Thank you to all the people close to me in so many different ways for making this 2022 so challenging, special and rewarding! such a learning and growing experience to keep sharing with all of you in 2023! Thank you!
Every time I visit the place it truly represents the values that Horacio Pagani has set inspired by Leonardo da Vinci: art and science.
The mix is also quite evident in the latest unique racing machine, the Zonda Revo Barchetta.
On behalf of RPM, Riccardo Paterni has made a presentation during the kick-off event relevant to the IV Edition of TACC Program UNIMORE .
The program this edition features 48 students from several countries and with several academic backgrounds, its aim is to stimulate the development of start-ups relevant to the changes, evolutions and revolutions in the mobility field.
Quarrar Firhand, LA Motorsport, took a solid fifth place in the ROK SUPERFINAL 2022 MINI category at the South Garda Karting track in Lonato. There were 84 category participants in the Superfinal and Quarrar always managed to stand out in the top positions during qualifying, eliminatory heats, semi-final and final heats.
Congratulations to Quarrar whom is gradually becoming more and more familiar with the dynamics of our integrated mental training method; we are increasingly focusing to customize the method execution to the needs and opportunities for growth and development that this very young Indonesian talent is showing.
On October 8th and 9th 2022 it was held at the Lonato South Garda Karting track, Italy, the traditional Trofeo Delle Industrie: the oldest karting race that this edition has reached the 50th anniversary. This race alone, in itself, represents traditionally the very top of international karting in terms of drivers and technology. Lorenzo Baldassarri and myself have followed Qarrar Firhand (Mini category, LA Motorsport Team, Parolin chassis, IAME engine) during the event racing activities. We have continued to implement Qarrar’s customized integrated mental training following MindUP Enhancement Psychology ® method and protocols.
Qarrar is progressively and markedly continuing his development path, more aware and self assured than ever, enabling the expression of his raising talent. Concrete results are naturally emerging from this: a spectacular, fun to watch for the passes, win during the heats path and consistently within the top six, that has been his solid result during the final.
It is a pleasure for us to work with such promising talent that since the very first steps of the method (during the assessment) has embraced the pragmatic approach (data driven, performance focused) that characterizes our protocols.
Overall the approach is also stimulating his progressive natural growth not only as a talented driver but also as a young person learning more about himself while having the spirited fun that characterizes his young age and development.
Mind UP Enhancement Psychology ® has started a project in Dino Paoli Srl, a company that has been a leading player in the world of motorsport at an international level since over 50 years. The focus of the project is on the development of individual and group performance, utilizing our methods and protocols, and in the spirit of motorsport values.
Riccardo, together with MindUp Enhancement Psychology method creator and business partner, Lorenzo Baldassarri, has begun an integrated mental training program focusing on two assessment sessions involving Qarrar Firhand (Indonesian, racing in the Italian karting championship) and Josue’ David Gilles Polo Zuniga (that recently completed the Italian Karting Federation Summer Camp in Sarno).
The program, as per protocol method, has been characterized by an innovative combination of several technological tools to gather and assess relevant data regarding the integrated cognitive, emotional, physiological and muscular/postural focus featured by MindUp Enhancement Psychology.
Next the elaboration and deployment of a customised mental training program to the specific individual needs.
Riccardo’s friend Silvio Pederzini has driven his GRD S74 Hart engine (recently brought to a new life while completing a meticulous skilled restoring project) at Imola track during the Historic Minardi Day 2022. Stefano Cecconi, President of the Ruote Classiche Club Prato was present to our box. Oracio Pagani also came by. As usual the Historic Mindardi Day is ‘must be there’ place for all of us passionate about motorsport in Italy and also beyond Italian borders.
During the last 10 years ACISport has organized a karting school summer camp for young drivers (from 6 to 11 years old). This year edition has hosted 23 drivers at integrated facilities of the Circuito di Napoli in Sarno.
It has been a fantastic experience to follow closely over the three days with my grandson Josue’ David Gilles that as a beginner has learned a lot during the three days thanks to the competence and care of the professionals involved with the federation.
