Carmine Raiola is 2020 Italian National Champion

The Club Automodellisitco 5 Colli in Gubbio played host to the single round Italian 1/8th Nitro Nationals this past weekend. With wet weather all weekend affecting running, it was former World Champion Dario Balestri that came out on top after qualifying taking the TQ spot ahead of Michele Romagnoli, Johnathan Gandin and Carmine Raiola. In the tricky wet 45 minute A-final, preserving tires wa key and Carmine Raiola managed it to perfection, going the full race without changing and managed to just edge out his Infinity team mate Dario Balestri by less than 3 tenths of a second at the end to claim the 2020 title. Shepherd driver Luca Romagnoli would round out the podium in 3rd.
