THE RAIN MAKES THE RESULTS EVEN MORE UNPREDICATBLE IN WSK.
Today, too, the rain gave its contribution to make the results of the races even more unexpected. The standings of the WSK Champions Cup of kart racing, at its second and decisive appointment, are as uncertain as ever. The event is hosted by the International Circuit La Conca, which was hit by a sudden shower right at the beginning of the racing day. The wet asphalt conditioned all today’s races, obliging the teams to change the set-up of the karts. So, the current standings of the KF, KF Junior and 60 Mini became more uncertain than expected: if today’s performances were confirmed in tomorrow’s Prefinals and Finals, we would have rather unexpected results in the final standings.
KAROL BASZ TRIES TO RECOVER IN KF.
Karol Basz (Kosmic-Vortex-Vega) is going to have a tough time if he wants to close the gap. The Polish driver’s performance in today’s heats allowed him to clinch the pole-position in tomorrow’s Prefinal. Basz is back in the game and he can now be regarded as one of the favourites for the Final, scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. He will have to deal with his strongest and most motivated rival: the Danish Nicklas Nielsen (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega). Victory in the three heats was a matter between these two champions: Nielsen won the first one, Basz the other two. They will both start from the front row in tomorrow’s Prefinal. They have to close the gap with the current leader, the Dutch Richard Verschoor (Exprit-Vortex-Vega). The latter did not perform brilliantly today: he only managed to clinch the fifth position as his best result. Verschoor will fill the slot in third row, next to the American Juan Correa (Energy-TM-Vega). Second row for the Italian Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) and the English Max Fewtrell (FA Alonso-Vortex-Vega), namely two of the most interesting drivers arrived in KF from KF Junior. Tomorrow morning the first, important points will be awarded in the Prefinal, just before the last act of the KF event scheduled for the afternoon.
LUNDGAARD PULLS AWAY IN KFJ.
There are three drivers battling for the pole positions in the two KFJ Prefinals in schedule tomorrow. Two of them are the American Logan Sargeant (FA Alonso-Vortex-Vega) and the Russian Nikita Volegov (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega): they won two heats each. The Swedish Christian Lundgaard (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega), is the third pretender to the pole position. Besides winning the two heats where he raced against Sargeant and Volegov, he won a third heat and he is now very close to the pole.The Scandinavian driver is the current leader of the category and he is aware of the fact that he will have to battle hard to keep the leadership against such motivated opponents. The other winner in today’s heats was the Danish Noah Watt (FA Alonso-Vortex-Vega); tomorrow morning , after the two remaining qualifying heats, we will know the name of the pole-sitter.
DENNIS HAUGER ATTACKS IN 60 MINI.
The Norwegian Dennis Hauger (CRG-LKE-Vega) leads the pack of pursuers in 60 Mini. In today’s three heats, the Scandinavian driver achieved a great recovery as well as the Italian Leonardo Marseglia (CRG-LKE-Vega) and Giuseppe Fusco (Lenzo-LKE-Vega): the three drivers won a heat each, while the current leader of the standing, the Italian Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart-LKE-Vega), had lots of troubles and he will start from the 9th row in tomorrow’s Prefinal. The two team-mates, Hauger and Marseglia, will start from the front row, ready to keep at bay Fusco and another Italian driver, Marzio Moretti (Tony Kart-LKE-Vega). Third row for the Italian Mattia Michelotto (Top Kart-Parilla-Vega) and the underdog Francesco Crescente (Energy-LKE-Vega), both eager to join the battle for the final victory.
