Despite winter conditions which were still harsh for the machines and men, the 23rd edition of the Winter Cup validated the positive dynamic that prevails this season within Birel ART Racing. Although failing to obtain all of the successes that were possible, the team has achieved many remarkable performances in several categories, starting with the top five for Pizzi in Junior.
Team Manager Davide Foré takes stock of this Winter Cup, where success was not always commensurate with the quality of equipment and drivers: “We are a racing team, it is above all the spirit of competition that drives us. We cannot rejoice when the results do not reward the work of the team, the drivers and technicians. However, the 2018 Winter Cup brought us a lot of satisfaction despite the very low temperatures and an often slippery track. It was very difficult to find the perfect balance in these reduced grip conditions. However, the performance of our chassis was very convincing in OK-Junior and KZ2, as Pizzi and Longhi showed. Our top driver in OK, Marijn Kremers, was taking part in another programme so we could not work with him as usual, but the 4th place for Oliver Hodgson, on a Birel ART with Team PFI, and the Final recovery of Coluccio showed that we were also on the right track. As far as engines are concerned, I thank Daldosso in KZ2.”
