The Continental Series by WSK Promotion is back.
The International Circuit Napoli is about to stage an important comeback: WSK Euro Series, organized by WSK Promotion, will be back in this season for four rounds. The opener will take place in Sarno this coming weekend, just one week after the end of WSK Super Master Series on the same track. International Karting will stay on the Circuit Napoli from Thursday, March 28th to Sunday, March 31st for the first of the series’ four rounds that will visit Italy and France. Every event will enjoy the usual media coverage of WSK Promotion events, which includes the live streaming of the Finals. Next Sunday the appointment will be with the live streaming of Prefinals and Finals from the website wsk.it and from WSK Promotion’s Facebook.
The Italian rounds will also be valid as Italian ACI Sport Championship.
The novelty of WSK Euro Series 2019 is its validity as Italian OK and OK Junior Acisport Karting Championship: the weekend in Sarno and the rounds to be held in Lonato (on June 23rd) and in Adria (June 30th) will, in fact, award points valid for the Italian titles of the two categories. This decision taken today by Aci Sport’s Sporting Commission entitles all the International drivers entered in these WSK events to compete for the two titles.
A tested format for WSK Euro Series.
WSK Euro Series will follow the tested recipe of the sporting regulations employed in other WSK Series: four rounds for categories OK, OK Junior, 60 Mini and two rounds for KZ2, as the latter will compete in the opener in Sarno and in the third round in Lonato. Points will follow an increasing scoring scheme in each one of the four rounds. Classification points are awarded at the end of qualifying heats on Saturday and further points will be accumulated based on the pecking order of Prefinals and Finals. Every point will count with no results to be discarded. The grand finale will take place in Adria in the most fascinating weekend of the season entirely run overnight.
WSK Euro Series, the Formula 1 campus.
It is interesting to have a look at the history of WSK Euro Series. Its most recent edition dates back to 2013 and it ended with the victory going to some drivers that are now competing in Formula 1: back then, Max Verstappen, now Red Bull Formula 1 driver, claimed the victory on CRG-TM-Bridgestone in KZ1, while the new McLaren driver Lando Norris won KF Junior on FA Kart-Vortex-Vega in the same edition. The current Ferrari Formula One driver Charles Leclerc won WSK Euro Series KF2 in 2012 on Art Grand Prix-Parilla-Vega. The long list of young Motorsport promises blessed by a victorious start in WSK started in 2006 with Valtteri Bottas though. The Finn who is currently leading the Formula One World Championship on Mercedes has a WSK title on his name: the 100 F.A on Gillard-Parilla-Vega.
