Morganti doubles at Florida Nitro Series Rd3

Round 3 of the Florida Nitro Series was hosted by Homestead RC Raceway. The 1/10th 200mm Sedan class was the one with more participants, since the drivers are using any chance they have to practice and setup their cars for the upcoming Worlds in October. Capricorn’s DJ Apolaro took the TQ from Paolo Morganti 2nd and Lazaro Alonso 3rd, making it an all-Capricorn top 3. The final was super close and exciting. At the beginning it looked like DJ had the advantage with a pit stop less and with a couple of mistakes from Paolo. But then disaster struck. The second gear on DJ’s failed and he had to race the last part of the race only in first gear. The race was super exciting to watch and was decided actually in the last minute. But was not a walk in the park for Paolo, since he was running out of tyres and had a massive understeer, making the car super slow on the right turns. When all was set and done Paolo was able to cross the finish line in first, just 0.2 tenth of a second front of DJ. Eduardo Cabal (Serpent) came in 3rd, a lap down on DJ as Lazaro finished in 4th from Rafael Angulo 5th.

In the 1/8, the race was a one way street. Paolo took his Capricorn from pole to victory with Franco Desiderio 2nd, seven laps behind, as Rob Crawford completed the top3, another two laps down.
