ON THE 7 LAGHI RACETRACK, THE WSK MASTER SERIES ENTERS TOP GEARS.
This is the decisive weekend of the whole season and the event of the 7 Laghi racetrack of Castelletto di Branduzzo has already taken centre stage. The organization of the WSK Master Series, expecting to celebrate its 2013 winners next 14th July, is already in full swing. The races on the Italian facility are going to be as gripping as ever. Today was mostly dedicated to free practice, but in the afternoon we finally had the first time trials which outlined the starting grids of tomorrow's heats.
BOCCOLACCI LAYS HIS CARDS ON THE TABLE AND CLINCHES THE KF SUPERPOLE.
Dorian Boccolacci has shown what he is capable of since the very beginning. He stopped the clock at 46”865 and achieved the Superpole in KF, setting a better time than the one he set in the first session. Behind him the English from London Callum Ilott (Zanardi-TM-Vega), just 13 milliseconds slower and just a step away from the pole. Third time for his fellow countryman Ben Barnicoat (Art GP-TM-Vega), currently third in the standings.
NORRIS GETS THE KFJ SUPERPOLE.
The KF Junior is still uncertain thanks to the duel between the English Lando Norris (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega) and the Italian Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-Parilla.Vega), who have been battling since the beginning of e season. Today it was Norris' turn to achieve the Superpole in 47”923. Lorandi, leader in the standigs, is behind for just 6 milliseconds. It is useless to point out how such a challenge is going to be absolutely gripping in tomorrow's qualifying races, also because there are many other protagonists, such as the Finnish Niko Kari (FA-Vortex-Vega) and the Russian Nikita Sitnikov (Tony Kart-Vega), who placed respectively third and fourth in today's qualifying.
HANLEY LEADS IN KZ2.
In the battle for the final victory between the Dutch Max Verstappen (CRG-TM-Bridgestone) and the Italian Riccardo Negro (DR-TM-Bridgestone) - respectively first and second in the standings - the English Ben Hanley (Art GP-TM-Bridgestone) doesn't seem to be completely cut out of the competition: he stopped the clock at 46”589 and achieved the pole in KZ2. Verstappen set the second time, just 127 milliseconds behind, while Negro was fifth. Interesting second row for Charles Leclerc (Art GP-TM-Bridgestone) from Monaco and for the Italian Alessandro Manetti (Praga-Parilla-Bridgestone), respectively third and fourth.
GRIGORYEV IS THE SURPRISE IN THE 60 MINI.
The apprenticeship of the Russian Ivan Grigoryev (Hero-LKE-Le Cont) proceeds well and, today, he was the fastest in the 60 Mini, aheahd of the two Italian drivers Leonardo Marseglia (Top Kart-Parilla-Le Cont) and Giuseppe Fusco (Lenzo-LKE-Le Cont). On the other hand, the two main protagonists of the 60 Mini season will need to close the gap in tomorrow's races: the Spanish Elieso Martinez (Hero-LKE-Le Cont) is only ninth, while his rival, the Indian Kush Maini (Tony Kart-LKE-Le Cont) is 18th.
