The twenty-ninth edition of the international trophy named after Andrea Margutti is now in the archives, history. An edition honored by 252 drivers. Five categories present, from KZ2 to X30 Senior. A springlike Friday gave hope for fine weather heats and finals, but then incessant rain hit for an almost “British” Margutti Trophy, in which four Italians excelled: Alessio Lorandi (KZ2, pictured), Enzo Trulli (OKJ), Andrea Rosso (OK) and Marco Moretti (X30 Senior). Sole foreign success was Coskun Irfan in the 60 Mini.

In Europe, and especially in Italy, it was pretty much the same. Engines in use ranged from Garelli, Guazzoni, JLO, McCulloch to name, but a few were all originally designed for other purposes.
