About Marcelo

With almost 15 years of experience, Marcelo has rallied in three different continents. Until 2019, the Italian-born co-driver was a regular in South American rallies, where he competed with a multitude of local drivers. Marcelo first appeared in WRC in the 2011 edition of Rally Argentina. The seasoned co-driver has contested a whole host of regional and international championships, and was crowned winner of the Clio Trophy in 2022.

Marcelo embarked on his Hyundai Motorsport journey with Fabrizio Zaldivar in that same year. Since then, the pair have undertaken campaigns in the WRC2 and CODASUR championships with our i20 N Rally2.
