7 Laghi Circuit Hosts a Decisive Round for the WSK Standings
190 drivers have invaded Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia – Italy) for the second appointment of the WSK Super Master Series: the international series of kart racing officially began today with the first qualifying session on the 7 Laghi international circuit. The category admitted to the race are four: KZ2, KF, KF Junior and 60 Mini. This round is crucial in the race towards Series, as regulations provide that the points awarded increase round after round. This is the reason why the current leaders are perfectly aware that their position is not as steady as they wish it was. At the moment, the four categories are led by the Italian Marco Ardigò (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega KZ2), the Polish Karol Basz (Kosmic-Vortex-Vega KF), the English Clement Novalak (Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega KFJ) and in 60 Mini, with the same points, the Italian Mattia Muller (Energy-TM-Vega) and Mattia Michelotto (Energy-Iame-Vega). There is an average of 50 drivers in each category, which means that the battle for the top positions is going to be as thrilling as ever. That’s why the appointment in Castelletto, at the facility set along the Bressana – Salice Terme county road, is unmissable. For those who won’t be able to enjoy the crucial phases of the race from the wide above-ground stand of the circuit, there is the WSK official website – wsk.it – where the live streaming of the race will be available on Sunday 22nd March, starting from 10.50 am.
