Last weekend Francesco Martini won the warm-up of the 1st nationals. This race also was the 1st round of a really popular championship called “4-track.”

Here is Francesco’s report:

I raced in two classes, Sport and Libera (Outlaw). I made the choice to race both classes because then we could check the car set-up and have more time to test. This really helped to set up the car for the Outlaw class which was more difficult for me.

In Sport class the battle was really exciting. I had a tough battle with Italian Champion Romagnoli. (In Sport class the main difference is the body used.) I won the 1st final and Romagnoli won the 2nd final so with the race totally open I decided to change the body and this was a really good decision. My T2 was so easy to drive that I could pass Romagnoli and set the lap record really close to the Outlaw class!

In Outlaw class I was 3rd in qualification but I was not so confident with the rules, so it took me more time to get used to it. In the first 2 two finals I had problem with two crashes but was able to fight back for the final victory. In the last final I made same mods that I had done in Sport car and after that I was so fast that I set the lap record and even set the best 5 minute time. I won the final and the race!
