Dario Balestri takes EFRA 1/8th IC Track title

The 2019 EFRA 1/8th IC Track European Championships were held in Montbonnot-Saint-Martin, France this past weekend. In the EC-A category it was Infinity’s Dario Balestri with the overall TQ, after winning two of the five qualifying rounds from Shepherd’s Simon Kurzbuch, who also scored to round TQ as Carmine Raiola (Infinity) came in 3rd, winning a single qualifier. The Super Pole race then went in Simon’s favour who took the win to start from 2nd into the 45-minute A-main encounter with Simon being able to build up pressure on his rival Dario right from the start. The lead changed several times and the fair duel between the permanent rivals lasted until the very last lap. After 45 minutes Dario won by just a few car lengths in front of Simon making this European Championship final one of the most exciting ones. In 3rd it was Infinity’s Jilles Groskamp with the final podium spot, coming from 10th on the grid.
