What a spectacle in Adria for the third round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship!

Confirmations but also some surprises in the heats on Saturday. Finals of the nine categories on track on Sunday July 10th from local 9.45, with live TV coverage on AutoMotoTV.

A good number of sparkling battles in the qualifying heats held on Saturday gave a taste of what is ahead in the Italian ACI Karting Championship at the circuit Adria Karting Raceway. A total of 232 drivers on track in the nine categories, with some ten very young drivers of Entry Level, have been battling out in the Saturday heats. Competition has been even more tough due to the very hot weather and the main protagonists of the event – and some surprises – came to the fore ahead of the closing double finals on Sunday July 10th.

KZ2. After the three heats of KZ2, Alessandro Pelizzari (CKR-Tm) secured the pole position for the first final. Following the third time in qualifyng, he claimed a victory and a second place, leading the poleman and classification leader Francesco Celenta (Formula K-Tm). The latter hit some troubles at the start of the second heat and did not manage to repeat the victory scored in the first heat. Lorenzo Giannoni (CKR-Tm) is currently third, followed by a surprising Alessio Baldi (CRG-Tm). Nella top-ten si sono inseriti Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart-Vortex), Daniele Vezzelli (CRG-Modena), Matteo Viganò (Top kart-Parilla), Davide De Marco (TB Kart-Tm), Massimo Mazzali (Croc-Tm) and Mirko Torsellini (Exprit-Tm). Paolo Ippolito (Lenzo-Lke) was only 19th, after the third absolute time in qualifying and a victory in the heats, but had to retire in one heat.
PRODRIVER UNDER. The pole position of Prodriver Under's first final went to Francesco Temperini (Tony Kart-Tm), who secured one win, as Francesco Alfiniti (CKR-Modena) will start alongside him thanks to the victory in the second heat.

PRODRIVER OVER. The Italian 2015 Champion, Andrea Tonoli (CRG-Tm) secured a pole position start at the end of the two heats of Prodriver Over, thanks to the victory scored in the second heat. The other victory went to Cristian Griggio (CKR-Tm), who will start alongside him..

125 CLUB. Tommaso Polidoro (EKS-TK-Tm) of Team Taglienti has been the absolute dominator of 125 Club. He took two victories in the heats after the pole position in qualifying. The second place went to Marco Miastkowski (Vrk-Tm) who claimed two second places.

OK JUNIOR. The two heat victories of OK Junior went to Marzio Moretti (Exprit-Tm) and Alessandro Rosso (BirelArt-Tm). Alessandro Giardelli (Tony kart-Tm) was quickest in qualifying and took a second place in the first heat, but had to retire from the second heat due to an incident. He will therefore start final one from the back.

ACI KART JUNIOR. The victories in the heats of 125 ACI Kart Junior went to poleman Luca Graziani (FA-Iame), and to Alexander Bardas (DR-Iame).

ACI KART. In 125 ACI Kart, classification leader Alessandro Di Cori has been the best so far claiming one victory and a second place, leading Simone Favaro and Andrea Comanducci, all on Tony Kart-Iame, the later has won one heat and set the pole position in qualifying.
60 MINI. The very tight 60 Mini was led by the French Evan Mallet (CRG-Tm) of Team Gamoto, who claimed three wins after the tenth place in qualifying.The second position is currently occupied by team mate Alfio Spina, who secured two victories, while Leonardo Caglioni (Evokart-Tm) is third thanks to a win.
