The torrid climate in the center region of Spain will inflame the final fights of our Racing Team on the occasion of the last and conclusive WSK Euro Series' round.
- The International Circuit of Zuera, with its 1,700 metres of length will be the worthy setting for the last WSR Euro's competition.
- In both categories with the gear box we have good chances to win the title. Torsellini in KZ2 category can succeed even thoough he misses the first round.
- Dreezen in KZ1 category is second position in the ranking and thus is able to fight for the final victory, which would be an encore after the title in 2011.
- In KF2 category Camponeschi aims at the podium of this WSK Euro Championship. For all other drivers of KF2 category the competition at Zuera means a valid test with a view to the Word Cup in September.
- In KF3 category amongst the private teams we have very good representatives, such as Alessio Lorandi (Baby Race), fourth position in the ranking
- Tony Kart Racing Team protagonists' opinions: Rick Dreezen, Mirko Torsellini and Flavio Camponeschi
the international Circuit of Zuera, in Zaragoza, is one of the most long circuits of the international karting scenario, thanks to its 1,700 metres of length and it is featured by very fast large and slow bends located in the middle of the track.
Zuera's Circuit, which is on average 10 metres in length, for its several points of overtaking is worthy for the assignment of such prestigious titles as the WSK Euro Series'. And just at the circuit of Zuera, on next 23rd of September, the CIK World Cup's titles for KF2 and KF3 categories will be assigned. This makes the WSK fight of the next weekend even more exiting.
In both categories with the gear box, KZ1 and KZ2, we have good chances to succeed, particularly in the most powerful class, KZ1, with our driver Rick Dreezen who will give its best, on the same track where he won the WSK Euro's title one year ago.
Dreezen owns 106 scores in the final ranking and boasts a double success in this Championship, both of them gained in Sarno, on the occasion of the opening event of the Euro Series. Unfortunately, due to a wire puncture at the last round of race-1, at La Conca, prevented us to obtain that already expectable success, and for this reason Dreezen missed the leadership in the Championship.
The current leader of the ranking is Jorryd Pex, with a score of 124, a gap which allows any chance of succeeding in the next Zuera's competition. The third position is owned by Armand Convers, at the drive of the Kosmic Kart-Vortex-Bridgestone chassis made in Prevalle, but he has a few chances to succeed.
Not considering any maths, in the fourth position we have the other driver of ours, Marco Ardigò, winner this year of the WSK Master Series. He will be able to compete on the Spanish track free of any ranking binds and for this reason he will aim at a partial success.
Next to Dreezen and Ardigò we will have Alessandro Piccini. He will give his contribution to the team both concerning the WSK title and in the training for the World Cup in KZ1 category, scheduled on the first days of September at the Italian Circuit of Sarno.
In KZ2 category Mirko Torsellini is in the run for the title with 68 scores, our driver is in sixth position for having missed the opening event of the WSK Euro Championship since already competing in a different category.
Torsellini, too, as all others drivers of our Racing Team will have the full support of the staff and of the excellent Racer EVRR chassis powered by the Vortex RVXX engines.
In KF2 category our drivers are particularly motivated and willing of making a good recovery after the unlucky European Championship. As we said before, the Spanish track will be the scenario for the CIK-FIA World Cup on next September for the category, so the competition will be very important and it will allow to measure the competitiveness of both chassis and drivers in the difficult very hot weather conditions.
KF2 category's competition will be a fight for the second position between our “family” team's drivers, Flavio Camponeschi and Antonio Fuoco of the Kosmic Kart Racing Department.
All our Racing Team's staff as well as all our drivers will be deeply concentrated for making the race the right opportunity to develop the racing material, in view of the most important event, the World Cup. Amongst our drivers, Federico Panetta, Ling Kang and Andy Chang; they do not know the circuit so they will have the chance to run in very stressful conditions alike the situation they will meet in two months.
In KF3 category Tony Kart colours are represented by many private teams, able to lineup very high level drivers. Amongst them the most successful until today are the Italian driver Alessio Lorandi (Team Baby Race), currently fourth position in the final ranking with 108 scores, and pretender of the final title. Very good performances are also shown by the US Sargeant Logan (Ward Racing), at his first full European season the American driver is clearly able to more and more take advantage of the Tony Kart-Vortex technical material.

Mirko Torsellini - Tony Kart Racing Team's driver KZ2 category
“It won't be easy to recover the gap but I will do my best to succeed. Zuera has a track allowing to do several overtakings and spectacular competitions. I will have to fight and this is the right track where to do it.”
Flavio Camponeschi - Tony Kart Racing Team's driver KF2 category
“We will not win the WSK title but the competition is anyhow important for many reasons. The first one, is that here we will run the World Cup on September, so we will have to work with the aim of succeeding on the occasion of that important event.
Second thing we have the wish to redeem. On the occasion of the European competition in England we were able to fight for the win and only a little inconvenience prevented us to run the final. So now we soon wish to recover before the next engagement.”
