italian-championship

 

Last weekend there was the last race of the UISP Italian championship. When we arrived, on the Saturday, we opt to use the Blockade X3 with both machines, finishing the qualifications on the 6th place with nitro and 2nd with brushless. Sunday morning during the final with the brushless, the choose of the Blockade X3 allowed me to do a fantastic race, winning the second place and with this victory I win the ITALIAN BRUSHLESS CHAMPIONSHIP. In the afternoon there was the nitro finals. During the race started a persistent rain and despite that the track was very wet I reach the 100% from my machine thanks to a wonderful grip. I arrived on the 3rd place, after the technical stop for much rain. I win also in this category BUGGY NITRO F1 the 2nd PLACE OF THE ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP.

Thanks to PRO-LINE for the excellent products.

Saturday there was the finals, the temperature was too high, we decided to use the FUGITIVE X1, and did some upgrade to the setup of the machine, finishing at the 3rd place in the final.

RPQ1

Last weekend 6th/7th August we was at the 3rd meeting of the Italian Championship, categories 1:8 Nitro Buggy and E-Buggy.

From Saturday looking on the circuit, our choose for both categories was to use the BLOCKADE X3 that allowed me to run very fast despite the dust on the track.

On Sunday the circuit had a lot of grip so we use the HOLE SHOT X3 that helped me to do good qualifications. At the end, I was at the 3rd place in the E-Buggy and with the Nitro in the 6th position, because I had a little accident so I couldn’t contend for the first positions.

Thanks to PRO-LINE for the excellent  products.

Riccardo Pasquetto Last Sunday (2016, 19th june) there was the Bittycontest, famous European race Nitro 1:8. From the Friday we noticed big difficulties to choose the tyres, because the circuit was too erosive.

Saturday we opted for the FUGITIVE X3, very fast and with a big stability. Sunday, during the semifinal, we have chosen the BLOCKADE X3 that gave me the opportunity to obtain the semifinal.

During the final race our choose was BLOCKADE X3 that allowed us to run very fast and leave the group and fight until the end for the first place. I closed the race at the 3rd place.

Many thanks to PRO-LINE RACING!

Last weekend there was the Racingarden Trophy 1:8 Nitro and E-Buggy.

During the morning’s qualifications we decided for the Fugitive X3 and for the half part our choose was quite right.

In the afternoon I choose to use the Blockade X3 in both machines that allowed me to run very fast and constant  and at the end to gain in the two classes the podium – the 1st place in F1 with TLR 4.0 Nitro and the 3rd place with the TLR 4.0 E-Buggy.
