Top drivers at the start.

The Mini Rok category usually offers balanced competitions, hard fights and final sprints. Just to remember that in the past season winner was Alfio Spina, who took the Russian Nikita Bedrin at the finishing line. This weekend we will still have Spina e Bedrin on track, ready to renew the memorable fight of last year. For sure we will also have many other Rokkers ready to write their name in the golden album and among the favourites we have the Polish Karol Pasiewicz, Rok Italy champion 2017 and Jacopo Cimenes (Rok South champion). Particular attention will be also given to the new entry driver of Mercedes AMG, Andrea Kimi Antonelli and Brando Badoer, son of the ex F1 driver, Luca.

"Super Heats" before the grand final.

In the final day of the 23rd Winter Cup, there wil be two competitions named “Super Heats”. Such heats, assigning valid scores for the final starting grid, have 24 drivers at the starting grid and more laps than the usual qualifying heats. This formula was successfully tested last year therefore we are glad to announce it also for 2018.
