The news is a sensation in the industry; Baby Race, one of the biggest international teams, both in terms of performance and number of drivers, has just made the decision to use Parolin chassis exclusively.
“We are delighted to start this collaboration with one of the most important international karting teams like Baby Race,” confirms Marco Parolin. “It reinforces the value of the competition programme that we launched two years ago and we are proud that such a prestigious team has chosen our products. We are fully confident in the success of our collaboration.”
The Parolin Racing Kart brand is indeed not as well known as it deserves to the general public. A major player in karting for several decades, the factory founded by Albino Parolin has an enviable track record. Professionals have long appreciated Parolin’s outstanding manufacturing, which was also chosen by the CIK-FIA to launch the Academy Trophy in 2010. Following an CIK-FIA Asia Pacific Championship in KZ, an Italian championchip and a winner of the WSK Super Master in Mini, Parolin made a great start to the 2018 season in Mini, OK-Junior and KZ.
The Baby Race Team is one of the biggest private teams with indisputable credentials such as a KF-Junior World Championship title, numerous WSK event victories and several championship titles in Italy. Baby Race successfully tested the Parolin chassis at the Winter Cup in Lonato, both in Mini Rok and KZ2. Alessio Lorandi achieved top-notch performances even though he had just received his Parolin the day before the competition. After the second fastest time in KZ2, out of the 94 entries, less than 4 hundredths from pole, he then won three Qualifying Heats. After a few racing incidents, Alessio came back strongly during the Final with the second fastest lap. The balance sheet turned out to be very positive. The latest track tests have validated the final decision and all Baby Race karts are now equipped with Parolin chassis.
“It’s a new adventure starting for us with Parolin Racing Kart,” explains Sandro Lorandi. “Our tests with Parolin chassis have been very successful, they are very good products. Our strong agreement with Albino and Marco Parolin is a key element in the challenge we wanted to meet this year. We are convinced that they will do their utmost to give us the means for our drivers to win in all categories.”
