Pilote > Gabriel Aubry

KSP-Gabriel-Aubry.jpg

 

Bien qu'il ait maintenant tourné la page de sa carrière en karting, Gabriel n'a pas tourné le dos à la discipline qui lui a offert tant de satisfactions. Il a ainsi profité d'un court break dans son planning d'entraînement pour faire le déplacement jusqu'à La Conca pendant la WSK Champions Cup, en compagnie de l'équipe KSP-Kartcom. C'était d'abord pour lui l'occasion de revoir ses amis pilotes et de saluer l'équipe qui a si bien accompagné sa progression en 2014 : le Tony Kart Racing Team.

 

« C'est très différent de venir sur une épreuve sans piloter. » confiait-il. « Le voyage est beaucoup plus décontracté. D'habitude, je pense déjà à la course en montant dans l'avion. Etant donné qu'il a pas mal plu, je n'étais pas spécialement frustré de ne pas rouler dans ces conditions que j'apprécie moyennement. Si j'en ai la possibilité, je participerais volontiers à une compétition importante en karting cette année encore. Je suis venu pour retrouver l'ambiance de la course et les gens que je n'avais pas vu de l'hiver. Sur la piste, j'ai noté la domination de Nielsen en KF jusqu'à son regrettable problème au restart de la finale, et celle de Lundgaard en KF-Junior. Les nouveaux spoilers ont permis le déroulement de courses plus sereines, même si cela a compliqué la tâche lors des dépassements sous la pluie. J'ai vu beaucoup de pilotes couper franchement la piste sur le mouillé et pas autant de sanctions. »

Le regard d'un pilote expérimenté apporte toujours un plus dans la compréhension fine d'une épreuve et les remarques avisées de Gabi ont été grandement appréciées sur ce plan, tandis que son sens de l'humour particulier a égayé le week-end. Après cette courte parenthèse, Gabi a retrouvé son entrainement d'avant saison à base de longues et fréquentes séances sur un simulateur de course à pied. Pour lui, la compétition démarrera vraiment en avril lors de la 1ère épreuve du Championnat de France de F4 à Lédenon.

International > BNL Karting Series

BNL-kick-off-2015.jpg

 

The BNL Karting series introduced last year a Kick Off to start the new season. They attracted 120 drivers from 12 different nations for a one-day race. Thanks to the sun, the great atmosphere and the huge amount of drivers it was a great start.

And now, it looks that this year BNL Kick Off won't be different as last year. The ingredients of the Kick Off are easy: a one-day race to test the new material, to learn to know their competitors and to race on one of Europe's best tracks: Genk. Combine this with a lot of prices and you get a nice race.

 

This year the organisation of the BNL Karting Series will organize the BNL Kick Off at Sunday 15 March. There are 6 classes allowed in the International race: Micro Max, Mini Max, Junior Max, Senior Max and DD2/DD2 Masters.


Last Thursday they have started the subscriptions and after 5 days they received over 90 subscriptions.

The Junior Class is traditionally the class which is first full and now they have only 6 places left.
In all the other classes the entries are going good. But make sure you are on time with your reservation. 

And we're not surprised with the result. Last year they had so many prices for the Kick Off and the BNL Karting Series. We've spoken with the BNL organiser what his plans are for this year:


"Our biggest change towards last year is our deal with Kart-Data. They will cover all our races including the Kick Off. Big Brother will be watching all drivers and this gives us the possibility to improve our race quality!


And of course we will continue with all our prices. Thanks to our partners we can offer a lot of prices. In the Kick Off we're giving away: 1 Bell helmet, 6 suits by MIR, 2 sets of tyres, 6 tyre pressures from Alfano, free undershirts for all drivers, free magazines, redbull cans and a free season for the winner of each class
.

And then we have still the BNL Karting Series... It's insane how many prices we're giving away and I've done an estimation of the total value and that's around 35 000 €...  A small summary of some prices: 6 suits from MIR, 18 clocks of Alfano, 500 free t-shirts, 6 complete Rotax Engines, 4 helmets of bell and 8 sets of tyres.

Pilote > Milane Petelet

KSP-WSK-La-Conca-Milan-Pettelet.jpg

 

Rentrer dans la grand bain de la compétition internationale à 12 ans, en sortant directement de la catégorie Minime, est un sacré challenge. Le moins qu'on puisse dire, c'est que Milane Pételet s'est bien débrouillé le week-end dernier à La Conca pendant l'épreuve d'ouverture de la WSK Champions Cup. Pourtant les conditions de piste n'étaient guère favorables et la découverte pour tous les pilotes KF-Junior de la nouvelle fixation de spoiler "éjectable" homologuée cette année a encore compliqué la donne.

 

Au volant de son Kosmic/Parilla du team VDK Racing, Milane s'est progressivement habitué au tracé italien, sur le sec comme sous la pluie. Ses performances se sont bien améliorées au fil des manches, mais son spoiler n'a pas suivi le rythme et il a dû repasser plusieurs fois par le stand pour le remettre en place. Gagner sa qualification pour la finale ressemblait alors à une mission impossible cette fois, d'autant qu'il a été contraint de renoncer au cours de sa préfinale.

Pourtant, Milane a déjà démontré de belles qualités pour un complet rookie dans cette catégorie. Il semblait d'ailleurs plutôt satisfait d'avoir fait ses débuts en compétition internationale de la sorte. Visiblement, le KF-Junior lui convient et lui plait. Le temps de remplir ses obligations vis-à-vis du Programme 10-15 de la FFSA, et il sera de nouveau prêt à reprendre le volant pour la 2e épreuve de la WSK Champions Cup dès ce week-end.

A year of success for One Engines

The tuner One Engines contributed to the many Drivers' victories in 2014 by producing particularly efficient Vortex engines. In addition to the World Championship for Lando Norris in KF and Enaam Ahmed in KF-Junior, who also won the European Championship for KF-Junior using it. The young Dane, 31, Ole Haugård, the founder of One Engines, enjoys a well-deserved reputation for excellence in the sport.

 

KSP-Ole-Haugard.jpg

 

How did you become a kart engine tuner?

- I began by preparing engines for my brother Rasmus Haugård, a very good driver in Formula A until 2004. When he stopped his career, I started to work for myself, first in Sweden, then with the Tony Kart Junior Team and then with Ricky Flynn Motorsport since 2010. The collaboration with RFM gives me very good conditions to test and develop the engines with its many fast drivers.

 

What is the secret of your success?

- In the field of engines, it is no secret: only work and determination can lead to victory over the long term. As a private tuner, I do not have the same facilities as the factories who can make changes during the season. I start on the engines early in the year and I compensate with meticulous assembly of the different pieces to produce efficient units throughout the year. Once I have made my technical choice, I use machinery to exactly reproduce my improvements on all of the engines that I prepare. This allows me to have sixty engines with very similar performance.

 

What is the most difficult aspect of your business?

- Human relationships with some teams and some parents are sometimes complicated. When a driver fails, it is tempting to blame the tuner or the engine and give in to jealousy. I know my engines perfectly. In case of a complaint by a driver, I can offer him another engine, but he must then use it, I will not exchange twice. Good collaboration is primarily based on trust.

 

How do you see the future of racing engines?

- First of all, we must say that the current KF engines are very good products that suffer from a bad reputation. They are very reliable and not as expensive as people say. I am enthusiastic about what is being prepared for the 2016 homologation which should see the elimination of the weaknesses of the current KF: clutch, starter, wiring harness and battery. The only subject that concerns me is the choice of carburettors. The float bowl models will be a problem for small teams and private drivers. They will have a lot of jets and will need a lot of experience to choose the right settings. Once the race starts, there will be no way to correct the situation as there is with the diaphragm carburettors with an adjuster screw.

KSP-Angelo-Parrilla.jpg

 

The Parrilla family, who have played a leading role in the history of karting for 55 years, were awarded a special CIK-FIA Trophy "in honour of their long and outstanding contribution", presented to Angelo Parrilla at the CIK-FIA Prizegiving ceremony in Milan, on Saturday, January 24th, 2015.

 

It is thanks to Giovanni Parrilla's passion that karting, a sport he got to know while visting a distributorship in Arizona USA back in 1957, that kart engine design moved on from the industrial type to custom made racing engines. Success followed almost immediately in Italy, in Europe and the rest of the World. His two sons Angelo and Achille then took over to create some of the most beautiful pages in the history of the discipline.

 

The PB7 - the first Italian kart engine - and the Greyhound chassis, through a long series of CIK-FIA World Champion titles, the first awarded to Guido Sala in 1964, and famous names like Terry Fullerton and Ayrton Senna among many other champions ... all have this in common: Parrilla! A name without which the karting would probably not be so successful and whose flag proudly continues to wave over our sport (although today with a single R). They deserved a grateful tribute by the CIK-FIA.
