Today seen the team push even further to challenge the dominance of Victory, and along with Fendi, are now throwing down the gauntlet to show who is best, and as of today, any one of these three teams could win tomorrow’s Race 1 of the Italian Grand Prix here in the beautiful Terracina.
ZaboRacing are the first of the teams to use the new Hering propellers which will be mandatory for all the teams next year…. but for this 2013 season, the teams where given the opportunity to introduce the propellers at their own discretion, but with the additional size and weight, a handicap system was agreed by all the teams for those who continue to use the 5-Axis propellers during the 2013 races as opposed to those who start using the new Hering propellers. Hence, we are given a 1% time allowance today, and will receive in the region of 20 seconds in tomorrows race 1 – some would suggest that the handicap should be greater, but we’ll still beat them!
So with that, we go into tomorrows race full of confidence after todays thrilling finish to the ‘Pole Position’ competition where Fendi pulled a 0.1 second advantage over us with only 8 seconds left on the clock before the end of the session, and demoting us to third on the podium.
Tomorrows race starts at 15:30, and we’ll be in race control giving updates on our facebook page, the link to which is at the top of the page.
