Berton scores a wet win at the “EC”



After a pretty perfect Saturday weather wise (imagine not a cloud in the sky and Italian summer), Sunday turned out to be a bit of a damp squib at the EURO Contest.

All was well until the race program reached the first of two finals for the F2 class, dark clouds rolled in and it began to spit harder and harder, they managed to finish the 20min final with Matteo Poletti taking the win from Diego Chignoli and Xavier Ansellem in 3rd. Laptimes started out in the 37 sec region and ended up in the 41-42s by the end of the wet main.

Final #1 of the 30min F1 class was due to start but due to hazardous marshalling conditions – the all dirt track got extremely slippery, the race was called a day, better to avoid an injury and the need to clean up a destroyed car full of mud and moisture.

That meant that F1 would be determined by the superpole results, which had been run just before, handing the win to the little man who dominated pretty much the whole weekend; Riccardo Berton, a star in the making. 2nd Alessandro Stocco and 3rd Riccardo Rabitti.
