Race Report by Marco Baruffolo
During the last week there was the first big event of the 2019 "One Race One Man". The race took place at the fantastic track of IBR Padova. For that race the track was new for everyone so we used the first day to learn the track and choose the tyres and I decided for HotRace Bangkok SS for my e-buggy and HotRace Sahara SS for nitro class.

On the first day I also needed to set up my new FX engine and my new Hobbywing and Sunpadow! During the second day we did onle 3 practices of 10 minutes for both categories and the track changed a lot because of the use of aditive. On Friday morning we did the controlled practice and finished 2nd nitro and 3rd in e-buggy. I used the qualiess to try to settle in the best way my cars for the final day and I made also a TQ round in both categories that allowed me to start with N.1 in the nitro semi B and with N.2 in the e-buggy semi A.

On Sunday, during the free practice I felt really well with my e-buggy while my nitro was a little nervous. First, there was the e-buggy semi final where I finished 2nd behind Davide. The grid line for the final was: 1 Ongaro 2 Baruffolo and 3 Batlle.

During the A1 Davide and me were able to take a little gap to the rest of the group and after 4 minutes I passed Davide and took the lead and I won. In A2 Davide wrong in the first lap and allowed me to take the lead and won also that final and took the overall win!!
