The recent XRAY Adriatic Challenge, organized on the beautiful track in Tolmin (Slovenia), is officially in the books! Drivers from Slovenia, Italia, France, Croatia, and Romania were in attendance. On Saturday free practice was held until a light tap of rain put an end to drivers hopes of finding the perfect setup. Sunday’s racing program included some wheel-to-wheel action in all classes!
In the 13.5 Stock category it was again Jan Popič who dominated in the final securing an easy win, with Stanislav Kokol (XRAY T4) to follow in second place, and finally Adolfo Ferraioli in third place despite a slight discomfort in the 3rd final leg.
Modified was dominated by Matej Miklavec, while the second and third place was a great battle between Goran Vignevič and Mattia Greco.
In the Nitro GT class it was Ivo Crepaldi who won in front of Pavlo Klancič and Daniel Dapretto in third place. In the Electric GT class it was Miha Holc taking the win.
1/10 Nitro saw a fight right from the first lap between Callegari and Mariuzza, but an inconvenience on the rear suspension put Callegari out for more than two minutes to solve the problem, while a fast Chiarandini moved up the standings by winning a well deserved first place, and Mariuzza Callegari second.
The 1/8 Nitro category lost the very fast Jernej Vuga with mechanical problems early on, and Nejc Mihelič took immediate advantage of Vuga’s misfortune. Nejc carried on by winning with a significant margin over his rivals. Alojz Osvald and Simon Štelcl would finish second and third.
After the prize ceremony, racers proceeded with the final lottery, consisting of well assorted prizes and a couple of XRAY 1/18 cars! In the end, winners or losers, everyone went home with a smile!
