The only thing that can be better than knowing DJ and Paolo won... is reading the Apolaro Report on how Paolo and DJ took the win over the week.... ...

That first photo with the body off is not my car. It is Paolo's. I use a Novarossi 353 and was running the new motor this week at the Winternats. Of course the shots with the body are me.

Thanks for the comments guys, it was a really good weekend for me. I will post my set-up and have a race report in a couple of days. Need a few days to recover. Running 2 classes is hard work at these events.

Sorry, That is not even Paolo's car. He runs different tires. Not sure who's car that is. Just one of the many serpents at the race. Maybe Gianni or Edgar???

Dont think that is Edgar's car. He doesnt use the full shock tower I believe.

the rear uprights (bearing carriers ?) are quite different, they are similar design to the 8th scale design. roll center change by shims on the top rear arm. are these some of the new parts coming out for the new tourer ?

I ran a 720 09' version. Salven was testing some new parts that will be a part of the new touring car.
