ALEX NINOVIC CONTESTS THE ROK CUP SUPERFINAL IN ITALY
The town of Lonato in Northern Italy again hosted the ROK Cup Superfinal from October 13th to 16th 2021 at the South Garda Circuit.
This world event attracted some 500 Kart racers, with the current Australian KA4 Champion Alex Ninovic making his second trip representing leading Italian Kart manufacturer PCR.
Flying the Aussie flag in the junior division, 14-year-old Alex Ninovic from Sydney was up against 101 of the world best junior Kart racers.
Only 34 drivers made it through 3 days of pre-qualifying. Alex was lucky to make the final after suffering a brake failure, destroying his Kart, leaving him very bruised. With a new PCR Factory Kart on standby, Ninovic junior was back on track scoring enough points to start the final in 29th position. Contested over 16 laps of the 1.3 km circuit, Alex pushed hard, moving forward to finish in 19th place.
“Coming back to Italy and racing in the ROK Cup Superfinal again is so rewarding”. “Knowing you are racing the worlds best drivers is so cool, it was unfortunate we experienced mechanical issues that put us too back down the grid to show our true potential”, said Alex Ninovic.
