Kevin Pignotti wins Modified at Italian nationals

The Italian electric on-road nationals was held at the Gubbio track last weekend. This year the championship would be decided in a single event with about 100 participants. The race started with practice sessions on Friday followed by two timed practice sessions and three of five qualifiers on Saturday with the remaining qualifying heats and finals on Sunday. In qualifying Francesco Martini (Xray) took the overall TQ followed by Alessandro Brunelli (Serpent), Kevin Pignotti (Associated) and Diego Macchioni (Xray). A main number 1 had Alessandro Brunelli taking the win in front of top qualifier Francesco Martini while disaster struck for both drivers in leg number two when they had a coming together resulting in 7th and 8th place finishes gifting Diego Macchioni the win from Kevin Pignotti. In the last A main both Francesco and Alessandro again had average runs meaning they would not be able to fight for the title. Kevin Pignotti took the win from Alessandro and Diego handing Kevin the overall win and the 2013 Modified class title. Alessandro was able to take the runner-up spot with Diego Macchioni ending up in third place overall.
