On the track that will held the FIA Karting KZ2 International Super Cup, the South Garda Karting in Lonato (ITA), Leonardo Marseglia takes home his first win with the shifterkart.
After the huge progress shown in Wackersdorf on occasion of the FIA Karting KZ2 European Championship, the first win was in the air. In Germany, Leonardo started very well the weekend, but then he had a couple of contacts during the heats that ruined his weekend. On the karting track near Brescia, this weekend the plot was the opposite and it culminated with his first win.
Third in qualifying and in prefinal, during the final race, Leonardo builds his success from the very beginning. Immediately after the start Leonardo overtakes Giuseppe Fusco and settles for second behind Marco Zanchi, who can’t hold on to pole for long as Leonardo takes the lead at the Coltello turn under the grandstand for mechanics. Zanchi tries to take the leadership back in the following turn, but the Ostuni-born driver holds the first position and claims the first win of the season with more than 3” on the runner up.
“It is a great satisfaction: after two difficult weekends in Wackersdorf where I couldn’t show my real potential I really needed a win! It sets things right and it confirms me that I’m working on the right direction: because of my career I’m sacrificing myself to keep up with the school and personal relationships, so it’s nice to see the results of my sacrifices. I’d like to thank my family that supports me through and through, my mechanic Antonio who believes in me so strongly and my coach Gianluca Beggio who is helping me to grow technically speaking.”
Leonardo will return to races from June 14th to 16th for the second and last round of the FIA Karting KZ2 European Championship in Sarno, Naples (ITA).
