Excellent response to the first edition of the CRG Rental Kart Contest held in Italy in Lignano Sabbiadoro, with over 20 teams involved in the 8 Hours Endurance won by Enemy Team and in the Sprint race for the drivers’ title which went to Daniel Didolani. Excellent performances of the CRG Centurion Karts which guaranteed exceptional reliability.

The 1st Rental Kart World Contest, the event that CRG has created to have the best Endurance karting drivers and teams selected in CRG events and from the tracks that use the Brescia company’s rental karts around the world, competing against each other in an international meeting, has ended with a positive outcome.

The 1st edition was held on the Lignano Sabbiadoro track in Italy and included an 8H Endurance to award the team title and a Sprint race with preliminary heats for the drivers’ title. More than 20 teams, including the ones from the Czech Republic (selected from the Steel Ring track), Romania, Switzerland and Slovenia, as well as the best Italian Endurance Kart teams, competed in an exciting race, which saw the success of the Enemy Team of Andrea Rocco, Edgard Kanah, Daniel Didolani and Marco Comparin, over the PKI team of Fabiano Bottosso, Marco Bortoluzzi and Matteo Grassotto.

Keystone (the winning team of the Italian Endurance Kart Cup series made up of Claudio Micelli, Andrea Zemin, Massimo Povia and Orlando Sidoti) also closed an excellent race in P3 ahead of Ivo’s Steel Ring B team by a few seconds. Polasek, Zdenek Groman, Domink Stritesky, Jan Matyas, Vojtech Kurka, Zdenek Ostadal and Tomas Kralicek.

Following this, the Bria Racing team of the Beretta Group (partner of the event) obtained 5th place after having conquered pole in the timed trials and preceded Raceland Vicenza in the measuring race, a team making its debut in an international contest and author of a race with the “pace” of the best.

The top ten was completed by the Nolan team of Alberto and Simone De Martini, assisted by Alberto Vergani and Niki Cadei, who preceded Lhasa, Pomposa Dream team and Apulia Racing team.

The Driver Contest reserved for drivers, however, saw the success of Daniel Didolani over Andrea Rocco (finish at the photo finish by just 182 thousandths), while the driver from the Czech Republic Zdenek Ostadal took the 3rd step of the podium.

The event highlighted the excellent performances of the Centurion Karts, which guaranteed exceptional reliability (no technical assistance intervention) and equivalent performances between all the teams without the need to replace the karts during the race (a practice that CRG does not apply because makes the races often a lottery in the hands of luck rather than the strategies and skill of the individual drivers). The organization staff was also promoted with flying colours, having created a compelling race format and punctual services for all the teams, including an excellent hospitality area in the pit building, video control of all phases of race and excellent technical assistance for all teams.

The interest in the CRG Rental Kart World Contest is growing day by day and for 2018 the teams from China, USA and Northern Europe will also take part in the race, for a meeting that will see more than 15 countries represented and a great show in track. The Regulations and participation criteria for the 2018 edition will be presented by next November.

The Italian factory confirmed itself as one of the most dynamic and active in the Rental Kart market, recording organizational and sporting success with its own event dedicated to the Rental tracks that use CRG Karts.

From a sporting point of view, the success went to the Spanish CH-T Gold team of Piñero, Alcaraz and García in the PRO category and to the Italian Chioggia Kart Racing 2 team of Favaretto, Varotto and Polauszach in the SILVER category.

With 38 teams on track from 8 different countries and over 180 drivers, the 3rd edition of the CRG Rental Kart World Contest ended with a very positive organizational and sporting outcome. The 2019 edition of the event was hosted by the Franciacorta track in Italy and took place with an unprecedented format which elected the winners in the two categories (PRO and SILVER) the crews who gained the most points in a race course which scheduled for a Superpole, 2 Sprint races and an 8H Endurance race.

For the drivers and team managers it was an intense commitment on all fronts, which highlighted the most complete teams, capable of expressing both absolute speed in the Superpole and Sprint races, and the collective and most effective strategies in the Endurance race. The flags of 8 nationalities, including China, Germany, Ukraine, Spain, Romania and the Czech Republic, created an incredible choreography at the Drivers Parade, as did the paddock set up with structures of over 400 square meters for the pit boxes and the Hospitality managed by the event partner, the Italian company Fratelli Beretta.

The CRG World Contest has become one of the most coveted trophies among rental kart enthusiasts and allows the teams selected from CRG tracks and events around the world to experience a thrilling competition on the track in an event where the supply of karts and all track services are personally managed by CRG, one of the most prestigious brands in international karting. The organizational standards of the event were confirmed to be of a high level, just as the level and value of the teams involved on the track were very high.

From a sporting point of view, after two free practice sessions, the event got underway with the Superpole, a 10′ session which determined the starting grid of the 1st Sprint Race, but above all assigned the first points valid for the general ranking. In the Pro category the best time went to the Chioggia Kart Racing 1 team, which preceded Gas RT, CH-T Gold, DMS Motorsport and Miout Kart Racing. In the Silver category, however, the Superpole saw Chioggia Kart Racing 2 prevail over Titti’s Fuoriserie and Zena Silver.

In the 2 Sprint races scheduled for each of the two competing categories, a compelling battle immediately emerged in the Pro category between Chioggia Kart Racing 1 and CH-T Gold with the Italian team finishing with a victory and a 3rd place against a victory and a 2nd place by their Spanish opponents. The DMS Motorsport team fit in well among them, taking 5th place in Race 1 and an excellent 2nd place in Race 2. Miout Kart Racing was also in evidence, 3rd at the finish line in Race 1, but only 10th ° place in Race 2 due to a contact.

The Sprint races of the Silver category, however, saw the Allianz and Copat Team Ferito crews equally divide the 1st and 2nd step of the podium: Allianz won Race 1 with their direct opponents in 2nd place, while Race 2 ended in reversed positions. The 3rd step of the podium went to the Spanish team CH-T Black in Race 1 and the German team Arena of Speed ​​II in Race 2.

The 8 Hours Endurance started with a very short provisional ranking and many teams potentially capable of winning, both in the Pro and Silver categories. And after 8 spectacular hours, of great technical balance on the track, of very diversified strategies between the various teams and also 2 interventions by the Safety Car which influenced the planned pit stop program of the individual teams, the Spanish team prevailed in the Pro category CH-T Gold with just 24″ ahead of the Italian team Chioggia Kart Racing 1. With this narrow success and the points gained in the morning, the Spanish crew of Piñero, Alcaraz and García also won the overall category title, preceding the Italian crew managed by the Chioggia circuit (Santi, Brunati and Rossato). Steel Ring Gold from the Czech Republic (Vojtěch, Talaš, Svoboda and Richter) finished in 3rd place among the Pros, while Miout Kart Racing and DMS Motorsport finished in 4th and 5th place. In the general category ranking, DMS Motorsport placed 3rd behind the two top teams taking part in the event and only got the better of Miout in the last driving stint. Following this, 5th place for Steel Ring Gold and 6th position for the Ukrainian team Ingul-kart RT.

In the Silver category, the success of Chioggia Kart Racing 2 (Favaretto, Varotto and Polauszach) was clearer, as it preceded Copat Team Ferlito by 3 laps (Ferlito S., Ferlito D., Ferlito D. and Ferlito R. ) and Bolza Corse (Bimbati, Segato, Mocchiutti, Paganin and Carpenedo). Following were the Spanish crew CH-T Black and Beretta Racing Team, while the Allianz team was unluckier and only finished in 8th position. In the general classification, the Silver Trophy went to Chioggia Kart Racing 2 with 100 points won ahead of Copat Team Ferlito with 96 and Allianz with 71. Followed by an excellent 4th place for CH-T Black, 5th position for Bolza Corse and 6 ° place for Beretta Racing Team.

The next appointment with Endurance Kart by CRG will be the 24 Hours of Italy scheduled on the Adria circuit in April.


The 4th Rental Kart World Contest by CRG has ended with a great organizational and technical success. An organizational success because everything worked excellently in the tight racing programme, from the kart draw, up to the race management with the video controls and the spectacular choreographies of the final day on Sunday. But above all it has been a technical success, as the fleet of 40 CRG Centurion Karts made available to the drivers proved to be high-performance, fun to drive and very balanced, allowing the best drivers to emerge despite 7 different kart draws between Free Practice, Qualifying, Heats, Super Heat and Finals.


The problems that emerged were truly limited and considering that this was CRG’s first commitment to a Sprint format event, everything points to a highly successful future for this type of event.

Over 80 drivers from 15 different countries, all very fast and correct on the track, obviously had a decisive role in the show. The races, starting from the Qualifying Heats, were all exciting, with many sprint finishes and many drivers who lined up on the starting grid of the Finals with concrete ambitions for success. In the PRO category, after the Super Heat, with 40 drivers at the start of the Final, Edgard Kanah was in Pole Position with Mirko Barletta at his side, while the Brazilian Eduardo Favilla and Mirko Lauritostarted from the 2nd row. In the Silver category, however, the starting grid of the Final saw the Canadian Jeffrey Petriello in Pole Position with Federico Gallesi next to him.

The Finals were both spectacular and only decided on the last lap. In the PRO one, Mirko Barletta found the decisive attack on Edgard Kanah only 3 corners from the chequered flag, winning the race with just 95 thousandths of a second over his opponent, while an excellent Diego Colella finished in P3, slowed down at the end by a brake failure. Christian Resa, Mirko Laurito and Alessandro Grilli climbed onto the podium expanded to 6 drivers, with the latter taking P6 from Massimiliano Cavalieri who received a penalty from the stewards, dropping to P8. The race of the Hungarian Tamás Kender-Molnár was also excellent, 7th at the finish line just ahead of Cavalieri, while the top ten was completed by Marco Ferazzini and Alessio Zacchi, P9 and P10 at the finish line respectively. After an excellent start, Favilla fell to 11th place, while Alessandro Nicali took P12 ahead of Diego Pedrotti, Marco Strafurini and the Spaniard Jose Luis Chicharro.

Great show also in the Silver Final, a race which saw 5 drivers taking the chequered flag within just 4 tenths of a second and the victory going to the Canadian Jeffrey Petriello over his compatriot Pier-Luc Ouellette. Lorenzo Cioni finished in P3, ahead of Mauro Nicola and Riccardo Barge, with the latter slipping from 2nd to 5th place due to a 3″ penalty received from the Race Direction. Tarik Almou took the last step of the podium, ahead of Alessandro Russo, Simone Grasso, Federico Gallesi and Stefano Schena. The three ladies competing were unlucky (Anna Wodecka, Nicole and Rosanna Marziano), all forced to retire in the Final, but they were all really fast in the Qualifying phases and in the Super Heats.

The trophies reserved for the Teams went to Zena Karting for the PRO category and to the Canadian team TAG Karting for the Silver one.

Having archived this 4th edition of the Rental Kart World Contest with a very positive result in its new configuration with Sprint format, the CRG Management has already confirmed the event will take place in the same configuration also in 2024.

In the last few days, CRG management officially presented the 2024 Rental Kart World Contest, the meeting dedicated to the world of Rental Kart with Sprint format organized by CRG. After having already made official that it will be the Cremona circuit in Italy to host this prestigious international event on the weekend of October 5 – 6, the guidelines of the regulations and some new featureshave also been outlined, especially regarding the criteria for dividing the drivers into the three categories allowed.

The race format will be the Sprint one, therefore single drivers will be admitted divided into three categories: the Junior class for children aged 14 to 18, the PRO one which will be the top class for drivers over 18 years old and, finally, the SILVER category for those more amateur drivers, who must be over 45 years old and/or has a minimum weight of 85kg. In the context of each category in the race, a special women’s ranking will also be drawn up which will reward the best 3 ladies at the finish line.


Talking about the ranking, this will be one of the most important innovations of the 2024 edition, in fact, the driver who will win the Final will not be the champion, but the title will be assigned by adding the points won by the individual drivers in each phase of the event, from the Qualification stages to the Final. There will be 4 scores to be added together: those attributed to the Qualifying Practice, the Heats (2 races for each category), the Pre-Final and the Final. Obviously the Final, which will be held over a distance of 30′ and 1 lap, will maintain a decisive role within the event and will award the highest number of points.

The 2024 Rental Kart World Contest will last 2 days with Free Practice, Qualifying Practice and Eliminatory Heats scheduled for Saturday 5 October, while the Pre-Finals and Finals will take place on Sunday. On Friday 4 October, especially for the benefit of the many non-Italian drivers, some Free Practice sessions will be organised.

Like every edition, CRG will produce a brand-new fleet of CRG Centurion Rental karts equipped with a 390cc Honda engine, which will be drawn by participants at each entry onto the track. The 2024 edition will see over 200 drivers competing, divided into the three permitted categories, representing over 15 different nationalities. The organizational standards will be high and will include many on-circuit services for the drivers and an important communication plan.

The full regulation will be published in the Rental Kart World Contest section on the official CRG website after May 15th, while registration will officially open on June 3rd.
