The “Premio Nino Vaccarella” is born, linked to the name of the car champion who died on 23 September at the age of 88. The award was established by the Aci Sport Sicilia delegate / trustee, Daniele Settimo, in agreement with the staff of the regional delegation, and is intended for those who stand out in the Sicilian automotive sports world. The first edition will be the one aimed at 2021, which will be delivered as part of the next regional award ceremony for 4-wheel champions. Giovanni Vaccarella, the son of the “Flying Dean”, immediately offered his collaboration to the initiative. “I wanted the institution of the ‘Nino Vaccarella’ award both to remember the figure of the great sportsman, and for the many sporting successes with which the Professor has always exalted our region, his beloved land, from which he has not never separated – affirms Daniele Settimo -. Furthermore, his action as regional delegate of the then Csai was precious and fundamental. We must give continuity to the memory of a great name and pass on its deeds and memories also to the new sporting talent “. The prize will be awarded as part of all future awards of the Sicilian car championships.
