Davide Ongaro gets the job done at The Italian Job

The annual The Italian Job Race was held this past weekend at ehe Tracciato Piemontese di Balocco track and it was Team Associated’s Davide Ongaro with the TQ and win in the 1/8th Nitro Buggy Pro F1 and Electric classes. Davide swept qualifying in both categories with Xray’s Marco Baruffolo coming in 2nd in Nitro Buggy as Tekno’s Alex Zanchettin came in 2nd after the qualifiers on the E-Buggy class. The Nitro A-main was slightly affected by rain but this did not stop Davide from bringing home another popular win this season with Radiosistemi driver, Leonardo Valente, coming in 2nd as Alex Zanchettin (Tekno) rounded out the top 3 results. Runner-up after the qualifiers, Marco Baruffolo was able to chase Davide in the opening 30 minutes, however technical issues forced Marco to retire and he eventually finished 13th overall. The single 10-minute E-Buggy A-main at first saw Ongaro and Zanchettin fight for the lead but Davide held his nerves together as Alex had some mishaps as he tried to put the leader under pressure. Ultimately it was Davide with a second win this weekend, leaving behind SWorkz’s Martin Wollanka on a popular 2nd place as Marco Baruffolo ended up in 3rd overall.
