Baby Race secures win in Italian Championship Opener

It has been an excellent weekend for Baby Race at Lonato, in a rain-hit opening round of the 2017 Italian karting championship. The Team, owned by Sandro Lorandi and led by Roberto Toninelli, cruised to victory in both the Mini 60 and the OKJ categories.

In the 60 class, Nikita Bedrin won the first race which was the feature one for the weekend, while Cenedese ended up in 12th place. Laursen crossed the line in 15th place, Dhaheri was 16th and Badoer 31st. In the second race, which featured a reversed top-8 start from the results of race 1, Bedrin spun during the formation lap but fought hard from the back of the pack ending up fifth. Cenedese proved extremely quick too. After getting up to third place, he got on a water puddle and spun, crossing the line in seventh place. Dhaheri performed well too, barely missing the top-10 in P11. Laursen finished 17th and Badoer was 23. Galbiati, Catino and Popov did not make it to the Finals.

Brizhan delivered a sensational double win in OK Junior. Even in race 2, using the reverse grid format, the Russian made his way back to the front from P8 in an outstanding fashion. His skills and determination were highly impressive. Bosco also experienced a great weekend. After scoring third place in the first heat, he recovered all the way up to the second place in race 2, handing Baby Race a stunning 1-2 finish.

The lone Morricone was fielded in AK 125. Making his debut in the series, he gained access to the Finals and finished in the top-10 in both occasions. He was seventh in race 1 and eight in race 2. 

In the Entry Level class, Francesco Lorandi scored fourth place in the Pre-Final and fifth place in the Final. Lining-up for the first time on a wet track, Thomas Baldassari ended up eight in Pre-Final and 12th in the Final.
