TOUGH WEEK END AT VAL VIBRATA FOR AMENDOLA.
It has not been the week end expected the one just finished at Val Vibrata (TE). In the last round of the Italian ACI Karting Championship the young Birel ART Junior driver Francesco Amendola didn’t catch the results expected for a lack of feeling with the track and his go kart. Since the qualifying session and then in the four heats Amendola was not able to chase the top drivers fighting for the middle grid position. Started 21st in Race 1 Amendola got a penalty at the end of the race for the front fairing dropping back to 30th. In Race 2, started from the very back of the grid, the young italian driver was not able to comeback as potentially would ending again in 30th position. A pretty upsetting end of the season for the whole Birel ART Junior team who now move on to the next big event: the CIK FIA World Championship (OK and OKJ) which will take place next week end at Alharma (F).
