PENALTIES STOP AMENDOLA IN THE ITALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP FIRST ROUND.
The Italian ACI Karting Championship has started last week end at 7 Laghi International Circuit – Castelletto di Branduzzo (PV), welcoming more then 200 drivers in the different categories. Birel ART Junior driver Francesco Amendola had a tough fight in the 60 Mini category paying a lot of penalties during the heats on track. In qualifying session Amendola scored 14th approaching to the three heats with the strong porpouse to comeback. Unfortunately the hard fights on track forced him to collect some penalties in two of the three heats. In the third one Amendola was extremly fast scoring a great 2nd place. Being too affected by the two penalties collected in the the heats , Amendola has not been able to achieve the direct access to the two final races. In the repechage he was, once again, unlucky getting another penalty which defintately kicked him out from the competition. A pity for a potential great result deserved by the italian driver but not got. Next round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship will take place at the beginning of June (7th-9th) at Siena Circuit.
