Hot Race Beach Cup 2016 – Riccione, Italy

hotrace253

Wonderful hot weather, friends, race, drinks and sun…these are the components we needed to start the Hot Race Beach Cup in the amazing Road Race Riccione RC Circuit Marco Simoncelli track in Italy.

About one hundred drivers from 7 different nationalities came here to have fun together, because that is exactly the spirit of this event. The Hot Race company manages to give a summer breath in a place of competition.

The drivers had the chance to practice the whole day of Friday, beating high temperatures with iced cocktails and refreshing music in the comfortable lounge area organized at the track.

Intro

 

After a successful day of training on the RC cars, the drivers had the chance to race behind another wheel, the one of a go-kart in the famous Misano Circuit. Divided into 2 groups, over and under 80 kg, the drivers had an hour full of adrenaline. The qualification was 5 minutes long followed by 12 laps final. hotrace98
