The opening round of the Florida Nitro Series was held in Fort Myers last weekend in 1/8th Open, 1/8th GT and 1/10th Sedan classes. The latter saw Paolo Morganti taking the TQ and win in the 30-minute main final. Rafael Angulo, coming from the 3 spot, would snatch the runner-up spot as Jose Sanchez Jr. completed the podium result in 3rd for a Capricorn 1-2-3. Over in the GT8 class it was Rino Lino, who qualified only on the 9th spot, who would take the win some three laps in front of Avery Pierce. Top qualifier, Hector Montaner had to settle for 3rd overall, making it an all-IGT8 podium.
