Matrix Modified

Manzo takes sensational win in eventful A1

The first A-Main of the Matrix Modified class was fully packed with action, and as Michele Manzo (Awesomatix) crossed the finish line, the crowd went crazy. But first things first: Directly after the start, Marc Rheinard (Awesomatix) was on the tail of Bruno Coelho (Xray) and made early pressure on the Portuguese driver. But after a small contact between Rheinard and Coelho, where both lost time and positions, it was Michele Manzo on top of the field – followed by Ronald Völker (Mugen Seiki).
As Völker was not able to close the gap to Manzo, Rheinard and Coelho came closer to Völkers car at the 3-minute mark. After Coelho touched Völker`s car a little bit in the infield section, Völker was able to continue without any problems but for Coelho it ended with an unlucky body tuck letting him drop down to P5. Rheinard then closed the gap to Völker and was able to pass him in the last minute of the race. But as Rheinard was running out of time, he was not able to get close enough to Manzo anymore and had to take second place. But with the fastest lap of the race going to his favour, Rheinard can be optimistic for tomorrows A2 and A3.
It was an eventful race with a lot going on, and Michele Manzo celebrated his first ever A-main win at an ETS race with a loud and well-deserved shoutout!
