The 4th South Garda Karting Trophy in Lonato, with 188 drivers on the track struggling with a fairly variable weather, had the advantage of launching new protagonists in the national karting scene, and greeting among others the first successes of Leonardo Marseglia in KZ2 and the very young Thai Enzo Tarnvanichkul in the 60 Mini.
