MINI Gr.3: second victory in a row for Cristian Blandino

Tires: Vega

  • Contrary to what was seen at the WSK Champions Cup, Cristian Blandino (Kalì Kart Racing – Kalì Kart – TM Kart) was unable to replicate the same performances on Friday and Saturday. Except in the final on Sunday afternoon, where the Italian managed to prevail over his opponents and obtain his second victory of the year.
  • Daniel Miron Lorente (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME) duels relentlessly with Blandino in the final laps, however in the sprint finish he fails to beat the Italian by just 78 thousandths of a second. However, this is the first podium in the category for the Spaniard.
  • After a weekend full of ups and downs, William Calleja (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME) wins prefinal B with a comeback of 12 positions and grabs the lowest step of the podium, after the second place obtained at the WSK Champions Cup.
  • Starting from pole position, Daniil Kutskov (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME) lost the lead after the first laps and finished the race in fourth place. Fifth position, however, for Nikita Ljubimov (Kalì Kart Racing – Kalì Kart – TM Kart), ahead of Zdenek Babicek (AKM Motorsport – KR – IAME), sixth with 8 positions gained.
  • The ranking continues with Oleksandr Legenkyi (Team Driver Racing Kart – KR – IAME), seventh, Mark Pilipenko (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME), eighth, Gioele Girardello (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – IAME), ninth, and Antoine Venant ( Kidix – KR – IAME), tenth.
  • After good results in the qualifying heats, Alessandro Truchot (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME) closes the final in 30th place.


MINI Gr.3 U10: Carl Nellegard ends an extraordinary weekend with a victory

Tires: Vega

  • Absolutely perfect performance for Carl Nellegard (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – TM Kart) in Lonato del Garda. The Swedish driver, after having recorded pole position in qualifying and always remaining at the top of the general classification, also wins Sunday afternoon's final with authority, without ever showing signs of weakness.
  • Niccolò Perico (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Kart) tries to put a spanner in the works of Nellogard, but the Italian has to give up in front of his rival. The Italian still obtains a precious second place from a championship perspective.
  • Thanks to a brilliant last lap, Lorenzo Di Pietrantonio (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME) grabs the lowest step of the podium and precedes Blazej Kostrzewa (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME), fourth, and Lucas Palacio (KR Motorsport) to the finish line. – KR – IAME), fifth but subsequently relegated to tenth due to a 3-second penalty for the front nose cone in the incorrect position.
  • After a good comeback in the qualifying heats, Mark Loomets (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM Kart) closed in fifth position, followed by Jason Kosmopoulos (CRG Racing Team – CRG – TM Kart), sixth, by Edoardo Colucci (CMT – Parolin – IAME), seventh, Mason Robertson (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME), eighth, and Jean Poujol (Babyrace Driver Academy – Parolin – IAME), ninth.
  • Comeback of 13 positions for Simone Rocco (Fusion Motorsport – KR – IAME), 11th. It's a shame for David Moscardi (Birel Art Racing – Birel Art – TM Kart), who did well to settle in fourth position after the first few meters and, unfortunately, was forced to retire during the second lap.
