As the 2023 karting season gets closer, Parolin Motorsport is pleased to announce a new collaboration with the Modena Kart team, who will use Parolin chassis to compete in both national and international events and will be directly supported by the Italian constructor.
Motivated by the ambition to build on the success achieved in recent years, Parolin Motorsport and Modena Kart join forces. Following the private team’s victory at the KZ2 FIA Karting International Super Cup in 2020, the Italian constructor won the same title in 2021 with Lorenzo Travisanutto. After having proven their potential individually, the two teams will work together in order to create a leading organisation for the shifter categories in the main international and national competitions, including WSK, FIA and ACI races. Francesco Celenta and Lorenzo Travisanutto, the two KZ factory drivers, will still be managed by Parolin Motorsport and their engines will be officially powered by TM Kart. However, on a logistical level, both Parolin standard bearers will rely on Modena Kart’s new structure and their expertise will contribute to the development of the KZ2 compartment as well. In fact, the private team will be responsible for managing and coordinating the KZ2 activities on behalf of the Italian constructor, and the driver line-up will be announced in the coming days.
Modena Kart’s commitment will not be limited only to the shifter categories, as Parolin Motorsport’s new partner will introduce this promising project in the OK-N and X30 single-speed classes too, featuring the kart that was recently crowned OKJ European champion. Furthermore, the private team will exploit Parolin chassis to pursue their goals in MINI, a category where the Italian constructor’s karts are consistently emerging as absolute protagonists. Modena Kart will keep supplying their youngest drivers with the TM engines tuned by MA Engines, which will pair up with the Opportunity chassis, the reigning champions in all WSK series as well as in the Italian ACI Karting Championship.
The agreement between Parolin Motorsport and Modena Kart is testimony to the Italian constructor’s steady effort and expansion. Moreover, this new partnership emphasises the premium quality that distinguishes the products manufactured by Parolin Racing Kart, a group who always aims to satisfy stakeholders with competitive chassis and complete assistance.
Marco Parolin, Parolin Motorsport General Manager: “I’m thrilled to start collaborating with the Modena Kart team. I’ve always had a lot of admiration for their work; they built a respectable reputation on the international scene through the years and it must not be taken for granted when it comes to private teams. The fact that they have chosen to collaborate with us is a source of pride. They have significant experience in the shifter categories, which represent an area that we as Parolin want to further strengthen. We will entrust them with the management of the KZ2 class for national and international commitments, while providing them with technical support”.
Gabriele Finocchi, Modena Kart Team Manager: “We are very delighted that a prestigious company such as Parolin assigns us the task of managing the KZ2 category. At the same time, we will also continue focusing on our programs with the MINI and single-speed classes at a national level. Being able to collaborate closely with Marco and Parolin’s technical staff is an honour, as well as an excellent opportunity. The level of our competitors is certainly high, but we will work hard together with Parolin in order to be ready for the appointments that count”.
