The penultimate round of the Easykart Trophy gave exciting finals with many battles, twists and feats to remember: with a typically summer climate, but with a few drops of rain, the Circuito di Siena announced the winners of the sixth and penultimate round of the trophy, making the final sprint even more uncertain. The winners were Leonardo Principalli (BMB Challenge), Alex Brunner (60 Easykart), Gabriel Moretto (100 Easy), Riccardo Tocu (125) and Rosolino Caralla (Senior).
BMB Challenge: Leonardo Principalli returns to victory after a thrilling Final
Leonardo Principalli returned to success and did so by obtaining a “Grand Chelem” with pole position, victory in the Prefinal and in the Final… but what a very tight race against Mattia Moretti: the two, in fact, crossed the finish line respectively in first and second position separated by 590 thousandths, thus making the outcome uncertain until the end. Behind them Alessandro Gnecchi, once again on the podium and protagonist of a super race! Championship leader Marco Maestranzi finished in fourth position after falling back to 19th place during the first lap.
60 Easykart: Alex Brunner Gostner wins a legendary Final
In English we would write “WHAT. A. RACE. ” What a fantastic Final by the 60’s baby drivers with overtaking at every lap and five drivers who fought for the victory until the last lap: in the end it was Alex Brunner Gostner with just over 2 tenths of advantage over Bryan Turri and just under four on Emilio Tedesco. The enlarged podium of the 60 category continued with Andrea Marsella fourth at 507 thousandths and Maurizio Sanità fifth at 812. To conquer both the pole position and the victory in the Prefinal was Emilio Tedesco.
100 Easy: Gabriel Moretto is the winner in Siena.
Between the two litigants, the fourth enjoys. The 100 Easy Final could be summed up like this with Gabriel Moretto who, starting fourth, took advantage of the duel of the two race leaders to take the lead of the group, resist Andrea Calabrese’s return and win the Final by just 57 thousandths. In third place Nicholas Tomasella, recovering after the initial contact. It was the latter who took home the morning pole position (the first one in his career) while Andrea Calabrese won the Prefinal.
125 Easy and Senior: Riccardo Tocu overall winner, Rosolino Caralla winner in Senior and second overall
A Final that revealed endless twists, a triumph that will make the last one in Castelletto even more spectacular given the very uncertain final title fight and, in times of Olympic spirit, a legendary feat. Third victory out of three races for Riccardo Tocu, who is a candidate to be a highly rated contender for the final laurel conquest. If his was a triumph without fuss, everything happened behind him: Francesco Ruga finished in second place, but was then penalized by five seconds and relegated to fifth place. The penalty allowed an extraordinary Rosolino Caralla, Senior winner and third overall at the finish line, to advance one position – taking home a silver medal that, however, tastes of gold! Third an exhilarating Andrea Procino, who ends on the lowest step of the podium after a good comeback. Unlucky round for the leader of the championship Andrea Torello, forced to retire on the penultimate lap – a result that could be discarded in the last round.
Honor to Marco Beretta (Senior), author of an excellent second place in the category reserved for Seniors. Overall qualifying pole was taken by Alessandro Viganò, while the Prefinal was won by Riccardo Tocu.
60 Academy: sixth appointment for baby drivers
Under the careful and strict guidance of Instructor Sabino de Castro, the children of the 60 Academy faced the usual program of their race weekend with theoretical meetings and four test sessions and competition simulations called phases. An excellent opportunity for the protagonists of this category as they can grow from Easytraining and face the leap to the next class, the 60 Easy, with greater safety, speed and maturity.
The Easykart Circus is now deservedly on vacation: the next round will be the last and decisive round of the Easykart Trophy – the “discards” will be back in action (each driver will discard the worst result in the standings, with the exception of disqualifications) and the double score in the standings: see you in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia) on 11 and 12 September. The info for registration will be published shortly.
Stay racing, stay happy, think Easy… and happy holidays to all!
