Great performance in Siena by Leonardo Marseglia, 2nd in Race 2 at the ACI Karting Italian Championship. From 15th to 2nd to death with overtakes: Leonardo Marseglia takes home another awesome weekend in Siena, one week before the second and last round of the FIA Karting KZ2 European Championship in Sarno.
Leonardo starts the weekend with the 15th Chrono overall and this result forces him to be aggressive during the heats: 6th and 12th that give him the 14th place overall on Saturday evening.
In Race 1 Leonardo recovers from 14th to 8th and this result allows him to start on pole Race 2. The Apulian driver fights against Marco Tormen and Kristian Habulin for the final win, but in the end, he settles for second.
"It has not been an easy weekend at all, very tough race. The qualifying session didn't go as expected but I managed to limit the damages during the heats and then I pushed to the limit in Race 1 and it paid off because it allowed me to grab 2nd in Race 2. I'm very happy about this result and I'm so pumped for the FIA Karting round in Sarno next week!"
Leonardo will return on track next week on his favourite track: Circuito Internazionale Napoli.
Here are the results of the weekend.
