FINAL CHALLENGE: THE WSK FINAL CUP STARTS WITH QUALIFYING IN ADRIA.
There’s no break for the drivers taking part in the WSK Final Cup: two weekends in a row at the beginning of November to participate in the two rounds of this International Series hosted by the circuit in Adria (Rovigo, Italy). The first round took place last weekend, at the Adria Karting Raceway, which hosts this weekend the second round. The decisive races are scheduled on Sunday 12th; the two-round event, organised by WSK Promotion, has been particularly successful thanks to the high number of entrants: 191 drivers, in fact, are taking part in qualifying. The leaders of the four categories are ready to defend their positions: the Italian Lorenzo Travisanutto (Zanardi-Parilla-Bridgestone) leads in the OK category, the Swedish Viktor Gustafsson (Tony-Vortex-Vega) in the OKJ, the Italian Alessio Lorandi (Tony-TM-Bridgestone) in KZ2 and the Russian Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart-TM-Vega) in 60 Mini. The incremental scoring system makes this final appointment even more interesting; there are great expectations for a spectacular weekend.
LORANDI SPEEDS UP IN KZ2.
The KZ2 leader, Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart-TM), is still at the top: he was the fastest with 48”166. Behind him, his main rival for the trophy: the Italian Francesco Iacovacci (Luxor-LKE) and the Rumanian Daniel Vasile (DR-Modena), both eager to attack Lorandi’s leadership since the first stage of the event.
MINÌ, A ROOKIE, IS THE SURPRISE IN OKJ.
The OK Junior category is, once again, full of surprises. The best time was set by da Gabriele Minì (Parolin-Parilla) in 49”385, at his debut in the category at this stage of the season. Behind the Italian, the English Harry Thompson (FA Alonso-Vortex), while the current leader of the Series, the Swedish Viktor Gustafsson (Tony Kart-Vortex), is fifth. This time, both the World Champion, the Scottish Dexter Patterson, and the European Champion, the British Jonny Edgar (both on Exprit-TM), are a bit behind in 9th and 16th place. In the meantime, Gustafsson and Thompson won the first two heats of the weekend in the afternoon.
TRAVISANUTTO TRIES TO PULL AWAY IN OK.
He aims at being the undisputed frontrunner of the OK, and he is doing it the right way: Lorenzo Travisanutto (Zanardi-Parilla) set today the best time with 48”080. He is the current leader of the category, and thanks to his result in qualifying, the Italian is always ahead of his main rival, the Danish Nicklas Nielsen (Tony Kart-Vortex) who set the second performance. Among the top drivers, special mention for the 2015 World Champion, the Polish Karol Basz (Kosmic-Vortex), fifth.
BEDRIN LEADS AGAIN IN THE 60 MINI.
Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart-TM) is in good shape, and the best time achieved with 54”345 in the 60 Mini is there to prove it. The current leader of the category finished ahead of the Italian Andrea Antonelli (Tony Kart-Vortex). The Norwegian Martinius Stenshorne (Parolin-TM), second in the standings, placed in 10th position, but he redeemed himself winning the first heat in the afternoon. The second one was won by the Italian Alfio Spina (CRG-TM).
