Coro unanime tra partecipanti - piloti e squadre - e osservatori contro il timing di questi Campionati Mondiali KF2 che propongono solo 3 manche di qualificazione per ogni pilota con un obiettivo importante annesso: rientrare nei primi 17 del proprio gruppo. Ecco alcuni dei discorsi che si sentono più spesso nei paddock di Zuera.

 

Il minimo problema, di ordine meccanico o sportivo, è sinonimo di mancata qualificazione senza possibilità di recuperare. Anche se la fortuna interviene sempre negli sport motoristici, questo fattore assume immediatamente un'importanza oltre ogni limite, soprattutto nelle prove cronometrate disputate in condizioni atmosferiche variabili, visto che era già stato stabilito un rigido programma.

 

Nel momento in cui le scuderie di karting partecipanti tendono a diminuire visti i costi della competizioni ad alto livello, non si capisce perché si è applicato un regolamento di questo tipo che va contro gli interessi di questo sport e le aspettative dei partecipanti. Quanti concorrenti rientreranno a casa delusi per non aver potuto sfruttare correttamente le proprie possibilità? Quanti di loro cambieranno sport per avere più soddisfazioni e spendere il proprio denaro?

 

Su un circuito come quello di Zuera, lungo 1700 m. non sarebbe assurdo vedere più di 34 piloti in pista per le finali. Rispettando le regole di sicurezza in vigore in certi paesi, sarebbe possibile schierare almeno 50 piloti. Questo permetterebbe anche di far girare più a lungo ogni concorrente e ridurre così l'incertezza delle qualificazioni senza superare il timing. Inoltre lo spettacolo sarebbe più intenso per la gioia del pubblico.

Last-start.jpg

 

And this is the last qualifying heat for the 2010 World Championship. The game is already almost complete, lacking only a few results for the full list of qualifiers. Chris Lock and Sébastien Bailly shared the front row. The latter was confined to the outside but reacted strongly to take back 4th and then 2nd place behind Lock who escaped. Fraïsse was fourth behind Van Der Raad. On the next lap Clement Bluy took 4th before passing Van der Raad for 3rd place. Chamberlain was back again like a rocket. Vigano retired.


The differences were narrowing somewhat in the lead, Lock was still far ahead. Chamberlain, the fastest on the track, was attacking in 5th. Bluy was in second position before Bailly, himself hounded by Thomas Jager and Chamberlain. He attacked on the last lap and went into second position. Lock won from Chamberlain, Bailly, Jager and Bluy. Fraïsse finished 13th behind Da Luz. Belmaaziz was 19th.

Luca Ghiotto, penalized by 10'' in the previous heat and Jarno Hamppi led the pack for this round. Behind them, Gerard Barrabeig and Joel Johansson were serious contenders.

Barrabeig was the undisputed winner of the race before Ghiotto and Johansson. 4th and 5th was Basz and Kanamaru. Maisano in 10th and D'Agosto in 13th may not be qualified.
