Eduardo Giardino wins Argentinean Nationals

Eduardo Giardino wins Argentinean Nationals

This year’s Argentinean Championship race was held at the capital Buenos Aires recently. It was Argentinean Team Shepherd member Eduardo Giardino how claimed the 2010 national title with his Velox V8. The practice started already on Friday, the weather conditions cold and damp in the morning, but in the afternoon the traction came up and Giardino clocked some good lap times. On Saturday qualifying started and in the first round Giardino was very fast, but his transponder didn’t count correctly. The problem was solved for the second round and he had a good run which secured him the second position. Afterward nobody could improve so Giardino lined up second in the grid behind pole-setter Augustin Cutini. The 45 minute final was scheduled for Sunday afternoon. At the start Giardino defended his second position and tried to follow the leader. His strategy was not to change tyres and it worked out quite good and he could hold his second position. When Cutini had an accident, Giardino took over the first position and cruised to the end, winning by two laps over Adrian Frigerio in 2nd and Francesco Rinaldi in 3rd position.
