Today's Heats decreed the leaders of the Qualifying Heats' standings of the third round of the WSK Super Master Series. The event taking place in Adria will continue tomorrow with the 4th round qualifying.

An action-packed day that just ended at the Adria Karting Raceway where all the remaining Heats that defined the starting grid of the Pre Finals of the third round of the WSK Super Master Series were run. Excluding some misfortunes for some of the competitors, the values that emerged yesterday remained unchanged.

Rather, it will be interesting to see if and how they will change over the next few days, given that tomorrow, contrary to how WSK has accustomed us, instead of the Pre-Finals of the third round, the drivers will take to the track for the qualifications of the 4th round and the relative round of batteries.

MINI: Dmitry Matveev is the most consistent and takes the lead

Tires: Vega

  • Dmitry Matveev (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), who qualified 4th yesterday, is today atop of the ranking of the Qualifying Heats thanks to three wins and a fourth place. His most direct opponents Jan Przyrowsky (AV Racing - Parolin - TM Racing) and Kean Nakamura Berta (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME) suffered a withdrawal each, which made both of them lose positions.

  • That means that Peebles Griffin (AV Racing - Parolin TM Racing) with only one victory, is 2nd behind Matveev and ahead of Rene Lammers (Baby Race Driver Academy - Parolin - TM Racing)
