BEZUIDENHOUT, PULCINI, PARKINS, ZANI. CHAMPIONS OF THE ROK CUP INTERNATIONAL 10 YEARS OF ACTIVITY.
The spectacular final of the Rok Cup International Final 2012 ended with hardhearted emotions. At the South Garda (Italy) the most important Rok Cup 2012 titles are shared by South Africa and Italy.

Nathan Parkins wins the hardest competition of all finals, the Roks. The South African drivers overtakes with a final sprint the Italian Riccardo Geltrude in the final centimeters of the track. In the Mini Rok category leading the heat Clinton Bezuidenhout in the youngest Rokker category. Leonardo Pulcini is the Junior Rok champion, after having pushed the kart hardly to win over Cosimo Durante and Giuseppe Gaglian. Super Rok category is also full of excitement. Christopher Zani leads a train made up of Nirei Fukuzumi and Luca Osvaldi. Under the chequered flag the first is Riccardo Cinti, but the penalty for his early starting stops his race. Finals awards took place in the huge Rok tent at the inside of the paddock, in a party atmosphere, very good for the Rok ten years of activity!

MINI ROK. BEZUIDENHOUT WINS EVERYTHING. LEGERET CHAMPION OF ALTRUISM
Clinton Bezuidenhouts success comes with the seventh place in the qualifying heats, conquering the first row and winning all three heats. During the final is Bezuidenhout jumping to the top position with a good gap over other chasers, first of all Liam Pienaar and Giovanni Di Giannantonio, and thus perfectly succeeding. In the first heats Alex Nocella, author of a very good recovery after a not very brilliant qualifying and Ricardo Feller, signing the best lap in final, withdraw. Pienaar and Di Giannantonio fight on equal terms and finally is Pienaar winning over the Italian driver.
Besides the rejoicing success of Bezuidenhout is a special success awarded for the great generosity and altruism of the driver. We talk about the young Rokker Lucas Legeret who while racing sees his rival Matvey Maslov under his kart after an incident and immediately stops for helping him. Maslov luckily got off with no injuries and Lucas Legeret deserved from his side the success on the podium during the Rok Party Saturday night.

JUNIOR ROK. PULCINI SUCCEEDS
Leonardo Pulcini sings the pole ahead of the other Italian driver Cosimo Durante and the Polish Karol Lubas. Four place goes to the South African driver Bradley Liebenberg.
First heats shuffle the cards, actually the wet track makes shining the Portuguese Eduardo Jesus, winner of a heat with rain tires. On the dry asphalt two times winners are Pulcini, Lubas and Durante, one heat each is won by Giuseppe Gaglian, Federico Squaranti, Bradley Liebenberg and the already mentioned Jesus. The final is all for Pucini. The young Italian driver is very fast and wise when soon takes advantage of the hard fight behind his shoulders. In particular the fight in the
first heats is among Lubas and Squaranti. In the ninth heat Polish driver tries to overtake the leader Pulcini but his car is sideways and Squaranti crashes, both drivers lose important meters and have to say goodbye to the title. Free from Lubas and Squarantis strain, Pulcini runs fast away round after round and keeps well away drivers at his shoulder. Durante, Gaglian and the Australian Andrew Kahl tries a desperate recovery but the title is now of Leonardo Pulcini who after the Rok Cup Italy takes home also the most prestigious Rok Cup title. Final podium is this way all-Italian, with Durante and Gaglian next to the new International champion.

SUPER ROK, ZANI CONFIRMS TO BE THE CHAMPION FOR THE SECOND TIME
In the Super Rok category, too, emotions dont miss. In the heats winners are Cinti, Zanchi, Fukuzumi and Basiliotti. But also many other Rokkers seems ready to fight for the title, among them are Vantini, Costantini, Caponi, Zani, Osvaldi and Preisig.
Matteo Zanchi is the finals leader of the first part of the race. The driver from Bergamo misleads the experienced driver Riccardo Cinti who starts in second place, together with him in first row. Zanchi jumps at the starting grid leaving all other drivers behind but Marshalls impose the Rok Cup Italys winner a penalty. Zanchi seems unstoppable during the first rounds, runs fast and lets drivers at his shoulders fight. Cinti and Cristopher Zani get out of the way from hard rivals such as Alessandro Vantini, Luca Osvaldi and the Swiss lady Jasmine Preisig. At the fifth round the race gets hot, Zanchi has some problems and slows down, Cinti, Zani, Osvaldi and the Japanese Nirei Fukuzumi jump to the top positions and lead the race until the end. Actually final rounds are decisive. Cinti jumps to the success, but its unfortunately not confirmed since he gets a penalty of 10 tenths for his unfair start. Success is then for Zani, Fukuzumi and Osvaldi. This last driver tries to overtake Fukuzumi in the last bends and succeeds over the experienced Japanese driver. This
way Zani has some centimeters of gap and wins the Rok Cup International title. Cristopher Zani is so the Super categorys champion for the second year consecutively. Only Alessandro Vantini in the Super class and Steven Brotto in the Mini Rok were able to do this.

ROK SENIOR. PARKINS TAKES THE SECOND TITLE TO SOUTH AFRICA
With the Polish driver Michal Grzyb winning the pole for just 032 hundredth over Riccardo Geltrude the situation soon seems hard. Short ranking and small gaps are in the heats too, with three drivers running pretty faster than the others. They are Grzyb, Geltrude and the South African Nathan Parkins, all of them winners of two heats each. The start sees Grzyb in mistake from the first row. Polish driver starts ahead of time and rivals soon gets him who goes to the ninth place after the first round. First rounds see Geltrude, Moriondo and Parkins leading the race ahead of another group of three drivers made up of the Lady Arianna Armati, the Venezuelan Sidney Gomez and again after a recovery Grzyb.
At the twelfth round Parkins overtakes without hesitation Geltrude, and seems to run far away but Geltrude reacts accelerating and taking again the lead of the race.
Finally the race is done. Geltrude probably too much excited loses the small gap over Parkins and Grzyb, now third. Parkins overtakes the Italian driver but Geltrude jumps ahead and the three drivers face together the last bend. Geltrude tries to stay in the middle but Parkins runs over a perfect trajectory and jumps winning the title for just 12o hundredths! Finally Geltrude is second and Armati third place, for the 3 of penalty suffered from Grzyb for his irregular start.
