Nejc Mihelič wins TopRC Track Masters Rd1

Nejc Mihelič wins TopRC Track Masters Rd1

The first round of TopRC Track Masters 2016 was held in Cervignano, Italy in dry and nice weather all weekend. Nejc Mihelič took the TQ in the 1/8th nitro on-road class following by Jernej Vuga and Herfried Pucher. In the main A final we saw different tyre and pitting strategies among the favourites. Mihelic made an early mistake and had a coming together with another driver, which allowed Vuga to lead by a few seconds over Mihelic and Pucher. Pucher’s strategy to refuel one more time and only change the outside tires came to an end when he had a coming together with another driver. Mihelic did a very fast full tyre change meaning he had to come back from a full lap and a few seconds while Vuga took the risk with no tyre change. Mihelic’s strategy paid off in the last minute by overtaking Vuga. It was Nejc Mihelič (ARC/Picco) who took the win and the best lap of the weekend, closely followed by Vuga and Stefano Restivo.

Thanks to Nejc Mihelič for the report.
