20 years on & Collari still top of the World

20 years on & Collari still top of the World

The weather forced us to wait a day longer than originally planned but today we got to witness another great World title drive from the master of 1:8 Onroad racing Lamberto Collari and see just why he is the greatest 1:8 driver off all time. Starting the one hour final from second, the Italian drove the perfect race taking his ninth title 20-years on from when he claimed his very first World Championship. Taking the challenge to Top Qualifier, and the only true dangerman, Robert Pietsch in the opening part of the race Collari hit cruise control once he had forced problems on the German. In the end the Kyosho/Novarossi driver took a very comfortable two lap winning margin over American Mike Swauger who came out top of the biggest battle of the race to claim second over former Champion Adrien Bertin.
