Lonato del Garda (Brescia, Italy). The second and final round of the Bridgestone Supercup at South Garda Karting has started on a high since the word go (and it could have not been different), with more than 230 drivers on track (provisional figure) challenging each other in this event that is the prelude to next week's event as the circuit will house the much awaited International final of the Rok Cup.
 
Out of the 230 provisional entered drivers, the vast majority is in Rok categories, that in this occasion will also compete for the classification of the South Garda Rok Trophy to complete the series after the race held last Sunday. Mini Rok scored a season record with 104 young drivers on track.
 
The money prize of Bridgestone Supercup is going to be quite important, as the race will also be valid for the first round of the Winter Cup. Up for grabs are Euros 10.000, 7.000 and 5.000  in money and material respectively for the Bridgestone champions of categories KZ, KF and KFJ. Rok Mini will award technical material.
 
Meanwhile, the qualifying took place on Friday. The most powerful category, KZ2, has seen three drivers from Brescia in the top 3, as the pole position was set by Andrea Dalè (CRG-Tm) in 42.427s, while Luca Corberi (Tony Kart-Vortex) was 57 thousands of a second short of him and Davide Forè, who recently obtained the second place in the German championship, was a tenth slower than the pole on CRG-Tm run by Renda Motorsport. Lorenzo Lapina (Italcorse-Modena) followed in 42.552s, Giacomo Pollini (CRG-Tm) in 42.630s, Luigi Del Vecchio (Tony Kart-Vortex) in 42.690s and Luciano Medeghini (VRK-Tm) in 42.791s.
