PICCO CUP ASIA
 
PICCO CUP ASIA will be held at the ACO track in Hong Kong this weekend, 1st and 2nd Nov. I will be at the track from Thursday and will update images as much as I can. You can find live result at mylap.com under ACO track.

Alberto Picco's, Daniele Ielasi , Patrick Schafer will be here to help drivers.

Oversea drivers will start coming in today for practice, with over 180 entries for 1/8 and Touring, this should be fun. ( good to take my mind off the economy!)

Here are some picture from today the final practice.

1. Patrick was changing setting on his Velox.. hmmm secret!
2. Ielasi Velox, very fast using Picco Engine
3. using receiver box from NT1 on the Velox to protect receiver... damn should have dont this to early could save my receiver
4. 18 drivers on the driver stand... bit crazy but fun to watch.

5. Ielasi Clutch, I can see his car just Punch out of corner. This thing must be working but at a price!

Tomorrow morning Patrick will spend some time talking to velox's drivers about his car and Future development.... not sure how much I can tell here.. Picco will also answer any question about his engine and setting before qualify starts.

Hi KitRacer:

I know your real camera man, he does some very good work with his camera. I would like to see back with a controller in his hand, but he won't listen to me... kekekekekeke

Keep up the good work Anthony and if your good i might send you a fresh bottle of Vegemite!

I am running Velox from Shepherd. Very easy car to drive... even I can drive it.

what amazing is Ielasi today took a Kyosho touring car and Picco engine from one competitor (not factory) to race at the last qualifier. He never tested Touring at this track, never tested the engine or the car at the track, just used the 3 min warm up to set up the car. He qualified for top 10!
