GREAT FINALE IN CASTELLETTO FOR THE WSK MASTER SERIES.
Next weekend the International circuit "7 Laghi" in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia, Italy) hosts the closing event of the WSK Master Series 2013. The fourth round will be raced on the 1,256 metres of the northern racetrack, and the winners of the four categories - 60 Mini, KF Junior, KF and KZ2 - will get their prizes on Sunday 14th July, at the end of long racing day, with the Finals which will take place in the afternoon hours. The recap of the whole weekend will be on TV thanks to the usual Friday appointment on Rai Sport 2, on 19th July.
VERSTAPPEN HEADING TOWARDS SUCCESS IN KZ2.
The Dutch Max Verstappen (CRG-TM-Bridgestone), winner of the CIK-FIA European KZ championship last Sunday in Genk, Belgium, is the current leader in KZ2. The Italian Riccardo Negro (DR-TM-Bridgestone), the winner of the WSK Euros Series in KZ2 on the very same Belgian track nearly a month ago, is in close pursuit. The battle for the final victory seems to be a matter between these two big names of the category, even though there are other top drivers who can aim at the big result: the Czech Patrik Hajek (Praga-Parilla-Bridgestone), for example, third in the standings. With him also other drivers such as the Italian Paolo De Conto (Birel-TM-Bridgestone) or Charles Leclerc (ART GP-TM-Bridgestone) from Monaco, who follow with a narrow gap in the current standings.
BOCCOLACCI ON THE RUN IN KF.
In KF the leadership is steadily held by the French Dorian Boccolacci (Energy-TM-Vega), who seems ready to double the success already achieved in the WSK Euro Series. In this Master Series his most dangerous rival seems the Polish Karol Basz (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega), who leads the pack of talented pursuers. The first two on the list are the English Ben Barnicoat (ART GP-TM-Vega) and the Canadian Lance Stroll (Zanardi-Parilla-Vega), the two new names of international karting, who made themeselves conspicuous right during this season together with the Croatian Martin Kodric (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega).
LORANDI IS THE LEADER IN KF JUNIOR.
Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) leads steadily the KF Junior, after his brilliant victory in the last round run on the circuit of Precenicco in Friuli Venezia Giulia. That success was a clear sign of the great talent of the young Italian driver. Lorandi, throughout the whole season, has been battling with another skilful driver such as the English Lando Norris (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega), another rising star of international karting. Beisdes them, there are other excellent drivers worth mentioning, drivers aiming at a prestigious victory on the racetrack of Castelletto: first of all the Russian Nikita Sitnikov (Tony Kart-BMB-Vega), followed by the English Daniel Ticktum (FA-Vortex-Vega), the Russian Nikita Mazepin (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) and the Canadian Parker Thompson (Energy-TM-Vega).
MARTINEZ READY FOR THE SHOWDOWN IN THE 60 MINI.
The Spanish Eliseo Martinez (Hero-LKE-Le Cont) has put in the best performance in this final part of the season in the 60 Mini category. He won the last Final in Precenicco; a victory which rocketed him on top of the standings, pulling down the previous leader, the Indian Kush Maini (Tony Kart-LKE-Le Cont). These two drivers, very likely, are going to challenge each other in a gripping showdown on the racetrack of Castelletto, even though there are other talented drivers who can still aim at the big result: the Swedish Rasmus Lindh (Top Kart-LKE-Le Cont), the Italian Leonardo Marseglia (Top Kart-Parilla-Le Cont), the Malaysian Abdul Gafar Muizz and the Greek Konstantinos (both on Hero-LKE-Le Cont).
