At the end was Alessandro Inchiostro to complete the podium thanks to a clean driving with no mistakes. Simone D’Ottavio was fast also in the finals but, due to many mistakes and some bud luck in crashes with other drivers, arrived only 6th. Enrico Avoni was able to arrive 5th starting 8th, good job Principe!

Nitro: After qualifying season I set the new track record and got the 2nd place on the grid (I finished only a manche of 3 because in the first I flamed out and in the third I make a mistake).

In the final I was always the fastest on the track with a impressive pitch, car was absolute easy and safe to drive and allow me to recover the big gap I had after the first lap because a driver hit me.

In the last minutes I lead the race but I had to refuel one more time respect the others, so I finished 2nd.
