Maranello Kart confirmed its participation in KZ at the second and closing round of the European Championship, race that took place at the International Circuit Napoli in Sarno (Salerno, Italy), through SRP Racing Team and its driver Fabian Federer — two times KZ2 European Champion in 2011 and 2016 and third last year in KZ at the World and European Championships

Following the positive performance in Wackersdorf — a ninth place with a spectacular 13 place comeback — Federer had several carburation issues since qualifying this time around, but managed to pull a good ninth time overall being 0.2s off the pace of the leader. The very high temperatures made Federer experience these problems also in the heats and he could not improve his performance. He eventually had to retire from the Final after holding P5. This was a pity as Federer could have been among the main protagonists of the weekend in Sarno.
