Pedro Hiltbrand (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) has been excluded from the FIA ​​Karting KZ World Championship. The Spaniard wins the first heat of the day on Saturday, showing a race pace that was unreachable for anyone. Once the cool-down lap has been completed after the checkered flag, in parc ferme the technical stewards notify a penalty for the front spoiler in the incorrect position. The damage seems repairable, because Hiltbrand would be ranked sixth. But that's not all, because the stewards analyze what happened on the cool-down lap and decide to exclude the Spaniard from the event because he tried to put the nose cone back in place. Despite not being successful, to the extent that Hiltbrand arrives in parc ferme with the nose cone in the wrong position, the stewards are inflexible. The news is sensational especially because the Spaniard seemed to be, after the first heat on Saturday morning, the most fit driver on the track, after the victory obtained by also scoring a best lap (50.078) 129 thousandths of a second faster than the second best time.
