ECKC: Victory for Gianfranco Mazzaferro in Rotax Mini-Max
It was a rough weekend for Gianfranco Mazzaferro (Scuderia Karting/CRG) leading up to today’s final, as even though he qualified on the pole-position for both races this weekend, his luck during the races found him down the order more often than not. After spinning in turn one on the start of the pre-final, Mazzaferro hopes were dashed once again, but a great drive gave him a great starting spot for the final. Making his move for second place on fourth lap, he then set his eyes on Saturdays winner, Alexander Murphy (PSL Karting/CRG). Tracking him down, Mazzaferro wasted no time getting into the lead, and from there, kept the hammer down, en route to one of the biggest victories of his young career.
Murphy was able to hold off Matthew Thomas (PSL Karting/CRG), who started from the rear after a pre-final technical DQ, to take second. While Austin Riley (Intrepid North America/Praga) and Jacob Ewaniuk (Sportality/Intrepid) completed the top-five.
