RACE2THEWORLDS WINNER DEBUTS AT IFMAR WORLDS

16 Year old Kevin Pignotti from Italy, the 2012 Race2theWorlds winner, has made his debut at the IFMAR Worlds for 1:10 ISTC in Heemstede. Kevin arrived at the track Wednesday morning finding a car ready built by Serpent S-411 ace racer Marc Fischer from Germany and equipped with plenty of power by Reto König from LRP. Kevin’s very first run with a 1:10 scale electric car went down the drain because the body was grabbing the asphalt especially in the fast left hand sweeper, causing massive understeer. This was fixed by Marc Fischer, and with some additional assistance of another VRC Pro ace Mustafa Alp from Turkey, Kevin was much better prepared for his second run. This run went surprisingly well for Kevin, steadily increasing the pace getting as many laps in as possible, doing a very decent 18.2 lap which was just a second off the very fastest laptimes. Only Ronald Völker managed to get a few sub-17 second laps in.

With a good 16 lapper Kevin finished in the top half of the 150 driver field with just 10 minutes of 1:10th electric under his belt. Kevin has 2 more practice runs to go on Thursday before qualifying starts Thursday afternoon.

Congratulations Kevin, you had everything against them, the best drivers and little experience, but most importantly you have: high quality. You have the key to the future, I wish you good luck.

Great job Kevin! 64th overall is amazing!
Most of the guys that beat you have years of experience, know their cars better than they know their girlfriends, and are full-ride sponsored drivers that get paid to practice and race. After a showing like that, you should have sponsors knocking down your door to sign you up!
Again, congrats on an amazing finish!
