Last weekend was the Trofeo Automodelli.it at RcLandia, Scandiano, the same facility where the 2014 1/12 Euros will be held.
I’m extremely pleased to tell you that Fenix largely won the F1 class.
3 classes were scheduled Touring Modified, Touring 13.5 and F1.
The F1 class race format was 10 minute qualifiers and finals, 21.5 blinky and Ride R1 tyres.
Pole position was a “private” battle between the 2 Fenix drivers, with Matteo Berlincioni setting the pace and claiming pole position with an impressive 36 laps in 10m 10.323s, followed by his team mate Nico Catelani only 2 seconds later. 8 seconds later was Luca Torreggiani.
The A main final starting grid had a number of National and Euro champions, with the likes of Luca Torreggiani, Paolo Bottignol, Aquilino Andrea, Carbone Davide, Monzani Riccardo, Selva Andrea, Campanini Davide and Luppi Stefano.
The long racing format was extremely challenging with the tires and tire treatment that needed to last for the 10 minute finals. The real trick was to set the cars up in order to be fast but gentle on the tires, so the drivers can push till the end of the mains.
The first A main saw Nico Catelani and Matteo Berlincioni, winning by 1 lap over Davide Campanini (current UISP F1 Rubber Champion).
In the second A main, once again Nico and his Fenix Su-zuka, took the win, followed, 1 lap down, by Luca Torreggiani.
For the third A main, Nico choose not to start, having already secured the result, so it was his team mate Matteo Berlincioni who took the win, followed, 1 lap down, by Andrea Aquilino (reigning UISP F1 Foam Champion).
These are the A main results (1st - 10th):
- CATELANI Nico – Fenix Su-zuka
- BERLINCIONI Matteo – Fenix Su-zuka
- TORREGGIANI Luca – IRC (a 1/12th F1 conversion)

- SELVA ANDREA – IRC
- MONZANI riccardo – Fenix Su-zuka
