European CIK-FIA Championship KF/KFJ Arrives in Spain
International karting is going to arrive in Zuera (E) for the second round of the European CIK-FIA KF and KFJ Championships. Not even a month ago, the season opener took place in Muro Leccese (Lecce – Italy); this time there are 145 drivers eager to challenge each other. The number of entrants confirms the huge success that the event had already achieved in Italy. The race will be hosted by the 1,700 metre long track in the heart of Aragon, near the town of Zuera in the province of Zaragoza.
