Karting is above all a story of men and women, sometimes couples. Passion is the heart of the question ...
But sometimes it's also a beautiful story of friendship ...
Or something that reminds a family ...
Or a real family affair, full of emotion ...
Le contraste était saisissant entre les camions FIA surpuissants mais limités en vitesse (160 km/h) et le Superkart, une des disciplines les plus véloces sur le célèbre circuit de Nogaro, ce 18 & 19 juin 2011. Le climat changeant, épargnait les pilotes de Superkart le samedi tandis que le beau temps reprenait son cours le dimanche. Le Superkart a offert du spectacle au public déambulant, proposant une âpre lutte en tête en 1ère course. Le suspens fut moins patent le dimanche, la course reflétant une physionomie calquée.
Le résumé est clair: Carton plein pour Emmanuel Vinualès, qui rafle tout et s'empare de la tête de tous les championnats (France, Open et Europe).

In order to heighten the Drivers' awareness of anti-doping, the FIA has decided to distribute to each Driver and co-Driver participating in an FIA event (Cup, Championship or Trophy, in all disciplines), an envelope containing a letter reminding them of the main points they MUST know about anti-doping (see attached) and the 2011 so-called “Prohibited List” (which includes all the substances and methods prohibited in competitive sport), in a format allowing the competitors to keep it in their wallet and therefore show it to their doctor or pharmacist whenever they need to take a medicine or any nutritional supplement.
This project got underway at the end of May, with the F1 GP of Monaco, the Monaco GP2 event and the FIA drag racing event at Santa Pod, and will continue until the end of the year , including in the CIK-FIA Karting Championship, Cup and Trophy events.
Another FIA doping prevention project – a long-term one – will be launched in July 2011. This will be an anti-doping e-learning course and quiz for the attention of the Drivers and co-Drivers and of anybody else who is keen to know more about anti-doping in competitive sport.
It will be available in five languages (and more in future) on the FIA website and on the website of all the ASNs that will be willing to participate in this project.
Attached: the letter which is being distributed together with the 2011 Prohibited List booklet.
The last race of the WSK Euro Series meeting at La Conca, was final two in the premier class, KF1. With his great performance, Alexander Albon (Intrepid / TM) is now the favorite. He went ahead of Ignazio D'Agosto (Tony Kart / Vortex), Karol Basz (RK / BMB), Libor Toman (Birel / BMB) and Sébastien Bailly (Kosmic / Vortex). But Nyck De Vries (Zanardi / Parilla) was on a good pace from the start of the race.
Already fourth at the end of the first lap, he attacked D'Agosto in 2nd place and went in pursuit of the leader Albon, who was 3.2'' in front of him. Obviously, Dino Chiesa did not like the domination of Albon and responded to empower his driver. But for now, on lap 5, Albon continued to widen the gap to 4.1.'' It took the fifth place Bailly to start a duel. Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart / Vortex) took the Kosmic driver and Toman followed in the wake. D'Agosto retired on the 8th lap.
In mid-race, Albon still had more than 4 seconds lead ahead of De Vries and 8.5'' from Basz in second. Albon and De Vries were the only two drivers to run regularly in the 47'' lap. Then, a pass! Yu Kanamaru (Tony Kart / Vortex) took Zdenek Groman (Kosmic / Vortex) to gain 12th place. With such gaps, the drivers no longer needed to turn around to watch their opponents, they just look out the corner of their eye to the other side of the circuit.
Alexander Albon showed with this victory that he has lost none of his talent and Intrepid has returned to success. Second by 4.4'', Nyck De Vries no longer appears unbeatable, even if he relegated Karol Basz to 3rd by 8''.
