On the occasion of the first round of the championship at the South Garda Karting, the DJT engine led the OKJ category final with Jan Przyrowski, who just a week ago was on the top step of the podium, at the last round of the FIA Karting European Championship at Franciacorta.
OKJ – Our DJT engine opens the weekend, in qualifying, with the second-best time overall of Marcel Kasprzycki (Ward Racing), which places him in fourth place in the chrono practices. During the qualifying heats, the Vortex-powered drivers hit a total of 4 victories (about 1/3 of the heats scheduled) and 6 fastest laps.
The great protagonist of Sunday is Jan Przyrowski (Tony Kart Racing Team), already winner of the last round of the FIA Karting European Championship in Franciacorta. Third in the intermediate ranking at the end of the eliminatory heats, the Polish driver deservedly wins Prefinal A and, thanks to the pole position obtained, is among the pretenders for the final victory. Przyrowski does not disappoint expectations, with a great jump at the start and remaining in the lead throughout the race until the chequered flag. With the results of the weekend, Przyrowski is first in the championship with 88 points and only one round to go.
More than 40% of the final starting grid is made up of chassis equipped with the DJT engine. Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing) and Griffin Peebles (Koski Motorsport) battle for a place in the Top 10, while Kasprzycki shows off with a fine comeback of 11 positions. At the start also Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Tony Kart Racing Team), Salim Hanna (Ward Racing), Elliot Kaczynski (Ward Racing), Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport), Alp Hasan Aksoy (Tony Kart Racing Team), Oliver Kinnmark (Koski Motorsport), Jimmy Helias (Tony Kart Racing Team), Guy Elbag (Ward Racing), Riccardo Cirelli (Ward Racing), David Cosma-Cristofor (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) and Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport).
OK – In the ‘Senior’ class, our DST engine fights relentlessly during the whole weekend in the Top 10 with Keanu Al Azhari (Tony Kart Racing Team). The driver from the United Arab Emirates shows his muscles in the final, but, due to several obstacles found in the battles he is involved in during the first laps, he does not achieve the desired result. Good performance for Liu Ruiqi (Tony Kart Racing Team), as well as for Maksimilian Popov (Koski Motorsport) who recovers 7 positions in the ranking, compared to the start. Also taking part in the final are Dmytro Muravshchyk (Ward Racing) and Vasilis Michailidis (Ward Racing).
