The Italian Job Race’17 Summer Ed. back to Alseno


See: The Italian Job Race

Organizers of the famous “The Italian Job Race” Summer Edition have announced that the event will took place again next year at the awesome Alseno track in Italy, located in a nice city close to Piacenza. The proximity of airports such as Milan and Bologna makes accessibility to the track very easy.

Riccardo Berton wins The Italian Job Race


The main final of this summer edition of The Italian Job Race will be challenging for drivers and mechanics because of the blazing sun. At this elimination game one driver will combine speed, regularity and reliability: Riccardo Berton. Several drivers will lead the race for a few laps and all will fall at one time or another. The two unluckiest are Darren Blommfield, fuel line cut and David Ronnefalk which his tank does not close properly (see photos).

Darren Bloomfield starts on pole for the hour-long final here at the Italian Job Race in Alseno, Italy. Darren Bloomfield will win the most “quiet” semi final ahead Riccardo Berton. Berton lead the race but two mistakes will allow Blommfield to take the lead of the race. This will be the fastest semi final and Bloomfield perform 32 laps in 20: 26: 104. Behind the duo we find Elliott Boots who achieves the fastest lap time with 36: 428. The Kyosho driver is followed by Leonardo Valente in 4th, Jonny Skidmore in 5th after a consistent race and Alex Zanchettin who deserved better but that has to go through the pits to fix a mechanical problem.

Riccardo Berton’s IJR TQ Double


Gradually, as the rounds go the pressure is clearly felt. In Nitro Buggy 2 drivers are neck and neck: David Ronnefalk and Riccardo Berton. If Ronnefalk with a superb 9 laps in Q4 has set the bar high, Berton certainly will not give up! Everything will be decided in the 5th and final round between the two drivers. This round will be very intense; Ronnefalk will make two small mistakes but enough for Berton grabbed the round victory and therefore the overall TQ. He beat Ronnefalk less than 2 seconds behind and Darren Bloomfield always in the top 3.

Elliott Boots leads the way in Italian Job Race Controlled Practice 1

IJR vs AO friday13

The Italian Job Race VS Outdoor Arena began his show on the Nicolas Offload Track deemed (rightly!) As one of the most beautiful in Italy. The track is quite big, not like Redovan track, it is well designed with good big jumps well made. The track kind where we pleased, from beginners to experienced drivers. But like any track “easy” go fast requires talent and that’s good because as usual with The Italian Job Race stars are there with multiple European Champions as Elliott Boots and David Ronnefalk, Yannick Aigoin, Darren Bloomfield and a lot of talented Italian drivers like Berton, Zanchettin, Stocco, etc …
