Bedrin, Colapinto take podium finishes in Winter Cup event at Lonato

It’s been a positive weekend for Baby Race in the Winter Cup event held at the South Garda track in Lonato. Nikita Bedrin, running in the Mini Rok class, and Franco Colapinto, driving in the OKJ category, delivered two brilliant second place finishes at the end of two hard-fought Finals. 

Bedrin was as always one of the stars of the field although he was eventually beaten by Spina at a last gasp following a spectacular battle. The Russian Baby Race driver had cruised to the lead after a yellow-flag pass and had to yield in order to avoid a penalty, with the field catching him quickly. He then started a spectacular duel he ended with a positive 2nd place just 0.01s away from the win. At his first outing with Baby Race, Ignacio Montenegro experienced a good weekend and crossed the line 13th followed by team-mate Alessandro Cenedese, one of the most convincing performers in the heats and in the Super Heat 1. Brando Badoer was less lucky. After setting a spectacular pole on Friday (his first in the series) he was forced to retire in the Final due to a contact. 

In OKJ, Baby Race relied on Andrea Rosso who was the class of the field. The Piedmont-based driver set the pole and breezed his way past the heats, also winning the Super Heat 1. In the Final, everything seemed set for a classy win as happened in the WSK Super Masters Series, but one of his opponents punted Rosso while he was in the lead and forced him to retire. It’s been a pity, but Baby Race rebounded with Colapinto who recovered brilliantly up to a remarkable second place. Luca Bosco had a positive weekend as he scored 9th place overall in the Final after ending the Super Heat 2 in third place despite having to deal with rib pains. Yukui Hong also got to the final (ending up 25th) as well as Paul Aron who unfortunately retired during the pace lap. Alexey Brizhan did not reach the final by a small margin. 

In OK, Marzio Moretti faced a technical issue in qualifying and was forced to recover during the heats. He posted a 16th place in the Final after starting from the 32nd place. His comeback was amazing, and the same goes for Edoardo Morricone, who finished 25th after completing nine passes. Nicolas Varrone did not reach the final and, in KZ2, Nicola Marcon followed the same luck.
