Is Max Verstappen (Intrepid-TM) invincible in the KF2 category? During the Qualifying Heats, he certainly gave that impression to his adversaries. The very young Dutch competitor, son of the former Formula 1 driver, won his 6 Qualifying Heats, on each occasion with a comfortable lead. Whether the track was dry, damp or soaked, Max beat them all. So he will start in Pole Position for Race 1, scheduled for late Sunday morning. For the Dutchman as for his adversaries, it will be vital however to take a maximum number of points before returning to the PF International track, in Great Britain, the second and last meeting of the European competition.


But the game is far from over! Monaco's Charles Leclerc (ART GP-Parilla) did no worse than 4th place in his Heats, so he will start on the front row. Only 53rd at the end of Practice, the Finnish Teemu Markus Petjoi (Tony Kart-Vortex) rose incredibly to 3rd position on the starting grid for Race 1. In particular, he got the better of the Czech Tereza Gromanova (Kosmic-Vortex), second in Practice, the British Tom Joyner (LH-BMB), the Finnish Niklas Tiihonen (Energy-Parilla), the Italian "Speedy", alias Antonio Fuoco (Tony Kart-Vortex), the Danish Thomas Krebs (Maranello-TM), the Italian Felice Tiene (CRG-BMB) and the Norwegian Dennis Olsen (Energy-TM). Slated among the favourites, the Polish Karol Basz (Birel-BMB) and the Italian Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart-Vortex) will take the grid for the start of Race 1 in 11th and 12th positions, far from where expected.


It is impossible to close this account of the Qualifying Heats without highlighting the exploits of Benjamin Barnicoat (ART GP-Parilla). Disqualified in Qualifying Practice after an engine assembly error, the British Driver fought back from despair energetically. Starting in last position on the grid for his 6 Qualifying Heats and despite a technical problem as well as some jostling in the pack, the runner-up for the CIK-FIA Academy Trophy climbed from 106th to 22nd position in the intermediate Classification. On Sunday he could therefore seek to score points in the two Races before taking to the PF International track in Brandon (Great Britain) on 19 to 22 July next.

With two victories in 3 races, Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM) is on pole in KZ1 on Saturday night. He is joined on the front row by Kozlinski (PCR / TM), both fast and consistent, ahead of a second row that is 100% CRG / Maxter, composed of Fabian Federer and Jonathan Thonon. Most of the favorites are in the top 10, which promises good finals on Sunday at Wackersdorf.

Even if the KF2 European Championship intermediate at Wackersdorf likely to be late as there are many cases being handled by a panel of picky stewards, the unofficial version from Kartcom gives a good idea of the situation at the end of 21 heats which started on Friday. Max Verstappen (Intrepid / TM) has won all his races, a feat all the more creditable with track conditions which were tricky to say the least.

In second, the excellent Charles Leclerc (ART GP / Parilla) scored 11 points higher, in third, Teemu Petjoi (Tony Kart / Vortex) totaled 27 points. Tereza Gromanova (Kosmic / Vortex) completed some magnificent races and is in fourth position ahead of Niklas Tiihonen (Energy / Parilla), Tom Joyner (LH / BMB) and Antonio Fuoco (Tony Kart / Vortex).

In the French clan, it's a bit up and down . After many adventures, Anthoine Hubert (Formula K / TM) is in 24th position as the only qualified French driver. Victor Compere (Kosmic / Vortex) would have got through without a highly debatable penalty for a problem during a slow procedure. The others won't be fighting for points in the European rankings.

Here is the unofficial Kartcom classification while awaiting the official results.

21 heats later, Jan Midrla (Birel / TM) is still leading the KZ2 European Championship Wackersdorf. However, the alternating dry / wet made it difficult for more than one driver, contact and clashes were numerous, unavoidable on a track like this one. The Czech driver has only won one race, but he never crashed, which is essential in this competition and holds the top ranking, unofficially calculated by Kartcom, despite his 12 points. He is followed by Michele Di Martino (Energy / TM), Flavio Sani (Birel / TM) and Jordon Lennox-Lamb (CRG / Maxter). Charles Fiault (Sodi / Maxter) was the first French survivor in 14th position, Clement Da Silva (Praga / TM) is in 20th, Alexandre Arrue (Righetti / TM) is 22nd.

The few raindrops that fell on Wackersdorf didn't really affect the course of the third and final heat for KZ1. However there was the traditional crash at the first corner which required the "Slow" procedure while the doctor examined Jérémy Iglesias. He eventually recovered and the race was restarted. Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM) let Paolo De Conto (Birel / BMB) take away his lead, Fabian Federer (CRG / Maxter) overtook Ben Hanley (ART GP / TM) and Kozlinski (PCR / TM).



Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) lost a lot of places being pushed out of the way, Jonathan Thonon (CRG / Maxter) recovered to the front quickly, while Armand Convers (Kosmic / Vortex) attacked the during his first complete hear (he retired twice today). Pex won his second race ahead of De Conto, Thonon ahead of Federer in 3rd place, Ardigo took 4th from Hanley and Federer. Convers was eighth, Kozlinski 9th, De Brabander 10th, Fore 11th, Lammers 12th and Hajek 13th.
