Pilot > Devlin DeFrancesco

A 13 year old young driver from Canada, Devlin DeFrancesco already has a track record and an enviable reputation in America. Canadian Vice-Champion, 3rd in the United States Championship, he also participated in the WSK Master Series in the 60 Mini category in 2012 with a strong fourth place in the championship.

This season, he will again divide his time between America and Europe while racing in juniors. The first rounds of the 2013 Florida Winter Tour have already been run with excellent results: 5th and 6th places in TaG Junior, 3rd and 5th place in Rotax Junior, held the following week on the same circuit at Palm Beach.

 

"But KFJ is my favourite!" explained young Devlin enthusiastically. "There's more power, more grip, the KFJ is more fun! And I have also received advice from Jordon Lennox-Lamb, which helps me a lot!"

 

At the wheel of his CRG, his favorite brand, with a Vortex engine, he competed at the weekend at La Conca during the opening round of the WSK Master Series, which was his first race in this category. Trained in the school of 60 Mini, Devlin was not disoriented by fighting in the pack, even though there was too many clashes to demonstrate its potential. He was unable to complete a single lap during the whole of the qualifying heats! He is a fast driver but he needs to gain consistency. His promsing performance on the stopwatch was stopped by a collision in the prefinal which eliminated him from the competition.

Although upset at the time, Devlin quickly regained his composure to focus on a season that is looking busy. Committed in the United States to the Florida Winter Tour in Miami, he will not participate in the Winter Cup in Lonato this year, but he will be in Europe very soon to continue driving his KFJ.

International > Rotax

The-Fastest-in-Qualifying.jpg

 

Les essais chronométrés de la Rotax Winter Cup se sont déroulés dans l'après-midi à Campillos, sous un ciel plutôt dégagé avec des températures proches des 10°C sur le thermomètre, mais rafraîchies à l'air libre par un vent de Nord pas vraiment chaud.

 

En Rotax Junior, le Japonais Sena Sakaguchi (Intrepid) a réalisé le meilleur temps, 1'05''770, devant deux Britanniques sur Tony Kart, Josh Price et Jai Niljar. Le Hollandais Lars Lamborelle (Gillard) se classe 5ème à 2 dixièmes de la pole. Les Français Louis-Ferdinand Simmenauer (ART GP) Tristan Charpentier (OTK) et Gabin Leuillet (Birel) qui découvrent la catégorie, pointent respectivement 25ème, 27ème et 31ème.

 

Chez les Seniors, c'est le Britannique James Singleton (OTK) qui s'est montré le plus rapide en 1'04''372, talonné à 67 millièmes par le Tchèque Jiri Forman (Formula K). Harry Webb (Tony Kart) et Edward Brand (Intrepid) suivent à 1,5 dixièmes. Antoine Barthon (Intrepid) termine en 16ème position. Auteur du 6ème temps, Karol Dabski (OK1) a été exclu pour non-conformité technique.

 

Enfin, la DD2 a été dominée par un rookie, Sean Babington (FA Kart), avec un meilleur tour en 1'02''703, devant l'expérimenté Lituanien Haralds Garkaklis (Gillard) et un autre rookie de choc, Alexandre Finkelstein (Tony Kart). Alexis Coursault (Birel) signe le 9ème temps et Marc Berteaux (Birel) le 12ème. A noter que Xen De Ruwe et Kevin Lüdi ne sont crédités d'aucun temps.

International > Winter Cup

The 18th Winter Cup is ready to put on its show for its fans in the opening event of the season on the South Garda Karting racetrack in Lonato. Plenty of entrants in all the three categories for the traditional event of the beginning of the racing season.

At the start many international kart champions in the top performing category, the KZ2 with gearbox, but many other skilful drivers are present in the junior categories KF junior and KF, with the participation of many new names together with rather experienced drivers.

It is important to point out the great work done by South Garda Karting for this first event of the year: the goal is giving an international appeal to this event.

The programme of the 18th Winter Cup starts on Wednesday 13th February with free practice, with karts obliged to install transponders and race numbers to allow an actual timing in the interest of the attendance and of all the participants. Scrutineering starts on Thursday 14th February for the KF category, while scrutineering for the KFJ and KZ categories are scheduled for Friday morning.

Qualifying starts on 15th February at 10.50am, while in the afternoon from 12.50 there are the first qualifying heats which will continue until Saturday evening. On Sunday 17th February the thrilling final phase: after the second-chance heat and the drivers' presentation (h 12.15pm), at 01.30pm Pre-finals and Finals from 01.30pm.

Great duels are expected in all the categories, in an event which, once again, presents itself at top levels thanks to the participation of all the major manufacturers and teams, all ready to enrich a winners' list which dates back to 1986 and has as first entry the F1 driver Tonio Liuzzi, the young winner of that year's 100 ICA category.

In KZ2 there is a rather large number of favourites, beginning with Tony Kart which, besides Dreezen, fields Marco Ardigò, the KF1 World Champion Flavio Camponeschi and Mirko Torsellini, who will have to deal with top level teams. CRG presents Fabian Federer, while Davide Forè, always on CRG, will race for the Polish team DTK. Among the champions participating in this category, at the start also Ben Hanley with Art GP, Bas Lammers with Praga, Paolo De Conto and Roberto Toninelli with Birel, as well as Arnaud Kozlinski with the Birel-AVG team, Riccardo Negro with DR, Yannick De Brabander at his debut with Maranello, Antony Abasse with Sodikart.

In KF most of the attention is concentrated on Max Verstappen's performance with CRG, recent winner in KZ2 in the first round of the WSK Master in La Conca. George Russell is expected to perform well at his debut with Birel, Lance Stroll and Tom Joyner with Chiesa Corse, Karol Basz with Tony Kart, Armand Convers with Kosmic beside the home champion LucaCorberi at the debut in this more powerful category after winning the KF3 world cup last year. In the race also other protagonists and first rate teams such as LH Racing Team, Energy Corse, New Force, Art GP, Ricky Flynn, Ward Racing etc.

Among the new talents of the KF Junior category, there is also Giuliano Alesi, son of the Ferrari champion Jean Alesi, who starts his apprenticeship in karting. Absloutely gripping the family 'feud' between the two Lorandi brothers Alessio and Leonardo, who race in the same category this year.
