[Translated with Google Translator] Report, photogallery and videos of the heats in Sarno, on the Circuito Internazionale Napoli, for the recovery of the 2nd round of the WSK Super Master Series

Despite the cloudy sky since the morning and negative weather forecasts, the heats have almost always run dry and with slick tires. It only rained during the last heat in the OK category (raced with slick tires) and the last two heats of the Mini.




Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) is impeccable and wins all three races, always ahead of his teammate, Matteo Viganò (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex).

Alessandro Giardelli (CRG – CRG – TM Racing) continues to surprise: the young Italian driver only in the last heat goes beyond the third position, finishing 7th.

Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) is lost on the road: the Finn, third in the qualifying, pays the withdrawal in the last heat because of an accident, when he was already late compared to the first.


Nicklas Nielsen (KSM Schumacher Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) is the best after the heats and so he recovers some points on the championship leader Hannes Janker (TB Racing Team – KR – Parilla), 9th after the heats because of a 12th place in the last race of the day, race in wet conditions with slick tires. The German driver slipped to the start of the heats beyond the 20th position was then good at limiting the damage.

In second, third and fourth positions there are Dexter Patterson (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing), Roman Stanek (Kosmic Racing Department – Kosmic – Vortex) and Jonny Edgar (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing), the latter running for the victory of the title.

The differences between the two Spaniards, David Vidales (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) and Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG – CRG –  TM Racing), continue. After yesterday’s withdrawal due to a contact in the first heat, even today the two have found a way to fight on the track in the heats 2. Result? 10″ penalty for Vidales and withdrawal for Hiltbrand, who also retired in his third and final rounds and will start last tomorrow in the pre-final, a pity because he was fifth in the overall standings, while Vidales is 29th in the classification after the heats.


Pre-finals and final, tomorrow, promise great battle in the lead positions.

The ranking after the heats sees Gabriel Bortoleto (CRG – CRG – TM Racing) followed by Gabriele Minì (Parolin Racing Kart – Parolin – Parilla) and Paul Aron (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – FA Kart – Vortex). The three are also in the top 5 of the championship standings, respectively in 2nd, 3rd and 5th position.

The championship leader, Kirill Smal (Ward Racing – Tony Kart – Vortex), is 6th, while the winner of the last race in Muro Leccese and 4th in the standings, David Hadrien (Kosmic Kart Racing Department – Kosmic – Vortex ) is only 25th due to a withdrawal in round 2.

Same situation for Federico Cecchi (Revolution Motorsport – Tony Kart – TM Racing) and Alex Dunne (Forza Racing – Exprit – TM Racing), yesterday respectively 4th and 5th in qualifying and today only 19th and 20th after the heats due of a bad result each.

On the other hand, Zak O ‘Sullivan (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – FA Kart – Vortex) confirmed yesterday 6th and today 4th after the heats. He showed up here in Sarno 6th in the championship, but with 75 points to be recovered from Smal.


The first three in the championship are also in the first three places in the ranking after the heats. Leader, today, is Martinius Stenshorne (Parolin Racing Kart – Parolin – TM Racing) which precedes yesterday’s poleman, Tymoteusz Kucharczyk (AV Racing – Parolin – TM Racing).

Andrea Antonelli (Energy Racing – Energy – TM Racing) make a “miracle”. He find a solution to the yesterday’s non-positive qualifying (it was 22nd) and recovers up to the third position after the heats. In the championship Andrea is second.

Even the recovery made by Coskun Irfan  (Baby Race Driver Academy – Parolin – TM Racing) is a great result: yesterday he was 30th and today after the good heats, he is 4th.
