OK-Junior went beyond level 50 drivers and vice-World Champion and vice-European Champion Gabriele Minì on Parolin will make it to the start in his first year in the category after an important experience in Mini. Other big names of this karting season will be present too, as the Russian Kirill Smal on Tony Kart, who was fifth in the recent World Championship and Tommaso Chiappini on Formula K, who won the Italian Championship. Several teams will be present. The ones with the highest number of drivers are CRG, Ward Racing, Ricky Flynn, KR, Forza Racing, Baby Race, Ward Racing and BirelArt.
Category 60 Mini is the most crowded category that reached its cap of 72 entries. The main teams will be present: namely, Team Driver, Baby Race, Formula K, Gamoto, SRP Racing, Ward Racing, Evokart, Energy and Parolin. Big names will be present among the drivers too, like Brando Badoer, Cristian Bertuca and a lot of other young Italians that will have to face the fierce competition of foreign drivers like  Coskun Irfan, Ean Eyckmans and Alex Powell.  
Category Iame X30 Senior is also packed with 54 drivers including the main protagonists of the season, like the winner of the National Iame X30  Andrea Bristot and the top ten finishers of the Italian X30 Senior Championship Francesco Pagano, Danny Carenini, Leonardo Caglioni, Marco Moretti, Carlo Aldera and Vittorio Maria Russo.
