ITALIAN MANUFACTURERS CHAMPIONSHIP CIC ROUND 2
MINIAUTODROMO 5 COLLI GUBBIO 16-18 JUNE 2017
In the last weekend the second round of the Italian Manufacturer’s Championship took place in the beautiful Gubbio track already venue of last year 1/10 WC. After the Infinity 1-2 in the first round where Dario Balestri took the win and Alberto Picco finished second, our team attended the season finale with Carmine Raiola and Francesco Tironi backing the championship leader. Since the early practice it was Carmine to look the most comfortable on the track, and his Infinity dominated both friday’s and Saturday’s practice followed close by Dario and Francesco. The first round of qualifying went to Dario, but it was Carmine who completed Infinity’s full sweep of the four rounds taking Q2, Q3 and Q4 earning the overall TQ and the pole position for Sunday’s A-Main.
The A-Main saw Carmine start well and lead the race from tone to tone, despite the early pressing from Mazzeo. Behind him Balestri would complete another amazing race despite a bad starting position, with Francesco Tironi rounding up an all-Infinity podium!
Thanks to the wins of Balestri and Raiola, che championship taking into account the best manufacturer’s result in both races, Team Infinity has also been crowned Italian Champion chassis. Another trophy for this amazing 2017… Thank you guys!
