27 June 2023

Our VTM engine ends the weekend at Muro Leccese with the best possible result, thanks to the first place of Sebastian Eskandari-Marandi (Tony Kart Racing Team) in the final reserved for the MINI Gr.3 U10 category.

MINI Gr.3 U10 – The VTM engine immediately conquers the top ranks with Sebastian Eskandari-Marandi's (Tony Kart Racing Team) best time in Friday morning's free practices, followed by the Australian's third place in Group 1 of the qualifying heats and Achille Rea's (Tony Kart Racing Team) fourth place in Group 2. Eskandari-Marandi himself becomes the undisputed protagonist of the weekend: a total of one win, two podiums and three fastest laps earn him the first place in the ranking at the end of the qualifying heats, where also Oliver Sini (Tony Kart Racing Team) stands out with a third place.

Saturday sees once more Eskandari-Marandi in the lead: first in the morning he is able to win with no troubles Prefinal A, then in the afternoon he also leads the early stages of the final. Thanks to a smart and error-free race, the Tony Kart Racing Team driver deservedly wins the title. Sini stages an important 8-position comeback and finishes inside the top ten, while Rea is hampered by a 5-second penalty for his front spoiler in the wrong position.

MINI Gr.3 - The VTM unit of Vortex opens the weekend with the fourth place of Ilie Tristan Crisan (Tony Kart Racing Team) in group 2 of the qualifying practices and continues still with the Canadian driver at the top of the general ranking, thanks to a fourth position as best result in the eliminatory heats and a subsequent second place in Prefinal A. In the decisive final on Saturday afternoon, Tristan Crisan runs in the top positions despite the numerous brawls in which he is involved and hits a Top 10 finish. Bruno Blanco (Tony Kart Racing Team) also at the start, is author of the fastest lap in the morning warm-up as well as of a seventh place in Prefinal B.
