Maranello Kart secured the second place in KZ2 with Fabian Federer of Team SRP at the 47th Trofeo delle Industrie in a very difficult race due to the weather in Lonato. Christoph Hold ended his race in seventh place.
A good podium arrived in KZ2 for Maranello Kart at the 47th Trofeo delle Industrie with Fabian Federer, but the result could have been even better with other drivers of the Italian outfit, had weather not affected the event organized by Parma Karting at the South Garda Karting Circuit in Lonato.
The battle has been hard-fought and rain has fallen since qualifying, especially in heats and Prefinal. The situation improved in the Final, but the circuit was soaked and quite tricky.
Fabian Federer claimed a podium for Maranello Kart and team SRP in KZ2 in the debut race on the Italian chassis ahead of a full season 2019. Federer managed to secure the second place in the Final due to a penalty handed to Giannoni, who was relegated to P3. This result arrived at the end of a furious 19-place comeback, that were those positions lost in Prefinal due to a contact on lap two. Federer’s race confirmed the quality of the Maranello Kart chassis and the skills of the Italian driver that has become Champion of the German DKM in this season. In Lonato Federer kicked off the weekend posting the second quickest time in the first session and kept his momentum in the heats ending second.
In KZ2, the Austrian driver Christoph Hold ended in the top ten. He was just 0.1s shy of Federer in qualifying and was fifth after heats. Hold had to concede 11 places in Prefinal, but managed to get some ground back up to P7 in the Final. Fabrizio Rosati, SRP Racing Team, closed his effort in the top ten in P9, after pulling a good fourth in Prefinal.
Andrea Ceresoli ended the KZ2 Final in 25th place, while the German David Trefilos of SRP has been forced to the retirement halfway through the race. Enrico Bernardotto had a very difficult weekend, he qualified for the Final in the second chance race, but then had to retire from Prefinal and Final. Gabrio Bizzozero, Francesco Galletto, Boris Buffoli and Alessio La Martina of SRP could not qualify for the Final. 
Among the 71 drivers partaking in 60 Mini, the two youngsters of SRP Racing Team, Lukas Zbul and Leon Hoffmann, did not have much luck as they run the second chance race, but could not qualify for the final stages. Zbul was 26th in the second chance race, while Hoffmann was 28th. Paul Rieberer could not go beyond the second chance race in OK-Junior as he ended 12th. 
Another SRP Racing Team driver, Kiano Blum, who will be back to Maranello Kart next year, has been shining in 60 Mini. Kiano secured a pole position start in Prefinal, but a contact damaged his front fairing and forced him to an early stop. The young Austrian driver started the Final from the back of the grid and put in a good comeback ending 19th after a stunning 15-place recovery.
