Double Vortex podium in the WSK “Master” in Lonato
03 May 2021

In the final act of the WSK Super Master Series 2021, the OTK Kart Group engines gain two podiums in the OK and OKJ classes, other than other several fast laps to add to its final outcome.

KZ2 - The Vortex RTZ and RSZ engines for the gearbox class see in Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart Racing Team) the best performer of the final. The Finnish driver climbs up not less than 11 positions from the starting grid and finishes in the top 10. Excellent performance also for Lorenzo Camplese (Tony Kart Racing Team), at his first race of the season with the Tony Kart Racing Team. Jean Luyet (D.E.L. Motorsport) also enters the final race of the weekend.

OK – 11 are the Vortex DST engines at the starting grid of the final of the master class of single-speed karts: that is about one third of the participants. Luigi Coluccio (Kosmic Racing Department) confirms the performances of two weeks ago and gains the 3rd place, other than winning an eliminatory heat during the weekend. There are two other Vortex engines in the narrow circle of the best five: they are Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing) and Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team), respectively 4th and 5th on the finishing line. Good performance also for Rintaro Sato (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) who obtains a 7th place, just ahead of Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team), 8th. Scrolling the ranking we also find in order: Norton Andreasson (Ward Racing), Danny Carenini (Autoeuropeo Motorsport), Alfio Spina (Tony Kart Racing Team), Edoardo Villa (Exprit Racing Team) and Sebastian Gravlund (Kosmic Racing Department). Bruno Del Pino (Tony Kart Racing Team) ends his race prematurely.

OKJ - The DJT engines at the starting grid of the final of the "junior" are 9, more than 25% of the competitors. Fast and competitive also in the first round of the WSK Euro Series is Harley Keeble (Tony Kart Racing Team) gaining the 2nd place in the final, not far from the winner of the race. The British driver also signs a fast lap on the occasion of the pre-final where he finishes 3rd. The other two best laps signed of Sunday, those of the second pre-final and the final, see the name of James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team), able to climb position after position up to 5th place, ahead of an intrepid Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) in 6th. By a few tenths of a second, Alexander Gubenko (Tony Kart Racing Team) misses the top 10 although he has the right speed during the eliminatory heats, also proved by a fast lap in the second heat. Scrolling down the list of the ranking we also find, in order, Jonathan Weywadt (RS Competition), Konstantin Krapin (Ward Racing) and Maxim Rehm (Ricky Flynn Motorsport). Maksimilian Popov (Ward Racing) and Dion Gowda (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) retired.

MINI - Jimmy Helias (Tony Kart Racing Team) fights in the Sunday's final and recovers not less than 11 positions from the bottom of the grid. The French driver is among the best twenty drivers of the event and in the eliminatory heats he also climbs on the podium on one occasion.
