USA: ROAR On-Road IC Nationals, Chaplin, CT, September 25, 2011
After many years running for Kyosho America’s USA Team, Paolo “Paulie B” Becattini’s return to Serpent 966 TE this year, shows positive results and a promising future. Traditionally Paulie B ran in the RAOR sanctioned Masters class but felt it was time to step it up and run with the big-boys in the Open class. He demonstrated that he could certainly hold his own as he bumped his way up into the semi-finals beating-out some of USA’s finest on-road racers. A rough start due to technical issue in the Semifinal caused a 3 ½ lap late entry from the pit area, requiring some major overtaking and focus and almost taking Paulie to the big final.
Paulie B wants to thank Paolo Morganti, Joaquin DeSoto of Serpent America, all the Serpent teammates and of course Michael Salven for personally attending this event and supporting.
