Excellent start for Matteo Nannini in the Rok North 60 Championship. On the South Garda Karting track, scene of the 26th Trofeo Primavera, Matteo opened the new season with an important second place.
With his first experience using the new Energy material and in this new series, the young 2014 Italian Champion from Forlì (Italia), he put on track all his talent, touching the second consecutive podium of the weekend in the final, unfortunately missed for just to 2 tenths. After measuring himself with the track and gaining more confidence and kart team, Matteo closed the Qualifying with the tenth fastest time (the seventh of his tournament), achieving the second place at the end of a good recovery during first race, after signing the second fastest time in warm-up. In the final, only a problem with the engine took satisfaction of gaining again the podium away from Matteo, who greeted the kart track in Lonato with the fourth placement in standings, leaving behind 26 pilots.
“As first race, it went very well, also because I was debuting both in the championship and with the new kart. In Qualifying I gained the seventh place and in race-1 I was able to recover up to second place, entering into the final. Unfortunately, an engine problem slowed me down in race-2, which I closed at the foot of the podium. Now I can not wait to get back on track later this month on Winner track”, the driver of Minardi Management, Matteo Nannini, comments.
“I’m pleased for Matteo’s debut in the 60 Rok, as we are talking about a very challenging series, with up to 30 drivers on the grid. Coming from a winter stop, he was really good at opening the season with a podium and a fourth place finish. Moreover, from next race he will have to make the great leap in class, moving to KFJ”, the manager Giovanni Minardi from Faenza analyzes.
