International > CIK-FIA

Unique in the history of international karting, four CIK-FIA European Champions will be awarded on Sunday at the end of the Competition at Genk (BEL). Direct drive karts in the new categories OK and OK-Junior will meet for their fourth Race of the season. For the gearbox karts in the KZ and KZ2 categories, it will be the third Race of their European programme. The challenge is uncertain in all categories and the famous Belgian circuit will not lack spectacle from 27th to 31st July 2016 with 235 Drivers entered from 41 nations and four continents.

 

This exceptional concentration of talent in search of European recognition will motivate young hopefuls from 13 years old in the OK-Junior category as well as the professionals of KZ, some of whom have exceeded 40 years of age with the same motivation, without forgetting elite karting in line with the origins of the sport in OK and the pure amateurs in the best sense of the term, who compete in KZ2. We will see a beautiful image of karting today, a fascinating discipline that develops tomorrow's stars of motorsport while retaining its loyal followers for years.

The modern version of a legendary track, the current Horensbergdam site offers, throughout its 1360 m length, several technical difficulties of which the sequence of corners following the start is not the least. Genk will be very selective and the challenge for the drivers is no less important than that of their technicians. Spectators could extend well beyond the main grandstand to watch this great confrontation all around the circuit. A very positive sign is that the numbers are up from 2015 in all categories, the new OK having attracted its largest number of participants in an international competition since its recent creation.


Joyner and Basz side by side in OK

The lead of the CIK-FIA European Championship was taken by Briton Tom Joyner (Zanardi / TM Racing / Vega) at Portimao against the Pole Karol Basz (Kosmic / Vortex / Vega) who had led until then. Separated by only five points, both former World Champions will deliver a decisive battle at Genk. The young Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG / Parilla / Vega) is still close enough to join in the fight for the title. His compatriot Marta Garcia Lopez (Evokart / Parilla / Vega) and the American Logan Sargeant (FA Kart / Vortex / Vega) are still able to target the places of honour.


OK-Junior: Watt an uncertain leader

The CIK-FIA European Junior Championship is more open than it seems. Although the Dane Noah Watt (FA Kart / Vortex / Vega) has not left the lead since the first Competition at Zuera, his dominance has appeared to erode to the benefit of newcomers such as Spain's David Vidales (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega) and the Frenchman Victor Martins (Kosmic / Parilla / Vega), both previous winners. These Drivers are a bit far back, 9th and 8th respectively, to aim for the Championship, but they have helped to revive the title race and can again aim for victory at Genk. The Brazilian Caio Jotta Collet (BirelART / Parilla / Vega) is consequently up in 2nd place with a favourable score, which makes him one of the favourites for the Championship, ahead of the Swede Isac Blomqvist (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega). The Briton Finlay Kenneally (FA Kart / Vortex / Vega) and the Norwegian Dennis Hauger (CRG / Parilla / Vega) are meanwhile serious underdogs.


Three-way battle in KZ

Three very different Drivers are within only four points in the provisional classification of the CIK-FIA European KZ Championship. The supremacy of the Italian Marco Ardigo (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega) was challenged by the Czech Patrik Hajek (Kosmic / Vortex / Vega) in the second Competition, while the Frenchman Jérémy Iglesias (Sodi / TM Racing / Vega ) has taken 2nd place with impressive regularity. Ardigo still has the highest rating going into Genk, but a surprise is not ruled out. Behind this leading trio, two other Italians, additional team members, completed the top five: Paolo De Conto (CRG / Parilla / Vega) and Flavio Camponeschi (CRG / Parilla / Vega), the title holder.


KZ2: Federer slightly ahead of Pex

In the current classification of the CIK-FIA European KZ2 Championship, three points separate the leader Fabian Federer (CRG / Modena Engines / Vega) and his rival, the Dutchman Stan Pex (CRG / Vortex / Vega), while in 3rd place the Italian Alessandro Irlando (Energy / TM Racing / Vega) will have the less easy task of joining them to contest the title. It must be said that his compatriot Luca Corberi (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega), the winner at Essay and distanced in the Final at Adria, finds himself in a more favourable position in terms of dropped scores, despite his current 4th spot. Then there is another Italian, Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart / Vortex / Vega) showing up in 5th.

Pilot > Suleiman Zanfari

Although Portugal in the middle of July was undeniably holiday time, Suleiman Zanfari had not come to Braga to rest. The young Moroccan hopeful continued learning the business of a driver and his discovery of karting circuits around the world this weekend. This time he raced in the Portuguese Trophy in the Rotax Mini Max category. 2nd in the final standings of the category, he stunned most Portuguese present by assimilating the intricacies of their favourite track quickly.

At 11, Suleiman Zanfari has honed his experience as a young driver participating in a variety of karting competitions around the world. A week earlier, he faced the rigours of the Swedish climate and had a very interesting time in the Swedish Championship at the Kristianstad circuit watered by rain. It was a radical change of scenery in Portugal during the weekend of July 17th with temperatures exceeding 40 ° on the Kartodromo Internacional de Braga, scene of several European and World championships. Suleiman once again learned a very technical track in the Rotax Max Challenge Portugal. He also had to get used to a new brand of chassis and a new team in Birel ART Portugal. He enjoyed the opportunity for guidance from an experienced driver in the person of British champion Jordon Lennox-Lamb.

Pilote > Adam Eteki

Engagé dans le Championnat d'Allemagne DKM, Adam Eteki a profité du 3e meeting de la saison organisé à Genk pour se préparer à la dernière épreuve du Championnat d'Europe OK-Junior. L'épreuve s'est mal terminée par un accident en course 2, mais le pilote SG Drivers a eu l'occasion de démontrer une solide évolution parmi les 65 participants sur le circuit belge.

 

KSP_265_4098.JPG 

Désormais bien habitué aux épreuves internationales OK-Junior, Adam a fait preuve d'une bonne vitesse dans les manches ainsi que d'une meilleure maîtrise de sa stratégie de course. 19e au classement général des essais chronométrés, il remontait en 8e position à l'issue des manches qualificatives en terminant à chaque fois dans le top 5. Il confirmait ensuite pendant la course 1 après un excellent départ qui lui permettait de boucler le 1er tour à la 4e place. 5e jusqu'à la mi-parcours, il subissait ensuite une attaque groupée et franchissait la ligne d'arrivée en 9e position.

 

Adam évitait une nouvelle fois avec habileté les incidents du 1er virage dans la course 2 et pointait encore 4e à la fin du 1er tour. Comme en course 1, il semblait manquer un peu de vitesse pour tenir son rang dans le top 5. Il se faisait accrocher en pleine ligne droite dans le 5e tour et devait en rester là. Revenu malgré tout en 13e position au classement provisoire du Championnat d'Allemagne, Adam a surtout franchi une étape importante à Genk en alliant performance et fiabilité dans le peloton de tête, une expérience qui compte avant d'aborder le dernier rendez-vous du Championnat d'Europe.

Ils ont dit:

Dorian Boccolacci : « Pour de jeunes pilotes comme nous, c'est une véritable expérience à vivre et je remercie Renault Sport de cette opportunité. Cela nous montre ce qu'il faut accomplir dans l'espoir d'arriver en F1. Le professionnalisme est omniprésent et le pilotage n'est qu'une partie du travail aux côtés du marketing et des médias. Nous sommes encore jeunes, mais nous allons essayer de grandir pour atteindre un jour ce monde à part. Ce sera difficile, les places sont chères, mais cela donne envie de se donner pleinement pour y parvenir. »


Fred Vasseur, Team Manager Renault Sport Formula One Team : « Depuis des années, Renault travaille inlassablement sur la détection des jeunes pilotes. Dans ce sens, il est important de faire comprendre aux jeunes pilotes que le talent n'est qu'une donnée de l'équation et qu'il leur appartient de bâtir dès aujourd'hui un package complet. Le fait de faire venir certains parmi les plus prometteurs à voir les coulisses de la F1 leur permet ainsi de mieux cerner les attentes d'une équipe officielle, qu'il s'agisse du pilotage, de leur retour technique, de leur préparation physique, de leur aisance face aux médias et aux partenaires parmi tant d'autres. Ils peuvent ainsi prendre conscience des efforts à fournir pour avoir leur chance au plus haut niveau. »
