STANDINGS TAKE SHAPE AT THE WSK SUPER MASTER SERIES.
First race and first points scored by the drivers taking part in the WSK Super Master Series.

PERFECT SCORE FOR ABBASSE, LEADER IN KZ2.
He dominated the heats, the Prefinal A and the Final and this outstanding result sent the French Anthony Abbasse (Sodi-TM-Bridgestone) to the top of the KZ2 standings with 90 points. His team-mate the Dutch Bas Lammers, the winner of the Prefinal B and the runner-up of the Final, occupies the 2nd position with a 23-point gap. CRG Holland is eager to counter-attack Sodi Kart in Castelletto: the dutch team has placed the Pex brothers, Jorrit and Stan, in 3rd and 5th position with 35 and 29 points respectively. The excellent Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart-Vortex) is 4th at 32, between the two Dutchmen.
DE PAUW LEADS THE OK STANDINGS.
Ulysse De Pauw (Kosmic-Parilla-Bridgestone) and Lorenzo Travisanutto (Zanardi-Parilla) are the frontrunners in OK: the Belgian leads with 80 points thanks to his victories in the Prefinal B and in the Final and despite a misadventure occurred during the heats. The Italian is 2nd in the standings with 70 points, thanks to the runner-up position scored in the Final. 3rd place with 40 points for Victor Martins (Kosmic-Parilla), ahead of the German Luca Lippkau (Zanardi Parilla, 34 p.) and the Spanish David Vidales (Tony Kart-Vortex, 30 p.).

Bad luck last weekend for the Russian Pavel Bulantsev (Tony Kart-Vortex, 40 p.) and the Italian Leonardo Marseglia (Zanardi-Parilla 39 p.): they are in 4th and 5th position respectively.
SPINA GRABS THE LEADERSHIP IN 60 MINI.

The Russian Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart-TM, 31 points) and the Italian Gabriele Minì (Parolin-TM, 28 points) are a bit behind but they still stand a good chance to win.
