It was Nicoletti's first year working full time on the world karting circuit for FotoFormulaK however the young Italian beauty has been involved in racing since the late 1990's as a driver when she raced right up the top level of 100cc Intercontinental A in the Italian Open Championships before finally hanging up her helmet to concentrate on photography full time in 2010.
