The fourth round of the Venezuelan 1:10 200mm Nationals took place over the weekend and it was Serpent driver Gianni Giorgio who claimed maximum points. Driving his Max Power engined 720, Giorgio was on top form in qualifying breaking the track record with a time of 17.048 and also set a new record for most laps completed over 5 minutes - a run that would secure him the TQ honours.

Unfortunately bad weather forced the finals to be abandoned and so the result was declared on the heats giving Giorgio and Serpent the win. With this victory Giorgio takes the lead of the championship with two rounds remaining.
