Mathieu Gaillard, actuel leader du Championnat en catégorie KZ2

 

Deuxième étape du Championnat de France Karting 2011, le GPO d'Angerville s'annonce sous les meilleurs auspices tant par le nombre de participants, que par la qualité des différents plateaux. La course aux titres vient à peine de commencer et les possibilités sont encore très grande d'assister à des retournements de situation. Pour peu que la météo soit favorable, on peut s'attendre à un beau week-end sportif en Ile-de-France.

 

La catégorie KZ2 continue à faire recette avec de nouveaux arrivants dans le Championnat de France comme Bejamin et Clément Da Silva sur Birel/TM ou Paul David (Tony Kart/TM). Tony Lavanant (PCR/TM) sera à nouveau de la partie avec le team hollandais AVG Racing. Mathieu Gaillard (Energy/TM) aura la tâche de conserver son avantage face à d'autres gaillards de la trempe de Thomas Mich (Birel/TM), le second du classement provisoire, Anthony Abbasse et Pierre Ragues (Sodi/Maxter). Morgan Weber (Merlin/TM), Yan Pesce (BRM/Maxter), Christophe Benoit (Birel/TM) ou Charles Fiault (Sodi/Maxter) seront là pour animer les débats sur le devant de la scène.

International > "U18" World Karting Championship

Jesolo.jpg

It is on a track laden with history that "U18" World Championship and Academy Trophy Drivers will be invited to get to know the equipment with which they will participate in these prestigious competitions. The Jesolo "Pista Azzura" has seen they greatest Drivers and hosted the biggest events: several World Championships (1987 and 1990), many European Championships, and that "Coppa dei Campioni" (Champions' Cup) which was the most coveted non-championship event with the largest number of entries in the 1970's and 80's.

 

On 3 and 4 June the CIK-FIA will pitch its paddock tents at that venue to welcome the World Championship competitors & Academicians and enable them to discover the context of these CIK-FIA-designed championships. These "tests days" will take place over two days. Friday will be dedicated to the distribution of chassis by drawing lots, the installation of engines and the fitting of items necessitating a precise placing, to begin with the seat.

 

Every supplier entered in the competitions will be present at the circuit, namely Parolin for the U18 WKE engines and the complete Academy Paolin-FIM karts, Panta (second generation E10 fuel), LeCont (tyres) and all the chassis brands in competition for the World Make title (Zanardi, Swiss Hutless, Top Kart, MS Kart, Sodi, Tecno, Mach 1, Righetti Ridolfi, Haase, Maranello, Intrepid, Jesolo, PCR, Energy and Parolin).

 

The free practice sessions will take place from 9 hours to 16 hours on Saturday. The choice of Jesolo for these tests should please not only the Drivers, who will find a difficult and demanding course, but in addition their families and those accompanying them are bound to enjoy the town's touristic appeal, its lido, its beeches and proximity to Venice. Plenty to combine business with pleasure in this Ascension weekend!

Pilot > Sean Gelael

After a break in his racing programme, Sean Gelael got back to his FA Kart/Vortex for the CIK-FIA North European Trophy, i.e. the qualifying round for the European KF2 Championship, held in the UK on the PF International circuit. It did not take Sean long to understand the subtleties of the layout: he was 27th out of 55 entered drivers in time qualifying and constantly in the top 15 during the difficult qualification heats. 46th in the provisional standings, he was 12th among the B finalists and aiming to conclude in the first 8.

 

He accomplished his goal in Race 1, going up to 7th. Everything was still possible in Race 2, where Sean went up to 4th before he was run into by another driver he had just overtaken. His spoiler was torn off and he was forced to get back to the stands for repairs, unable to do better than 17th. 10th in the combined classification of the two races, he missed the qualification for the European Championship for a hair's breadth.

Pilot > Felix Nilsson

Felix-Nilsson-KF3.jpg

 

In Varennes, Felix Nilsson performed the most beautiful race in his young career while achieving an important success. Facing the elite of international drivers, the Swedish young driver showed great determination and combined speed and regularity while avoiding all the obstacles of an event of this kind. Not only did he qualify directly for the European KF3 Championship, which will be held in Zuera next July, but he also staged a remarkable recovery during the final race to conclude with a 13th place, moving up 14 places.

 

Starting far back after his 30th time in time qualifying, Felix began his heats pretty bad with a 28th place. Then the LM Karting team worked twice as hard to give him a top performance kart and Felix climbed straight away to third in the following heat. He then gained other good positions and concluded with a 27th place in the provisional standings: at that point he was already qualified for the European Championship, being among the 34 best drivers.

 

Galvanised by this result, Felix concluded with an extraordinary final race where he avoided collisions and gained 14 places, to conclude with a 13th place and times that are now very close to those of the fastest. Varennes will definitely be stamped in his memory as a decisive turning point.

Evenement National > FFSA Karting

Organisé sur des karts exclusivement propulsés par l’énergie électrique, les Masters Kart effectueront son come back les 10 et 11 décembre prochains à Bercy où les stars de la F1 sont une nouvelle fois attendues en nombre ! Au même titre qu’ERDF, TF1, National Citer, Sodi, la Mairie de Paris…, la Fédération Française du Sport Automobile a décidé de s’engager aux côtés de l’équipe d’organisation emmenée par Philippe Streiff.

« Quatre points majeurs nous ont convaincu d’apporter notre soutien aux promoteurs du prochain ERDF Masters Kart de Bercy », déclarait Nicolas Deschaux, lors de la conférence de presse organisée le mardi 3 mai à Paris. « En premier lieu, il y a bien sûr le facteur humain. Nous avons beaucoup de respect pour Philippe Streiff et nous sommes admiratifs des actions que ce très grand passionné de sport automobile initie », soulignait le Président de la FFSA. « Ensuite, il y a la dimension sportive tant chacun se souvient de la promotion formidable que les premiers ‘Bercy’ avaient été pour la discipline karting ! Troisièmement, nous sommes persuadés que l’impact médiatique de la manifestation sera aussi remarquable qu’il y a dix ans, notamment grâce à la vitrine exceptionnelle que devraient de nouveau composer les pilotes attendus, pour beaucoup issus de la Formule 1. Enfin, l’exemplarité de cet événement, 100% électrique, rejoint totalement les valeurs que la FFSA défend et les axes stratégiques vers lesquelles elle oriente sa politique générale. »

En plus de la gestion sportive que ses officiels assureront (notamment au niveau de la Direction de Course et de la sécurité des pilotes) et de la valorisation du réseau national des Ecoles Françaises de Karting qu’elle proposera à tous de découvrir, la FFSA organisera la sélection préalable des dix pilotes internationaux qui participeront à la compétition réservée aux Juniors ! Une façon de mettre les pilotes de F1 de demain, en condition.
