Stopwatches had an intense working day today in Adria for the first competitive day of the WSK Super Master Series. As free practice have ended this morning, the 262 drivers present at the Adria Karting Raceway raised the bar testing the limits of their machinery since the beginning of qualifying, looking for the single lap performance. The presence success is also emphasized by the quality of the drivers, as a lot of strong racers will challenge each other and the very many rising stars on the Italian circuit.
A rich program, also behind screens on wsk.it.
A total of 42 countries are represented in Adria, and the corresponding drivers are all set to fight for a place on the podium and for the best shots during the live action captured by the cameras of the live streaming on the WSK Promotion media channels. The official webpage wsk.it and the facebook page of the Italian promoter will broadcast live the images of Prefinals and Finals starting from local 10:50 on Sunday February 4th.
