Lamberto Collari is European Champion

Lamberto Collari is European Champion

7-time World Champion Lamberto Collari is the 2007 1/8th scale European Champion following a tense battle in todays finals in Lostallo, Switzerland. Qualifying had seen former European Champion Michael Salven on the pole position and a good start in the race saw him in contention for the win ahead of the following pack of Italians, but 2 lengthy stops caused by the throttle linkage ball joint coming off twice meant he was out of contention. This allowed the Italian steam train out in front with an extremely close battle playing out between Collari, who wouldn’t stop for tires, and Alberto Picco right up until the end of the 45 minutes with Collari, driving a Kyosho, taking the win by less than a second ahead of a closing Alberto Picco with the Mugen, while Kyosho racer Francesco Tironi rounded out the podium in 3rd.
