Nicola Ometto wins Monte-Carlo Cup

The first Monte-Carlo Cup, of which hopes to become an annual event on the classic calendar was run recently on the La Turbie track in the hills above Monte-Carlo. Qualifying for the event saw an Italian domination with Simone Giordano taking the pole position with his Mantua Intrepid from Motonica driver Emanuele Oberto in 2nd and Nicola Ometto, driving another Mantua in 3rd. The start of the 60 minute final saw a good start at the front, but problems for pole man Giordano dropped him down the order. This allowed Ometto to break away at the front and he was able to pull out a commanding lead to win by 7 laps ahead of Simone Zanon in 2nd and Massimo Poldi in 3rd, all driving the Mantua, which in fact took the first 7 positions in the final.
