Target centered for the Tony Kart Racing Teamin the previous weekend at the South Garda Karting in Lonato, where Marco Ardigò crosses the finishing line on Sunday, becoming the WSK Euro Series Championfor the KZ2 category. The fantastic result comes at the end of a weekend in which our drivers bring the Tony Kart 401 R powered by Vortex always in the very first positions.
Tony Kart, actually, stands out brilliantly in all the sessions, both with Simo Puhakka, rating leader, best in qualifying and winner of three Heats, and with Marco Ardigò, who wins two heats. After difficult qualifying, not in line with his potential, Matteo Viganò gains the victory in the prefinals, taking the lead in the heats and centering a best lap too.
In Final, Simo Puhakka is forced to withdraw in the early stages of the race due to a contact, but Ardigò, as mentioned, scores a great performance and wins the race. Also Viganò does very well, finishing fourth after giving birth to very close duels. Alessio Piccini is the author of excellent performances in the decisive race recovering 8 positions.
A bit of bad luck for Noah Milell instead, always in topten of KZ2, but unfortunately not in Final due to the brawl he is involved in at the start of prefinal. Also David Vidales can hardly find the right constancy to express himself at top levels, despite a best lap in the heats.
In the OK category, the OTK material brilliantly stands out especially thanks to Dino Beganovic from the Ward Racing team, absolute protagonist with three victories gained in prefinal and in the heats and finishing fourth in the decisive race. Unfortunately, the good performances are not fully exploited by our official drivers in the final: Matheus Morgatto, actually, after a few bends is forced to close a fantastic weekend due to a contact. Joseph Turney, instead, until then always in the first four of the Heats and third in pre-final, tries to recover after a bad lap, but slips out of the top ten. Also Sebastian Montoyacannot express his potential at his bestafter the ninth position conquered in pre-final.
In OKJ, our Nikita Bedrin takes full advantage of the third round of the WSK Euro Series. The Russian reaches the third place in the overall rating thanks to his final sixth place, the second in pre-final and the three second places achieved in the heats. A little bit unluckier Josep Maria Martì, eliminated by a contact in the early stages of the final, making all his efforts and his great sixth place in pre-final fruitless, and Alex Dunne, in top ten in the Heats and fourth in pre-final, out of the post-race rating.
In 60 Mini, finally, the Tony Kart Mini Rookie EV reached the second step of the podium thaks to the great performance of Manuel Scognamiglio from the GamotoTeam. Concerning the official Tony Kart drivers, Jules Caranta and Coskun Irfan do well with a second place for both besides a fifth place in prefinal gained by the French driver. Very good also Andreas Cardenas and Jimmy Helias, who reaches three times the topten.
The Tony Kart Racing Team is now ready to take part in the final round of the WSK Euro Series. The fourth stage, awarding the OK, OKJ and 60 Mini titles, will be a night race and will take place on the Adria Karting Raceway, with the finals scheduled in the evening of Saturday, 29th of June.
