In the nature of karting
Here we are. As always at this time of the year, with the end of year celebrations over, reward for what seemed a never-ending season, in the coldest time of the year, karting starts to pulse. It seems a contradiction, maybe it is, because we cannot imagine a vision that would promise God knows what aims. Expectations are always the same: that karting picks up, brings back the numbers and springs to life.
To tell the truth, you can feel something stirring, maybe because as always, it is at this time that the attention increases and we are all hoping that this year things will change. Maybe it is because it is at times like these more than others that you do feel the fermentation, like water about to boil, like an object in movement, as seen in Lonato, where every day wheels are craving to spin as they prepare for the new season, which is about to start.

 

So, as I have already said in the editorial for the Italian edition of Vroom, at this time of the year, one always makes guesses as to what regards expectations for this motorsport. On this occasion, I'd like to underline that in making forecasts, and/or giving some futuristic vision, the usual comments might seem futile and therefore not appropriate. You see, today, year 2013, hope - the anchor to which everyone has been holding on to in one way or another (wishing) over these past 3 years - can no longer be a moral support, it is no longer plausible. The fact that karting is once again producing interest, first and foremost for fans, simply cannot depend on fate: it is like believing in a blessing falling from the sky. We are all aware of the reason why we have got to this stage, and Italy, for example, as reference light house that once was, it has now been reduced as a rear light of the international movement. However, I have the feeling that something is happening in Italy, in Europe or in the world. Maybe, who knows where, there is the magma, which is boiling and ready to explode, surprising everyone like when you watch a volcano erupting.

 

The time has come to change the tune. To look ahead proving to be ready and participate to a rebirth. Because the success of this motorsport depends mainly on people who can see its potentiality. Like those at Rotax, for example. They have seen it first, and for a long time they have seen what karts could offer. It is thanks to them if karting fans today can make the most of this opportunity. Fifteen years have passed and this formula is still very important to allow karting to maintain its breeding role and its ability to promote karting and kart racing throughout the world..

 

This is why we must look ahead with good hopes. When a project is well done, with clear goal and intent like the Rotax Max project, no crises can disturb such enthusiasm. The international breeding ground keeps on boiling and when we least expect it, it will explode ... It is in its nature.

Armand-Convers-KF.jpg

 

La première épreuve internationale de la saison 2013, la WSK Master Series de La Conca, a permis au Kosmic Racing Department de se placer d'ores et déjà dans le peloton de tête des grandes équipes. Armand Convers et Nicklas Nielsen ont indéniablement marqué la compétition KF de leur empreinte, méritant autant l'un que l'autre la victoire, grâce à un matériel ultra-compétitif et parfaitement au point.

 

Convers a placé la barre très haut d'entrée de jeu en réussissant le temps de référence du week-end lors de la Superpole. Personne ne parviendra à faire mieux ! Nielsen se révèle ensuite dans les manches qualificatives avec deux victoires successives et un meilleur tour à son actif. Sûr et rapide, le jeune Danois semble avoir course gagnée en préfinale quand son allumage le trahit dans le dernier passage. Pendant ce temps, l'expérimenté Français enchaîne les meilleurs temps en course. En finale, Convers se bat dans le trio de tête mais la victoire lui échappe de quelques centimètres seulement après qu'il ait été gêné dans le dernier virage.

 

« Nous avons fourni à nos deux pilotes un matériel très performant capable de gagner. » explique Olivier Maréchal, le team principal. « Les châssis Kosmic et les moteurs Vortex 2013 sont au top dès la première épreuve, c'est une certitude qui met tout le monde en confiance. Maintenant que notre travail en KF est validé, nous pouvons proposer des prestations convaincantes à nos clients en KF Junior. »

Pilot > Devlin DeFrancesco

A 13 year old young driver from Canada, Devlin DeFrancesco already has a track record and an enviable reputation in America. Canadian Vice-Champion, 3rd in the United States Championship, he also participated in the WSK Master Series in the 60 Mini category in 2012 with a strong fourth place in the championship.

This season, he will again divide his time between America and Europe while racing in juniors. The first rounds of the 2013 Florida Winter Tour have already been run with excellent results: 5th and 6th places in TaG Junior, 3rd and 5th place in Rotax Junior, held the following week on the same circuit at Palm Beach.

 

"But KFJ is my favourite!" explained young Devlin enthusiastically. "There's more power, more grip, the KFJ is more fun! And I have also received advice from Jordon Lennox-Lamb, which helps me a lot!"

 

At the wheel of his CRG, his favorite brand, with a Vortex engine, he competed at the weekend at La Conca during the opening round of the WSK Master Series, which was his first race in this category. Trained in the school of 60 Mini, Devlin was not disoriented by fighting in the pack, even though there was too many clashes to demonstrate its potential. He was unable to complete a single lap during the whole of the qualifying heats! He is a fast driver but he needs to gain consistency. His promsing performance on the stopwatch was stopped by a collision in the prefinal which eliminated him from the competition.

Although upset at the time, Devlin quickly regained his composure to focus on a season that is looking busy. Committed in the United States to the Florida Winter Tour in Miami, he will not participate in the Winter Cup in Lonato this year, but he will be in Europe very soon to continue driving his KFJ.

The-Fastest-in-Qualifying.jpg

 

Les essais chronométrés de la Rotax Winter Cup se sont déroulés dans l'après-midi à Campillos, sous un ciel plutôt dégagé avec des températures proches des 10°C sur le thermomètre, mais rafraîchies à l'air libre par un vent de Nord pas vraiment chaud.

 

En Rotax Junior, le Japonais Sena Sakaguchi (Intrepid) a réalisé le meilleur temps, 1'05''770, devant deux Britanniques sur Tony Kart, Josh Price et Jai Niljar. Le Hollandais Lars Lamborelle (Gillard) se classe 5ème à 2 dixièmes de la pole. Les Français Louis-Ferdinand Simmenauer (ART GP) Tristan Charpentier (OTK) et Gabin Leuillet (Birel) qui découvrent la catégorie, pointent respectivement 25ème, 27ème et 31ème.

 

Chez les Seniors, c'est le Britannique James Singleton (OTK) qui s'est montré le plus rapide en 1'04''372, talonné à 67 millièmes par le Tchèque Jiri Forman (Formula K). Harry Webb (Tony Kart) et Edward Brand (Intrepid) suivent à 1,5 dixièmes. Antoine Barthon (Intrepid) termine en 16ème position. Auteur du 6ème temps, Karol Dabski (OK1) a été exclu pour non-conformité technique.

 

Enfin, la DD2 a été dominée par un rookie, Sean Babington (FA Kart), avec un meilleur tour en 1'02''703, devant l'expérimenté Lituanien Haralds Garkaklis (Gillard) et un autre rookie de choc, Alexandre Finkelstein (Tony Kart). Alexis Coursault (Birel) signe le 9ème temps et Marc Berteaux (Birel) le 12ème. A noter que Xen De Ruwe et Kevin Lüdi ne sont crédités d'aucun temps.
