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.

I am often on the go moving through projects and places yet it is in Rome where I always find a special inspiring atmosphere thanks to the creativity, care and passion of my friend Alberto Giorgio, a collector of vintage road and racing cars.
Yesterday office on the go was particularly inspiring with the presence of three vintage cars unique on their own for various objective and personal reasons. A Corvette C4 (owned by the the Carlo Giorgio, Alberto’s father and 1973 Italian F3 Champion with the iconic March 733 UFO); a Porsche 944 Turbo S, unique in its own right (only approx 1000 built); a Honda NSX (a car that in its engineering still carries the care and talent of the legendary Ayrton Senna whom advised and tested its development).
Not only Alberto collects such works of engineering and art, he also let’s it creativity flow in pictures that appear to properly give some sort of living soul to them.
After four year it was time for Riccardo to get back on a top karting track he is very familiar with, where he feels at home: the Siena Circuit. He was there with his wife Julia, his grandson Josue’ David Gilles (10 years old first time driving) and two friends, Marco and Massimo Chini.
It was a fun day! we tested the Birel 125cc no shifter and also the Honda 4 strokes before enjoying a light lunch in the pleasant atmosphere of the track restaurant.
As always, thank you to the entire Torsellini family for the kind and professional hospitality.
Knowledge in todays’ organizations is something in continuos dynamic flux in order to reach, develop and sustain a competitive advantage; the reason for it: it becomes obsolete fast.
I come to truly understand the key meaning and reach of futuristic managerial classic research I learned during my studies in the USA: “The Knoledge Creating Company” and “The Future of Management”. This happens in light of the much more recent work and research brought forward on innovation by Dipl.Ing. Lars Behrendt and serendipidty and connecting the dots by Christian Busch.
All of this research sets people at the center of development processes that are more technological then ever. This is a very interesting and crucial phenomena set to radically change the way we interpret and live organizations while they create value in order to survive and grow within consistently changing conditions and disruptions coming from all sorts of different sides.
The key is to focus on individual and team performance to createvalue perceived by the client.
At MindUP Enhancement Psychology we enable to reach the pick of such performance while focusing also on people wellbeing and performance sustainabikity. Our research, method and protocols in order to enhance such individual and group performance are data focused and performance driven , active in sport (our method took origin within the top echelon of motorsport) as well as the organizational world.
Stay tuned for fascinating and far reaching insights on how this process generates innovation and creates lasting value …
