Une prestigieuse épreuve de loisir "clé en main" avec du matériel de compétition neuf de 34 chevaux (Intrepid-TM KF4 2-temps), voilà ce que propose à nouveau le AAD Group Monaco les 15 et 16 octobre 2011. En dépit de l'annulation de la Monaco Kart Cup, la traditionnelle endurance sera organisée sur le magnifique "Kartodrome" de Valence, le circuit préféré des kartmen français. Baptisée 6 Heures de France et labellisée "Monte-Carlo 6 Hours Kart Series", cette compétition atypique séduit chaque année des passionnés de tous horizons: amateurs, gentlemen drivers et pilotes de notoriété.

 

Ravitaillement_6H.jpgCréée en 1995 par AAD Organisation, cette course de 6 Heures a vu défiler des noms prestigieux du sport automobile et voit s'affronter chaque année de nombreuses nationalités. Cette année encore, le programme s'annonce alléchant avec une manche de 2 heures en nocturne le samedi soir à partir de 20h30, suivie d'une deuxième manche de 4 heures de 10 à 14h le dimanche. La première marche du podium sera plus que jamais convoitée, puisque l'équipage vainqueur aura le privilège de gagner son engagement pour les 6 Heures du Castellet 2012, lors de la remise des prix qui clôturera l'événement.


Outre la qualité d'organisation de renommée mondiale, un autre attrait des 6 Heures de France réside dans le choix du matériel: un puissant 2-temps de 34 chevaux. Chaque équipe aura en effet à sa disposition un kart complet neuf proche de ceux utilisés au plus haut niveau de la compétition, avec châssis Intrepid Sirius et moteur TM KF4 de 125cc avec embrayage et démarreur électrique. L'assistance technique sera assurée sur place par le constructeur.

Pour assurer l'équité entre chaque équipage, tous les pilotes seront pesés et un rapport poids/puissance équitable sera imposé. Les équipes pourront être composées de 3 à 5 pilotes, l'accès aux accompagnants étant illimités et gratuits.

Planète Academy

Lorsqu'ils débutent en sport automobile, la plupart des pilotes ne rêvent bien souvent que de F1. Certes, depuis la création de l'Auto Sport Academy en 1993, 14 pilotes y ont déjà goûté et le dernier en date n'est autre que notre Champion 2007 : Jean-Eric Vergne. Membre du Red Bull Junior Team depuis 2008, il devrait prendre le volant de la Toro Rosso Ferrari aux essais du vendredi matin dès le Grand Prix de Corée le 14 octobre prochain et nous espérons bien sûr le voir à temps plein dans la catégorie suprême en 2012 ! Mais, il y a peu d'élus...

 

Pour autant, certains arrivent à tirer leur épingle du jeu et font de belle carrière comme Benoît Tréluyer ou encore Romain Dumas, formés en 1995, aujourd'hui pilotes officiels Audi et respectivement vainqueurs des 24 Heures du Mans 2011 et 2010. Il existe en effet d'autres alternatives auxquelles l'Auto Sport Academy prépare tout aussi bien. La preuve avec une série d'interviews d'anciens élèves, de la génération suivant celle des Bourdais, Montagny, Sarrazin, Dumas, Tréluyer et consorts... Certains roulent encore en monoplace, d'autres sont au volant de berline et d'autres encore ont bifurqués vers le rallye ! Mais quoi qu'il en soit, ils parviennent à assouvir leur passion, parfois à en vivre et ils se font remarquer...

International > World Karting Championship

Things have changed since that strange race 3 of the KF1 World Championship at Sarno. Felice Tiene (CRG / Maxter) was excluded and started last. Nyck De Vries (Zanardi / Parilla) would start from 17th place, Alexander Albon (Intrepid / TM) sixth. Flavio Camponeschi and Ignazio D'Agosto were a fully Tonykart front row, while Kosmic / Vortex were featured in the second row with Sébastien Bailly and Zdenek Groman.


Groman made a great start, but Albon was even better and led from the first corner. Camponeschi passed Bailly to gain third place. Karol Basz (RK / BMB) returned strongly over Bailly and captured fourth. D'Agosto was 10th, De Vries was coming back gently or cautiously for now. Lock and Tiene retired after a collision.


Albon escaped, he was the fastest on the track, and Camponeschi took on the 4th lap. De Vries returned to the top 10 on lap 6 and then set the fastest lap, the rocket set off. He passed Roussel under braking at the hairpin at the bottom of the circuit and closed on Agosto. Camponeschi gained back ground on the leader Albon with the fastest lap. Basz took Groman to take third.


Camponeschi was rapidly gaining on Albon. He took the lead under  braking on the 12th of the 15 laps of the race. De Vries attacked Bailly who resisted, but finally gave up sixth position. Camponeschi got away from Albon. De Vries attacked Yu Kanamaru (Tony Kart / Vortex) but he decided not to let it go. Roussel took advantage of the fray to overtake D'Agosto.

International > World Cup

There was heavy concentration on the grid for the KF3 final: Charles Leclerc (Intrepid / TM) was shot by photographers, Max Verstappen (CRG / Maxter) seemed quieter. Esteban Ocon (FA Kart / Vortex) and Antonio ''Speedy'' Fuoco (Tony Kart / Vortex) were on second row ahead of Callan O'Keeffe (FA Kart / Vortex) and Harrison Scott (Intrepid / TM).


Excellent start for Leclerc, followed like a shadow by Ocon, and Verstappen fourth. But Ocon took the lead before the end of the first lap with O'Keeffe and Verstappen third and fourth from Leclerc. However Ocon yielded in fourth place while O'Keeffe led. Fuoco was in seventh behind Scott.


Lap 4: Leclerc came back stronger and Verstappen went out onto the grass and fell to eighth. O'Keeffe dominated at the moment with a 1.4'' lead on Leclerc, Ocon and Scott were overtaken by Mattia Vita (Birel / BMB). Leclerc came back to on the leader, and Scott and Vita held off Ocon. Verstappen lost more places, was 14th and eventually gave up.


Halfway, Leclerc was less than a second behind the leader, with the fastest lap and he continued p to up the tempo. He gained by two or three tenths per lap. On lap 10, Leclerc passes on the last right. O'Keeffe was well behaved, and did not block. Ocon was still in third position, 1'' from Scott, Vita, Speedy, Oystein Helgheim (Parolin / TM) and Matthew Graham (Zanardi / Parilla). Valentin Naud (Tony Kart / Vortex) was in a nice 12th and was always pushing, as was Dorian Boccolacci (Birel / BMB) in 17th.

Leclerc escaped irretrievably to victory. Ocon needed to watch for the return of Vita in the last two laps. He defended as much as possible by closing the doors on the last lap, but his pursuers attacked and he spun to finish 15th. Charles Leclerc won a superb victory in the World Cup, during an outstanding weekend! O'Keeffe finished second and Scott took third place ahead of Helgheim and Speedy.

It was difficult to predict the result before the start of the KF2 final of the World Cup at Sarno. Without any particular problems, Loris Spinelli (Tony Kart / Vortex) had the best chance to establish himself, it was undeniable, but Paolo Ippolito (Kosmic / Vortex) was very fast and Tanart Sathienthirakul (Tony Kart / TM) had the potential finally to win a major title. However, a lot could happen during the race. There was stress for Moller-Madsen, whose engine would not start on the grid. The intervention of his mechanic allowed him to start, but last.


Sami Luka went out into the first corner, and was Spinelli overtaken by Sathienthirakul, but was overwhelmed by Antonio Giovinazzi (PCR / TM). Paolo Ippolito (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Jakub Dalewski (Tony Kart / Vortex) dropped back on the second lap, Pascal Belmaaziz (DR / Parilla) took fourth ahead of Sam Snell (Energy / TM) and Christian Sorensen (Tony Kart / Vortex). Snell dropped two places to Sorensen and Michelle Gatting (Birel / BMB). The battle raged between Giovinazzi and Spinelli. Stefano Cucco (Birel / Parilla) took seventh from Victor Sendin (Tony Kart / Vortex) before losing two places.


Lap 5: Giovinazzi led from Sathienthirakul and Spinelli. Belmaaziz took third on the next lap, Sathienthirakul fell to 5th. Giovinazzi had a small lead, but it was very tight in the group of four chasers. Sorensen attacked Belmaaziz, Gatting took 5th. Spinelli came dangerously close to Giovinazzi, the leader, and took command of the race on the eighth lap. Gatting passed Belmaaziz, now threatened by Sathienthirakul. Cucco was the seventh, eighth was Ippolito, Gianni Vigorito (Birel / BMB) 9th, 10th Snell and Sendin 11th.


At halfway, Spinelli had a narrow lead of 0.5'' from Giovinazzi, and the challenges gradually became less frequent. Sathienthirakul dropped to 9th. Sorensen, in third, gradually closed on Giovinazzi, Belmaaziz still held off Ippolito, who had set the fastest lap. Unless something dramatic happened, Spinelli was on track to win the World Cup followed by Giovinazzi and Sorensen. Gatting retired on lap 15. Belmaaziz was overtaken for fifth by Ippolito.


Sorensen succeeded in catching Giovinazzi with 2 laps to go. He passed on the second last lap. Belmaaziz was back from it with Vigorito and Cucco took the opportunity to pass them both.
