Explanation:
The Gorla seems to be a Trophy - see links:

looks like it is also used in English, but you could leave it as Trofeo Gorla, I suppose

that explains the masculine 'al', I imagine - it is followed by an implied 'trofeo'

I think there's a 'che' too many in the sentence, and I'm not sure if that 'deve' is a present with a future sense or a historic present. But it could read, for example: "XXX with his BMW trimaran (or whatever they're called), who will have to be rammed in the Gorla Trophy to keep him off the podium". Presumably XXX is so good, the only way of knocking him off the podium (the final Championship podium, I imagine), is by ramming him out of the race, said jokingly. Or otherwise the ramming actually happened (and deve is a historic present), and it was this that knocked him out of the running.

putting it in the past - "the only thing that prevented XXX with his BMW trimaran from winning a medal was being rammed in the Gorla Trophy"
