Rabitti Secures 2009 Buggy National Title

The Alife track in the south of Italy hosted Round 3 of the 1/8 Buggy Nationals. Losi driver Ricardo Rabitti was the leader of the event after the first two rounds, and after winning three out of the four rounds of qualifying.

The two semifinals were both affected by heavy rain, but the Alife track was so well prepared that the drivers were still able to complete the 30 minute race. Rabitti won his semifinal race, while the second semifinal race was won by Losi driver Stefano Cantoni. The 60 minute final was dominated by Rabitti who led from the first lap to the end. With this victory Rabitti secured the 2009 title without the need to wait until the last race of the championship in September.

In the F2 class Losi driver Fassi Rusty won the race after resisting to a final charge from a competing driver. Having two victories in his pocket, Fassi looked to be the favorite to win the F2 title.
