The annual One Race One Man race kicks off each new RC racing season in Europe. The event is held in Italy, more precisely in Padova near Venice at the IBR Padova indoor track. This year is full of changes and some drivers are introducing their new packages like Elliott Boots and João Figueiredo who use the Kyosho MP10, Robert Batlle (Mugen) who is now powered by a Maxima engine and fuel and Marco Baruffolo (XRAY) who has left Picco for FX. The eyes were focused on the world champion, Team Associated driver Davide Ongaro and he will not disappoint for his first run after his title won in Australia. D.Ongaro will clearly rule the first 3 rounds of qualifying and thus take the TQ. R.Batlle, just like Alex Zanchettin (Tekno) and M.Baruffolo are fast but not constant enough, the Kyosho duo evolves over the heats but lacks experience with the new car and are not yet perfectly competitive, which benefits even more D.Ongaro and a package he knows perfectly. The race is not yet over, but D. Ongaro is expecting to be (again) the man to beat.
