Racing to the End of the World
After the conclusion of the BTCC and Lotus-3-Eleven series, brand new challenges are waiting the 4Fun racers with the beginning of the DTM 90’s and Abarth Assetto Corse championships.
Omer Kinay, due to his multiple tasks and to his being above fixed setups, devoted himself to the DTM weekly series with the Alfa Romeo, while Dario Bucalo and Gianluca Roncaglia performed with the Abarth. “Italians do it better”, isn’t it? Kinay also practiced either with the Mercedes or the BMW, experimenting several setups for the first race weekend in Imola. Not satisfied, he also designed a beautiful livery for the Alfa, setupped the Race Commissioner’s wife car (that immediately did his personal best on the home-workplace distance) and repaired a toaster. Nevertheless, Kinay had to face hard times in his three races and could only achieve a 4th place as a best result. Some say that Kinay off the podium is one of the first signs of the end of the world, we all hope that everything will turn to normality as soon as possible. Help, Omer, the survival of the Earth is up to you!
Meanwhile, Dario Bucalo prepared himself for the race week by designing outstanding liveries for the Abarth (including a fan Fire version) and the Porsche GT3 (a “bad” one, so bad that nobody tried to get near this frightening and deadly oversteering monster). Bucalo is heading to perfection on his livery design skins: the Musée du Louvre and the Victoria and Albert Museum contacted him for having his original sketches, but it is rumoured that he already sold them to the Hermitage Museum for astronomic figures. In front of art the race results are insignificant, but Bucalo was also able to end in 3rd place two of his five races at Silverstone National, although confused for a billiard ball from other cars, and prepares to work at another masterpiece of art, the climbing of the overall championship’s ranking.
Good results also for Gianluca Roncaglia, that grabbed a win, three 2nd and one 3rd places with no incidents at all. A week with a win for Roncaglia and no wins for Kinay and five clean races in a row for Roncaglia are the second and third signs of the oncoming end of the world: repent of your sins while you can, and stay tuned for the next week race report – if we are still here to relate, of course.
