Initial duels at WSK Euro Series in Lonato.

Initial duels at WSK Euro Series in Lonato.




The atmosphere at WSK Euro Series did not wait the first summer day to warm up. Temperatures among drivers on track have always been very high and things have been spiced up by some unexpected performances.

This is what happened today at South Garda Karting in Lonato (I), where the third last round of the European Series is underway: several strong underdogs have slid in the fight for the top since qualifying practice this morning. This is a good promise ahead of the final challenge that will take place next weekend in an exciting overnight round in Adria.

300 drivers on track until Sunday, June 23rd. Live streaming by WSK Promotion.

A remarkable group of 300 drivers completed scrutineering today to enter the final stages of the event that will run tomorrow 41 qualifying heats (on top, the start of one of KZ2 heats of today) to define the pecking order of 8 Prefinals that will take place on Sunday, June 23rd. This final stage will open the live streaming feed by WSK Promotion from local 11:00.

 This is going to be yet another appointment not to miss. The program of the live coverage available through the website and WSK Promotion’s Facebook page will continue until the end of the event with the podium ceremonies.


Big surprises in qualifying.

The most followed category this weekend is going to be KZ2 that will run its closing appointment this weekend. The Finn Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart-Vortex-Bridgestone, above) started off on a high confirming his lead in the provisional classification posting the quickest time in 46”309s.

His closest rivals, the French Anthony Abbasse (Sodi Kart-TM) and the Italian Riccardo Longhi (BirelArt-TM) were only ninth and eighth respectively. The Dutch Marijn Kremers (BirelArt-TM) and the Italian Giuseppe Palomba (Croc-TM) ended close to Puhakka instead.


The battle is still open in OK, where the Scott Dexter Patterson (KR-Iame-Bridgestone, above), fifth in the standings, managed to post the pole position time in 46”541s, while classification leader Lorenzo Travisanutto (KR-Iame), was third behind his nearest rival, Dino Beganovic (Tony Kart-Vortex).

The quickest of OK Junior was the American Ugo Ugochuckwu (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega, above) in 48”220s, while classification leader from Holland Robert De Haan (Energy-TM) was only 31st. The chasers of De Haan, namely the Russian Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart-Vortex) and the Italian Andrea Antonelli (KR-Iame), displayed a good shape today taking respectively P2 and P3. The values in 60 Mini are all subject to change.

Here the Brit William Macintyre (Parolin-TM-Vega) did not score any results. The Bulgarian Nikola Tsolov (below)went quickest instead in 53”452s, leading the Belgian Douwe Dedecker (both on Parolin-TM) and the Pole Jan Przyrowski (Luxor-LKE).


Initial heats, a lot of winners.

In the KZ2 heats Abbasse came back to the fore winning one heat as did Palomba. Patterson and Travisanutto had a distant challenge in OK as they won one heat each. Four different winners widened the list of contenders in OKJ: James Wharton (FA Kart-Vortex), William Silverholm, Artem Severiukhin (both onTony-Vortex) and Jamie Day (Exprit-Vortex).

In 60 Mini, the two wins of Douwe Dedecker were followed by those of Joel Bergstrom, Nikola Tsolov (all on Parolin-TM), Dmitry Matveev (Energy-TM) and Flavio Olivieri (KR-TM), that won one heat each.
