POSITIVE TREND FOR DIONISIOS IN KF
Solid performance for Dionisios Marcu, on CRG-TM, in KF after a difficult qualifying due to an unlucky tires choice in the changing weather conditions.

INCIDENT FOR MARTINEZ IN KF JUNIOR
Both Eliseo Martinez Merono and Pietro Mazzola missed out on gaining access to the KF Junior Final mainly due to the incidents they were involved in during the Prefinal. In particular, Martinez has been hit from the back and sent out during the first lap of the Final. Martinez had previously managed to climb from the 29th to the 9th place in the heats and the young Spaniard was all set for a good final part of the weekend. The incident at the first lap of the Prefinal voided the good work done up to that point instead.
GAMOTO AND MUIZZUDDIN GET THE 60 MINI TITLE
