Aubry, prince d'Essay

Décidément, Gabriel Aubry (Birel/TM) collectionne les succès à Essay. En 2011, pour sa seconde course en KF3, il avait décroché ses premières victoires françaises sur le tracé normand réputé pour sa sélectivité. Cette année, il a confirmé en dominant sans partage le 4ème GPO de la saison.

 

L'histoire est aussi belle que simple: "Je me sens particulièrement à l'aise sur ce circuit, explique tranquillement Gabi. Tout s'est bien passé, il a fait beau, le matériel marchait bien, les organisateurs sont sympas, j'ai gagné les préfinales et les finales. C'est super !" En effet, pourquoi se compliquer la vie...

Samedi, on commence par la pole au chrono, on enchaîne par une victoire en préfinale, à 3,5'' du deuxième, puis par la victoire finale, 2'' devant Callum Ilott, et à chaque fois, le meilleur tour en course. Dimanche matin, Gabi corse le jeu en réalisant seulement le 4ème temps des essais, mais tue le suspense aussitôt après en remportant la préfinale, avec le meilleur tour, subtilisant la 1ère place à Ilott avant la mi-course. La bagarre était belle ! Il termine le meeting normand sur une seconde victoire, assortie, faut-il le préciser, du meilleur temps.

 

Du coup, Gabriel se retrouve en tête du classement provisoire du Championnat de France KF3 avant la conclusion, à Laval, dans un mois. En attendant, il parait que sa famille et lui songent à élire domicile dans l'Orne, véritable pays de cocagne pour le jeune francilien. Mais ce doit être encore une rumeur de paddock...

CIK-FIA : Communication

Since the European KZ1, KZ2 and KF2 Championships at Wackersdorf, all the major events of the CIK-FIA enjoy a television recording carried out by the CMC (Constanduros Motorsport Consultancy) company.

"We produce a 48-minute programme", explained Ben Constanduros, the young and dynamic producer. "To achieve this, we send to each race a team of 8 people, including 6 cameramen specialised in motor sports and Karting. Subsequently, an editing is made and we propose it to the TV channels with a possible commentary in English or in French. According to the demand we could also provide a commentary in another language... The whole thing is edited within one week, and the first broadcasting takes place exactly 8 days after the race. And we are pleased to report that the outcome is very positive. Karting is quite telegenic, with lots of colours and many action-packed overtaking manœuvres... There is therefore never a dull moment for the spectators during the 48 minutes proposed!"

The channel Motor TV - available in over 40 countries - was immediately very interested by this form of sport, and it broadcasts the report of every event with many replays, commented either in English or in French according to the country concerned, which guarantees huge spin-offs for international Karting!

Organised in Asia, the last two big events of the season (the World KF1 Championship will be held in Macau from 18 to 21 October, and the final of the U18 World Championship will be held in Bahrain from 8 to 10 November) could interest Asian channels.

And there is more! The pictures produced at every event can be supplied free of charge to any TV channel which asks the CIK-FIA. Channels can use either the full report or some excerpts, as have already done Rai Italy, Speed or Skysport UK, which broadcast the highlights in their sporting news.

National Sporting Authorities wishing to push forward the performances of their young Drivers can also receive pictures so as subsequently to distribute them to the main media of their own country.

In short, this is far from the end of Karting reports on television, and all the fans are delighted about it!

Pilot > Thiago Vivacqua

With a new white suit with the portrait of Ayrton Senna, Thiago Vivacqua paid tribute to the greatest Brazilian champion at the World Cup for KF2 - the most important meeting of the international season - held in Spain, on the circuit of Zuera.

 

On his first season in KF2, Thiago continues to make progress race after race. At Zuera, he demonstrated to rightly deserve a place in the top 10. He started far back in timed qualifying due to an ineffective strategic decision, after a few mechanical problems in the first qualifying heat, but afterwards he was able to show his real potential by ranking 4th and 5th.

 

"I finished 27th due to my withdrawal in the first heat" Thiago pointed out. "But I felt confident about the remaining races, I knew I was fast on the circuit of Zuera. I regained 15 places during the pre-final where everything went smoothly. Then, I thought I could do better in the final and be able to enter the top 5, it was perfectly possible. Unfortunately, several collisions ahead of me slowed me down and when I was able to attack, another driver touched me and damaged my front-wheel axle. I could not finish the race".

 

The small disappointment for this final result quickly disappeared after an analysis of Thiago's performances. He has definitely made a lot of progress since the beginning of the season! This young driver has now joined the group of the fastest drivers in a very challenging class, and can look to his future career with confidence.
