Karting racing drivers Gianluca Dingli and Kyle Micallef competed in the Rok Super Finals earlier this month.
This prestigious final was held at Franciacorta Racing Track as it was rescheduled from South Garda karting.
Dingli and Kyle took part in this event in the Super Rok Class and the Mini Rok Class respectively.
For Dingli this was the ninth consecutive world finals and for the 10-year-old driver Kyle Micallef it was his first experience.
This racing event was held under heavy rainfall which was a drawback for the Maltese drivers.
In pole position, Dingli obtained the 15th place while Micallef finished 27th in his class.
In Saturday’s finals, Dingli started from the 24th place and managed to finish the final in 15th place.
Dingli was very satisfied that he managed to make it to the end especially under the current world situation that made extremely difficult to attend training and events abroad.
Micallef failed to qualify for the last final.
Both drivers were under the guidance of Valtex Racing Team and STM engine tuners.
For these drivers, their participation would not have been possible without the support of the Parliamentary Secretary of Sport, Dr Clifton Grima, SportMalta, family members and friends.
