Dario Balestri wins 1/8th Rd1 in Italy

The first round of the Italian 1/8th on road Nationals was held last weekend at the Cassino track in the centre of the country. Qualifying went the way of Worlds podium finisher Dario Balestri, driving his Novarossi power Capricorn, ahead of Michele Romagnoli with his Shepherd in 2nd with team mate Andrea Pirani in 3rd and Serpent driver Andrea Cristiani in 4th. With no direct qualifiers as per the new EFRA rules it was semis for the top drivers and it was Lamberto Collari that would take the pole position to line up ahead of Balestri, both drivers winning their respective semi finals. In the 30 minute final it was Dario Balestri that would come out on top, with the qualifying result being reflected in the final standings as Michel Romagnoli was 2nd, 1 lap down, and Andrea Pirani in 3rd a further 3 laps back.
