Activity continues on the track for the Round 2 of the WSK Super Master Series on the South Garda Karting circuit in Lonato. After the first day of Friday, in which the qualifications and the first qualifying heats took place, on Saturday all the remaining heats for the four categories present in the race were held: KZ2, OK, OKJ and MINI. The starting grids for Sunday’s pre-finals were then decided.

KZ2: Stan Pex takes advantage of the mistakes of others

Tires: Vega

  • Also in Round 2, after the qualifying heats the leader is different from the author of the best time in qualifying. Stan Pex (SP Motorsport - KR - TM Racing) practically makes no mistakes in the five races and takes home a haul consisting of a win, three second positions, a third position and a fastest lap. With just 9 penalty points, the Dutchman gains 10 positions in the overall standings and is in the lead.

  • Good recovery also for Matteo Viganò (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), second with 6 positions gained. The Italian driver scores a victory, a second position and two third positions, plus a Top 5 in the last heat of the day.

  • Also this weekend, as in the previous ones, bad luck plays against Emilien Denner (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing). The Frenchman, after yesterday's pole position, is one of the fastest drivers in Lonato - as evidenced by the three victories and two fastest laps collected - but an engine seizure in the first heat on Saturday, when he was in the lead, condemns him to retirement and eighth position in the general classification.

  • Denner's seizure also involves Paavo Tonteri (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing), well attached to the Frenchman's rear. The Finn hits his rival at the first corner, triggering a bad accident, fortunately, without consequences. Tonteri is now 16th in the overall standings.

  • Constancy rewards Pedro Hiltbrand (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), good at getting the third position. David Trefilov (Maranello SRP Factory Team - Maranello - TM Racing) moves up one position and is fourth, followed by Adrien Renaudin (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), fifth.

  • Up to now, the good performance of Matteo Zanchi (Zanchi Motorsport - Birel Art - TM Racing), always in the Top 5 in all the qualifying heats, should be underlined. The Italian closed the day on Saturday with the second position in the last race and the sixth position in the ranking, with Giuseppe Palomba (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) behind him in eighth position.

  • The best climber of the day was Alessio Piccini (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), from 30th to ninth. Jeremy Iglesias (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) loses one position in the standings, even if in the last heat he ends "only" 14th. Jeremy Iglesias (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) closes the Top 10 in tenth place.

  • The victory in the last heat on Saturday allows David Liwinski (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) to touch the Top 10 and place 11th in the overall standings. Behind him we find Samuel Luyet (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), 12th.

  • Senna Van Walstijn (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) lost 11 positions, now 13th. A 13th position and an 18th position, respectively in the first heat and in the third heat on Saturday, ruin the score of the Dutch, the current championship leader.

  • Remarkable recovery also for Alex Irlando (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing), from 37th to 14th. Viktor Gustavsson (CRG Racing Team - CRG - TM Racing) falls 15th, ahead of Tonteri. Iaroslav Shevyrtalov (Team Komarov - Tony Kart - TM Racing) is 17th, Arthur Carbonnel (CPB Sport - Sodikart - TM Racing) is 18th, Danilo Albanese (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is 19th, finally Alex Maragliano (Renda Motorsport - Birel Art - TM Racing) is 20th.

  • Still in difficulty Noah Milell (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), 31st. Davide Foré (Drago Corse Racing Team - Drago Corse - TM Racing) drops 35 °. Even Lorenzo Travisanutto (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) is 36th, also due to a retirement in the last heat.


OK: Luigi Coluccio leads the Tony Kart trio

Tires: LeCont

  • Three official Tony Karts in the first three positions of the general classification at the end of the qualifying heats. Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), after the brilliant victory in the first round of the championship, wins three heats and three and flies to the lead, followed by Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) , second, and by Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), third.

  • Behind the three Tony Kart we find, instead, two Kart Republic: they are those of Kean Nakamura Berta (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), fourth after a climb from 13th position, and Alex Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), fifth.

  • Two more positions in the standings for Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), now sixth. Behind the Brit are two Russians: Maksimilian Popov (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), from 18th to 7th, and Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), from 20th to 8th.

  • Enzo Deligny (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), ninth, and Ean Eyckmans (EGP Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), tenth, closed the Top 10, with James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) 11 °.

  • It did not go too well for Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), author of the pole position in yesterday's qualifying. The Brazilian drops to 12th position, followed in the standings by Maksim Orlov (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), 13th. In the Top 15 also Karol Pasiewicz (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), 14th, and Luka Sammalisto (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), 15th.

  • Due to a retirement in the first heat, Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) climbs 18th, despite a win and a second position. Akshay Bohra (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is even 32nd.

OKJ: Oleksandr Bondarev leaps to the top of the standings

Tires: Vega

  • He had been deprived of a victory in Round 1 for a penalty due to the incorrectly positioned front spoiler, but now Oleksandr Bondarev (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) wants rematch. The Ukrainian is really fast in the qualifying heats and, even scoring a victory on his schedule, takes the lead in the overall standings from 12th position in qualifying.

  • Great Ride also for Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), who passes second from 18th. Andres Cardenas (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) also goes back considerably: the recent WSK Champions Cup champion, from 21st position in qualifying, even grabs the third position. Not even René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) is joking, from 28th to fourth.

  • Emanuele Olivieri (IPK Official Racing Team - IPK - TM Racing) hits the Top 5 and finishes 5th, while Luviwe Sambudla (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is sixth, ahead of Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) , sixth.

  • The award for best climber goes to Jan Przyrowski (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex), thanks to 26 positions gained. The Pole is now eighth, with Douwe Dedecker (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) ninth and Lucas Fluxa (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) tenth.

  • Heat B-C, the last one on Saturday, is worth mentioning. As many as 20 retired (including two non-start drivers), including Miguel Costa (Sauber Academy - KR - IAME), Enea Frey (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), Griffin Peebles (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex) and Tiziano monza (DPK Racing - KR - IAME). The same heat ends with a red flag, after a bad accident under "slow" between Gerasim Skulanov (Leclerc by Lennox Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing) and Matias Orjuela (Shamick Europe - Parolin - TM Racing).

  • This is how the general classification speaks: Frey 11th, Maxens Verbrugge (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing) 12th, Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex) 13th, Kirill Dzitiev (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex) 14 ° and Andy Consani (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing)

  • Zhenrui Chi (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), 31st, Thomas Strauven (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex), 32nd and Nathan Tye (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing), 41st lost positions.


MINI: another great comeback by Jindrich Pesl

Tires: Vega

  • As in the first round two weeks ago, Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) gives his best during the qualifying heats. The Czech driver slips a series of five wins out of five heats, climbs up 12 positions and earns the first position in the general classification.

  • Also skilled Christian Costya (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), with the Spaniard able to hold on to second position after gaining 8 positions in the qualifying heats. Dean Hoogendoorn (Alonso Kart by Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME) also did well, from eighth to third.

  • The winner of the first round Dries Van Langendonck (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) climbs by 5 positions and finishes fourth, while Ludovico Mazzola (Drago Corse Racing Team - EKS - TM Racing) is behind him, in fifth position.

Bogdan Cosma-Cristofor (Gulstar Racing - KR - IAME) also lost positions, eighth.

  • Oliver Palocko (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) climbs 11th, while Billy Van Staveren (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) gains 13 positions and is 12th.
