If the last round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship in Val Vibrata could hold some surprises, here they are punctually arrived, thanks to the presence of some top drivers to better prepare for the next international events. Mirko Torsellini, Francesco Celenta and Giacomo Pollini in KZ2 with their impromptu participation have in fact immediately created some "little problems" for the protagonists of the Championship, who play Italian titles here, as well as Andrea Kimi Antonelli present in the X30 Junior.

In the meantime, we should also mention the excellent participation in this fifth round of the Tricolore, 196 drivers verified in the KZ2, 60 Mini, Iame X30 Junior, Iame X30 Senior, KZN Under and KZN Over categories. A confirmation of the excellent performance of this season ACI Karting after the 208 drivers of Castelletto di Branduzzo, 283 of Siena, 248 of Sarno and 188 of Adria, for a total of 1123 participations in 5 races, with an average race of 225 riders.

Mirko Torsellini on KR and Francesco Celenta on Praga created the most sensational surprises in the KZ2 qualifying tests, both with Iame engines and a difference of just 3 thousandths of a second in favor of Torsellini. Third time at the last breath for Giuseppe Palomba (BirelART-Tm) at 61 thousandths, fourth Giacomo Pollini (Formula K-Tm) at 76 thousandths, fifth Luigi Di Lorenzo (CRG-Tm) at 140 thousandths. The latter's teammate, Simone Cunati, leader of the championship, achieved the tenth fastest time, with the result that for Cunati this race will be all “uphill”, as for the other protagonist of the Championship, Francesco Iacovacci on Maranello Kart with the 12th time.

In 60 Mini the pole positions in the two groups went to Giovanni Trentin (Parolin-Tm) in 48.124 and Francesco Marenghi (Energy-Tm) in 48.379 respectively. However, championship leader William Macintyre (parolin-Tm) obtained the second time of group-1 in 48.176.

In the X30 Junior Andrea Antonelli (KR-Iame) arrived to create havoc, with his pole position in 44.185, in front of Team Driver Nikolas Pujatti's 3 thousandths and Joel Bergstrom at 28 thousandths. Fourth time for Michael Barbaro Paparo, also on KR-Iame with the Giugliano team, while championship leader Cristian Bertuca on BirelART achieved the fifth time.

In the X30 Senior Mattia Ingolfo on KR-Iame won his first pole position, while the leader-leader Edoardo Ludovico Villa (TB Kart-Iame) had to settle for the fourth performance.

In the first group of the KZN Under it was Roberto Cesari (Top Kart-Tm) to achieve the pole position, ahead of the championship leader Alessio Mordini (Energy-Tm), while in the second group the fastest was the surprising Gian Marco Loddo ( CRG-Tm) before Filippo D'Attanasio (Formula K-Tm).

In KZN Over the championship leader Roberto Profico (Tony Kart-Tm) confirmed his speed with 69 thousandths of a second on Riccardo Loddo (CRG-Tm) and 114 thousandths on Riccardo Nalon (Parolin-Tm).
