The collaboration between NGM Motorsport and the CRG Factory will be very close for the KZ2 category, in which the Venetian team will line up three drivers of undisputed value: Giacomo Pollini, Natalia Balbo and Leonardo Bizzotto.
NGM Motorsport is a very important reality in the field of national and international karting and boasts in its Palmares various Italian titles and two prestigious placings in FIA Karting events: 3rd place in the KZ2 International Super Cup last year and 2nd place in the 2018 European Championship.
The company was founded in 2013 by three friends and former kart drivers: Nico Biasuzzi, Ermanno Feltrin (Geo) and Moreno Fortuni. The focus of the project for all three founding members has always been the racing team which, in addition to being committed to international and national KZ2 races, also manages drivers in the Direct Drive and Mini classes, providing a complete service thanks to the great experience of its technicians.
As for the 2021 sports programs, for the KZ2 drivers, the goals will be the FIA Karting European Championship and the FIA Karting International Super Cup, in addition to the Italian Championship and some International Trophies, while for the other categories the reference program will be the IAME X30.
“NGM’s technical staff and drivers have shown that they can compete internationally and this collaboration allows us to further strengthen ourselves in the KZ category, which represents a very important market segment for CRG”, says CRG president Giancarlo Tinini. “It will be a technical and sporting collaboration with high added value: it will allow us to have competitive drivers able to obtain important results with our colors. At the same time, it will guarantee us important feedback also from a technical point of view. We will give them all the technical support they need to achieve the ambitious results we are both aiming for and we will also closely follow their work in the youth classes where they have several drivers who can do very well at the national level.”
