Robert Pietsch Hot Race Nitro Cup

The Hot Race Nitro Cup took place last weekend in Gubbio, Italy, the host of this summer’s 200mm World Championships. Using the same handout Hot Race tires as those to be used at the Worlds a lot of drivers used the event to gain knowledge on the track and tires.Qualifying would see former 1/8th World Champion Robert Pietsch take the top spot in qualifying with his Picco powered Mugen, ahead of the Tesla powered Capricorn of Dario Balestri, with super fast French race Leo Arnold with his Orion powered Xray in 3rd. Unfortunately the rain arrived before the finals could be won and so the even was called on the qualifying results. In the two support classes it was Roberto De Cesare that won the 1/8th class, which was run in the wet, while in the 1/10th National class the win went to TQ man Federico Iezzi.
