Press Release from XRAY:
Race Report by Marco Baruffolo
Last week there was the Asti GP on the fantastic track of Diego Fuser! On fFiday, we had 3 free practices, the track changed a lot, at first it was slippery but during 2nd round in the afternoon there was a lot grip. In the evening in the last round it changed again because of cold the track lost grip. Anyway my both cars worked really good!
On Saturday, we made the qualies and in e-buggy was able to take Q2 and two time finished 2nd. I was on tie with Ongaro but he had the fasted heat (by only 0.6 seconds). In nitro, I did a small mistake in every round and finished 3rd overall.
On Sunday the track changed again because it was cold but with grip so for my driving style it was better! In the morning we made the e-buggy finals. Me and Davide had the same pace in every final. In the first one I made a mistake and Davide won, in the second final he hit the pipe and I took the lead and won. The third final was amazing, we fighted for 10 minutes and I overtook Davide on the last lap and took the overall win!
