GREAT VICTORY FROM FLAG TO FLAG

Davide Valsecchi is the first italian who made the italian anthem be officially played in China after the Olympics! The Durango driver in fact won Shanghai Race 2 thanks to a perfect race led from flag to flag. Carlos Iaconelli unfortunately had to retire immediately because been hit by a competitor. Davide commented: "Yesterday I drove the whole race with a damaged suspension because of a whack taken during the first lap. But today the only problem I got was not to make a mistake at the start. I did not make it so exiting the first corner as a leader gave me even more determination. During the first stages I tried to keep the things alright not forcing too much. Then I increased the rhythm driving the great car Durango gave me till the chequered flag. Bellissimo!". Ivone Pinton said: "I am sorry for Carlos who deserved to drive a nice race but I am over the moon because of Davide's victory. Now we are going to celebrate but be sure that we all will do our best to get on having such a good time in the future!".
