Andrea Ciurlante wins Picco memorial race

Andrea Ciurlante wins Picco memorial race

The Fiorano Modenese track hosted the first edition of the Memoria Gualtiero Picco race that attracted some of the best Italian 1/8 on-road drivers. The weekend was overshadowed by a bit of bad weather but at the end the race went flawless thanks to the great track staff. In qualifying Lamberto Collari took TQ in front of Mirko Salemi and Albert Picco. The final saw the early lead from Collari who was chased by Picco and Salemi. 10 minutes into the race Andrea Ciurlante moved his way up into third spot and shortly after Lamberto had to retire with problems. This handed Albert Picco the lead followed by Cirulante and Marco Vanni. At the 18 minute mark light drizzle stirred things up a bit as the track became very slippery forcing all drivers to change tyres. The conditions gave Andrea and his box stock RX8 the advantage he needed as he easily took the win in front of Marco Vanni and Alberto Picco. The top 5 was completed by Alberto Tedeschi ad Sara Bella.
