Leonardo Marseglia doubles the podium in Kerpen

On occasion of the Deutsche Kart Meisterschaft, Leonardo Marseglia takes home a double podium after an amazing comeback. Leonardo Marseglia continues his amazing period: after the win in Sarno in the Italian Championship, the BirelART driver leaves a mark also in the Deutsche Kart Meisterschaft getting away from Kerpen with a 3rd in Race 1 and a 2nd in Race 2.

The Ostuni-born driver starts the weekend with the 5th Chrono in qualifying, 2 tenths of second slower than the poleman. Throughout heats Leonardo struggles a bit with the setup and grabs a 5th and an 11th, finishing 9th overall after qualification races.

In Race 1 Leonardo signs his masterpiece: he recovers from 9th up to 3rd and steps on the podium. Excited by this result, the 16-year old driver finishes the afternoon race in 2nd ahead of his teammate Riccardo Longhi and posting the fastest lap of the race.

“Second positive weekend in a row, so proud of my team! That’s our potential and we’re finally demonstrating it on track! In qualifying the kart was really good, but then the track changed a bit and I had a few problems in the heats. We were able to understand what should have been changed before the first final and it allowed me to recover from P9 up to the podium. In the second race I pushed a lot and I’m also super happy for posting the fastest lap, really a great weekend! I’d like to thank my team and my technical partners, my family and my sponsors for the amazing support.”

Leonardo will return on track from July 25th to 28th in Adria on occasion of the fourth round of the ACI Karting Championship.

Here are the results of the event.
