The official WSK calendar has just been unveiled, and it will soon be the turn of the Italian ACI Karting Championship and the Italian Zone Cup calendar. Positive comments from Raffaele Giammaria and Luca De Donno for this new reality proposed by the Italian Federation and the FIA Karting.
The two new categories OK-N and OK-NJ are starting to take shape with the first official entries in the form of a championship for next season, after the first positive tests organised by ACI Sport in collaboration with the FIA Karting, and the recent publication of the 2023 technical regulations.
A first race calendar which for 2023 has already announced the presence of the two new categories is the one recently issued by WSK Promotion, which has immediately joined the project of ACI Sport and FIA Karting OK-N and OK-NJ with a programme for OK-N and OK-NJ articulated in the four rounds of the WSK Super Master Series, in the two rounds of the WSK Euro Series and in the second round of the WSK Final Cup.
This is the comment by Raffaele Giammaria, President of the ACI Sport Karting Commission: “I’m very pleased that a prestigious Series like the WSK has decided to include in its racing programme, for the 2023 season, the OK-N and OK-NJ categories. ACI Sport and the Karting Commission have immediately embraced the OK-N project launched by the FIA Karting and aimed at guaranteeing drivers a performing, reliable and accessible product, and they have worked in close synergy with each other to draw up very quickly the Technical Regulations also for the Junior version. The introduction in the main WSK Series will give further prominence to these two categories which will also run, as already announced, in the Italian ACI Karting Championship and in the Italian Zone Cup“.
Luca De Donno, President of WSK Promotion, is also satisfied with the programme concerning the two new federal categories. This is his comment: “I have included the new OKN-J and OK-N categories in our WSK series, because I think they are an important opportunity for drivers to compete in these two national categories before making the jump to the higher categories. It will also be important for the teams, who will have the chance to have two more categories to manage in order to meet the needs of an even wider target of drivers. I want to thank our Federation and in particular the President of the Karting Commission, Raffaele Giammaria, with whom we have collaborated on this project, and I am sure that we could have excellent results as early as 2023.”
