Maranello Kart and Massimo Dante put in an exceptional performance in KZ2 at the South Garda Karting Circuit in Lonato. Dante dominated throughout and claimed the victory in the 30th Spring Trophy.

Massimo Dante posted the quickest time since the beginning in qualifying with the assistance of SG Race and on TM engine by Rizzi in the closer of the Spring Trophy in Lonato. He then kept the momentum winning both heats he raced in and claiming a strong win also in the Final. Massimo Dante commented his triumph in this way: “I am really happy for this win that allowed me to take the Trophy after the second place I scored in the opener last March 17th. In the past days we made some changes that have been crucial. Our performance improved sensibly.”

Dante ended equal on points with Lanzeni in the final classification of the Spring Trophy, as both secured one win and a second place, but Dante scored a better result in qualifying in this round and therefore the Maranello Kart driver was awarded with the title.
