Andrea Pirani TQs and wins at Fiesta Matrix

Andrea Pirani TQs and wins at Fiesta Matrix

ENS podium finisher and Worlds finalist Andrea Pirani completed a clean sweep at the Fiesta Matrix race held last weekend in Valencia, Spain. Hosted by the AUTET club and with the event planned on three days, worrying weather forecasts for Sunday forced the organisers to compress the whole racing action into Saturday. Andrea took the TQ in every round to start first on the grid, followed by Serpent driver Nacho Lopez and the two locals of Signes Rubio and Revert. “Mr. Matrix” himself, Cristian Boni would start fifth on the grid, going on to take the lead in the 45 minutes final thanks to a mistake by Pirani, an then would stay in the first place until the 24 minute mark, when a bad tyre stop would send him back in fourth position. Pirani’s comeback wouldn’t find any resistance, and Andrea was able to put his WRC back on the top after the tyre stops, and went on to win the race with a two laps lead on the ARC debutant Cristiano Sartor and Cristian Boni, who would round up an all-Italian Podium.

The 200mm class saw the host Jonnhy Pastor dominate the qualifications, although some problems prevented him from battling for the final victory, and it was Raul Almela who managed to put his Xray in front of ENS newcomer Sergi Franch’s Novarossi-powered KM. David Cuesta would round up the podium finishing third. Elsewhere in the Electric Touring Modified class the Ferrando family dominated the event, with Javi taking the TQ honours and Carlos absolutely dominating the finals.
