I started to race with R/C model cars when I was young, about 9 years old. I started with an electric car which I raced (both onroad and offroad) until 2007. I won a lot of National title, with some good international results, including 4th place at 2006 1/10 Offroad European championships in Turin. Since 2007 I switch to Offroad 1/8 Buggy as per Team driver for Italian National “GS” importer TQ Model. After some practice race to learn this “new world” I was able to keep some good result, as TQ at 2007 Euro B in Italy. The following year I switch to LOSI, again with Italian Importer and my mechanic Marco DeMarchi. At my first Euro champ A in Auxerre I was a main finalist and my story in this category start from this point. 2 x Italian National champs 2008/2009 and good International result. The R/C world is actually a hobby for me and it will be the same in the future.
