Parma (Italy), 3rd November 2010. There are 160 entrants for the 40th “Trofeo delle Industrie”, due this weekend on the 7 Laghi Circuit in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia – Italy). The renowned event – this year too open to the participation of foreign drivers – has all the potentialities to offer a show of great performances and celebrate in the best way possible its 40th edition, with the presence on the track of all the top drivers, both on national and international level, coming from 17 different countries.
The categories 60 Mini, KF3, KF2, 125 Italia, besides the categories of the single brand trophies Rok and Challenge Iame X30, will take part in the competition. The total amount of the prizes is 15,000 Euros of technical equipment that, according to the tradition, is made by chassis, tyres and an endless series of kart accessories.
For sure among the protagonists who will battle for the final win we have the outstanding presence of the Russian Robert Shwartzman (Lenzo) and his fellow countryman Alexander Zhirkov (Bell) in the 60 Mini. They have had a first rate season as well as Lorenzo Travisanutto (Tony Kart), Danilo Albanese (Top Kart), the Lorandi brothers (Tony Kart) and the Sicilian Angelo Giannone (Crg). Hugo Hakkinen’s race (Crg) will be very interesting too: Hugo is the son of the two time F1 world champion Mika Hakkinen who, to follow his son’s sports career closely, has once more confirmed his interest for the most prestigious races of our country.
In KF3, among the most probable winners, we have “Speedy” Antonio Fuoco (Crg) from Cosenza, who has just come back from his brilliant experience in Egypt in the WSK World Series; Riccardo Vullo (Tony Kart) from Sicily and Kevin Lavelli (Top Kart) from Lombardy. In KF2 the most interesting names are Antonio Giovinazzi (Top Kart) from Bari (see picture) and Riccardo Cinti (Tony Kart) from Rome.
It is worth mentioning several drivers at their debut in this category coming from the KF3: Giuliano Niceta (RK) and Alessio Profeta (Crg) from Sicily, besides Federico Savona (Parolin) from Emilia. Among the foreign drivers there is the Polish Jakub Dalewski (Tony Kart).
On the occasion of the event there is also a promotional activity reserved to historic karts, with an exposition and a show on the circuit.
On the occasion of the 40th edition anniversary, the organizer – Parma Karting – has produced a CD featuring a collection of all the original rankings and the photos of the “Trofeo delle Industrie” from the first edition in 1971 which will be given to all the participants.
