The race was held as a 2-day event.
Saturday Practice: Though Team member Renato Jr. had not been racing for a while because he was away in Italy, he and his RC8T were nevertheless able to get up to speed quickly in the controlled practices for his class. He ended a respectable second and his father Renato third for the Grand Final. Not bad for a two-month absence from racing!
Sunday Finals: It started to rain moderately and the track became slippery. We made the decision to switch to VP 904 Turbo Trax Ultra Flexx tires. Renato Jr. lead the field from the first round, and as the track dried and traction improved, the Team Associated RC8T excelled in performance and handling, taking the win.
As Team Manager of Team Associated in South America, I, Renato Tradardi, am proud of having a great team of professionals and drivers who have worked hard to achieve excellent results. Thanks to our mechanics Juan Forti and Maxy Velazco, and in particularly Renato Jr., who is the inspiration of our racing team. I also congratulate our friends and drivers: Demetrio Zigras, Juan Ribas, Miguel and Daniel Blanco, and Manuel Rosende.
