The Palaeventi of the Adria International Raceway hosted, on Saturday 10th January, the traditional Gran Gala of the WSK drivers, the event which closes the WSK season every year. There were 250 guests and, among them, the real protagonists of the evening: the first three classified drivers of last season's WSK Series. They were celebrated by big names of International motorsport. The host of the evening was the WSK President Luca De Donno who, while celebrating the end of last racing year, opened the tenth WSK Promotion season. The company based in Maglie (Lecce) is about to enter its tenth year of activity in kart racing and in car-racing.

For the first time, the WSK Talent Driver and the WSK Driver of the Year awards went to the same driver: the English Enaam Ahmed of the Ricky Flynn Motorsport team. Ahmed won both the WSK Champions Cup and Super Master Series in KFJ, and then became World CIK-FIA Champion in the same category. The awards were presented by the French Dorian Bocclacci, who was nominated WSK Talent Driver in 2013. Boccolacci will make his debut in the FIA European F.3 Championship in the upcoming season.
