Maranello on the podium with Groman in the End Race of the WSK at Lonato in Super KF

ZDENEK GROMAN ON THE THIRD STEP OF THE PODIUM IN A RACE RUN AS A PROTAGONIST. GOOD  WAS ALSO THE TRIAL OF HIS SISTER TEREZA GROMANOVA WHO RAN VERY WELL IN THE HEATS. VAINIO WAS FORCED TO WITHDRAW AFTER A NICE PERFORMANCE IN THE SUPERPOLE.



After having won a deserved podium which projected the Czech Zdenek Groman  on the top of karting, Maranello Kart ended in the best possible way the 2009 Championship  of the “WSK International Series” proving to be an absolute protagonist in this final phase of the season. Maranello had already skimmed victory in the World Championship of Macao with Aaro Vainio and Ben Hanley, now it was Groman to come to limelight for Maranello Kart colours, being very fast at any circumstances in the final event of Lonato in Super KF.

Fighting as never before, in the Final Groman  was able to get ahead at half race then he fought for the first positions until the last of the 38 laps easily winning at the end the third step of the podium. This was a good race for him, also counting on the support of an excellent set-up of Maranello chassis.

In great evidence was also Tereza Gromanova, Zdenek’s sister, who was quite unlucky in the final but extremely profitable in the qualification heats at the end of which she resulted on a good 6th position, reaching a fourth place too.

Among the drivers of Maranello Kart, the one who couldn’t pick up what he would deserve, was the Finnish vice-world champion Aaro Vainio. He was third at the Superpole but then lingered by technical problems in the heats and therefore forced to withdraw for an accident at the start.  From now on Vainio’s thoughts are concentrated on car-racing where he will be debuting next year  in F1 to start a definitely brilliant career if we consider his qualities.

In KF2  the British George Blundell and the Danish Thomas Krebs were able to reach the Final placing then respectively 17th and 20th , with a good recovery for both from the back positions. The Finnish Joni Wiman,  Sasha Mutter and the Czech Michal Fousek were out of the race due to several accidents.

In KF3 the best performance for Maranello Kart’s drivers was of the Portuguese Francisco Abreu of Gandolfi Team, who 23rd in the Final.  The Finnish Mikko Pakari was really unlucky in this category, being forced to the back lines in two of the four heats which of course jeopardized qualification.  Out of the Final phase were the Russian Makim Ryzhkov and Ivan Nikitchenko and also the other Finnish Niclas Nylund.
 

THE INTERVIEW. Armando Filini, manager of Maranello Kart: “We were very competitive in Super KF. The list for the championship was unfortunately compromised due to better results we missed at the beginning of the season. Groman raced very well here at Lonato. I am so sorry for Vainio who had a technical problem on Saturday in a heat, otherwise we would have had two drivers for sure ahead.  Tereza  was also okay, she can use at best her special tyres and in the heats she performanced  very well. She was forced to withdraw in the final because of  a motor-breaking.

I am less satisfied with the scanty results we had in KF2 and KF3.  The boys were absolutely not able to find the right set-up for this race. Let’s anyway hope the best for the future: our purpose is to be more and more competitive.  We will have our new motor which we are already testing with excellent results and we also hope to find along our way other drivers like Vainio who gave us  this year too nice satisfactions with his victory in the Super KF European Championship and his second place at the World Championship of Macao”.
