There are 114 drivers at Zuera for the second round of the 2014 European Championships and they have each run in three practice sessions of 20 minutes. Tyre management meant that the first sessions were much less popular, but everything was back to normal after that. The weather was quite favourable with a blue sky and a strong wind at midday.
In KF, Lando Norris (FA Kart / Vortex) set the fastest time of the day with 1’01” 257 or two tenths faster than Nicklas Nielsen (Kosmic / Vortex), closely followed by Karol Basz (Tony Kart / Vortex) by 3/100 and Nikita Mazepin (Tony Kart / Vortex). Felice Tiene (CRG / TM) was also very fast, slightly more than Callum Ilott (Zanardi / Parilla), while the Japanese driver Takuya Okada (ART GP / TM) posted an excellent seventh time ahead of Gabriel Aubry (Tony Kart / Vortex), Alessio Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM) and Tom Joyner (Zanardi / Parilla).
In KF-Junior, Leonardo Lorandi (Tony Kart / TM) proved the fastest with 1’02” 592, followed by Joshua Smith (ART GP / TM) and Ulysses De Pauw (Kosmic / Parilla). Enaam Ahmed (FA Kart / Vortex) set the fourth best time of the day, ahead of Rasmus Lindh (Praga / Parilla), Devlin DeFrancesco (Tony Kart / Vortex) 6th, Charles Milesi (Tony Kart / TM) 7th, the Spanish Marta Garcia Lopez (Zanardi / Parilla) 8th, Max Fewtrell (FA Kart / Vortex) 9th and David Beckmann (Tony Kart / Vortex) 10th.
There are three more free practice sessions of 20 minutes waiting for the drivers on Friday before the time trials begin at 4:40 p.m.
