Our partner site Modellismo RC held their 2008 Offroad Meeting this weekend. Breaking with tradition of holding it at Monsummano terme, this year saw it being hosted at an indoor Wild West themed riding complex! Several pro drivers made the journey which saw France’s Jerome Aigoin TQ the first two rounds of qualifying and therefore overall, whilst Riccardo Rabitti grabbed the 3rd round TQ locking him in 2nd. Inspecting the times it appears the track stayed fairly consistent from rounds 1 through to two, but worsened and slowed for the 3rd and last round. On the Saturday night, a 30 minute exhibition ‘Race of Champions’ was held with car 14 Fabrizio Teghesi taking the win 3 secs ahead of Rabitti. In truggy Mugen’s Fabio Boero outclassed his competitors finishing a lap ahead after 24mins.
On to Sunday and Boero would be beaten by German Patrick Feschtschenko after 45mins, Hupo Hönigl took 3rd. The buggy main and Jerome Aigoin had his sights set on the top step after the anticlimax of the RoC the day before, however it wasn’t to be as LRP’s Hupo Hönigl made sure he took home the gold infront of Teghesi and Aigoin in 3rd.
