Cheers to all of our builders and combatants for making our fifth Coppa a very memorable event! All models handled exceptionally well and with fewer than a handful of de-slots one of the cleanest events to date!!! Several close finishes and nose to tail heats were a well deserved and rewarding spectacle for everyone in attendance. BTW, No models were damaged during this event… Can’t wait till the next Coppa!
