Galli suspends 2007 WRC program

Gigi Galli and Aimont Racing Team have announced they are suspending their 2007 WRC program after failing to reach an agreement with a major sponsor.
According to Galli's website, the decision has been taken after careful assessment by both Galli and the team, because they haven’t been able to reach an agreement with an important sponsor that would have supported the driver and the team in the next races.
“I’m really sorry we have been obliged to suspend the program”, said Gigi Galli. “Unfortunately we had no other choice at the moment. I thank Pirelli that has supported me and also ACI CSAI that gave a contribution to this program, as well as Livigno and Valtellina. I’m sorry not to compete in Rally Argentina, a race I’m fond of and I like a lot, also because of the podium place obtained there last year. I’d like to thank the organizers that tried to help me when they heard I was not going to compete there. I also thank all my fans for their constant support”.
“Unfortunately, due to budget problems, we have been obliged to stop the program” said Pierfrancesco Zanchi, Aimont Racing Team manager. “An important sponsor on which we counted, at last turned down its interest. I would like to thank personally all the partners that made this project feasible so far and in particularly Citroen Sport, PH Sport, Pirelli and the Italian Federation ACI CSAI”.
