club 4x4 Pordenone would like a weeklong race, compatible with a grueling preparatory effort. Because those who live behind the scenes of the organization can tell you how many "details" a major international race demands, all the more so considering that most of them are volunteers and an amateur sports association holds the reins. That said, the main 2024 change is that it is not competing for the World Cup, but for the Fia European Cup in deference to an alternation of trials on the old continent. But there are still 71 competitors entered in total, meaning there has been no drop from the last rainbow edition.

And this year (another novelty) the Italian Baja will also be proof of the Hungarian Championship, as well as the Italian Cross Country Baja and Ssv. So at the start will parade numerous Magyar crews with prominent names such as Miroslav Zapletal (H3 Evo) and Imre Varga (Toyota Hilux Overdrive) already seen several times in action on Cosa and Tagliamento. Local drivers and navigators will also seek a starring cutout, namely Federico Buttò (Can Am), Andrea Tomasini (Can Am) and Claudio Allegranzi (Suzuki Vitara) at the wheel, Mirko Brun, Stefano Lovisa, , Roberto Marzocco, Angelo Mirolo, Chiara Zoppellaro and Sandra Castellani at the notes.

Today at the Interporto di Pordenone there will be competitors' sports checks and technical checks of the vehicles. Tomorrow morning, from 9 a.m. to noon, the shake down in San Martino al Tagliamento. Then in the afternoon, first the drivers' press conference at 3 p.m., then the official start at 5 p.m. and then the start of the prologue (12 km) at 6 p.m. On Saturday, three passes on the long selective sector (95 km) are scheduled, with the first competitor starting at 8 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. In the evening, prize-giving and press conference at the Interporto.
