The 4th edition of the CRG Rental Kart World Contest has been a success

The 4th Rental Kart World Contest by CRG has ended with a great organizational and technical success. An organizational success because everything worked excellently in the tight racing program, from the kart draw-up to the race management with the video controls and the spectacular choreographies of the final day on Sunday. But above all it has been a technical success, as the fleet of 40 CRG Centurion Karts made available to the drivers proved to be high-performance, fun to drive, and very balanced, allowing the best drivers to emerge despite 7 different kart draws between Free Practice, Qualifying, Heats, Super Heat and Finals. The problems that emerged were truly limited and considering that this was CRG’s first commitment to a Sprint format event, everything points to a highly successful future for this type of event.

Over 80 drivers from 15 different countries, all very fast and correct on the track, obviously had a decisive role in the show. The races, starting from the Qualifying Heats, were all exciting, with many sprint finishes and many drivers who lined up on the starting grid of the Finals with concrete ambitions for success. In the PRO category, after the Super Heat, with 40 drivers at the start of the Final, Edgard Kanah was in Pole Position with Mirko Barletta at his side, while the Brazilian Eduardo Favilla and Mirko Laurito started from the 2nd row. In the Silver category, however, the starting grid of the Final saw the Canadian Jeffrey Petriello in Pole Position with Federico Gallesi next to him.

The Finals were both spectacular and only decided on the last lap. In the PRO one, Mirko Barletta found the decisive attack on Edgard Kanah only 3 corners from the chequered flag, winning the race with just 95 thousandths of a second over his opponent, while an excellent Diego Colella finished in P3, slowed down at the end by a brake failure. Christian Resa, Mirko Laurito, and Alessandro Grilli climbed onto the podium expanded to 6 drivers, with the latter taking P6 from Massimiliano Cavalieri who received a penalty from the stewards, dropping to P8. The race of the Hungarian Tamás Kender-Molnár was also excellent, 7th at the finish line just ahead of Cavalieri, while the top ten was completed by Marco Ferazzini and Alessio Zacchi, P9 and P10 at the finish line respectively. After an excellent start, Favilla fell to 11th place, while Alessandro Nicali took P12 ahead of Diego Pedrotti, Marco Strafurini, and the Spaniard Jose Luis Chicharro.

Great show also in the Silver Final, a race which saw 5 drivers taking the chequered flag within just 4 tenths of a second and the victory going to the Canadian Jeffrey Petriello over his compatriot Pier-Luc Ouellette. Lorenzo Cioni finished in P3, ahead of Mauro Nicola and Riccardo Barge, with the latter slipping from 2nd to 5th place due to a 3″ penalty received from the Race Direction. Tarik Almou took the last step of the podium, ahead of Alessandro Russo, Simone Grasso, Federico Gallesi, and Stefano Schena. The three ladies competing were unlucky (Anna Wodecka, Nicole and Rosanna Marziano), all forced to retire in the Final, but they were all really fast in the Qualifying phases and in the Super Heats.

The trophies reserved for the Teams went to Zena Karting for the PRO category and to the Canadian team TAG Karting for the Silver one.

Having archived this 4th edition of the Rental Kart World Contest with a very positive result in its new configuration with Sprint format, the CRG Management has already confirmed the event will take place in the same configuration also in 2024.
