Another lap, another race for the Modena Kart staff, constantly on track with their drivers in this first part of the season. In Mini Gr.3 and KZ2, the Tuscan sports team had its say by putting together more kilometers and increasing performance over the weekend.
KZ2 – Civico and Di Lorenzo close with a clear comeback
In the premier class weekend as usual at a high level with Genis Civico and the returning Luigi Di Lorenzo.
The Spanish rider had started his weekend well with a good qualifying closed with the fourth fastest time in group C, followed by the three scheduled heats. The first direct contact slowed down Genis who was forced to retire, in the remaining two discounts on Saturday he demonstrated all of his potential by positively closing the balance with two fourth positions and recording the fastest laps of the race. The fourth place in the pre-final on Sunday morning was also excellent. Constancy and race pace of the highest level allowed the driver to recover also in the KZ2 Final with other positions recovered up to the seventh place under the checkered flag, which then became eleventh due to a penalty (placement
Almost identical weekend also for Luigi Di Lorenzo, author of the seventh best lap of his group and comeback also in the heats and in the pre-final with a ninth, tenth, twelfth and thirteenth place. The start from the center of the grid put Luigi in the conditions of having to fight right away, up to eighteenth place with four positions recovered from the start.
MINI GR.3 – Giusto and Stasionis fighting
The growth path of the young Modena Kart drivers continues with Giacomo Giusto and Nojus Stasionis defending the colors of the team.
After the good test in Sarno, Giacomo Giusto confirmed his speed, also in Mini Gr.3 collecting the excellent seventeenth time overall and fourth in group B. Many of the scheduled heats closed all close to the top ten, also counting a good fifth place. The final day then saw Giacomo confirm his performance in the Prefinal (P13) and during the category final characterized by the usual great tussle which ended in P26. The Italian-Indian is proving race after race that he is among the best profiles of the new Mini Kart 2023 course.
The Lithuanian Nojus Stasionis is also growing, starting from Friday's qualifying with the ninth time in group A and four good-level heats stably between the top ten and top fifteen. An unfortunate pre-final denied access to the final to the young Modena Kart driver by just two points. Performances that still satisfied the team in a weekend of exponential growth.
Modena Kart will be back on track immediately over the weekend to take part in the 34th edition of the historic Andrea Margutti Trophy, again
on the Lonato circuit with Anzhe Sun (X30 Junior) and Yuhao Fu (X30 Senior) broadening their horizons also to the IAME motorized classes.
