Italian X30 Challenge Grand Final
Who: IAME X30 Parilla powered karts
In the last lap of the pre final in fact, Gagliardi overtakes Beccaria in a great style, relegating him to the 2nd place by just a few tenths and after a very exciting race. Behind them, with quite a gap, follow the local drivers Carlo Piccolo and Vincenzo Zupo and then Vukan Vusurovic.
The IAME X30 Senior Heavy category also put on a marvellous show. Tino Donadei is the star in all the races over the entire weekend and is always the fastest in his category: in the time qualifying in the rain, he is out in front of Vincenzo Marino and Carlo Forte Valentini. In the pre-final, on a dry track, another two contenders creep up from behind: Andrea Monaci and Giuseppe Franzese, a driver who, despite being able to rely on the use of his right arm only, keeps up with his opponents throughout the weekend.
In the final Donadei sets the pace and wins the X30 Challenge Heavy Category Italian title, 2nd place goes to the local driver Franzese who is very fast and quick to take advantage of Monaci’s bad start, Monaci is then 3rd and just behind them are Andrea Coccia 4th and Francesco Turatello 5th.
THE COMMENT By: Filippo Fagnani, IAME member of the board
“We are very satisfied with this very first edition of the IAME X30 Challenge in Italy. The organisation has been always perfect thanks to the irreplaceable assistance of our partners, Chiesa Corse, DR Racing and Top Kart, who supported the drivers at every race this season and to whom I must say a special ‘thank you’.
We have again experienced the well known reliability of the engines, granting a first class level of entertainment, and the prizes awarded at the IAME National Final have been very much appreciated.
In addition, the drivers who raced the IAME National Final are allowed to race in the third edition of the X30 Bruno Grana Trophy in 2011 as well as in the European Challenge, which is currently being finalised and consists of three rounds.
My gratitude goes to all drivers whose passion and determination contributed to the success of this Championship and to whom we renew the invitation for 2011”.
