Mattia Pesenti wins Swiss Rd2 in Lostallo

Mattia Pesenti wins Swiss Rd2 in Lostallo

During last weekend about 22 drivers in V10-200mm, 31 Amateurs and 20 Experts in V8 took part in the 2nd round of the Swiss Nationals in Lostallo. The weather forecast was not so good but it turned out to be nice, with the sun strong enough to give drivers mostly dry conditions. The team from MRCU once again made a good job and organized the race very well. Thanks to the team.

After raining the whole night the track lost a little bit the grip but during the day it increased so that every driver had good conditions. The favorite drivers Mattia Pesenti (Mugen, Novarossi), Marco Müller (Velox, Max) and Simon Kurzbuch (Velox, Chief Engine Max) made good qualification heats. Mattia had some difficulties with his Mugen trying to find the best setup but was always slower than other Mugen Drivers like Silvio Hächler and Luca Martinelli. So he ended on 7th position after qualification. It was always nice to see the older drivers like Jürg Nydegger (Velox, Chief Engine Max) and Luca are fast enough to compete for going on the podium.

Qualifying Ranking:
1. Marco Müller (Velox, Max)
2. Simon Kurzbuch (Velox, Chief Engine Max, Contact)
3. Silvio Hächler (Mugen, Novarossi)
4. Luca Martinelli (Mugen, Max)
5. Jürg Nydegger (Velox, Chief Engine Max)
6. Mattia Pesenti (Mugen, Novarossi)
7. Daneil Born (Mugen, Max)
8. Remy Hasler (Mugen, Max)
9. Michael Henzi (Capricorn, Chief Engine Max)
10.Renato Ali (Mugen)

Mattia worked on his car on Sunday morning and the performance started to increase. In the semifinal he started with very big tires and the car was quite strange to drive and also very difficult. But at the end he finished on 1st position. Mattia started behind on 6th position and crashed with Remy Hasler in the first corner. Also Simon Kurzbuch was involved in that crash and his car had problems after and he couldn’t compete for the win.

Jürg Nydegger had some problems with the receiver batteries and couldn’t finish the A-Main. Mattia Pesenti lost in the beginning of the run a lot of positions but after 10min he was again on 3rd position while Marco Müller was on the top position about 5 turns ahead. His car went really fast and the Max engine very well. He had the fastest lap with 20.177. Unfortunately he had some difficulties so Mattia Pesenti could take the lead and finished as the winner of the 2nd Swiss Nats in Lostallo.
