WET RACE FOR THE DRIVERS OF THE WSK SUPER MASTER SERIES.
The circuit of Adria was a real challenge for the 243 drivers taking part in the WSK Super Master Series. The wet asphalt in the morning, in fact, got wetter and wetter during the day because of the continuous rain, which made the work of drivers and mechanics really hard. So, today’s qualifying heats were the ideal testing ground for the skills on wet track of the participants: the result was a series of outstandingly spectacular races, where the most experienced drivers were able to show what they are capable of, while the youngest ones seized the occasion to gain some experience. Then, in the early evening, the intensity of the rain increased and the race was stopped. The heats which were not run today were scheduled for tomorrow, before the decisive stage of the event which will continue regularly with the Pre-finals and the Finals of the four categories - KZ2, OK, OK Junior and 60 Mini-. All the final races will receive the media coverage provided by WSK and will be available in streaming on the official website wsk.it.
TRAVISANUTTO GRABS THE POLE IN OK.
The only category which completed the series of heats was the OK. The best performance was achieved by the Italian Lorenzo Travisanutto (Zanardi-Parilla-Bridgestone), who won three times and secured the pole-position of the Pre-final A. Next to him the French Victor Martins (Kosmic-Parilla), third in the overall ranking of the qualifying heats. The English Clement Novalak (Tony Kart-Vortex), always in second position behind Travisanutto, is the pole-sitter of the Pre-final B; second slot of the front row for the Russian Ivan Shvetsov (Tony Kart-Vortex).

The French Anthony Abbasse (Sodi-TM-Bridgestone) won two of the four heats which have taken place so far in KZ2.
