2022 AMSCI EP Nats Rd1 at MonacoRC Arena – Report

This weekend the first round of the AMSCI National Championship took place on the MonacoRC Arena indoor track. Thanks to the asphalt surface of the MonacoRC Arena it was possible to see consistent performance with excellent grip for both days of competition. The event was open to 5 classes, Touring Stock 13.5 F1, Touring Stock 13.5 F2, Modified Touring, Touring FWD 17.5 and F1 21.5. In the Touring Stock 13.5 F1 class, the poleman Federico Barbieri, following an unfortunate first final, managed to take home the victory followed by the ever faster Filippo Domanin who despite his very young age is getting us used to seeing him always high in the standings. Andera Simari completed the podium.

Jacopo Corna manages to take home a second place, starting from the seventh position. Luca Ielasi closes out the podium, another driver to keep an eye on.

The Touring Mod class saw a very high level of drivers not seen for years in a National Championship in Italy. It is immediately clear that the battle for the top positions will be between Michele Manzo (Awesomatix) and Alessio Menicucci (Xray). Mattia Collina is also very close and at his debut with his new Schumacher proves to have found a good feeling. In 4th place was the Italian Campion Berselli (Awesomatix) followed by an always fit Romagnoli (Mugen). Jonatan Gandin as well as Alessio Mazzeo (Serpent) get involved in the electric category and do well. A good Ghilotti (Awesomatix) took 8th who was on the back foot having found the set up of his car too late. A World champion is World champion for life, Daniele Ielasi with his Infinity honoured everyone with his presence and took 9th. Rounding out the top 10, Mirko Salemi with Capricorn has dealt with bad luck.

After the qualifications that see Roberto Fabiano (Xray) impose himself, Gilles Marletta (Awsomatix) manages to take the race home in the finals. Andrea Tonini (Awesomatix) closes out the podium.
