Fabio Boero wins Rd1 in Italy

Fabio Boero wins Rd1 in Italy

The Italian 1/8th buggy Nationals got underway this weekend at the Valley Sporting Club in Alberobello in the very south of the country. Reigning champion Riccardo Rabitti managed to TQ the event with his Picco powered Losi, ahead of Mugen/Reds Racing driver Fabio Boero, with multiple Champion Davide Tortorici in 3rd. Things would go badly for Rabitti in his semi final, a number of problems in his race saw him lose too much time and so failed to bump into the main event. Fabio Boero would start from the pole position for the hour long race, with Carlo Jacopini lining up just behind him. In the race itself, it was Riccardo Perin that took the early lead, while behind it was Jacopini in 2nd being chased by a hard recovering Boero who had lost a lot of time on lap 2. Just before the half way point Perin hit trouble, and with Boero up to 2nd he was able to pounce and take the lead, which he held on to until the end. Davide Tortorici took 2nd place, passing Fabrizio Teghesi a few laps before the end, demoting the Kyosho driver to 3rd spot by the flag.
