Jakub Rozycki is the proud winner of the virtual version of the last EURO NITRO SERIES at Fiorano this past weekend, beating 9x IFMAR World Champion Lamberto Collari by just 0.006 sec after 45 minutes of racing. Never ever has the difference between the real and the virtual race, on the same track been that close.

Like Lamberto Collari, Jakub Rozycki from Poland drove a perfect race, with just 1 serious mistake which cost him around 3 seconds. VRC World Champion Martin Wollanka showed up for the first time again after his debut at the 2014 IFMAR Buggy Worlds in Sicily, and finished a strong 2nd just 4 seconds down on the surprisingly fast Pole. Good old Giorgio Mingotti finished 3rd 2 laps down on the winner.

1 Jakub Rozycki PL Pro 171 45:10.450
2 Martin Wollanka AT Pro 171 45:14.600

Short Course Pro A-Main
After several days of heated qualifying run only five drivers lined up to contest for the trophy.
1. Bryan Van Rijnberk, 2. Nicolas Loriot, 3. Barnabás Tóth, 4. Kirby Backemeyer, 5. Riccardo Berton

When the horn sounded Bryan hesitated and Nicholas took the lead in turn one. Nicholas squared up the big burm and shot out for a quad jump only to end up on his lid while “The Ripper” flew by. His lead however was short lived as Nicholas “The Lunch Box” passed... read more

This is a must see race between Hankanen from Finland and Candy from the UK. Candy got off to a very bad start but managed to crawl back to the front of the field and managed to pass Honkanen in the very last lap, but then... see the video for an exciting finish.
