In KZ, our goal with Rick Dreezen is to fight for the victory, as well as to score as many points as possible in the championship. In KZ2, Troy Loeskow makes his debut: he proved to be very competitive in Australia with Patrizicorse and, therefore, our goal is to achieve a place in the top 5. ”

We have everything in place to get a good result, but I have to try to improve my qualifying and this will be my main priority at the start of the weekend. I feel so much motivation and determination in the team and we are all hungry for success. I hope, therefore, to be able to give them some satisfaction. ”
Troy Loeskow #348: “I am very excited about my first European race in KZ2 with the support of the Ricciardo Kart factory team. Essay will represent a huge step compared to racing in Australia, but I hope to get quality results and learn from the experience.”
