Collari caps off Infinity test with tough Singapore win
Lamberto Collari capped off a successful pre-season Infinity team test with a tough victory at the opening round of the Singapore GP Onroad National Series. Travelling to the Marine Paradise Radio Control Modellers Club track to capitalise on the Singapore hot weather, Collari and the rest of the Infinity team's participation made for the Singapore event's most high profile entry to-date. In the 45-minute final, the Italian, who qualified 7th, enjoyed a great battle with team-mate Takaaki Shimo. At the end of 152 laps, the two stalwarts of 1:8 battling hard for the duration of the race, just 0.179 separated them. Completing the podium, Jilles Groskamp would finish 3rd a lap down on the lead battle. Making his Infinity race debut, Dario Balestri was Top Qualifier ahead of Groskamp but the race would go less well and he would finish 6th. Surprising Naoto Matsukura showed good nitro skills qualifying fourth and also set the fastest lap of the final but he had to retire with 7-minutes remaining.
