Thanks to the victories in the last two final finals of the weekend, by two protagonists of the home team, TK Driver Academy: Antonio Piccioni who won the KZN Under Italian Cup title for the fourth time, and Emanuele Villani in KZN Over, already winner of the 2021 edition. But the applause was also not lacking for all the other winners, obviously also for the other TK Driver Academy driver, Edoardo Mario Sulpizio, winner of the MINI Gr.3, and also for the Portuguese driver Xavier Lazaro with the DR team, who won the final of the MINI Gr.3 Under 10, but as a foreigner had to leave the title to Lorenzo Di Pietrantonio, second place with the BabyRace Driver Academy team. And applause also for the Sicilian Angelo Lombardo with Birel ART, winner of the overall classification in KZ2, and Alessandro Zucco winner in the Under 18 with the DR team. Great success also in the two new OK-N and OK-N Junior categories, with the titles going to Davide Mizzoni in OK-N with the Italcorse team and to the other OK-N driver from Lazio Lamberto Ferrari, with the FK Motorsport team.
MINI Gr.3 – Sulpizio wins the final phase and is champion.
After the pole position of Tommaso Cristoforo (Cristoforo/Energy-TM) and Domenico Albanese (Albanese/Parolin-TM) in the heats, it was Edoardo Mario Sulpizio (TK Driver Academy/EKS-TM) who took over with the victory in prefinal and then in the final ahead of Cristoforo and Samuele Giannini (Funaro/Parolin-Iame).
MINI Gr3. Under 10 – Lazaro wins, the title goes to Di Pietrantonio.
The Portuguese Xavier Lazaro (DR/DR-TM) is the driver who stood out the most in the heats and then also in the prefinal, after the pole position in qualifying obtained by Achille Rea (Ferri/Tony Kart-Iame). And in the final Lazaro was once again the main protagonist, winning over Lorenzo Di Pietrantonio (BabyRace Driver Academy/Parolin-Iame) and Diego Bertellini (KB2 Racing Team/FK-Iame), while Rea was forced to retire. Lazaro won the first-placed cup, but as a foreigner he had to leave the title to the first-placed Italian, Lorenzo Di Pietrantonio.
