Paolo Morganti and Michael Salven head the Team Serpent challenge for success at the 2007 Florida Winternats.

The defending 1:10 champion, Morganti improved his time in day two of qualifying (Wednesday) to jump two places and go second on the time sheets.  Unfortunately in round 3 and 4 of qualifying for the 1:8 category Morganti was unable to improve on his time as others did and he drops from 2nd to 6th in the overall times.

While Morganti found himself dropping down the order n 1:8, former Winternats TQ & Champion Michael Salven had a productive day to go top Serpent driver with the 5th fastest run.

Also in the Top 10 for the Dutch manufacturer in 1:8 is Serpent Driver Development team member Scotty Gray who holds 8th position.  Danny Horta, who enjoyed a superb opening day to put his 720 P2, remains in the 1:10 Top 10 with the 6th fastest time.

Drivers will have two more opportunities to improve on their performance before the starting order for the finals is decided.
