For the first time in its history, LeCont has been chosen as the official tyre distributor for all the WSK events of the season in the OK category. For the Italian manufacturer, this is further proof of the high level of performance and consistency of its products, as well as its ability to supply major championships.
WSK Promotion is one of the most reputable organisers on the international scene and LeCont will once again have the honour of working with this renowned partner. “A few years ago, LeCont equipped the 60 Mini class,” says Paolo Bombara, marketing manager at LeCont. “Last year, Luca De Donno and his team trusted us to supply the OK drivers for the WSK Euro Series. We are proud that WSK wants to continue this successful collaboration and it shows that we have met the requirements. I think that the performance of our tyres seen during the WSK Euro Series and also at the 2020 FIA Karting Championships in OK and OK-Junior only strengthened the choice of the WSK management for 2021, which was made even before the result of the CIK-FIA call for tenders. In OK, the races are of an incredibly high standard. The world’s best hopefuls and the most prestigious teams are involved, they need a high quality product and service.”
Performance and consistency in Adria
This new year has therefore started with intensity for LeCont, as the “Prime” type tyres from the Italian brand have been used by the OK drivers as soon as the WSK Champions Cup, then a week later at the first of the four events of the WSK Super Master Series, each time in Italy on the Adria Karting Raceway.
“These tyres have largely proved their worth since their homologation on 1st January 2020 and have once again given the competitors complete satisfaction,” continued Paolo Bombara. “These early season races are nevertheless difficult for drivers and teams, because the track does not yet offer the grip that it will for the spring or summer events. Nevertheless, the gaps were extremely small between the many participants, both in Timed Practice and in the races. The lap times remained very fast from Friday morning to Sunday. I would like to congratulate all the drivers and especially the Brazilian Rafael Camara who won both races. Other very demanding circuits such as La Conca, Sarno or Lonato are still to come and we will once again meet the expectations of our customers with professionalism.”
Remaining in an innovative dynamic
As every year, LeCont will continue to pay close attention to the quality of its products, the stability of its production and its pace of delivery. The Covid-19 pandemic has led LeCont to think differently in order to best adapt to the current situation. “Contrary to previous years, we are not taking part in FIA Karting events in 2021 and very naturally we respect the CIK-FIA’s choices following calls for tenders. It is normal that the manufacturers chosen are not always the same each year. The wheel is turning, but this will not prevent us from focusing on the championships in the various geographical areas in which we are involved, and continuing our development for the future. LeCont still has many challenges ahead… As our company’s motto says “the best is yet to come”.
