Paolo Morganti wins Rd1 in Florida

Paolo Morganti wins Rd1 in Florida

The super competitive Florida race series started the 2010-11 Season last weekend at the newly paved and renovated Homestead RC Super Raceway host of next year’s 1/8th Scale Nitro Worlds in April. The 1/8th scale finals was a four car battle early on with Joaquin Desoto falling back a bit turning it into a 3 car battle. Sean Lue developed engine problems about halfway and so it was down to Paolo Morganti and Roniel Regalado. Morganti was clearly the fastest car but a tire stop and some unscheduled pit stops made for a very entertaining final as he pushed hard to reduce the gap. Morganti caught Regalado with about 5 minutes to go and never looked back. Desoto finished 3rd but was later found to be 15 grams too light, elevating Tony Rice to the final podium spot. TQ DJ Apolaro had problems and dropped out early.
