Mattia Collavo grabs Italian 1/8th F1 class title

Mattia Collavo grabs Italian 1/8th F1 class title

Last weekend’s Italian 1/8th Nitro On-road Championship finale not only saw the title decision in the Expert class but also the F1 category title was up for grabs. The championship had to be decided between Mattia Collavo – who took the super pole – and Roberto de Cesare with the fastest driver in qualifying being Valerio Moccia. The start of the final saw no surprises. But 5 minutes into the race de Cesare had a crash and destroyed the rear end of his car which allowed Collavo to back off the throttle and cruise to the title win. At the front it was Luca Martini who took over the lead after Moccia had to retire because of a broken engine. Martini drove an excellent race and crossed the finishing line in first position while Collavo took it easy, finishing in 4th position and scoring enough points to win the Italian Championship in the F1 category.
