UPSET: ITALY BEATS USA AT OVAL WORLDS

22.12.2017

PRO class

The biggest upset of the 2017 VRC Worlds thus far: Italian Andrea Giordano beating the VRC oval king Jimmy Flack. It could be home advantage of course, but unlikely as the Melzo oval is hardly used in real life. The 15 minute long final was really between these 2 drivers from the moment the flag dropped. Flack made a small mistake in lap 2 going into turn 1 which cost him haf a second, enough to make him chase down Giordano for the whole 15 minutes. He was able to get in front of the flying Giordano during the pitstops, but other than these few laps he just saw the tailpipe of the Italian. They were totally evenly matched these 2 front runners and as Giordano was able to stay cool until the finish flag despite the pressure of Flack he was crowned the 2017 VRC Oval winner in 1:10 nitro Nascar trucks with just 0.8 seconds over Flack. Graham Raistrick from the UK finished 1 lap down on the 2 front runners in 3rd place.

Video of the Pro Super final, must watch... and share!

Congrats to the podium finishers!

SPORT class




Romain Lacroix was the early leader but after his 1st pitstop he had bad outlap which let Nuno Lourenco from Portugal into the race again, passed the Frenchman and didn't look back. Lacroix pace dropped a bit in the second half of the race which gave Lourenco some breathing space of a lap and a half at the end. Hans Guenther Heitsch from Germany completed the podium 5 laps down on the winner. One notable result in Sport class was certainly good old Tom Elbersole scoring the 6th overall time. Tom (age 72) has done close to 160.000 km since he joined VRC in 2011...
