ACI Sport proposes immediate license suspension of Corberi, Lonato kart track
The Italian federation wants to come down hard on those involved.
The Italian motor racing federation has proposed immediate suspension of the licenses of Luca and Marco Corberi along with the Lonato kart track.
The Italian motor racing federation wants the Federal Prosecutor to come down harsh on the Corberi family by serving them with a maximum sanction possible, for the incident during the FIA World Karting Championship's finale at Lonato kart track.
In a dramatic incident caught on camera, L Corberi first threw his kart's front wing on rival Paolo Ippolito during the KZ final race after being taken out by him, and then engaged in a fight in parc ferme, with his father Marco involved along with Tony Kart personnel.
Ippolito fought back with his father also involved along with CRG personnel. Both were disqualified from the race by ACI Sport as they initiated their investigation along with the FIA, where President Felipe Massa warned of 'heavy consequences'.
While a report is awaited, for now, ACI Sport released a statement asking for larger sanctions on the Corberi family and Lonato track. As immediate requirment, the proposal is to suspend the licenses of the racer, his father and the track.
On Monday, L Corberi vowed never to return to racing in his own reaction, while apologising for his actions. The ACI statement goes: "The ACI Sports Board examined in depth what happened in the South Garda Kartodromo in Lonato, during the race valid for the KZ World Championship held on 4 October.
"The Sports Council, confirming the harsh and firm condemnation for what happened, invited the Federal Prosecutor to consider proposing to the Sports Judge the maximum sanction provided for by the Regulations and, as a preliminary, the immediate suspension of the licenses of Luca Corberi, Marco Corberi and than that of the Circuit. The council also reserves the right to take further initiatives."
There will be consequences as per FIA Karting President.
