Edition number 29 of the trophy held at the South Garda Karting circuit in Lonato last March 11th 2018 has been a really memorable race, both due to the quantity of entered drivers that reached level 252, and huge amount of rain that did not give any break to the drivers, increasing the spectacle on track eliciting a series of incredible duels on the wet.

The 29th edition of the race organized by Parma Motorsport has confirmed that this race is a milestone in the karting world, in the memory of the tragic passing of Andrea Margutti in 1989. The race is named after the very young driver from Rome since 1990, when it took place in Rome before relocating to Parma and now to Lonato for the sixth time running.

Regarding stats, this 29th edition has welcomed drivers coming from 34 different Countries. Excluding Italy, that had 99 drivers on track, the most represented nation was Germany that featured 36 drivers at the start, while the biggest lineup was fielded by CRG: 13 drivers. The nationality of drivers included Andorra (1), Argentine (1), Austria (5), Belarus (1), Brazil (1), Switzerland (11), China (1), Chile (1), Colombia (1), Czech Republic (9), Germany (36), Denmark (16), Estonia (4), Finland (7), France (5), Great Britain (2), Croatia (1), Hungary (2), India (1), Israel (1), Italy (99), Holland (2), Norway (1), Panama (1), Peru (2), Poland (1), Romania (4), Russia (10), Singapore (1), Slovakia (2), Slovenia (1), Sweden (16), Ukraine (3) and Venezuela (1).

The hall of fame that dates back to 1990 opened with the wins going to Giancarlo Fisichella in 100 ICA and Andrea Belicchi in the National 100. The winners of edition 2018 were Andrea Rosso (CRG-Tm-Vega) in OK, Enzo Trulli (CRG-Tm-Vega) in OK-Junior, Alessio Lorandi (Parolin-Tm-Vega) in KZ2, Irfan Coskun (Parolin-Tm-Vega) in 60 Mini and Marco Moretti (Tony Kart-Iame-Komet) in X30 Senior. Andrea Rosso secured his second win in a row at the Andrea Margutti Trophy, while Enzo Trulli claimed his maiden win after his dad had a go at it from 1992 to 1995, without succeeding though, and Alessio Lorandi secured his third win after winning it in 60 Mini in 2010 and in KF in 2014. He therefore became the second most victorious driver of the Andrea Margutti Trophy, one short of the 4 wins taken by Fisichella in 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1994.

The Andrea Margutti Trophy will reach its 30th edition in 2019, an unthinkable result for when it was introduced back in 1990. The organizer Parma Motorsport and Andrea's mother Patrizia Margutti, are already working to prepare yet another memorable edition.

Smile, spring is here! The cold weather that prevailed in part of Europe did not favour the early season competitions. Accidents in NSK at Le Mans, cancellation of the WSK Super Master at Lonato in the snow and a deluge at the Margutti Trophy are the most outstanding examples. Drivers, however, showed the courage to line up at the start of the races. There were a few record highs, particularly in Italy. The OK and OK-Junior categories are doing well in terms of international participants.



Beyond its consequences and the search for responsibility, the Le Mans accident must make people reflect on the media treatment of such events. Communication has made a lot of progress in the world of karting, but there is still much to be done to make the attractive and sporting aspect of the competition take precedence over the sensational. All of the stakeholders in the discipline must be concerned and work to develop the good image of karting. Organisers, media, and enthusiasts must fight together against the out-of-control social networks at each disaster. Clicking on the link of a video, sharing publications or giving an audience to certain sites is not without repercussions ...

With the expected arrival of spring, the pace of racing will accelerate at all levels. The first regional, national and international deadlines are already in sight. Let's all keep in mind the pleasure of racing, the only real challenge of our sport and savour every moment of this consuming passion that Kartcom News shares every month in order to promote the image of karting. KSP Reportages' free digital magazine will soon be celebrating its fourth birthday and attracts nearly 20,000 readers worldwide to each issue.

International > WSK Master Series



The weekend of Muro Leccese (Lecce, Italy) has allowed other drivers to close in on top of the classifications of the WSK Super Master Series 2018. International karting has seen the competitiveness of several drivers grow, after the early lead taken by the winners of the season opener in Adria (Rovigo), early in February. The rematch of round 2 - the race cancelled in Lonato (Brescia) due to an exceptional snow fall - will take place in Sarno (Salerno) during the weekend of April 1st. This is going to be the first chance to prepare for the sprint to the line of the series, that will name the absolute winners one week afterwards on Sunday April 8th.

De Conto got the lead in KZ2.
Paolo De Conto (CRG-TM-Bridgestone) put in a flawless weekend in Muro Leccese and secured the lead of the KZ2 classification. The Italian claimed all the points up for grabs, closing qualifying heats on top before winning the Prefinal and Final. The 132 points hauled in La Conca allowed De Conto to get past the driver from Locorotondo (Bari) Alex Irlando (Sodi Kart-TM). A physical problem slowed down the latter in fact, and he could not score many points, slipping down to the second place of the standings at 101 points. The Italian Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart-Vortex) is trailing him only 3 points shy. His comeback to racing in Muro Leccese has ended with the second place in the Final. The third place secured in this race also launched the Czech driver Patrik Hajek (Kosmic-Vortex), who is now 4th at 70 pts and managed to get the position previously held by the French Adrien Renaudin (Sodi Kart-TM), who is now fifth at 66 points.

Everyone chasing Janker in OK.
The closing laps of the OK Final have been fatal for Nicklas Nielsen (Tony Kart-Vortex-Bridgestone). He led the pack throughout the race, but eventually could not win the three-way fight that involved Barbados' Zak Maloney (FA Kart-Vortex) and the British driver Jonny Edgar (Exprit-TM). The awaited classification switch of Nielsen on the German Hannes Janker (KR-Parilla) did not happen then, as the latter managed to keep the classification lead at 144 points, despite having scored only a seventh place. Muro Leccese has been smiling to Edgar, who was second in the Final and secured also the second place in the classification at 128 points, leading Nielsen in third at 122. The fight on top has been made more exciting also by the arrival of Maloney, who climbed up to 94 points thanks, to the victory in the Final. The Spanish driver Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG-TM) also got some ground back taking the podium and the fifth place of the standings at 85 points with it.

Smal leading the very many rivals in OK Junior.
Hadrien David's odds (Kosmic-Vortex-Vega) are rising in OK Junior: after scoring very few points in the opener, the French recovered well in La Conca winning the Final and climbing up to the fourth place of the classification at 112 points. The Russian Kirill Smal (Tony Kart-Vortex) did not manage to do the same and, despite keeping the lead at 157, he was only ninth behind a good lot of fierce rivals. Closing in on Smal, the Brazilian Gabriel Bortoleto (CRG-TM) took second in the Final and stands second equal on points with the Italian Gabriele Minì (Parolin-Parilla) at 121 points. The other strong candidate to the win in the mix is the Estonian Paul Aron (FA-Vortex), who claimed a podium and is currently fifth at 110 points.

Stenshorne keeping the lead in 60 Mini
The challenge is now open between the Norwegian Martinius Stenshorne (above, Parolin-TM-Vega) and the Italian Andrea Antonelli (Energy-TM), that are respectively first and second in the 60 Mini classification at 150 and 136 points. The Final of Muro Leccese has seen the two crossing the finish line in inverted positions, at the end of a weekend dominated by Antonelli in the heats and Prefinal. The first part of the season has made some other strong drivers come to the fore: namely, the Czech Tymoteusz Kucharczyk (Parolin-TM), who is in the top 3 at 108 points, but also the Russian Kirill Kutskov (Energy-TM), who stands fourth at 89 points following the podium scored in the Final last Sunday. The Italian Jacopo Cimenes (EvoKart-TM) is also closing in and stands fifth at 83 points.

Team > Kartagène

Ce week-end des 17 et 18 mars 2018, le Championnat de France Junior organisé par la FFSA Academy entamait sa 2e saison sur le circuit du Mans. Parmi les 19 apprentis champions en lice, 4 s'étaient préparés sous la bannière de Kartagene.


La structure de formation managée par Marc Berteaux assure en effet de longue date la préparation physique et mentale des jeunes pilotes de karting. Bénéficiant d'un équipement dernier cri, les installations de Kartagene à Salbris ont déjà vu passer en leur sein de nombreux compétiteurs, débutants ou expérimentés. Les quatre jeunes pilotes engagés dans l'aventure du Championnat de France Junior ont ainsi pu donner le meilleur d'eux-mêmes et réaliser des performances très intéressantes.




Au Mans, la seule féminine du plateau, Doriane Pin, affichait d'entrée de jeu ses ambitions en signant la pole position des chronos devant tous les garçons. Elle tenait le rythme malgré l'intensité de la lutte dans les manches, mais chutait en vue de l'arrivée de la préfinale lors d'un accrochage. Jamais découragée, Doriane partait le couteau entre les dents pour la finale et regagnait 14 positions en terminant 5e.



Si Pierre-François Duriani partait de plus loin, il ne baissait jamais les bras et remontait après des manches difficiles. Il refaisait une partie de son retard lors de la préfinale avant de réussir sa performance du week-end pendant la finale. Pierre-François atteignait en effet la 3e marche du podium au terme d'une bataille épique dans le peloton, tout en été crédité du meilleur tour en course.


Mathis Poulet n'a guère été récompensé de ses efforts à cause de l'âpreté de la compétition. De plus en plus efficace au cours du meeting, il revenait 5e à l'issue des manches et décrochait la 2e place de la préfinale. Mathis se battait pour la 3e position quand un incident de course l'a fait rétrograder au 10e rang.


Par comparaison, le parcours de Lukas Papin s'est révélé beaucoup plus régulier avec une prédilection marquée pour le chiffre 9. Il pointait en effet 9e des chronos, perdait quelques places dans les manches, mais récupérait son rang lors de la préfinale. Solide dans la bagarre, Lukas évitait les ennuis en finale et terminait à nouveau 9e.


Rendez-vous pour la deuxième épreuve du Championnat de France Junior les 7 et 8 avril 2018 sur les terres de Kartagene à Salbris.
