Balestri again in Q2

Balestri again in Q2

Dario Balestri made it two from two on the opening day of the Euro Nitro Series in Bologna when the Capricorn driver overcame difficult conditions to top a late run Q2 from WRC’s Andrea Pirani and the Shepherd of defending champion Simon Kurzbuch.   With rain effecting what was orginally planned to be a day of practice and with more rain forecast for tomorrow, championship organisers were forced to run two qualifiers at the L.Collari RC Raceway but with light fading fast the top heat of 1:8 drivers found themselves running in the dark with only the front side of the track having lighting.  Such was the low light that although 3rd fastest in the top group Francesco Tironi would end up only 8th fastest overall while Robert Pietsch and Lamberto Collari found themselves outside the Top 10 as they struggled with visibility.

Leino takes Q2 in Bologna

Leino takes Q2 in Bologna

fri_balestri-620x372

Making the switch to 1:8 for this season’s Euro Nitro Series, a number of key drivers changing over as it is a 1:8 World Championship year, Dario Balestri has topped the opening round of qualifying at L.Collari RC Raceway. Racing at the home track of Lamberto Collari, the 2014 ENS 200mm race winner TQ’d the first qualifier of a rain affected day by 0.360 of a second from the 9-time World Champion with WRC’s Andrea Pirani completing the Top 3.  For last year’s title protagonists Simon Kurzbuch and Robert Pietsch the round would see them both have engine issues.  For Pietsch a flame out on his out lap cost the Mugen driver a run while Kurzbuch’s engine would run out of fuel on the last lap however such was the champions pace he managed to get the 6th fastest time.

Mazzeo takes opening ENS qualifier

fri_alessio-620x372

2013 European Champion Alessio Mazzeo has TQ’d the opening round of 200mm qualifying at the Euro Nitro Series season opener in Bologna, Italy.  With rain affecting the schedule for the first official day of the event, when qualifying did get underway on a dry track it was the championship debutant who put his Serpent at the top of the times.  Just 0.185 behind, last year’s Round 1 Top Qualifier Teemu Leino would post the second fastest time with the Top 3 being completed by Mazzeo’s Serpent team-mate Dominic Greiner.  It was a poor start to qualifying for reigning Champion Eric Dankel and World Champion Alexander Hagberg as they managed only the 9th and 19th fastest times respectively.
