Race report by Mattia Pesenti
The last weekend we had the last round of Swiss Championship in Aigle, in the French speaking part of Switzerland. The weather forecast was perfect and we had a hot and sunny weekend of racing.

The car was good, I just changed something in the shocks because of the bumps on the track. In the first qualifying round I did a very good run. Unfortunately in the second one I crashed my car at the end of the straight and the car wasn’t as good as before. During the evening I had to change the chassis. Kurzbuch did a very fast 3rd round and he took the TQ in front of me.

In the 1/10th class, Traugott Schaer dominated the whole qualifying rounds, followed by the other XRAY drivers, Nuno Santos in 2nd and Michael Schaefer in 3rd.

On Sunday I pass the semifinal quite easily, in order to start the final in 3rdposition behind Pethoud and Kurzbuch. During the final I had some problem with tires consumption but I tried to push hard, after 45mins I finished 2nd behind Simon Kurzbuch.

Due to this result I’m the new SWISS CHAMPION 2014.

In the 1/10t class there was a close fight between Schaer, Santos and Schaefer but unfortunately Santos had some problem and Traugott could manage to spare some tires and he could finish the 30mins final without changing tires. Schaefer was in second and pushing really hard but he had to change tires, so he lost 2 laps.
