He had definitively hung up his helmet at the end of the 2019 season, but in life you should never say never: Paolo De Conto, two-time world champion in the KZ category (in 2016 and 2017), has decided to get involved again and will take part in the last round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship, scheduled for this weekend (22 - 24 September) at the Franciacorta Karting Track in Castrezzato.

The Italian driver, born in 1992, will therefore make his welcome return to the karting scene with the support of the chassis manufacturer CRG, the engine engineer TM Kart and the tuner Galiffa Kart. Despite his retirement, De Conto continued to train at the wheel of his own kart and will take part in secondary events with - according to our assumptions - with a single objective: to compete and win the 2024 FIA Karting World Championship KZ.

In reality, De Conto has already made a first outing a few weeks ago, on the occasion of the 3rd Tiziano Rizzi Trophy (also valid as the sixth stage of the Zona 2 Coppia Italia) at the Ala Karting Circuit, not far from the city of Trento. At that juncture, the 31-year-old closed the weekend with a fifth place in the final reserved for the KZ2 class.
