#1CRIS RC Trophy

02.10.2016


The first event of CRIS RC Trophy is taking place in the Mini Racing Ayrton Senna track in Melzo near Milan.

This track hosted the ENS Round 1 in 2014 and in the last two years the staff worked incredibly hard to improve the track facilities and let the asphalt conditions stay perfect. A brand new bar restaurant has been opened and inside the racing atmosphere is still visible, in fact RC bodies are hanged on the walls and there is a Mini-Z circuit with battery chargers.

Weather conditions were at first in the morning not beautiful as wished, but even if the sun was a bit shy during the day around 40 European drivers, came to race together.

The classes allowed were three: 1:10 and 1:8 Onroad, and 1:8 Classic.

Since the drivers of the 1:8 Classic category were not a lot they drove with the 1:8 Onroad class, and then TQ and overall podium results have been classified separated. To have more fun and give a chance more to the drivers a bump-up method has been used.



TQs

The qualifying rounds went on good and the TQ in the 1:8 Onroad class was taken by the ARC driver Toni Gruber. About the 1:10 class, the faster has been Maurizio De Simone, driving with Capricorn. Guerra Gianluca and took the position in the 1:8 Classic.



FINALS

C and B finals, both of 1:8 and 1:10 have been battled until the last lap.

In the A finals results have been not totally clear and sure until the last second of the race. At the end Guerra took the first step on the podium for the 1:8 Classic category; De Simone overcame the other drivers in the 1:10 class; Gruber battled and won, amazing since it was the first time for the driver racing on this track.
