This past weekend the Capricorn Trophy for 1/8th and 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road cars was held at the track of Melzo in Italy. The race saw the attendance of many fast Italian drivers such as Dario Balesti, Daniele Ielasi and Francesco Tironi. In the 1/8th class it was that Francesco Tironi who took the pole position in front of Dario Balestri with both showing a great performance in the final but a servo failure caused a DNF for Dario making way for Francesco (Capricorn) who won in front of Claudio Codazzi (Capricorn) and Massimo Aliprandi (Mugen).
