Faultless Karasev



The Russian driver Stepan Karasev (Tony Kart / Vortex) set the 13th fastest time, but he has a perfect record of 3 victories over 3 heats in KF2. He is leading the rankings in the WSK Master Series at La Conca. Sami Luka (Energy / TM) is in second ahead of Jacob Nortoft (Birel / BMB), Loris Spinelli (Top Kart / Parilla) and Damiano Fioravanti (Tony Kart / Vortex).


The French driver Victor Sendin (Tony Kart / Vortex) has run his races in the wet and holds a good 7th position, between Max Klinkby-Silver (Birel / BMB) and Christian Sorensen (Tony Kart / Vortex). Nicolaj Moller-Madsen (Energy / TM) was only 18th after his retirement in the second heat. The German Marvin Kirchhofer (RK / BMB) has performed well, but also finds himself penalized by a retirement, so he is 20th.

Often criticized last year for the erratic starts, the WSK has installed speed controls this year as at the CIK races. The device is particularly important at La Conca, where the first right turn is often the scene of epic crashes. For the moment the drivers do not seem to have understood the rule of 50 km / h max and many have been punished. Admittedly 90 kph on the line is a bit excessive ... On a track that is very slippery, crashes are still very common early in the race, the impetuosity of some drivers being difficult to manage. Yet this does not call into question the merits of the system.

WSK Master Series, La Conca, samedi 26 février 2011.


3ème de sa première manche, Dorian Boccolacci a été sévèrement bousculé au départ de la deuxième. Il doit éviter tout accrochage dans la troisième pour garder ses chances de qualification. Plus facile à dire qu'à faire sur une piste détrempée connue pour ses départs agités.

The rain stopped and the sky cleared slightly and it was finally time for first final for KZ. De Conto spun on the famous right after the start, and Rick Dreezen was in the lead ahead of Ardigo. But the race organizers stopped the race for a restart. Not all of the competitors saw it, some stopped and some others were coming at full throttle: result, a big crash on the start line. There was damage, the CKR / TM of Zanchetta for example, but he was not the only competitor affected.

Approximately 20 minutes later, a new start was given, while the day started to darken. De Conto (Energy / TM) got the lead, but veered off at the hairpin, leaving Rick Dreezen (Tony Kart / Vortex) to get away in the lead from Douglas Lundberg (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Gary Catt (Tony Kart / Vortex). Ardigo retired prematurely. Tony Lavanant (PCR / TM) was well in the shot in 5th place.

Lundberg lost 2 places, putting Catt in second position ahead of De Conto. Lavanant took 4th. Beitske Visser (Intrepid / TM) was running in midfield, in 13th, but we thought that her equipment was not as competitive as usual. Dreezen had more than a 4'' lead after 5 laps. Jorrit Pex (CRG / Maxter) made a strong attack and took  4th position, while Lavanant ended up 6th.

Jesper Wernersson (Tony Kart / Vortex) was one of the fastest on the track. It closed on Pex and stole his 4th place. On lap 12, De Conto attacked Catt for 2nd. Wernersson then went for 3rd place, but Catt countered.

Great victory under the floodlights for Rick Dreezen from Paolo De Conto and Gary Catt. Wernersson finished 4th and the 1st KZ2, Pex 5th, Lavanant 6th, Hajek 7th.

Oh the beautiful rain, steady, penetrating, cold, that waters the olive trees but also the La Conca track! It's a hard job kart drivers in these conditions, but if there is a place where the temperature has risen, it is undoubtedly in the helmets of competitors.

In any case, the KZ competition is now on its second round of qualifying and it's slippery. Drivers start in the finishing order of the previous race, which will be beneficial to Gary Catt (Tony Kart / Vortex), Tony Lavanant (PCR / TM) or Beitske Visser (Intrepid / TM). Paolo De Conto (Energy / TM) was finally confirmed in 3rd position for heat 1.

In the panic of the first false start, Visser stopped but managed to get back to resume her place on the grid with great effort. With the lights out, Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex) took off impeccably, but was overtaken by Rick Dreezen (Tony Kart / Vortex) and De Conto at the first hairpin. The Energy driver ran the 1st lap in the lead, but his supremacy was quickly challenged by the Tony Boys. Visser took 5th position ahead of Lavanant, Lundberg and Bressan.

Ardigo was fighting in 8th, while Dreezen led from De Conto, Wernersson and Visser, now followed closely by Lundberg. Lavanant dropped to 12th position. At halfway Ardigo returned to the wake of Visser, in 5th. The situation hardly changed in the last few laps and it was Rick Dreezen who won the race ahead of Paolo De Conto, Jesper Wernersson, the first KZ2, Douglas Lundberg, Marco Ardigo and Beitske Visser. Again domineering, Tony Kart had 4 machines in the top 5.
