There are already over 260 temporary members for the second round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship scheduled from 6 to 9 June at the Siena Circuit. And it is already a new record for the Siena track, where to find the last crowded event on the Tuscan circuit one must go back to 2009 with the 246 drivers of the Italian Open Masters Championship. In the statistics of the Italian ACI Karting Championship the highest participation records so far date back to the 2017 events with 281 riders in Adria, 269 in Sarno, 258 in Lonato.

The KZ2, 60 Mini, KZN and Iame X30 categories are competing at the Siena Circuit, but to characterize the peak of turnout in this second Tricolor race is the season debut of KZN, with the two new categories Under (up to 35 years) and Over (for 36 years) for the first of the three tests on the calendar. The next two events of these two categories will take place on July 7th in Sarno (which will have all the categories including the Rok brand Trophy) and on September 1st in Sant’Egidio alla Vibrata.

KZN UNDER WITH THE 2018 CHAMPION EMANUELE SIMONETTI.
