Great success for Maranello Kart at the traditional Spring Trophy held at the South Garda Karting Track of Lonato. The 26th edition of the race awarded again the performance of Maranello's chassis in KZ2 with an exceptional triplet for Massimo Dante.
Massimo Dante on Maranello-Tm has been once again the protagonist of the event.
