Race Report by Marco Baruffolo
Last week there was the EuroContest X race in Ospyteam track. Great facilities and an awesome layout for this event! We had about 140 entries in 3 categories. In the first day we had 3 free practices, one timed practice and two qualies round.

After the reseeding I was first in e-buggy and 2nd in nitro. Cars, engine and tyres worked so good. In the first 2 rounds of e-buggy I finished 3rd and 2nd due to many mistakes while in nitro I TQed the first round and I broke the car in the second round after the jump. On Saturday, we had only one round of qualies because it rained all day and I was 3rd overall in e-buggy and 5th in nitro.

We know that we could win so we prepared the car in the best way for the final day. Anyway in the first 2 finals of e-buggy I had some trouble with the tyres because I used wrong patterns and wrong compound in a wrong situation, so it΄s totally my fault, but I was able to win A3 and finish 2nd overall behind Ongaro and in front of Zanchettin.

3. Alex Zanchettin

During the semi of nitro my car was flying and I took the first spot for the final. At least that would be in a normal race but here at EuroContest the finalist had to do the Superpole for the final grid. In the superpole I finished 4th.

During the first 10 minutes of the final I was fighting with Robert and Davide but after a hard crash my carburator moved so I did all the final with the 60% of the power. I knew I couldn't win so I tried to do my best to finish and I finished 3rd.
