Qu’on se le dise, la piste de Karting de Francorchamps va subir une cure de jouvence ! A la fin du mois d’avril, et si les conditions météo le permettent, c’est en effet un tout nouvel asphalte qui sera posé sur les 1092 mètres du circuit ardennais. Et ce ne sera pas le seul changement de cette saison 2014 !
 
« La pose d’un nouvel asphalte, c’est une phase importante des travaux que nous avons entrepris il y a deux ans pour améliorer ce merveilleux outil », se réjouit Tanguy Antoine, le Directeur Opérationnel du RACB. « Sur ces deux années, les choses ont déjà pas mal bougé. Il a d’abord fallu modifier le dernier virage, en créant une chicane, et procéder à divers changements pour de nouveau obtenir une homologation de la CIK-FIA. Ensuite, nous avons aussi rénové la cafétéria et installé un nouveau système de chronométrage pour nos compétitions loisirs. Enfin, la flotte de karts de location a été totalement renouvelée, tout comme les équipements que nous mettons à la disposition des pilotes d’un jour. »

 

Si la météo le permet, les travaux de réasphaltage seront effectués du 22 au 25 avril prochains par la société Bodarwé, un gage de sérieux dans la région spadoise. Et si le nouvel enrobé du circuit sera le changement le plus notable, il ne sera pas le seul. « Nous recyclerons le raclage de l’ancien asphalte pour améliorer l'état du parking, qui sert aussi de paddock lors des courses », poursuit Tanguy Antoine. « Par ailleurs, pas moins de 25 prises électriques seront installées dans le paddock. Et, pour terminer, nous avons acheté une balance que nous pourrons mettre à la disposition des organisateurs qui mettent sur pied une épreuve sur notre circuit. »

Pas de doute, les utilisateurs du tracé ardennais apprécieront les efforts effectués. Ils se réjouiront aussi d’apprendre que ce n’est probablement pas terminé, loin s’en faut ! « Nous discutons actuellement avec le grand circuit, qui est propriétaire des terrains sur lesquels est érigée la piste », précise encore le Directeur Opérationnel. « Mais si tout se passe comme nous l’espérons, il y aura encore une troisième phase de travaux. Nous voudrions en effet rénover et aménager le bâtiment existant. Mais on en reparlera en temps voulu… »
 
En attendant, le Karting de Francorchamps poursuit son renouvellement et veut en faire profiter ses clients. Ainsi, une journée de découverte du tracé réasphalté sera offerte gratuitement aux pilotes le vendredi 9 mai avec trois sessions disponibles (9-12h, 13h30-16h30 et 17h30-21h, avec l’éclairage de la piste en soirée). Ensuite, le 18 mai, la Belgian ASAF Karting Series sera la première à inaugurer le tracé lors d’un week-end de compétition. Un rendez-vous sportif à ne pas manquer !

Team > RFM Motorsport

The young drivers in KF at the RFM team have progressed well since the beginning of the season. During the second round of the WSK Super Master at Castelletto, Lando Norris dominated early in the meeting and Jehan Daruvala emerged in the finals, taking his first victory in the category. In KF-Junior, Logan Sargeant picked up the pace and was at the front for a long time before finishing in the top five of the competition which was marked by several incidents. More than ever, RFM is positioned as the No. 1 team in the CIK-FIA categories of KF and KF-Junior.

It was a great success for Jehan Daruvala on the twisty 7 Laghi circuit, with the first win of his young career in KF, and the first for the British team in the category this season. However it was Lando Norris who marked the beginning of the event by achieving a perfect score in qualifying with his pole position and in the heats with three straight wins. His time of 47'' 824 was also never equaled. A collision early in the final wrecked his chances of victory. Meanwhile, Jehan Daruvala was gradually getting the measure of the track at Castelletto and won his prefinal thanks to a relentless ascent. He was then alone in the lead from the first to the last lap of the final by dominating the competition, without faltering, so it was an indisputable victory against the best specialists in the category.

 

The intensity of the races at Castelletto somewhat thwarted the plans for the RFM drivers in KF-Junior, and several race incidents prevented them from getting the desired results. However, Logan Sargeant did beautifully in the heats with a win and fastest lap, and took the lead in the intermediate classification and then his prefinal. Starting on the front row of the final Logan dropped back to 7th in the battle before finishing in 5th position. Enaam Ahmed was less successful: in the Prefinal he was 5th with the fastest time of the race, but he lost time on the first lap of the final, although he managed to climb up to 8th position. Max Fewtrell was not particularly inspired by the Castelletto track. Although he made a great comeback to 6th place in his prefinal he dropped to the back of the pack with his teammate Sun Yue Yang in the final.

Now as competitive in KF as in KF-Junior, RFM drivers are well prepared for the rest of the season which looks very promising for Ricky Flynn's British team.

The Formula K team have done a good job at the second round of the WSK Super Master Series at Castelletto. On the unusual twisty 7 Laghi circuit, Bas Lammers did well in KZ2 driving a very competitive kart, powered by a highly efficient Parilla engine prepared by RS Falcon (Tec-Sav Engineering) and he almost repeated his success from Sarno.

 

After the seventh in qualifying the Dutch driver demonstrated his speed in the heats and took a fastest lap and was second fastest twice. Ranked second and third, he crossed the finish line in front in the final heat before suffering a penalty of 5'' for touching Marco Ardigo in battle, without any intention of harming his opponent. 8th in the intermediate classification, when he could have been third, Lammers took second position in prefinal-B, with the fastest lap.

The duel for victory in the final resumed, with Bas immediately moving in to the wake of the leader Ardigo. Although he was faster as evidenced by a new fastest lap, he never found the opportunity to overtake his rival despite several attempts, the Castelletto track and the 2014 tyres not facilitating overtaking. Finishing second in these conditions remains a very positive outcome for Formula K who are regularly playing a leading role this season with Lammers, especially as his second position in the championship makes him a serious challenger before the last round in two weeks at Muro Leccese.
