Last weekend at the Cassino track in the south west of the country, saw the ATS trophy race held for both 1/8th scale and 1/10th 200mm. Despite being run on the same weekend as the French EFRA GP the event attracted a lot of top drivers, as is to be expected in Italy, and in the end of the 1/8th scale final it was former European B champion Andrea Cristiani, racing for Serpent that took the win ahead of Stefano Solaroli racing a Mugen in 2nd, while current European Champion Fabio Domanin came home 3rd, also with a Serpent.
Italian tire manufacturer ATS have announced the release of a number of new products for both off road and general use. First up are these very unique foam truggy tires, created in 56mm width and in 130mm tire diameter, they will be available in both hard and medium compounds and should allow your truggy to tear up the tarmac. Next up is the announcement that ATS will enter the buggy tire market and they are currently testing rims and compounds and will launch with 3 compounds called Sticky, Adherence and 1600, expect to see them available soon. ATS have also released a range of clutch bell housings for off road and rally game that come in both closed and open finish and in a number of different teeth amounts. Finally comes the release of cleaning putty, similar to that sold by Serpent, that comes in a handy little tub and helps remove oil and other crap from your car.
