Paolo Morganti wins 2016 Pacific Cup

Paolo Morganti wins 2016 Pacific Cup

The 2016 Pacific Cup was held this past weekend. The fast track offered high speed sweepers, a wide open chicane and a couple of hairpins, making it tricky to find the best setup in order to go fast but not destroy the tyres, specially in the GT class. The schedule was pretty straight forward with practice on Friday, qualifiers on Saturday and finals on Sunday. In the GT class the race was on between Fabrizio Martello and Paolo Morganti, the later having some setup issues during the qualifiers so Paolo had to go through the semifinal which gave him some extra time to work on the adjustments. Both ran 1-2 in the opening stages of the main final until Fabrizio ran into some problems. This gave Paolo the lead and the ability to focus on build an advantage and at the same time save as much tyre as possible. The strategy paid off and after a trouble free one hour final, Paolo was able to take the win from Fabrizio Martello in second and Rino Lino in third.
