The growth of the technical sector continues within the official Kalì Kart Racing TeamThe Tinini Group team, in fact, has announced the arrival of Mariano De Faveri with the title of full time Chief Technician starting from April. De Faveri was already involved in the Kalì Kart team since January as technical support, but essentially on a half-service basis, having also maintained his role within the data acquisition department in the official CRG Team.

The decision to allocate him exclusively to the Kalì Kart team was taken directly by Giancarlo Tinini to whom De Faveri will report for all technical issues. This internal operation underlines the growing sporting and commercial ambitions that the CRG Marketing and Management place on the Kalì Kart project. Mariano De Faveri will be assisted by Roberto Musio and Sebastiano Monte, who will share many of the team’s technical and management responsibilities.

The first appointment on the track with the technical structure implemented will already be this week during the WSK Open Series, a race scheduled on the Franciacorta track, in which 5 official Kalì Kart drivers will get on the track: Ben Piscopo and Cristian Blandino in the Mini category, the debutant Sam Woolley in OK – N Junior class, Stefano Pedani in the OKN one and Simone Bianco in the KZ2 category.


The Kalì Kart Racing Team is pleased to welcome Sam Woolley who will join the team for the OK Junior category. The English driver was born in Urmstom, Manchester in September 2010 and began racing go-karts at the age of 8 in the Mini categories, achieving many notable results at national level. His first international experiences were made in the X30 Junior category in which, at the beginning of this season, he won the Hivern Cup Spain and obtained P2 in the Winter Cup of Valencia.

For Sam, the move to the official Kalì Kart team means taking a new step in his career by debuting in FIA races. The first event in which he will take part will be the European Championship in Slovakia next June and after that he will be among the protagonists of the OK Junior World Championship which will take place on his home track, the PFI in England.

Sam has already taken part in a testing day with the Kalì Kart team and in order to begin his journey of understanding the technical staff, the working methodologies and the new material, he will take part in the WSK Open race in the OK- N Junior category scheduled on the Franciacorta track the first week of April.

This is how the young English driver commented on the move to the Kalì Kart team:

“The opportunity that has arisen to join the Kalì Kart Factory Team will allow me to enter a second phase of my experience in karting, taking part in the international OK Junior races within a highly experienced team with great technical means. The first important event for me will be the European Championship race in Slovakia, but obviously I will carry out a specific preparation program for the race in England, where the World Championship will take place in September. The first feedback I had from the team was very positive, as was the performance, although now my main objective will be to learn as OK Junior is a substantially new category for me”.


The 1st of the four rounds of the 2024 FIA European Championship for the OK and OK Junior categories ended on the Valencia circuit in Spain. The official Kalì Kart team took part in this important international meeting with two drivers in the OK category: Stefano Pedani and Peter Stiller.

The experience was very positive, despite the delay with which the tires for the direct drive categories were established (contract transferred to Maxxis instead of 2023 MG tires ), objectively created many problems in the preparation phases of this event. There were some ups and downs during the weekend and, above all, Peter Stiller suffered some problems in finding the right feeling with the setup, failing to qualify for the Final. Stefano Pedani’s weekend, however, was on the rise, first doing well in qualifying for the Final, despite two penalties for the spoiler costing him over 20 positions on the starting grid, and subsequently among the fastest in the Final, where he recovered 20 positions, finishing in P16. Sporting results aside, the positive feedback was above all of a technical nature, thanks to the great work done by the team which created the foundations for the upcoming international events.

This is how Stefano Pedani commented on his weekend: “I am very happy with the result, we were fast right from Free Practice and in the Final the chassis setup and the TM engine were perfect. We are doing a good team work and constantly improving; therefore, we can look to the future with ever greater ambitions.”

 The next appointment with the FIA ​​European Championship is scheduled for April in France.

There will be two official Kalì Kart drivers taking part in the FIA European Championship in Valencia this weekend: Stefano Pedani and Peter Stiller. Both will be competing in the OK top class with the aim of scoring their first points of the season.

The FIA European Championship will be divided into 4 events and therefore each result will be important in terms of the general ranking. After Spain, the Championship will stop in France, followed by Slovakia and, finally, in August in Sweden. After the Champions of the Future race, in which the major teams prepared this first test of the season, a lot of work was done at the Kalì Kart Factory to bring some technical evolutions capable of guaranteeing a better feeling for the drivers. In particular, we have worked on the new Maxxis tires which the drivers and technical staff discovered only a few days before the Champions of the Future race. From this point of view, the first free practices on Thursday will be very important, while from Friday the track will offer the first official feedback with qualifying practice and the start of the eliminatory races. The Super Heat and the Finals are scheduled for Sunday.

Per seguire l’evento in diretta saranno disponibili sul sito il Live Timing ed il Live Streaming.


This week the Tinini Group has launched the new Kalì Kart website. This is a further piece of the promotion plan of the historic Kalì Kart brand, which implements the communication area, providing users with an online platform complete with all useful information regarding the range of chassis, the activity of the Kalì Kart Racing Team and contacts relating to the sales and assistance network.

The website has a simple but refined layout and also from a content point of view it has an essential and very functional format. The three main sections will allow users to have all the information on the company and the history of Kalì Kart, the brand on which CRG itself was founded and which boasts 10 world titles under its belt. The second section and heart of the site concerns the range of produced chassis, with all the technical data sheets, images and the possibility of downloading all the homologation fiches. The third main section of the homepage is dedicated to the Racing Team, so that all Karting enthusiasts can have a direct line with the racing division and constant feedback on the evolution of Racing chassis. The website is completed by the news section, constantly updated, as well as the part dedicated to sportswear and the product catalogue.

It is worth saying that the Kalì Kart communication platform is already active with its own pages on Facebook and Instagram, both with the official Kalì Kart account. Plese find here the link to visit the official Kalì Kart website:


It was a weekend with many ups and downs for the Kalì Kart colors at the WSK Super Master Series in Franciacorta.

Certainly not the result we wanted, especially in the MINI category, where we only lost the opportunity at the last corner of the Final to get back to the lead of the championship with Cristian Blandino. It was also a shame that Pedro Campus retired in the Prefinal after he had done very well in Qualifying with an excellent P4 overall.

But above all, the weekend of Simone Bianco and Aleksandar Bogunovic was difficult in KZ: all the big names from that category were there and for both Kalì Kart drivers at their first experiences it was not possible to enter the 36 finalists, despite some excellent indications regarding their potential.

Very simular situation for Oskar Poberaj in OK Junior: in his second race in this category, several times he had the speed of the best but he also made some normal mistakes due to his lack of experience.

Finally, both Peter Stiller and Stefano Pedani did an excellent job in OK running good Heats and completing a very intense work program with both the chassis and the engines. Unfortunately Stiller had a technical problem in the Prefinal and his retirement excluded him from the finalists, while Pedani finished the Final P23.

The Kalì Kart project is young, but the team is working very hard in preview of the next International events and in the coming weeks some new additions of technicians are expected to make the racing team of this glorious brand increasingly ambitious.

Another positive weekend for Kalì Kart Racing in the 2nd Round of the WSK Super Master Series. In the Mini category Cristian Blandino confirmed himself at the top and after taking POLE in Qualifying Practice, he won 2 Heats out of three. Unfortunately in the Prefinal he was stopped by a broken chain, but in the Final, after leading the race until the last lap he finished P2.

Pedro Campos also did very well in the Mini Under 10 class: started at the back of the grid due to a contact in the Prefinal and recovered 23 positions finishing the race P13, while Domenico Coco was classified P31.

The OK drivers’ weekend was more difficult with Stefano Pedani and Aleksandar Bogunovic both qualified for the Final, but out of the top ten, due to some contacts caused by the difficult and slippery track when switching between rain and slick tires. Unfortunately, 2 retirements in the Heats excluded Peter Stiller from the Final, but his performances showed great potential in many phases of the weekend.

Now that the Cremona race is over it’s already time to think about Round 3 scheduled for Franciacorta next weekend.


The WSK Super Master Series Rnd. 1 in Lonato has been a very useful weekend from a technical point of view for the Kalì Kart official team.

For the first time, the Kalì Kart squad was on track in full force in the Mini, OK and KZ categories and it is normal that some organizational and technical mechanisms were not yet at 100% of the potential. The balance of the weekend was in any case positive, both from a sporting and technical point of view. For what concerns the results, Cristian Blandino’s new win in the Mini category stands out: he now leads the championship standings with 76 points.

Also Nikita Ljubimov had a leading weekend with Kalì Kart colours. The Estonian driver started P3 in the Final and finished P5 under the chequered flag, after having also been leader of the race. The weekend for the Mini drivers in the Under 10 class was more complicated, with Ben Piscopo out of the Final after a contact in Qualifying, which compromised his weekend and Pedro Campus only P29, due to some technical problems.

In the OK category, the weekend was very useful for understanding the functioning of the 2024 tires, which required many setup adjustments to achieve a good level of performance. The best of the Kalì Kart drivers was Peter Stiller who started P17 from the starting grid of the Final, after excellent performances in the Qualifying Heats, but his Final ended due to a contact after just 3 corners of the 1st lap. Aleksandar Bogunovic, very fast in the Prefinal on Sunday morning, unfortunately suffered an engine problem in the Final, finishing only P23, while Stefano Pedani missed the Final by a few points.

Finally, first race with the sole aim of gaining experience for Simone Bianco in KZ. His weekend was as expected with many ups and downs but a lot of potential has already been seen and his adaptation process to the new category will be very rapid.

Next race: Cremona in 2 weeks.
