The final stage of the CIK-FIA European Championship reserved for KF and KFJ categories saw our Tony Kart chassis reach, once again, important goals. Our Marcus Armstrong won the final of KF after a long run-up to the summit and Christian Lundgaard, Ward Racing team, crowned with success his magnificent competition graduating as European Champion for KFJ class.
KFJ. The run to the title in the cadet class was exciting and uncertain, on a challenging track and changing weather conditions, Roosens, Martono, our Novalak and Lundgaard fought. All drivers competed with chassis entirely manufactured in our factory of Prevalle.
Our brand supremacy has been clear over the entire continental championship and Kristianstad was sealed by an absolute domination. In the qualifyings the pole position went to Kosmic Kart of Roosens and in the nine qualifying heats, held on both dry and wet track conditions, our chassis were still the leaders. The successes in the heats were as follows, Yueyang (FA Kart-Vortex, Ricky Flynn Motorsport - 3 wins), Garcia Lopez (FA Kart - 2 wins), Lundgaard (Tony Kart-Vortex, Ward Racing - 2 wins), Drugovich (Kosmic Kart-Vortex, Kosmic Racing Team - 1 victory) and Martono (Tony Kart-Vortex, Baby Race srl - 1 victory).
In the two pre finals of our products supremacy has not been questioned and the leaders were the drivers of the Ward Racing team, Lundgaard (pre-final 1) and Shvetsov (pre-final 2).
Novalak, Simmenauer and Milesi and all compete the pre-final 2, closing, respectively, ninth, eleventh and sixteenth place.
With the current leader of the standings, Roosens, out of the final, Christian Lundgaard had one way only to run for the title, the victory. The young Dane has so led his Tony Kart-Vortex chassis in first place, from start to finish, winning, deservedly, the European crown of KFJ class.
The new champion preceded on the podium the Brazilian Drugovich and the Spanish Garcia Lopez, all drivers of chassis coming from our factory. Tony Kart’s triumph is completed by the substantial presence of Racer401 chassis at the top of the standings. Our Racing Team’s drivers, Clément Novalak, with 37 points, get the fifth position.
KF. The qualifyings start under the sign of our Racing Team and Nicklas Nielsen, author of the pole with an incomparable 50.678, which precedes the other Tony Kart-Vortex of Vartanyan and the Kosmic Kart-Vortex of Basz.
In the heats the situation is unpredictable due to the rain falling abundant. Nielsen wins twice, while our other driver, Marcus Armstrong, remains behind and closes in nineteenth position.
In the pre-final, with dry track conditions, Nielsen is second and Armstrong is the author of an important comeback that led him to gain the third row on the final starting grid.
Just in the final Armstrong completes his rise, thanks to his perfect chassis and takes the lead of the race on lap seven, over his teammate Nielsen.
After taking the lead, Armstrong has no more rivals and under the chequered flag, the second driver Verschoor (on Exprit-Vortex - RB Racing Team SA) comes with 1"317 from him.
