Race report by Mattia Pesenti
The last weekend we had the first round of Swiss National at the track in Schaffausen. The track is quite small and very technical.

During the free practice on Friday I tried my new Picco engines and some little setups changement on my RX8 2013. The car was quite good but I needed some more steering, I tried to change body and found that with the Protoform R18 at 23mm from the front bumper, the car was really easy and fast.

Saturday we had 4 qualifying rounds. I always improved my time and after 3 rounds I was 3rd behind Kurzbuch and Martinelli. In the last round I tried to give all my best but I had a little crash with another car and I lost 1,5 seconds.

Top4 Qualifying rounds:
1. Kurzbuch Simon
2. Martinelli Luca
3. Pesenti Mattia - XRAY RX8
4. Hächler Silvio

Sunday I run my semifinal without any problems, so I could start for the final in 3rd position.
I started quite well fighting with Martinelli and Hächler for the 2nd and 3rd position. I was the first to change tires after 20mins and with fresh tires I could come even closer to Hächler. In the last 10mins Hächler had some problem and I could gain the 2nd place, half lap behind Kurzbuch in first position. In the last 5minutes my tires were small and I can’t come closer to Kurzbuch.
