An American will win the worlds. Collari is GREAT no doubt. I just think American drivers are on the rise. 2011 will be our year!!!

I saw it too. Most impressive. He was actually knocked out of contention before the motor went south when a shock got knocked off in a crash.

But everyone knows there are plenty of people that can outpace Collari, they just rarely do it for a full hour.

A penalty should have been issued for knocking Ralph's shock off

Robert Pietsch is European Champion

Driving the new Mugen MRX-5, a car he was responsible for designing, Robert Pietsch has finally claimed his first big title winning the EFRA 1:8 Onroad European Championship at Locorotondo in Italy today. Starting from pole position the German led the 45-minute final from start to finish. The only driver to follow him closely was Motonica’s Dario Balestri who finished half a lap behind the 2008 World Championship Top Qualifier. The majority of the drivers were on a 3.5 minute fuel stop strategy with one tire change at the race’s mid point. Only Alberto Picco was pitting longer running just over 4 minutes but his chances of victory ended when half way through a glowplug let go costing the Italian a lot of time. Current World Champion Lamberto Collari had to settle for third on the podium after he was forced to do an extra pit stop due to a damaged tyre on his Kyosho. Apart from Pietsch and Balestri, all the drivers were forced to make unscheduled pitstops as they hit problems.

final results:
Pos. Driver laps time car / engine
1. Robert Pietsch (D) 167 45.14.746 Mugen/NR
2. Dario Balestri (I) 166 45.09.394 Motonica/NR
3. Lamberto Collari (I) 163 45.11.659 Kyosho/NR
4. Oliver Mack (D) 161 45.05.579 Shepherd/NR
5. Andrea Cristiani (I) 159 45.12.022 Serpent/Max
6. Michael Salven (D) 154 45.00.435 Serpent/Mega
7. Michele Romagnoli (I) 150 45.03.397 Mugen/NR
8. Alberto Picco (I) 148 45.07.655 Mugen/Picco
9. Andrea Pirani (I) 82 23.04.125 Mugen/NR
10. Ilia van Gastel (B) 62 16.54.111 Serpent/Mega

You guys are right Ralph, Josh, and mike are the us best shot at winning the worlds. I can't forget about Paulo he is fast as well. However when mike is on he is by far the fastest 8 scale driver in the us and can keep up with anybody in terms of speed. In terms of runtime that is were collari shines thevrace will be won in the pits and nobody gets better runtime then collari does plus he gets the best motors. It can be done thevus drivers are going to have to out pit collari and best fast but smooth so the car last for 60mins. I hope someone from the USA wins the race that would make it a nitro sweep. 8 buggy, 10 scale nitro, and 8 scale onroad.
