International > CIK-FIA



114 drivers are at Zuera for the second round of the European KF and KF-Junior Championships, from 134 during the first round at La Conca. 22 competitors are not here in Spain, but there are two new drivers entered for the race. There are different specific reasons for this drop of about 15%. The simultaneous running of the Rotax Euro Challenge at Castelletto justifies the absence of Guan Yu Zhou and Rinus van Kalmthout, Adrian Munoz has not recovered from his accident at La Conca, and school reasons in this exam period have also been cited. But nobody is fooled ... The high cost of international competition limits access to most drivers, which is not new.

Equipment or team changes were allowed at Zuera. An undisputed specialist in the exercise, David Beckmann is driving a Tony Kart / Parilla in his own tent this time, close to Keijzer Racing. Sophia Floersch is now driving a FA Kart / Vortex at the Emilia Kart team, Kush Maini has joined RB Kart Technology on an Exprit / Vortex. Austrian Simon Reicher has entered the round with an FA Kart / Vortex with MM Racing Kart. KF, Kevin Rossel is using a Vortex in Spain instead of his usual TM and Egor Stupenkov has joined Forza Racing at the wheel of a Tony Kart / TM.
