The WSK Master, in this eventful beginning of season, has completed its first half. After the second round in Sarno (Italy) last weekend, there are two more rounds: on 2nd May in Precenicco (Udine, Italy) and on 4th July in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia, Italy).
Dorian Boccolacci controls his competitors in KF. Unreachable when necessary but wise and careful when required: this is the French Dorian Boccolacci (Energy-TM-Vega), who achieved the podium twice in Sarno and managed to keep a steady pace in the standings. He is the leader of the category with 115 points and precedes Karol Basz (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega). However, the gap between the two drivers is now reduced to 8 points, thanks to the Polish driver's victory over the French in the Final on the Circuit Napoli. The Croatian Martin Kodric (FA Kart-Vortex-Vega) is far behind and now he needs a great recovery - despite his good performance in Sarno - to close the gap with the two leaders of the standings. Kodric and the English Ben Barnicoat (ART GP-TM-Vega)- good performance in Sarno for him too - are now battling for third place. This year, KF is the category with the best talents: that's maybe why the experienced French driver Armand Convers (Kosmic-Vortex-Vega) is only fifth.

Both competent and discreet, Ricky Flynn Motorsport is a major team in the international paddocks for two main reasons. Firstly, the level of performance is high, often better than the big factory teams, which is the hallmark of RFM. And there is also the fact that there doesn't seem to be any hierarchy among the many drivers in the British team. Here, everyone has the equipment to aim for victory, both in KF and KFJ.
For a decade, the team run by the former British driver Ricky Flynn, has been collecting victories both in Britain and abroad with the same quality of delivery, and meticulous preparation of the FA Kart chassis. A graduate engineer, Micky Higham, manages the technical aspects while Vortex engines are prepared by ONE engine. This combination continues to prove its formidable effectiveness on track.
In 2013, RFM runs up to 8 drivers in international competition, two KF, Martin Kodric and Ollie Norris, and six KF Junior: Lando Norris, Enaam Ahmed, Daniel Ticktum, Jehan Daruvala, Tom Bale and Max Fewtrell. After only six races, the record is already very eloquent: three wins, nine podiums, eight pole positions, three superpoles. RFM is the overall best performing team in the European paddock in both categories. Looking more closely at the results, we see that the RFM drivers finished in the top 10 17 times, all drivers have won at least one qualifying heat, with the exception of young Thomas Bale, who has had two second places. All of the KFJ drivers have participated in a Superpole in WSK and RFM have had drivers in the top 10 in each final and qualifying. The best example was at Zuera in the WSK Euro Series with five drivers in the top 10 in KFJ.
With this evidence, the RFM drivers are soon likely to get more wins and major titles, confirming the reputation of the team at the highest level.

Also the WSK Master, in this eventful beginning of season, has completed its first half. In the WSK paddock everybody talks about ideal settings and engines as well as of standings. They are all important conversation topics in the race towards the WSK title. After the second round in Sarno (Italy) last weekend, there are two more rounds: on 2nd May in Precenicco (Udine, Italy) and on 4th July in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia, Italy). Verstappen (NL - CRG-TM KZ2), Boccolacci (F - Energy-TM KF), Lorandi (I - Tony Kart-Parilla KF Junior) and Maini (IND - Tony Kart-LKE 60 Mini) lead the current WSK Master Series standings.
Insight into the WSK Master Series standings on TV. Standings after the race will be dealt with in WSK TV Magazine, 30' TV programme aired by RaiSport 2 on Friday 12th April from 11:55pm.
Max Verstappen keeps the KZ2 leadership. The Dutch Max Versteppen (CRG-TM-Bridgestone) could count on the full score achieved in the first round of Muro Leccese and, despite the adversities of his weekend in Sarno, he managed to remain on top of the standings, even though he is now closely pursued by two dangerous rivals such as Paolo De Conto (Birel-TM-Bridgestone) and Riccardo Negro (DR-TM-Bridgestone). The two Italian drivers won the two Finals of the weekend: De Conto won Final 1 on Saturday but was obliged to pull over after few laps in Final 2; Negro was unstoppable in Final 2 but managed to beat into second place Charles Leclerc (ART GP-TM-Bridgestone) only in the last meters of the race. So, De Conto halved the gap with Verstappen, who leads the standings with 101 points, while his competitors scored 70 and 64 points respectively. Leclerc and his teammate, the English Ben Hanley, follow with 57 and 48. The new ART GP couple of drivers were particularly competitive throughout the whole Southern Italian weekend, especially thanks to the driver from Monaco, Leclerc, who got very close to victory. The final sprint could be surprising.
