Both drivers managed to get access to the KZ2 Final at the end of the qualifying stages that named the finalists among the 90 drivers that entered edition 22nd of this important international event.
The tight schedule to prepare the race and the approach to the new Bridgestone tyres did not allow Maranello Kart’s drivers to show their best, but their level has been high throughout the weekend.
Thanks to the support of team manager Stefano Griggio and of Tiziano Rizzi regarding engines by TM Racing, Tommaso Mosca managed to be productive since qualifying and posted the 10th time of his session, as did Alberto Cavalieri who was 14th. Mosca unfortunately scored a DNF in one qualifying heat, but then took a sixth, a fourth and a third place, while Cavalieri had to fight a bit more in the middle of the pack, managing to find his place among the drivers qualified for the two Super Heats first and for the Final then. In the Final,Mosca and Cavalieri could not perform as they would have desired though.Cavalieri managed to cross the finish line in P24, while Mosca retired 6 laps earlier.
