2017 SEASON 1 1:10 SC TRUCKS ROUND 1 IBR Padova


Report by VRC race reporting

2017 SEASON 1 1:10 SC TRUCKS ROUND 1 IBR Padova

It was time for modified SC cars to open they season here in IBR Padova track. Earlier at same track, Swedish offroader Robert Hillman took convincing win in spec class and left two Italians, Bottosso and Andreuccetti to second and third.

In this modified race, Hillman and Bottosso were in main roles when winner was solved. Hillman had very good semifinal run and secured his pole for the final. But Bottosso was hungry, allready at first lap Bottosso took the lead and never look back. Ok, Hillman made tiny mistake in first jumps after the start and this allowed Bottosso to get the lead. But this Italian was hungry, consistent and fast and this secured his win in modified race. There was also some "bumps" during Erik`s run, he also showed some magnificent jumping skills but these didnt affect his rhytm. He deserved this win no doubt that. Great driving Erik.
Despite Hillman`s first lap struggles, this swede had great pace and like allways he was also consistent. He crossed the line in second place, 2.2 seconds behind Bottosso.
Solving the last podium place was very exiting, as Hong Kong`s Carson Yeung and Czech Jiri Mara were in battle. This battle ended in the last lap when Yeung made his mistake when he cutted the corner after bridge section. This mistake solved the battle for Mara and he got third place 1.7 seconds before Yeung.

Bottosso was strongest

In SPORT level we had tough fight of podium places. Canadian Patrick Eriksson, Dutch Peter Haaima, Spaniard Dani Tortuga and American Gary Sundman gave us fantastic entertainment.
Dutch Peter Haaima was on his own pace and had really stable 8 seconds lead when he crossed the line from tenth and went to eleventh lap. Unfortunatelly, Haaima losted his rhytm totally in this lap and this allowed Tortuga to get really close. But also Tortuga made his mistake and this allowed Eriksson behind to pass him.
Haaima in the lead was struggling and never got his rhytm back in last three laps. Those 15 seconds extra was too much from him and Eriksson in consistent mode, had really easy job to get the win. Haaima had to surrender with 0.6 seconds gap to Eriksson.
Tortuga was also in trouble in last laps, lack of rhytm allowed American Sundman to gain him but Spaniard was lucky. At the finishline, difference between these two was only 0.4 seconds, Tortuga in third and Sundman in fourth place.

In CLUB level American Gary Crowell was the strongest. He drove consistent run and this allowed him to pass Orazem in last lap. Orazem had to surrender, with tiny 0.7 margin to Crowell. Third place was driven by Raul Sancho from Spain.
