The Cesena team led by Andrea Pedrini will be among the protagonists of the one-shot race at the Adria Karting Raceway, which this year reached its 12th edition, and will present itself on the track with a formation consisting of five kart drivers. Together with Thomas Baldassarri and Giacomo Pedrini, already protagonists in the ROK Cup Italy - North Area - ended respectively in the 12th and 14th place in the standings (Giacomo had missed the Lonato round due to the coincidence with another appointment on the track) there will also be Davide Larini and Patrik Fraboni. With success in the WSK Champions Cup and various podiums and successes, Andrea Filaferro archives the positive experience in the "60 Mini" and prepares for the OKJ debut.

"The mini has taught me a lot and the right time has come to make the leap forward. Together with NEWMAN Motorsport we have won victories and podiums of great importance to date and I want to continue on this path. It won't be easy, but I feel ready and during the test I immediately felt at ease even though physically it is much more challenging. This is why I intensified my daily training ", commented the Friulian karting player" I saw a preview of the Tony Kart Pedrini is preparing and I look forward to getting on track. At Adria I will try to accumulate the right experience, without giving too much importance to the final result, to prepare the world Superfinal in mid-October for the best. I want to thank my family, Andrea Pedrini and my sponsors Inasset, La Emme, Bertani Carrozzerie, Winkler Elettrocasa and Sintesipromo for their support ”concludes Andrea Filaferro.

"All our drivers know the Adria track very well. An exciting weekend awaits us with a level entry list. Both Giacomo and Thomas are very familiar with the material available to them. I am particularly happy for Andrea Filaferro, called to a busy weekend with the new OKJ material. During the test day he immediately showed an excellent feeling. For him it will be an important test in preparation for the Superfinal, but above all in a 2020 perspective ”comments team manager Andrea Pedrini.
The weekend will begin on Thursday with free practice, to get in on Saturday with official qualifying, qualifying and heats starting at 9.45. The Finals will start on Sunday 8 at 15.00 (Junior ROK) and 15.30 (Mini ROK).

More than two months after the appointment in Jesolo, he resumed his journey in the IAME Italia Series at the 7 Laghi Kart in Castelletto di Branduzzo (PV), with Marco Ravera and Samuele Mengozzi in X30 Junior. In Jesolo the two riders were in evidence: Marco touches the pole position stopping at 120 thousandths from the best lap time and Samuele wins the fourth place in the race with seven positions recovered in the Final.

"Both Marco and Samuele have shown that they know how to grow race after race and the Jesolo results are a confirmation. In Castelletto we will try to take a new step and try to reach that podium we are missing, "says Andrea Pedrini.
