A final in crescendo for IPKarting at the WSK Master Series
The last round of the Championship at the Napoli International Circuit in Sarno, sees as protagonists the IPKarting chassis, both in the KZ2, where the only thing missing is a brilliant finals, and in the 60 Mini.
For the last round of the WSK Super Master Series, raced at Sarno, Italy, from the 21st to the 24th of March, the KZ2 class too is back on the racing track. Five IPKarting chassis will line up at the starting line: 3 for Praga Kart and 2 for Formula K.
Giacomo Pollini (NGM Motorsport) and Francesco Celenta (Praga Racing Team) in particular stand out already from the qualifications arriving respectively 4th and 6th. The heats continue equally well with Pollini who achieves all of the podium’s steps (1st, 3rd and 2nd, is the sequence) and Celenta who wins a test and gets a 4th and 5th place. The start of the Prefinal B has a front row which is entirely signed by IPKarting! Unfortunately, Pollini must abandon the race during the eight lap, while Celenta gives his all until the last turn and finishes second. In the finals, in addition to Celenta, there are also Jeremy Iglesias (Formula K) and Tom Leuillet (Praga Racing Team) the best will be once again be Celenta, who finishes 9th.
In the Championship rankings, Celenta is seventh, thanks to consistent results which have him obtaining points in each of the races available to him amongst qualifications, prefinals and finals.
In the 60 Mini we find 11 IPKartingchassis, branded RS Karts, along with Praga and Formula K.
Also in this category, there is a name that particularly stands out, Gerasim Skulanov (Praga Racing Team). The Russian driver is 6th in qualifying, and two times second in the heat. In the prefinals, he gains 5 positions and closes in 6th, while in the finals he ends up 8th, that was after gaining an extra 3 positions. Thanks to these results, Skulanov achieves the top 20 in the Championship standings.
An excellent performance for Anatoly Khavalkin (Formula K Junior Team) always in the top ten in all the raced heats and 9th in his prefinal. The finals which gets him to only the 24th place is not a job well done.
Guillaume Bouzar (Schumacher Junior Team), instead, takes the opposite route, as he starts at a disadvantage and is forced to make big comebacks from the events. He recovers, respectively 14 and 12 positions in the two heats, moving up in the rankings and earning a prefinal appearance. Here, after another nine overtaking’s, he closes at 14th. Luck is not on his side either during the finals, with a result which does not reflect the excellent performance displayed by the outstanding vehicle driven by him.
The next competitive appointment, for IPKarting, will be again at the Napoli International Circuit, where the first round of the WSK Euro Series will take place from the 28th to the 31st of March, 2019.
