Infinity’s Carmine Raiola was the crowned the 2024 AMSCI Italian National 1:10 Nitro Touring Champion over the weekend at the Roger Track 2.0 in Marigliano.  Qualifying for the title race would see Raiola secure the TQ, after topping 3 of the four rounds, ahead of team-mate Dario Balestri.  An impressive qualifying performance by the BMT of Ciro Mollo would secure him third on the grid for the 45-minute final.  Continuing his form into final setting the fastest lap, Raiola would cruise to victory over the Xray of Mario Spiniello by almost 2-laps, Spiniello having a strong final having qualified P9.  Unfortunately for Balestri and Mollo their races would end prematurely, the pair making contact and eventually retiring within 1-minute of each other as the race entered the final 5-minutes.  In the end it was the Xray of Francesco Pierella which completed the podium.  In the Sport Category, it was Ciro Borrelli who took the title also driving an IF15-2.
