Lonato del Garda (Brescia - Italy). CIK-FIA, during a beautiful ceremony in Paris, awarded the champions of the 2012 international kart season. Great satisfaction for the drivers of the CRG Group: their performances in all the championships were outstanding thanks to impressive winning streaks.

Tom Joyner (on LH-Bmb) and, again, Felice Tiene (CRG-Bmb) received a prize for the podium of the world series achieved behind Flavio Camponeschi in the KF1 world championship where they arrived second and third respectively.
The 2012 season saw CRG at the top on every front: it was one of the overall most competitive team, confirming the high quality of its equipment in every championship with the CRG chassis and the other brands of the Italian constructor, such as LH by Lewis Hamilton managed by the LH Racing team.
In a racing season characterized by a crescendo of performances, in 2012 CRG achieved a series of exalting results in the CIK-FIA championships, such as the overwhelming victory in the KF2 World Cup in Zuera, where CRG occupied the three steps of the podium thanks to Felice Tiene, Max Verstappen and Jordon Lennox-Lamb, besides Tom Joyner excellent fourth.
To be remembered also the first two places achieved in the KZ1European Championship of Wackersdorf by Jorrit Pex and Davide Forè, besides Jonathan Thonon's fifth position; the beautiful victory in the KZ2 World Cup in Sarno with Jordon Lennox-Lamb; the incredible 'hat-trick' (four wins!) achieved in the second and the last round of the KF1 World Championship of Macau with Tom Joyner, Davide Forè's victory in Suzuka; the third place in the KF2 European Championship with Felice Tiene; the second place obtained in the KF3 European Championship and the fourth place in the KF3 World Cup of Zuera with the young Alex Palou Montalbo.
