Serpent is Top Qualifier at Winternats

sertq.jpg

Serpent’s 720 has TQ’d for the 2007 Florida Winternats following a stunning final qualifying run by leading Serpent team driver Paolo Morganti.

Lying second overnight, Morganti pulled out all the stops in his final run to go top of the time sheets and secure pole position for the A-Main final.

Backing up Morganti’s performance, Danny Horta made great use of his local track knowledge to secure 4th fastest time. Horta is a multiple finalist at the Winternats and is looking very strong for the A-Main final. Both drivers are using Max based engines to power their 720 around the demanding Fort Myers circuit.

With rain interrupting the final day of 1:8 qualifying the times from day 2 of qualifying stand.  This leaves Michael Salven as the fastest Serpent driver in a strong 5th position ahead of Morganti with SDD driver Scotty Gray securing 8th place on the grid for the A-Main.

In the 1/8th Masters class it was Don Jones that took the top qualifier spot, driving his Serpent.
