On the occasion of the WSK Euro Series' third round in La Conca Flavio Camponeschi got on the podium of KF2 category, gaining the third position. In KF2 class as well our brand had an important general result, with 27,8% of drivers at the starting grid running with chassis manufactured in our factory. This result grows to 45% if we also consider the other brands, Kosmic Kart and FA Kart, conceived and totally manufactured inside the factory of Prevalle.
In the categories with the gearbox, some inconveniences did not allow us to give our best so, despite the high competitiveness, both Dreezen and Ardigò could not achieve top level results.Particularly Dreezen who, in race-1, once very close to the success, was involved in the back right tire punture which forced him to withdraw.
In KF3 category and in the 60 Mini, even if not officially attending the event, Tony Kart drivers obtained winning performances. In KF3 category Alessio Lorandi entered the fight for the final title with very good performances, as well as Martin Codric (FA Kart-Vortex), second position in the race and in the general classification.
In the 60 Mini class the Italian race was won by a Tony Kart driver, Leonardo Lorandi. On the podium of the Champioship also another driver running with our chassis, the American Sargeant Logan.
KF2. The rythm our driver had was perfect. In particular Damiano Fioravanti and Flavio Camponeschi won two heats respectively, after entering the battle for the Superpole also attended by Armand Philo Paz who showed off very good performances during the heats gaining a third position twice and confirming this way to own the right driving skill to stay in the first ten positions in the final. Unfortunately, a slight collision in the pre-final put Philo out the scoring area. Good race also for Kasai, Chang and McLeod who entered the top-five thanks to their ability to stay away from accidents occurred at the first bend.
In the final Flavio Camponeschi fought for the podium against the driver from Montecarlo LeClerc and ended with a third position and good scores for the Championship ranking where he is third with 76 points. Fioravanti too, is in the first positions both in the pre-final and in the final.
KZ1. The performances shown by our chassis were top level but unluckily several inconveniences strongly penalized us. Since the qualifying heats Dreezen and Ardigò entered the fight for the win and always ran amongst the best drivers of both heats of Saturday, gaining the first rows at the starting grid. Unfortunately the race was bitter due to some events which prevent our drivers to succeed, even if they were able to.
Marco Ardigò was given a penalty of 10” for its wrong start. But most heavy was Rick Dreezen who in race-1 missed a success already in his hands. He has mostly been in the top position and once he led the race, two rounds far away the finishing line, he was involved in a puncture at the back right tire and had to stop. A real injury which prevented our driver from confirming his position in the championship.
On Sunday the race was as well unlucky. Dreezen stopped right after the green light for an accident and Ardigò was disqualified for having overtaken with in yellow flags. Even though the whole weekend in La Conca was pretty unlucky our driver Rick Dreezen will fight for the title with many chances to succeed, on the occasion of the last round of the season in Zuera, Spain, on next beginning of August.
KZ2. The forced withdraw of Mirko Torsellini in race-2 widen the gap between our driver and the top pf the classification. However he still have the chances to win and Torsellini will be among those drivers fighting against the frontrunner Riccardo Negro. It is important to remind that Torsellini did not attend the first round of the WSK Euro Series.
KF3. Ein the cadet class the quality of our material was proved by the many teams employing our chassis and Vortex engines. Just at the final's starting grid 15 chassis were made in Prevalle. Amongst the pretenders of the new title there are Codric, Lorandi and Sitnikov, three drivers running with our chassis and Vortex engines.
60 MINI. La Conca's competition was the last of the Mini Championship, so we already know who is the first WSK Euro Champion 2012. It's Leonardo Lorandi, at the drive of a Tony Kart chassis, author of a final win giving him the desirable title. Lorandi won over two good opponents, such as Martinez and Sargeant, the last one with a Tony Kart chassis, too.
