Massimo Dante

It would have been difficult to find more mutable weather conditions than what happened in Lonato during the 29th Andea Margutti Trophy, race organized by Parma Motorsport, but Maranello Kart's Racing Team managed to shine nevertheless.

From the springy weather of qualifying on Friday, to the wet conditions on Saturday during the heats and the deluge on Sunday for the closing stages: weather has certainly made it tricky to find the best competitiveness. Massimo Dante deserved therefore a round of applause as he has been very strong in all conditions, as did all Maranello Kart's protagonists that have given their best to get a good result.

Dante and his Maranello-Tm magnificently managed by the team in KZ2 have really outdone themselves in this occasion: the Italian driver has always been among the main protagonists of the event, from the second place in qualifying and the leadership of Group 3, to the fourth position after heats thanks to a second a third and fourth place, up to the final fifth position under the deluge. Hats off!

The Austrian Christoph Hold was also among the quickest of KZ2. He closed his weekend in 18th place after being 13th in the heats. The Ukrainian Ivan Peklin managed to qualify for the Final ending 19th in the second chance race. Flavio Sani was forced to the second chance race due to a retirement in one heat, after doing a strong qualifying. Sani was dominating on top of the second chance race when suddenly, probably due to a contact with a kerb, he spun off the race. That was a shame. Luigi Del Vecchio also had a bad day and did not run the second chance race.

The Romanian driver Alexandru Iancu of Maranello-Tm confirmed to be among the protagonists of 60 Mini and ended the Final in 10th place. The Austrian driver Lukas Zbul of Team SRP had a troubled weekend instead and could not go beyond the second chance race, as happened to the Romanian Cristian Stan Rares.
