His name is now on the prestigious list of winners of the event.
His path to the final win was awesome:Kevin Lavelli (Top Kart-Parilla) won the trophy thanks to his great performance in one of the most demanding categories, the KF3. He won over a lot a great group of tough rivals such as “Speedy”, alias Antonio Fuoco (Crg-Maxter), who in the final had to be happy with the second step of the podium. Lavelli achieved a terrific hat-trick: pole position in the time trials, first place in the two qualifying heats, win in the final.

Always in KF3, at the end of a gripping race, the Danish Slavko Ivanovic (Tony Kart-Vortex) arrived third behind the two main protagonists, just before Stefano Villa Zanotti (Tony Kart-Vortex) and Antonio D’Angelo (Parolin-Tm).
Great show in the races of the KF2 too. Stefano Cucco (Birel-Parilla) MGM Team, eventually, achieved the win thanks to his excellent qualities both on dry track (pole and win in one of the heats) and on a track flooded with water after the sudden rain fallen during the afternoon, right in the middle of the finals.

The fourth and fifth place went to the FinnishJuuso-Matti Pajuranta (Ninar-Vortex) and the Russian Ivan Kosyukov (Tony Kart-Vortex).
