After the third round of the Italian Championship held at the Adria Karting Raceway, the new classification of 60 Mini and KZ2 is marked by CRG as Dennis Hauger took the lead of the standings in the category reserved to the youngest drivers, while Riccardo Longhi confirmed his leadership in the highest category.

HAUGER: DOUBLE PODIUM AND 60 MINI LEADERSHIP

The young Norwegian driver of Team Gamoto Dennis Hauger obtained a very good double podium in Adria and confirmed to be one of the protagonists of 60 Mini after winning the WSK Champions Cup title, that of WSK Gold Cup and the WSK Super Master title earlier this year.

In Adria, Hauger was third in Race-1 ending behind Ruvolo and Cecchi, and improved to second in Race-2 where he ended behind Minì, at the end of a good comeback race due to the top eight grid inversion. Thanks to this double podium, Hauger got the lead of the classification with a 3 points advantage on Ruvolo, as former classification leader Michelotto was pushed down into third.

The young British driver Luca Griggs, also among Team Gamoto's ranks, displayed a good growth in Adria and easily got into the final stages. In Race-1, Griggs turned out to be very quick and secured a great P4 behind Hauger. In Race-2 the young Briton was unfortunately slowed down by an incident, otherwise he would have certainly fought for top positions rather than finishing 24th.

Italian Championship 60 Mini: 1. Hauger (CRG) points 126; 2. Ruvolo 123; 3. Michelotto 111; 4. Minì 87; 5. Marseglia 83; ... 11. Griggs (CRG) 22.

LONGHI STILL IN THE LEAD OF KZ2

Riccardo Longhi and Team Modena Kart experienced some difficulties in this round, mainly due to tyres problems, but they managed to keep the classification lead obtained in the previous race held in Sarno. Longhi had to settle for P14 in both races, but this earned him two further points for the classification. Race-1 was won by Tommaso Mosca, while Race-2 by Kristijan Habulin. The other CRG drivers could not manage to show the potential expressed in the previous two rounds of the Italian Championship also due to rubber problems. The best of Race-1 was Flavio Sani in P13, as he ended ahead of Riccardo Longhi (14th) and of Paolo Ippolito (15th). In Race-2, behind Longhi, Leonardo Fuoco was 16th and Pasquale Tellone 19th, as they both put in a comeback race started from the back of the grid due to the retirement in Race-1,

Italian Championship KZ2: 1. Longhi (CRG-Tm) 94 points; 2. Mollo 76; 3. Santonocito 62; 4. Torsellini 60; 5. Cesetti 56; ... 8. Fuoco (CRG-Tm) 50.
