GOOD START FOR BRANDO BADOER IN 60 MINI.

He led the Russian Dmitry Matveev (CRG-TM) and the Swede Oscar Pedersen (Luxor-LKE). The paddock of Lonato is full of big names: Brando’s dad, former F.1 driver Luca Badoer, is happy about the performance of his pupil, who displayed a crescendo of results this year. Badoer kept his momentum winning the first heat this evening, while the other two went to Jamaica’s Alex Powell (Energy-TM) and to the Brit Coskun Irfan (Parolin-TM).
NIKITA BEDRIN SETTING THE PACE IN OK JUNIOR.
The Russian Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) has been very quick in OKJ posting a best lap of 47”567s.

World Champion Nico Rosberg. Enzo Trulli (CRG-TM) is third. He is another son following father’s footsteps: his dad Jarno is also a former F.1. driver. Also to the fore in the heats, the Brits James Wharton (FA-Vortex) and Taylor Barnard (KR-Parilla) are two drivers to surely keep an eye on tomorrow.
