Alessio Mazzeo wins Cassino International race
The Circuit Lamberto Collari in Cassino was the host last weekend to top drivers from across Europe including Pietsch, Wischnewski, Spataro, Balestri, Tironi and others, as they took the opportunity to test ahead of August’s 1/10th 200mm Euros on the same track. Qualifying was dominated by KM driver Dario Balestri followed by another Italian driver Biagio Spataro in 2nd while reigning 1/8th scale World Champion Robert Pietsch was 3rd. On Sunday the two semi-finals were won by Serpent driver Alessio Mazzeo and Xray driver Dirk Wischnewski while problems for Pietsch, Spataro and Balestri in the semis meant they failed to make the final. After an initial battle in the main final between Mazzeo and Wischnewski, it was the Max powered Serpent 747 of Mazzeo that took the win followed by Francesco Tironi (Capricorn) in 2nd and Claudio Culoma (Xray) 3rd.
