Positive results for 2021 and promising prospects for 2022

The WSK Final Cup held in Adria from 18th to 21st November marked the end of the season for the WSK Promotion karting events, with another verdict for the LeCont tyres used in the OK category. The manufacturer welcomed the extension of the contract into 2022 as a reward for the work done and the performance of LeCont products throughout the year. The Italian tyres will also be used in many other countries around the world, following the recent results of several tenders.

The partnership between LeCont and WSK Promotion for the OK category, which began in 2020 with the supply of tyres to the WSK Euro Series, has continued in 2021, but this time in all the meetings of the famous promoter: Champions Cup, Super Master Series, Euro Series, Open Cup and Final Cup. In all, 11 events in which LeCont tyres made a significant contribution to the success of the OK category. The congratulations received from many drivers and teams competing in WSK events was strong motivation for the team at the circuits to ensure a perfect service to the competitors.

Another absolute fastest time at Adria

“We are obviously sensitive to these messages, especially as the OK category is equipped with “Prime” type tyres, which are among the most difficult to manufacture and require a very high level of technology,” said Paolo Bombara, Marketing Manager at LeCont. “Ensuring both performance and consistency remains a perilous exercise for a manufacturer and the LeCont factory has once again proved its know-how. Regardless of the number of races scheduled in a meeting or the weather conditions encountered in 2021, our tyres produced high quality races, during which all the teams were able to work calmly, praising their efficiency and consistency over use. On several occasions, the drivers had to use our rain tyres and they supported their sporting achievements perfectly.”

Once again this season, it was an OK driver who set the fastest time in the event, all categories combined. The Bulgarian Nikola Tsolov signed a 47″370-lap during the time trials. Clouds appeared during the weekend and the temperature fell at Adria, but the lap times remained excellent, with, for example, 47″523 set by Rafael Camara in Prefinal B and 47″489 by Arvid Lindblad in the Final. It was the latter who won the Final with great skill against Nikola Tsolov and Alex Powell, who was competing in his very first OK race.

See you in 2022

In addition to the renewal of the partnership for 2022 between WSK Promotion and LeCont for the 12 OK meetings of the season, the Italian manufacturer has recently won new contracts in 2022, for example in Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands for the very first time. Further tender responses are expected in the coming weeks. LeCont’s move to a new factory during the 2022 season will come at the right time to increase production capacity, improve logistics and equip itself with new and more modern machines in order to adapt perfectly to the increasing global demand. As for the FIA Karting Championships. LeCont would still be very happy to participate in the official supply of CIK-FIA homologated tyres, as the Italian manufacturer has done so many times in the past.
