Michele Romagnoli takes Rd2 in Italy

Michele Romagnoli takes Rd2 in Italy

The 2nd round of the Italian 1/8th scale Nationals was held last weekend in Gubbio and of course featured some of the fastest drivers in the World taking part. Qualifying went the way of Andrea Pirani, with Michele Romagnoli in 2nd, 8-time World Champion Lamberto Collari in 3rd and Fabio Domanin taking the last direct final spot in 4th. The start of the hour long final saw the lead change numerous times, but by half way distance, Collari has established himself in the lead, that was until his engine flamed out at the 45 minute mark, allowing Romagnoli who had had earlier problems, into the lead, only 7 seconds ahead of the World Champion. A further engine flame out gave Michele the breathing room to take home the vicotory, ahead of Fabio Domanin in 2nd and Collari eventually taking 3rd spot.

Thanks to Michele Romagnoli for the report.
