Birel ART Junior Competitive in Sarno
In the second round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship in Sarno, Birel ART Junior finished in the top 10 in Race 1 and eleventh Race 2.
Race 1 – Started from twelfth, Pietro Delli Guanti charged up to sixth in the early stages of the race. Due to a contact on lap 4, Pietro dropped to sixteenth, but thanks to several overtakes, he crossed the finish line in tenth place.
In twentieth position at the start, Leonardo Bertini Colla was forced off the track at the first corner as he avoided another driver. From last in the group, Leonardo recovered to end up eleventh.
Race 2 – At the starting lights, Pietro Delli Guanti once again showed himself to be competitive: starting tenth, he moved up to fifth place during the first lap, but after the driver behind him ran into him, he once again had to start from the back of the group and finished eleventh.
A difficult race for Leonardo Bertini Colla. Due to a few contacts, Leonardo failed to produce his best and crossed the finish line in nineteenth position.
Giorgio Pantano: “It has been a good weekend: we have progressed well since the last round of the WSK Super Master Series at Adria and we were always competitive. In fact, in the Heats we took a second and two third places with Pietro Delli Guanti, and fought for a place in the top ten with Leonardo Bertini Colla. Unfortunately, Andrea Filaferro was not able to drive because of physical problems. It’s a shame because, given the performance of Pietro and Leonardo, he had the right potential to have a good weekend”.
Next event: WSK Night Edition – Adria (Italy), June 8-11.
