Vicotry And Podiums For Vortex At The Wsk Open Cup
Giovanni Mele
13 November 2019

The victory centered by Joseph Turney conquered in the Final of the last appointment of the WSK Open Cup is the perfect crowining of a weekend where the Vortex DST engines prove an excellent continuity of performance.  Out of the sixteen engines present on the grid of 34 starters, seven end in top ten in the final won, as we said, by Turney, awarding also two heats and signs the best lap, before ending third in prefinal.
On the podium, third, also powered by the OTK Kart Group engines, is Kirill Smal (Ward Racing), author of the best lap and the second place in prefinal, and of a first, second and third place in the heats. Fifth in the decisive race Lorenzo Travisanutto (Tony Kart Racing Team), also centering a best lap in the heats. Right behind him, another driver equipped Vortex: Luigi Coluccio (Kosmic Kart Racing Department), who enriches his performance with the best lap of the race at the end of an intense weekend. Seventh is the current OKJ world champion and debutant in OK Thomas Ten Brinke (Ricky Flynn Motorsport), among the best drivers in the qualifying with the official third position. Danny Carenini (Autouropeo Motorsport) ends eighth, while the other debutant in the category Josep Maria Martì (Tony Kart Racing Team) completes the top ten, brilliantly recovering seven positions.
The Vortex engines in top ten would be eight, but due to the penalty given to Pedro Hiltbrand (Tony Kart Racing Team), finished in top ten also in prefinal, they are seven.

Vortex and its DJT engine are successful in the Junior too, where among the drivers equipped with our engines, Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing) stands out, second in the final after being among the best of the whole weekend with the second place in prefinal and another second place in the heats, where he also conquers a victory.
The American Ugo Ugochukwu (Ricky Flynn Motorsport) is fourth, very competitive in every condition and winner of prefinal B and of one heat with best lap too.
In the final top ten, the Vortex engines are represented also by Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart Racing Team) who, besides the seventh place, he also gets a second and a third place in the Heats.
Among the best performers are Calle Bergman (Ward Racing), signing the pole position on wet, and Alexander Gubenko(Kosmic Kart Racing Department) third in the qualifying, fourth in prefinal and firmly in the top ten in all the heats.
Finally, William Siverholm (Ward Racing) makes the most of the DJT Vortex engine’s qualities to recover seven positions and win the Final B.

60 Mini
The Vortex Mini MR3 engine proves to be once again a valid ally for the drivers engaged in the youngest category, first access to the international karting. The best performance is carried out by Kean Nakamura Berta (Tony Kart Racing Team), who, despite the unlucky penalty received in final, gains a victory in the heats, where he is always fighting for the first 10 positions.
Excellent weekend also for his teammate Jimmy Helias, sixth in qualifying, third in prefinal and again third and fourth in the Heats, and for Jules Caranta (Tony kart Racing Team), among the most constant in the heats. Among the fastest in the qualifying practices, instead, is James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team), centering the ninth position.
