First Results in Zuera: Tomorrow the Winners
It was an eventful racing day in Zuera (Spain), with 14 races during the afternoon and tough racing condition because of the wind which blew incessantly over the 1,700 metres of the Spanish track. The OK and OKJ were at their debut in a CIK-FIA European Championship. Among drivers coming from 31 different countries, young promises drove alongside with the more experienced champions of the KZ. Tomorrow the grand finale will be broadcast live in streaming on cikfia.tv and cikfiachampionship.com, starting at 10:15am with the drivers’ parade.
