Wackersdorf World Championship: Abbasse (KZ) and Longhi (KZ2) are pole position

Wackersdorf World Championship: Abbasse (KZ) and Longhi (KZ2) are pole position

In qualifying Anthony Abbasse (Sodikart / TM Racing) was fastest in KZ ahead of Marijn Kremers (BirelART / TM Racing) and Fabian Federer (CRG TM Racing). In  the International KZ Super Cup, Ricardo Longhi (BirelART / TM Racing) was the fastest of the 113 drivers racing.

A brilliant return for the French Sodikart driver: Anthony Abbasse took pole position after coming back from injury after his crash in Spain during the European Championships. Just behind him was Marijn Kremers who continued his great form followed by just a few thousandths of a second by Fabian Federer.

An excellent fourth overall and the first non-TM driver was Jordon Lennox-Lamb (Tony Kart / Vortex). The English driver returned to racing with the Tony Kart Racing team and was immediately on the pace.

Among the favorites, not such a good result from both Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Paolo De Conto (CRG / TM Racing). The former still suffering from broken ribs, an injury which has tormented him throughout the season. The reigning World Champion meanwhile seemed to miss the right moment to enter the track and get maximum heat into his tyres and did not record an ideal qualifying lap.

From fifth through to tenth we find the contenders from the 2017 season; Simo Puhakka (Kosmic / Vortex), Jeremy Iglesias (Formula K / TM), Flavio Camponeschi (CRG / TM Racing), Patrick Hajek (Kosmic / Vortex), Bas Lammers (Sodi / TM Racing), Davide Fore (Righetti Ridolfi / TM Racing).

Back in 42nd position was Lorenzo Camplese (Parolin / IAME), who only completed one lap before stopping with a technical issue.

A great performance also by Ronnie Quintarelli (BirelArt / TM Racing) who returned to top level karting after a 15 year career in Japan in Super GT and SuperFormula. The Italian was 27th in qualifying, just 0.422 seconds away from pole position.
