A sun shone on the 19th Winter Cup of Lonato creating the perfect conditions for the finalists to give their best at the South Garda Karting,after a difficult eve mainly due to the changing weather conditions.
 
In the presence of 208 drivers virtually from all over the world, this first and most awaited international event witnessed the victory of the Italian Paolo De Conto (Birel-TM-Bridgestone) racingwith the Birel's works team in KZ2, that of Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM-Bridgestone) in force at Baby Race in KF, while the Briton Ahmed Enaam (FA-Vortex-Vega) of team Ricky Flynn won the KF Junior.
 
DE CONTO FROM LAMMERS TO DALE’ IN KZ2. The driver from Brescia Andrea Dalè (CRG-Maxter) came to the fore in KZ2's qualifying as well as in the heats and Prefinal, but a bad start in the Final compromised since the beginning his final result. De Conto got the lead of the race and managed to keep it for the whole 25 laps of the race, fending off the attacks of the Dutch driver Bas Lammers (Formula K-TM), while Dalè ended on the podium in third after a comeback race. The other top positions went to the British driver Ben Hanley (Art GP-TM), Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart-Vortex), Mirko Torsellini (Art GP-TM), Arnaud Kozlinski (Intrepid-TM) and Jordon Lennox-Lamb (CRG-Maxter). The favourite drivers of the eve, Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart-Vortex) and Davide Forè (CRG-TM) were delayed by a technical problem in Prefinal the first, and by a contact in the Final the second. Forè ended his effort in 10th place, whileArdigò was 13th.
 
ALESSIO LORANDI'S GREAT DEBUT IN KF. Category KF has been particularly battled with Felice Tiene (CRG-TM) setting the pace in qualifying heats and the Dane Niklas Nielsen (Kosmic-Voretex) leading the pack in the Prefinal. The final victory went to the Italian Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM) though, as he pulled a victorious comeback race at the debut in KF after winning the last year's KF Junior World Championship. The second position went to Felice Tiene, who also put in a good recover in the Prefinal, as did his team mate at CRG, the Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand, who was third  on the podium after the 22nd place in the Prefinal.
Sitnikov (Art GP-TM), Van Leeuwen (Zanardi-Parilla) and Rossel (Tony Kart-TM) ended at the feet of the podium as the latter completed a good recovery race started from the back of the grid that allowed him to finish ahead of Basz (Tony Kart-Vortex) and Nielsen.
 
SURPRISING ENAAM IN KF JUNIOR. The British driver Ahmed Enaam (FA-Vortex) confirmed to be very quick in KF3. He managed to get the lead in the Final after a very nice battle in the initial stages. The Briton kept his lead until the flag when he proceeded his team mate Max Fewtrell, while the third place went to the Italian Lorenzo Travisanutto (PCR-Parilla). Daniel Ticktum (Zanardi-Parilla) ended fourth after his solid pace in the heats, ahead of Tommaso Mosca (Tony Kart-TM), Giuliano Raucci (Energy-TM), Davide Lombardo (Tony Kart-Vortex) and Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM) with the latter starting from the last spot of the Final's grid.

Plutôt satisfait, Gabriel Aubry après sa première Winter Cup en catégorie KF. La course d'ouverture de la saison internationale avait été bien préparée par le Tony Kart Racing Team, avec de nombreux tests préparatoires à Lonato, l'occasion pour Aubry de progresser au sein de cette équipe réputée pour sa rigueur. La pluie a perturbé les derniers jours avant la course et Gabriel n'a pas pu faire mieux que le 30e temps au chrono. Les manches commençaient bien par une 5e position, soit 10 places gagnées par rapport au départ. Un accrochage au premier tour de la suivante le forçait à abandonner, mais il reprenait encore du terrain dans la dernière et se qualifiait 24e.


Régulier et rapide, Gabriel remontait encore de 10 places en préfinale en tournant dans les mêmes temps que les premiers, de quoi se montrer confiant pour la finale. Un adversaire en a décidé autrement, propulsant le pilote français hors piste dans la ligne droite. Gabi repartait le couteau entre les dents pour refaire son retard, avec un gain de 10 places, décidément, sur la ligne d'arrivée.

 

Une 13e place à la Winter Cup, pour ses débuts en KF, conforte le bilan positif de cette édition 2014 de la classique italienne. Même si l'école Tony Kart est exigeante, Gabriel ne rechigne pas à fournir les efforts nécessaires dont il commence déjà à récolter des bénéfices.

Andrea Dale (CRG / Maxter) had problems in the formation lap of the KZ2 final of the Winter Cup, but an extra lap allowed him to regain his place on the front line next to Paolo De Conto (Birel / TM). However De Conto took the lead ahead of Bas Lammers (Formula K / Parilla) and Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM). Behind Dale, in 4th, were Marco Zanchetta (Maranello / TM), Mirko Torsellini (ART GP / TM), Douglas Lundberg (Alpha / TM) in 7th, Arnaud Kozlinski (Intrepid / TM) in 8th and Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart / Vortex ) in 9th. Beitske Visser (DR / TM) gained over 14 positions in four laps, he was 15th ahead of Davide Fore (CRG / TM). Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) was 21st after his start from the back of the grid. Thomas Laurent (Tony Kart / Vortex) was one of the victims of the first lap.


Zanchetta grabbed 4th place from Dale on lap 4 and Torselllini overtook his teammate Hanley. De Conto and Lammers began to escape ahead of Zanchetta. Camponeschi and Kozlinski overtook Lundberg now followed by Jordon Lennox-Lamb (CRG / Maxter). In the lead, Lammers put pressure on De Conto, and Zanchetta and Dale were not far away. At that point Dale attacked and Zanchetta found himself 10th ... It was atmospheric ... Hanley returned to 4th, followed by Camponeschi, Torsellini and Kozlinski who was more incisive. The French driver was getting impatient behind Torsellini who was holding him up in the winding sections. Lennox closed up to Lundberg so there was a foursome to watch.


With four laps to go, Lennox passed Lundberg for 8th place, Lammers was closing on De Conto again, Dale, still third was not far off. But the end result remained unchanged, each defending his position on the last two laps. De Conto won the race ahead of Lammers and Dale. Hanley finished 4th, Camponeschi 5th, Torsellini 6th, Kozlinski 7th, Lennox-Lamb 8th, Lundberg 9th and Zanchetta 10th.

Nicklas Nielsen (Kosmic / Vortex) and Oliver Hodgson (Kosmic / TM) took the top two positions of the KF final, but Karol Basz (Tony Kart / Vortex) got between them immediately, while Martijn Van Leeuwen (Zanardi / Parilla) took 4th ahead of Felice Tiene (CRG / TM). Nikita Sitnikov (ART GP / TM) took 5th place, followed by Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM), Nikita Mazepin (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Jehan Daruvala (FA Kart / Vortex). Paolo Besancenez (Tony Kart / TM) was at the front on the first lap, but was jostled. Stefano Cucco (Birel / TM) was in a distant 26th position.


Basz then attacked Nielsen who replied, Van Leeuwen took the opportunity to close up on them with Sitnikov. Lorandi was 5th, Tiene 6th, Hodgson 7th. Van Leeuwen passed Basz for second, but nothing was secure in the trio, especially as Sitnikov was caught by the rest of the chasing pack. Van Leeuwen made a successful attack on Nielsen on the 11th of 25 laps, and Basz who tried to seize the opportunity dropped to 7th. Lorandi put his nose into 3rd position passing Nielsen who was losing ground. Tiene took third, and Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG / TM) made his appearance in the top 5.


Lorandi attacked, taking the lead from Tiene with Sitnikov 3rd, Van Leeuwen 4th and Hiltbrand 5th. Kevin Rossel (Tony Kart / TM) was in front of Nielsen in 7th then he closed on Basz in 6th. There was a shirt break in the position changes, as we were preparing for the final laps. Tiene narrowed the gap on the leader Lorandi, Van Leeuwen and Rossel gathered behind Sitnikov, and Basz reeled in Nielsen.


Lorandi reacted and pulled out over 3/10 between him and Tiene, Hiltbrand had some karts lengths margin to Sitnikov and his followers. Positions remained unchanged over the finish line with Lorandi the winner ahead of Tiene and Hiltbrand on the 3rd step of the podium. Sitnikov finished 4th, Van Leeuwen 5th, Rossel 6th, Basz 7th and Nielsen 8th.

The weather was still beautiful for the first final at the 19th Winter Cup, for KF-Junior. The protagonists were almost the same as in the prefinal, but in a different order. Enaam Ahmed (FA Kart / Vortex) was on pole position with the impressive Lorenzo Travisanutto (PCR / Parilla) at his side, Daniel Ticktum (Zanardi / Parilla) was on the second row with Alexander Vartanyan (Tony Kart / Vortex). Travisanutto was blocked, Ticktum went ahead of Ahmed and Giuliano Raucci (Energy / TM). Ahmed returned to the lead, Tommaso Mosca (Tony Kart / TM) advanced to fifth ahead of Jannes Fittje (Tony Kart / TM).


Vartanyan dropped back to 12th ahead of David Beckmann (FA Kart / Vortex) and Wiktoria Panciewicz (Tony Kart / TM) was up to 14th already. Travisanutto undid part of the delay in 4th place. Ahmed got away ahead of Fewtrell, Ticktum and Travisanutto. Raucci was now 5th in a group showing signs of a confrontation. There was a big rise for Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM), who started 33rd and closed on the top 10 by mid-race. Travisanutto took third position while the lead group stretched in length.


Mosca closed up to Raucci for 5th place, Lorandi was stuck in 8th position for the rest of the race, and the order seemed frozen at the front. Pankiewicz wasndemoted but remained on the attack to regain ground. Ahmed won ahead of Fewtrell and Travisanutto, Ticktum was 4th, Raucci 5th and Mosca 6th.
