Nicky Gauci to Debut at Franciacorta Ahead of Le Mans

Nicky Gauci is preparing to take on the Rotax Max Challenge, Italia in Franciacorta on June 16, 2024. This marks Nicky’s inaugural appearance at the renowned Franciacorta circuit, where he will be racing with the prestigious MKC Motorsport team. This race serves as a pivotal warm-up for Nicky, ahead of the RMC International Trophy in Le Mans this July.

Nicky’s career took a significant leap with a standout victory in the 2018 RMC Italia Zona Sicilia Championship. This triumph set the stage for a series of impressive achievements, including titles in the 2020 RMC Malta Championship, the 2020 National Rotax Championship, and a repeat of these victories in 2021. These successes propelled Nicky onto the international stage, securing spots in elite competitions such as the RMC Italia Final in Val Vibrata 2018, the RMC Grand Finals 2020 in Portimao, Portugal (canceled due to COVID-19), and the RMC Grand Finals 2021 in Sakhir, Bahrain. Notably, he achieved the best result ever for a Maltese driver at the RMC Grand Finals, finishing 22nd out of 74 drivers in Bahrain in 2021.

In 2022, Nicky made a shift to the Iame X30 category while retaining his passion for Rotax engines, competing internationally. His 2023 season saw him race in the RMC Euro Trophy across Spain, Belgium, and France, demonstrating his versatility and commitment.

Nicky’s performances at the RMC International Trophy in Le Mans in both 2022 and 2023 have cemented his reputation on the international karting scene, earning him respect and recognition from competitors and officials alike. His efforts have been acknowledged by the Malta Motorsport Federation with nominations and awards in 2018 and 2023, celebrating his contributions to the sport.

The upcoming race in Franciacorta is a strategic endeavour for Nicky, designed to sharpen his skills for the challenges that lie ahead in Le Mans. His participation is backed by loyal sponsors including Mediterranean Building Finishes, KPL Racing team, and BMW Malta. Additionally, Nicky extends his gratitude to Sport Malta for their continued support.


As he prepares for Franciacorta, Nicky Gauci carries with him the experience and drive that have characterized his career. Racing with the trusted MKC Motorsport team, Nicky is poised to once again leave his mark on the karting world.
