Positive weekend for Lennox Racing at the first round of the OKJ/OK European Championship
20 April 2022

In Portimao there were the best possibile weather conditions and our drivers showed significant improvements compared to previous races of this season. Our team has been represented by Gerasim Skulanov and Aaron Garcia in OK Junior category and Rafael Modonese, Nathan Schaap, Maksymilian Angelard and Andreja Vibriantyte in OK category.

Qualifying practices proved very challenging and finding the right pace has been a bit harder than expected: Garcia and Skulanov placed respectively P25 and P29 in OKJ. Modonese showed good things in OK concluding 31st, while Schaap (P40), Angelard (P62) and Vibriantyte (P63) needed a bit more to take confidence with such a hard track like Kartodromo Algarve.

In the Heats our drivers improved significantly. Consistent speed from both Skulanov and Garcia in OKJ, who fought all the day for the top 10 and reached the final in 24th and 32nd spot of OKJ. Solid day also for Modonese in OK, who ended his Super Heat in 17th place, but due to a 5-second penalty for the incorrect position of the front fairing caused by a contact he has been downgraded on P26. However, Rafael was able to qualify for the final race in 34th position. Steps forward also for Schaap, Angelard and Vibriantyte, but unfortunately they didn’t reach the last phase of the competition.

In the OKJ Final Skulanov showed the best of himself: Gerasim moved up 10 spots finishing in P14, not so far from top 10. Garcia has been just unlucky, just as Modonese in OK category: for both it’s been a real shame, but they’ll have for sure other chances to show off their qualities on track.

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, Team Manager: “Sometimes results are not everything, especially in karting. I’m really pleased about what our drivers and team were able to do in Portimao. We have been a bit unlucky in some key moments of the weekend, but I’m sure that our efforts will soon pay off. There have been progresses in all possible aspects, I’m satisfied and sure that there’s a big room for improvements.”
