15/05/2019
Maranello Kart secured a double important result on the weekend of May 12th: in DKM at Wackersdorf with SRP Racing Team and in the Italian Championship in Castelletto di Branduzzo with team SG Race.
A double exit full of success characterized Maranello Kart’s weekend in Germany with team SRP securing the podium with Fabian Federer at the second round of DKM and at the same time in Italy with SG Race also on the podium thanks to Francesco Iacovacci in the opener of the Italian ACI Karting Championship.  
 
FEDERER LEADING DKM. Fabian Federer confirmed the excellent competitiveness on Maranello Kart’s chassis at the DKM round in Wackersdorf claiming two great P2 with SRP Racing Team in the two finals of the German KZ2 race. Federer started the first final from P4 after the two heats affected by rain and managed to close the race in P2 behind Longhi, and he challenged Stan Pex for the victory in race-2 ending second by just 0.02s Federer confirmed his lead of the championship at 114 points after the positive debut in Lonato.
 
In KZ2 in Wackersdorf Christoph Hold did not have much of luck after a promising fourth time posted in his qualifying group. Hold accumulated a bit of delay in the heats and could not show his best in the two finals where he came 22nd in race-1 and retired from race-2.
 
Classification of DKM after two rounds: 1. Federer (Maranello-Tm) points 114; 2. Pex Stan 86; 3. Iglesias 69; 4. Longhi 66; 5. Denner 62.
 
KZ2 Cup had an unlucky end for the young David Trefilovs, who put in a great performance in qualifying heats coming eighth and being the quickest in the warm-up proceeding Prefinals. Trefilovs had a technical problem in the Prefinal and was forced to an early retirement which stripped him of the chance to take part in the Final. The best of Maranello Kart’s drivers of SRP in the Final was Brio Hueting,  who was 23rd. Andreas Dresen was 29th, while Dennis Fetzer 30th.
 
In OK-Junior, Jannik Julius-Bernhart, David Jaromin and Paul Rieberer pulled several placings in the two Finals.
 
The next round of DKM will take place in Kerpen next July 14th.
 
IACOVACCI PROTAGONIST IN ITALY. Francesco Iacovacci run a strong race in KZ2 at the opener of the Italian Karting Championship on the Circuit 7 Laghi in Castelletto di Branduzzo. The Italian driver of team SG Race has been among the main protagonists of the weekend since qualifying heats posting the third time of Series-1 and was second after heats. Iacovacci’s momentum continued in the two heats where he got on the podium twice: he was third in Race-1 and second in Race-2 at the end of a good comeback following the top 8 grid inversion.
 
This great result placed Maranello Kart among the main protagonists of the Italian Championship. Iacovacci is currently second in the Italian Championship at 46 points, right behind Cunati who hauled 58 points.
 
Simone Frasca of team Quaranta Racing Motor and Bryan Villar of Gerber Team Corse contested 60 Mini in their initial experiences with high-level races like those of the Italian Championship that saw 61 drivers at the start.
 
Mattia Simonini run a strong race in X30 Junior and claimed a good P12 in race-1 and P13 in race-2. Mario Martucci’s race in X30 Senior had tougher luck, as he was handed a 5s time penalty in Race-1 and slipped down to P26 before retiring from Race-2.
 
The next round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship will take place in Siena on June 9th.
