TROFEO NOVAROSSI 2016
10-11 SEPTEMBER 2016 - MINIAUTODROMO JODY SHECKTER, FIORANO - ITALY
One of the most awaited “classic” Italian Trophy was held at MiniCar club in Fiorano this week; 80 drivers attending from the whole Europe battling hard in a very hot weekend that reach temperature of 33 degrees at sunday. Race format was “easy” with 4 rounds of qualifying (2+2 on Saturday and on Sunday) with the best counting and plenty of track time for practice with A-B-C mains schedule.
Lamberto, Carmine, Francesco and for the first time with Infinity car, Oliver Mack and Dennis Weihert attended to the race. After qualifying the standings show Carmine, Lamberto and Oliver sitting in Amain with Francesco and Dennis in Bmain.
In Bmain Francesco was in the lead when he suffered a contact while he was lapping another car: this vanished his advantage and forced him to 2nd place. Dennis had an issue before the start… After fixing it he drove really well reaching an overall 5th place.
In Amain Lamberto made another great race… After 3 corners he choose to go on the grass to avoid the group of cars in front of him closing the first lap in last position. Immediately he started to push on the throttle making the best lap and recovering all the field one by one. With a perfect pit strategy he took the lead and never looked back; steady on unmatched pace he grabbed the win in front of Balestri and Pirani. Carmine finished in good 4th position and Oliver 9th after some time lost in the pits.
Fiorano will be the location of the last “BIG EVENT” of European season: ENS round4… See you there!!!
