Luca Corberi took the drastic measure after throwing an object at a competitor in the middle of the race.
The last date of Karting World In the KZ category, which was held in Italy, it generated a huge impact due to a reprehensible situation starring the pilot Luca Corberi, who threw a part of his kart at his colleague Paolo Ippolito during the race and then rebuked him in the pits. Corberi reappeared on Monday with the publication of a message on his networks in which, among other things, he asserted that he will never compete again in his life.
“I would like to apologize to the motorsports community for what I did. There are no excuses to explain why I did such an embarrassing act. This was something that I have never done in my 15-year career and I hope that no one else will see it in the future, “said the publication in the foreground.
He then stated: “After the race, after the sports judges summoned me, I asked them to withdraw my license. I was fully aware that my mistakes were irreparable, but they showed me that they do not have the power to do so, it is something that is written in international standards. So please don’t charge at them, they were doing their job in the best possible way “
Corberi, 23, then recounted his drastic decision: “For this reason I decided not to participate in any other motorsport competition for the rest of my life. It’s not self-righteous, it’s just the right thing to do. My family has been in karting since 1985, we have seen it grow, we have seen the worst and the best. This episode will be remembered as one of the worst in our sport and that is something I will never forget. “
And he concluded: “I am not asking for indulgence, because I do not deserve it. I will fully agree to the required punishments. I am writing today to apologize even if it is not enough because after all the bad things that happened during this event, the worst was me, a boy who loves this sport and after the worst day of his life he will still remember his good racing moments. Thank you”.
