Activity continues on the track for the Round 3 of the WSK Super Master Series on the International Circuit La Conca. 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: OK, OKJ and MINI. The starting grids for Sunday’s pre-finals were then decided.

The rain and the wet track affected all the qualifying heats, with the exception of the last races on Friday and the OKJ heat A-C after Saturday's break.

OK: challenge between Kean Nakamura Berta and Joseph Turney for the summit

Tires: LeCont

  • Experience is one of the key factors in winning on a wet track and, also thanks to the great speed shown on the track, Joseph Turney (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) emerges from the group in the qualifying heats. The Briton conquers a victory, a second position, a third and two fastest laps out of three races, but he is second: in fact, with the same penalty points, is Kean Nakamura Berta (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), yesterday author of the pole position , to maintain the first position in the standings.

  • Some mistakes and some retirements for some of the protagonists of the “Senior” category: among these, Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) retires in the heats on Friday; Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) crashes into the barriers in the second heat while he was leading; in the same race, Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) emulates the British and commits an off-piste while he is first; finally, Alex Powell (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is out in the second heat. In the standings, Coluccio is 12th, Slater is 14th, Powell is 18th and Ferreira is 20th.

  • Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing) occupies the third position, while Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) gains 14 positions and climbs to fourth position.

  • Solid performance for Cristian Bertuca (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), fifth in the ranking, ahead of Artem Severiukhin (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), sixth. James Egozi (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) also shines, from 17th to seventh.

  • Matteo De Palo (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME), Rashid Al Dhaheri (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) and Gustaw Wisniewski (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing) curiously gain 13 positions in the standings: De Palo is eighth, with Al Dhaheri ninth and Wisniewski tenth.

  • For a single penalty point, Luka Sammalisto (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) ends Saturday at the foot of the Top 10, 11th. Vladimir Verholantcev (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - TM Racing) goes from 28th to 13th in the standings. Yuanpu Cui (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) wins one heat and occupies the 15th position.

  • Little luck for David Walther (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex): the Dane, third in qualifying, sinks to 30th position.


OKJ: the wet track rewards Douwe Dedecker

Tires: Vega

  • When the rain plays a fundamental role in the progress of the qualifying heats, the goal of every driver is to make as few mistakes as possible. Douwe Dedecker (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) makes this concept his own and takes home one victory, two podiums and provisional leadership at the end of Saturday.

  • René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) is also a great protagonist of the heats. The Dutchman took a win and signed two fastest laps in the four races, so much so that he was placed second in the standings. Three more positions in the standings for Kirill Dzitiev (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), now fourth, while Oleksandr Bondarev (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) remains stable in fourth position, despite the 14th position in the last heat.

  • Impressive comeback also for Tigran Bunatyan (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - TM Racing): from 38th to 5th. Griffin Peebles (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex) is also good, from 24th to sixth, while Nathan Tye (Sodikart - Sodikart - TM Racing) enters the Top 10 and finishes sixth at the end of the qualifying heats.

  • Fixed in eighth position Kirill Kutskov (Birel Art Racing - Birel Art - TM Racing), ahead of Maxens Verbrugge (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing), ninth: the Frenchman recovers 22 positions in the standings, even if without a 10 second penalty in the last heat due to an incorrect maneuver on the track he could give him a possible victory.

  • Jan Przyrowski (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) wins two out of four races, but retires in the last heat. The Pole positively occupies the tenth position.

  • Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport - LN - Vortex) is out of the Top 10, 11th in the overall standings. Zac Drummond (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) goes from 22nd position to 13th, behind Anatoly Khavalkin (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), 13th: the Parolin Motorsport driver, after two podiums and a fourth position, yes retires in the last heat on Saturday.

  • Jimmy Helias (Tony Kart Racing Team - Tony Kart - Vortex) is 14th in the standings, then to continue we find Andres Cardenas (Energy Corse - Energy Corse - TM Racing), 15th.

  • Two retirements complicate the life of Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport - Tony Kart - Vortex), despite yesterday's pole position and two victories in the qualifying heats: now the Koski Motorsport driver is 19th.

  • Lucas Fluxa (KR Motorsport - KR - IAME) is also hampered by two retirements: the Spaniard now occupies the 24th position. Lewis Wherrel (Forza Racing - Exprit - TM Racing) sinks back, from ninth to 39th, as does Marcus Saeter (Ward Racing - Tony Kart - Vortex), from seventh to 27th.


MINI: complete domination of Dries Van Langendonck

Tires: Vega

  • Absolute perfection by Dries Van Langendonck (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) in all five La Conca qualifying heats. The Belgian driver, after yesterday's pole position, is not satisfied and packs five wins (and even three fastest laps): his leadership on Saturday evening is discounted.

  • After yesterday’s third position in qualifying, Kilian Josseron (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME) makes very few mistakes and, with a win in the last heat as the icing on the cake, is 2nd in the overall standings. Behind him, Roman Kamyab (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) is the author of a good comeback: from 20th to third.

  • Championship leader Jindrich Pesl (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) goes from fifth to fourth, with one victory, three second positions, one fifth and two fastest laps in his pocket in the five qualifying heats. Iacopo Martinese (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) surprises with a comeback of 31 positions and gains the fifth position.

  • Dean Hoogendoorn (Alonso Kart by Kidix - Alonso Kart - IAME) improves his position in the standings, from 11th to sixth. Louis Cochet (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) climbs back by only one position, from sixth to seventh. In the Top 10 we also find Ociepa Juliusz (IPK Official Racing Team - IPK - TM Racing), from 23rd to eighth, Iskender Zulfikari (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME), from 17th to ninth, and Ludovico Busso (IPK Official Racing Team - IPK - TM Racing), tenth.

  • Three wins and a second position for Christian Costya (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) in the qualifying heats, but in the third heat he does not start. The Spaniard is now 12th in the overall standings.

  • Jack Iliffe (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing) occupies 11th position, with Kosei Oguma (Babyrace Driver Academy - Parolin - IAME) 13th, Bruno Gryc (Parolin Motorsport - Parolin - TM Racing), 14th, and Nicklas Schaufler (Emme Racing - EKS - TM Racing) 15th.

  • Filippo Sala (Team Driver Racing Kart - KR - IAME) is 17th, behind Davide Bottaro (AVRacing - Parolin - TM Racing), 16th. Scott Lindblom (Gamoto - EKS - TM Racing) slips 26th, second in qualifying yesterday.
