Nico Catelani wins F1 class at Trofeo Automodelli

Nico Catelani wins F1 class at Trofeo Automodelli

The Trofeo Automodelli was held at RcLandia, Scandino, the venue of the 2014 1/12th EFRA European Championships. Beside a touring car modified and 13.5T class also a 21.5T blinky F1 class on Ride R1 tyres was run. The category saw Fenix driver Matteo Berlincioni setting the pace and claiming the pole position with an impressive 36 laps in 10.10.323, but he was chased by his team mate Nico Catelani who was only 2 seconds behind. Coming in 3rd further 8 seconds down was Luca Torreggiani. After qualifying the A-final had a massive amount of national talents to offer in the form of Luca Torreggiani, Paolo Bottignol, Andrea Aquilino, Davide Carbone, Riccardo Monzani, Andrea Selva, Davide Campanini and Stefano Luppi. During practice and qualifying it became obvious that the long heats were extremely hard for the tyres making the right tyre treatment crucial for everyone with winning ambitions.

In the first A-final Nico Catelani coming from second on the grid was well prepared taking the win over Matteo Berlincioni with current UISP F1 Rubber Champion Davide Campanini claiming third. In A2 Nico again came in first, handing him the day’s win early. One lap down Luca Torreggiani finished the leg in second place. With the first place already decided Nico choose not to start so it was his team mate Matteo Berlincioni who took profit of this situation taking the win in A3. He was followed by Andrea Aquilino, reigning UISP F1 Foam Champion.
