Pilote > Maxime Potty

Alors qu'il n'a pas encore fêté ses 16 ans et qu'il lui faudra encore être patient avant de passer son permis de conduire, Maxime Potty a déjà pris le volant d'une voiture de course. Vainqueur d'un essai en Renault Clio Cup grâce à son succès dans le Trophée Kart Mag, le jeune pilote d'Hamoir pense déjà à l'avenir.

 

Cet essai ne veut en aucun cas dire que Maxime Potty passera à l'automobile l'an prochain. Une année supplémentaire en karting est tout à fait possible. « Mais nous allons aussi nous renseigner pour la Clio Cup en France ou pour le TCR en Belgique », sourit Maxime. « Qui sait ? Si une bonne opportunité se dessine, nous pourrions y réfléchir attentivement. »

Avant cela, Maxime compte terminer en force sa saison de karting avec plusieurs grands rendez-vous au programme : le Championnat du Monde KF sur le circuit italien de La Conca (le 27 septembre), la Finale Internationale IAME au Mans (le 18 octobre) puis la finale de la Belgian ASAF Karting Series, sur la piste de Mariembourg (le 25 octobre). Et Maxime a bien l'intention de faire parler de lui !

Le nombre d'engagés aux derniers Championnats du Monde des catégories KF et KF-Junior est similaire à celui de l'an dernier, mais on note la poursuite de la poussée de l'Europe du Nord dans la discipline. Derrière l'Italie, pays logiquement le plus représentés sur ses terres avec 21 pilotes et la Russie (15 pilotes, dont 12 en Junior, meilleur score de la catégorie), Finlande, Suède et Danemark complètent le top 5 avec un total de 42 pilotes à eux trois.Viennent ensuite l'Espagne (10), la Grande-Bretagne (9), la Belgique (8) et la France (7).

 

66 inscrits en KF avec les protagonistes de la saison européenne Ben Hanley (Croc Promotions/TM), Tom Joyner (Zanardi/TM), Richard Verschoor (Exprit/Vortex) et quelques bonnes surprises comme la présence de Davide Foré (CRG/Parilla), Arnaud Kozlinski (Sodi/TM) et Nikolaj Bollingtoft (FA Kart/Vortex). Le clan français sera complété par Alexandre Gadois (Kosmic/Parilla) et Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer (Tony Kart/Vortex) pour ses débuts en KF.

 

En KF-Junior, 102 pilotes sont attendus parmi les meilleurs spécialistes. Le Champion d'Europe en titre Christian Lundgaard roulera pour la première fois sur un Energy/TM officiel, mais le reste du plateau est proche de ce que l'on a pu voir au long de la saison. Quatre Français sont engagés: Charles Milesi (Tony Kart/Vortex), Milane Petelet (Kosmic/Parilla), Timothy Peisselon (BirelART/Parilla) et Franck Chappard qui délaissera son habituel Praga pour un Kosmic/Parilla du team Ideal Kart.

 

Les listes officielles sont disponibles sur le site de la CIK-FIA.

International > Rotax Max Euro Challenge

About 130 drivers kicked off the first decisive day of the final round of the ROTAX MAX Euro Challenge 2015. The qualifying practice on the 1.350 metres long circuit at Genk in Belgium revealed the balance of power in the grids of juniors, seniors and DD2 - especially in terms of the upcoming decisions in the championship. Although weather made for autumnally and changeable conditions the qualifying stayed dry with a highly balanced outcome and some close decisions ...

In the juniors category UK driver Fin Kenneally (Aim Motorsport) drove the fastest time in the qualifying session. By a gap of only 0.005 seconds he was quicker than the local hero Eric Stahl (Daems Racing) who established himself in second place. Frenchman Axel Charpentier (Strawberry Racing), who still has theoretical chances for the championship crown, followed in third spot ahead of Frenchman Adam Eteki (SG Drivers). Championship leader Jack McCarthy (Strawberry Racing) convinced by a solid fifth place while his hardest title opponent Dean MacDonald (Aim Motorsport) had to be satisfied with 13th place. The other championship aspirants did even worse: Zak Fulk (Coles Racing) reached 20th place and Alex Quinn (CRG SPA) ended up in 25th position of the 51 drivers comprising field.


The senior's qualifying had a sensational outcome in store: Not less than three drivers drove an identical best time of 55.708 seconds! Consequently the second quickest time decided the ranking and so it was Russia's Denis Mavlanov (KR Sport) taking first place ahead of the championship rivals Rinus van Kalmthout (Daems Racing) from the Netherlands and Pierce Lehane (Strawberry Racing) from Australia. Fourth place went to Dutchman Luc Willemse (Team TKP) in front of Sam Marsh (Dan Holland Racing) from the UK.

Championship leader Ferenc Kancsar (BirelART/ KMS) did not leave any doubt in the DD2 qualifying session. By a time of 54.177 the title favourite from Hungary set the pace and was remarkably faster than his opponents, which were led by Germany's Marcel Schirmer (RS Competetion) and Switzerland's Kevin Ludi (Spirit Racing). Championship contender Paolo DeConto (CRG SPA) followed in fourth place, still being in a promising position to stop Kancsar from a walkthrough. The top five were completed by Constantin Schoell (BirelART/ KMS) from Austria.

 

In terms of the Masters classification Japan's Kawase Tomokazu (Uniq Racing Team) stood out of the pack. He took the Masters' pole position for the heats by taking eleventh place in the overall grid. Behind him UK lady Tamsin Germain (DG Racing) followed in second place ahead of Christophe Adams (BirelART/KMS). Meanwhile the clear championship leader Igor Mukhin (CRG SPA) struggled a bit and only ended up in 28th place of the grid.


Tomorrow the final event will enter the second stage: All told 18 qualifying heats promise an action loaded day, which eventually will set the grids for the main races on Sunday. Everybody is invited to join the race action, as live TV coverage will start on Friday and continue throughout the weekend.

Second to last event of the season in the Magdeburger Boerde
The German Kart Championship is going to enter the final phase at the etropolis Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. Until now the three grade series DKM, DJKM and DSKM have presented themselves in a balanced way and can therefore guarantee close racing decisions. More than 100 drivers from over 20 nations are going to start next weekend.


Last year, the 1.018m long race track in the Magdeburger Boerde celebrated its return to the DKM calendar and provided exciting kart racing. This is also guaranteed this year. Until now the races went very evenly and there are no clear favorites yet in the three grade series. The overall lists of rankings are currently led by Martijn van Leeuwen (DKM), Bent Viscaal (DJKM) and Davidé Fore (DSKM).


The etropolis Arena Oschersleben belongs to the high speed tracks of the racing calendar and is popular among the drivers and teams especially due to the proximity to the automobile race track. "Oschersleben is the fastest track on the DKM racing calendar. On the long straight passage you need engine power and wind shadow. Without those it's hard to overtake anyone", says BirelART-factory driver Marijn Kremers.
In the top class of German kart racing two Dutchmen are currently dominating the events at the front. Martijn van Leeuwen (CRG Keijzer Racing Team) and Richard Verschoor (RB Racing) each won three races and were on the winners' podium after all ranked races. After the last event in Ampfing, reigning champion Martijn van Leeuwen took the overall lead and is going to travel to Saxony-Anhalt with an advance of 13 points to his fellow countryman. "We worked really hard before the races in Ampfing and were rewarded for it. We can't rest now though - Richard is still really close", says van Leeuwen. The opponents are very close together as well: Christian Soerensen (Storm Development) from Denmark entered the top three in Ampfing. Only six points behind follows another Dane, Julias Lassen (TK Racing), on fourth place. The top five are completed by best German driver Tom Lautenschlager (TB Motorsport Racing Team).


The youngest drivers of the German Kart Championship are holding off the title decision until the very end. Dutchman Bent Viscaal (KSM Racing Team) has the best chances as the leading driver, but he has to look out for his pursuers. Max Hesse (RS Motorsport) is still really close: Despite numerous places on the podium Hesse is still waiting for his first victory in the German Junior Kart Championship and is going to give it his all again in Oschersleben to achieve the jump to the front. Third driver Emil Dose (Storm Development) already celebrated two season victories. After a lot of bad luck at the season kick-off in Wackersdorf, the Dane improved his performance continuously during his premiere season and is already on third place. "After my victory in Ampfing I know that we are competitive and am really looking forward to an exciting second half of the season", Dose said in his winner's interview. The next German driver, David Brinkmann (KSM Racing Team), is closely behind on fourth place. Dutchman Max Tubbben completes the top five.


The shifterkarts are more exciting than ever. During the first six ranked races there were five different winners. After half-time, the overall list of rankings is currently being led by multiple Kart World- and European Champion Davide Foré (Renda Motorsport). Due to a double victory in Ampfing and cup ranks in Genk the Italian is keeping his younger competition at bay and has great chances of winning the German Championship for the first time. "It's the first year that I'm driving all the DSKM races and now want to make use of this chance", the Italian says looking forward to the next races. His competition wants to prevent this though, most of all Jorrit Pex (Pex Racing Team). The reigning four-time champion only gained 27 championship points in Ampfing and fell back to second place. Alexander Schmitz (KSM Racing Team) is really close as well - the best German driver is currently on third place. Places four and five are shared by Wackersdorf-race winners Menno Paauwe (Paauwer Kart Racing) and Maik Siebecke (SRP Racing Team).


The event in Oschersleben is already going to start on Friday. During the free trainings the drivers can get used to the track. On Saturday morning things are going to get serious during qualifying. The best 34 drivers of the heats are going to start at the overall six final races on Sunday. Everyone who cannot be present in Oschersleben can look forward to more than 16 hours of live images again.
