The new national season is starting and Cassino's track hosted the warm-up event for the 1st official race of 2008: the Amsci Interregional Championship. More than 60 drivers attended the 1:10 class, with many top drivers coming from central Italy. My NT1 was really good since practice on Saturday, and with the new lightweight tyres the laptimes dropped a lot. This made me able to reach a similar record lap made by another top driver two weeks ago. On Sunday all was ready for the race. I made the 2nd TQ just one second behind Mazzeo but I was really confident for the final. The car was great and in the 2nd qualifying round I broke the track record but ran out of fuel the last corner! The final was difficult. We ran in the dark with artificial lights and I battled with 3 drivers - Piersante, De Rossi, and Peretti. I felt that to be a little bit faster I tried starting with really tall tyres. The traction was so high that in the first 3 minutes I lost one lap due to a couple of traction rolls, but this helped me in the final when I could recover and overtake everybody as my tyres were still good enough.
