The semi finals used the normal start position at the back straight so the results cannot be compared directly, but Kevin Pignotti was flying again scoring a winning run of 18 laps in 5:11.800, averaging 16.778 per lap, just 0.02 sec. per lap difference with his TQ run. Chris Stack finished 2nd once more, now 2.066 seconds behind Kevin. Third place went to Mustafa Alp from Turkey 4.022 seconds behind, just edging out Nicola Maronne by 6/10th of a second.

The Main Final is now underway and will finish Sunday night July 23. The best 100 racers get another 10 shots to fight for the all awarding number ONE position and win not only the fantastic S-411 electric 1:10 racing chassis from Serpent, factory powered by LRP and controlled by KO Propo latest EX-1 2.4Ghz system with KIY technology, but also the all paid trip to the Netherlands end of July to compete in the 2012 IFMAR World Championships. Something to fight for.
With just 10 shots at it the racers must feel a lot more pressure. The racers have 4 days to get their 10 runs in. Kevin draw ‘first blood’ and has turned the heat up already scoring a staggering 18 laps in 5:10.768 (ave. 16.718….), using up 9 of his 10 runs on it. This result is even faster than his winning semi final run so Chris, Mustafa, Nicola and the other 96 racers that are still in it now how high the bar is. Has Kevin done enough to win the R2tW title and trip to the Worlds? He has only 2 runs left while his main competitors haven’t used any of their runs yet. It will be a long seat for Kevin till Sunday night 23:00
