It was sunny and there was a dry track for the KZ2 Prefinal on Sunday morning at Sarno. The front row was occupied by Luca Corberi (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Andreas Fasberg (Tony Kart / Vortex), followed by Alessio Piccini (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Marijn Kremers (BirelART / Parilla). Piccini was pushed at the hairpin and lost five places while Corberi led Fasberg after a fast start which was under investigation. Fabian Federer (CRG / Maxter) took 3rd position, Nicolas Gonzales (Alpha / TM) was fighting for the top five and Felice Tiene (CRG / Maxter) moved into the top 10. Thomas Laurent (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Paolo Besancenez (Tony Kart / Vortex) returned respectively to 12th and 17th.
Corberi escaped by 1.5” in front of Fasberg by mid race. Federer gave way to Alberto Cavalieri (Righetti / Modena) for 3rd position, and Joel Johansson (Energy / TM) was fighting with Piccini for 6th. The incredible Cavalieri was equipped with new tyres and had started 16th, then took 2nd position ahead Fasberg, while Alexander Schmitz (Tony Kart / Vortex), also on new tyres, was delayed at the start and was now setting fastest laps in 22nd.
Corberi crossed the finish line in 1st place, but was given a penalty of 5” for jumping the start and dropped to 6th, giving the victory to Cavalieri, with Fasberg 2nd, Federer 3rd, Kremers 4th and Johansson 5th. Gonzales finished 9th, Besancenez 12th, with 10 places regained, and Laurent, not as virulent than usual, in 14th.
