Giovinazzi returns to victory in (virtual) karts with Sparco

Columns: Races SIM
A shower of stars at the Sparco "E-Kart League" event to mark the 25th anniversary of the collaboration between the Italian company and McLaren.

An important and important union to celebrate in the best way possible for the Piedmontese brand (Volpiano - Turin) that has had a strong presence in the world of motorsport for years. Among the events organised by Sparco, the virtual challenge between Indycar drivers and other brand ambassadors like Antonio Giovinazzi, all working on the simulator on the Vallelunga track with 125 karts, was certainly exciting and attractive. 

For years the Italian manufacturer has been fully committed to gaming, launching its own line of simulators and products dedicated to simulation which, especially during last year's full lockdown, helped to keep the concentration and enjoyment of professional drivers and others high. 



In the virtual challenge on the Italian circuit, it was Antonio Giovinazzi who dusted off his old karting victories by dominating the scene and pitting himself against former European F3 rival Felix Rosenqvist, now an Indycar face, in the three available heats. Important presences not only from the real world but also from the virtual academies like Alex Vottero for Jean Alesi Esports. Among those present also Simone Campedelli (Rally), Davide Valsecchi (GP2 and Sky Sport F1), Sean Gelael (F2 and Endurance), Jazeman Jafaar (Endurance), Andrea Nucita (Rally), Pato O'Ward (Indycar) and more. Also Kajus Siksnelis is racing directly from real karting, today in KZ2 with Energy colours. 

An important event for the Sparco Gaming division and for the whole simracing movement, which confirms its exponential growth also thanks to important brands and names in support.
