Baby Race experienced a triumphant weekend in the 47th running of the prestigious Trofeo delle Industrie in Lonato. The team led by Sandro Lorandi dominated the Mini 60 class by scoring a fantastic 1-2-3 finish: Coskun Irfan was the winner ahead of Rafael Modonese and Ean Eychmans. It was clear from the Prefinal that the Baby Race drivers were not going to be rivaled. The team got a 1-2 result with Irfan and Modonese, who was good at recovering after the heats. Then, the final saw the team in splendid form, which included a brilliant comeback by Eychmans, who secured the third step of the podium. Dion Gowda reached the Final and finished 29th while Mikkel Pedersen and Federico Scalvini were stopped at the repechage.
In OK Junior, Diego Contecha ended up 11th in the Final while Tymoteusz Kucharczyk had to retire, although he was very fast throughout the whole weekend. Ksenia Phoenix did not make it through the repechage. The X30 Senior category featured a great return to the Baby Race squad by Andrea Rosso. The Piedmont-based driver cruised to the pole in qualifying and led after the heats. Unfortunately, he crossed the finish line in 4th place in both the Pre Final and the Final due to a technical problem.
