Robert Raphael Race Report – Indoor Italian Job 2013

The first European GP indoor 2013 season for Italian Job Padova in Italy was close to 0 degrees outside, but the stands were heated! The best European was given an appointment for this indoor unfolding over 3 days. The track was very technical and fast, the slightest mistake will pay cash. The organization has authorized the treatment of tires for my part I tried but I found a waste of time with no knowledge of how to use the products, I discontinued and some time of the day there was little to see much difference in grip according to those who used the treatment or not.

In brushless, I made 3rd in qualifying. During the finals, the departures are due Stirring grid  start very small, being on top of each other. I finished 4th overall.

In truggy, is my second race in truggy. I realize the third time in as close second. But in the final, I can not get the first.

Nitro buggy, tests go well. In qualifying, I met quite aggressive 2-3 drivers driving, I lost a lot of time. I find myself in the 16th round. I win the 16th. In 8th, I’m second to 4 minutes from the end when I hit a driver before a jump, I have not seen and I broke my damper rod before. I finished 5-1 seconds 4th round. Disappointed but that’s racing!

I used my 3 cars on the Pro-Line Holeshot M4 tires all weekend.
