SEASON 2016 electric nascartruck modified, round 8, Jundiai Sao Paolo
Starting round of this event, three drivers were separated from others with their own laps. Two Italians, Giordano and Andreuccetti and Huhtala from Finland hitted 18 laps, all inside 2.5 seconds.
Fourth fastest driver was Dunkl from Austria, having 12 seconds gap to the leader Giordano. Philippe Gross from Switzerland and Steve Pitts from USA got fifth and sixth place from this round. Dunkl, Gross and Pitts were really close each other, all inside 2 seconds.
But it was expected, that next round would show us, how tight that top would be. Many drivers left this round without driving, cause it was not mandatory.
Like in earlier races, everybody was just getting miliar with the track, as it had very tricky corners and alltitude difference 3 meters.

Don't wait for the week end to join us here at Sao Paulo de Brasil for the 3rd round of the 1/8 nitro sportscar spec championship !!! 65 drivers representing 13 nations came from all around the world to compete.
This track is special for at least two reasons. Firstable, in 2004, there was the 1/10 nitro world championship, with the win of Adrien Bertin in front of Josh Cyrul, and Takaagi Shimo (who had made no tire change during one hour), after an unbelievable battle ended by a magnificent overtake of Adrien on Josh at the second corner after the straight line. In second, this track is famous because of its layout quite difficult to describe. Some says it's « weird », some says « It's easy », but the fact is that nobody is indifférent to this unusual track. And be careful with all the dust out of the apex, the black driving line, or you will finish in the grass, or in the metal barriers !
Let's see what happened during the qualifying :
