Tony Kart Wins KZ2 International SuperCup with Matteo Vigano
On the Belgian circuit in Genk, the Tony Kart Racing Team conquered the bronze medal in the “World Championship”, raced in one-heat dedicated to the cadet class of shifter karts.
Within the FIA Karting World Championshipfor KZ, on the Belgian circuit, Matteo Viganò won the KZ2 International Supercup, a real “world championship” for the KZ2 category.
Also the high number of participants proved the importance of the event. There were actually over 100 drivers; with such a large entry list, each driver had to take part in 6 rounds.
From the beginning of the weekend, Matteo did his best, centering a pole position on Friday: this 52”411 smoothed his way for five victories and a third place in the qualifying heats. An incomparable series of results, which enabled him to reach the first position in the grid of the final race, where Viganò started perfectly. His talent and the performance of his Tony Kart Racer 401S powered by RKZ Vortex did the rest, allowing him to win, always keeping his opponents at a safe distance.
In confirmation of the excellent performance of the couple Tony Kart-Vortex, also David Vidales conquered the third position in the final. Starting from the qualifying heats, the Spanish driver seemed to be able to fight for the top positions. This was immediately confirmed also by the eighth position he gained out of 104 drivers, at the end of the heats.
Less luck for the other drivers of the Racing Team: despite the excellent recover in the qualifying heats, where he conquered a victory and a third place, Alessandro Giardelli did not manage to stand out in the final. Alessio Piccini, instead, was not able to gain the right reward for a weekend, where he played a leading role: his Tony Kart Racer 401S had a technical problem, making all his efforts fruitless during the eliminatory heats on Friday and Saturday.
Also our drivers who took part in the FIA Karting World Championship in the master class KZ were a little unlucky: since Marco Ardigò had to withdraw in advance due to family reasons, Simo Puhakka remained our only color-bearer in the race together with Noah Milell. Thanks to his fourth time in qualifying and two bronze medals in the eliminatory heats, the Finnish driver managed to conquer the fourth position in the grid for the final. He then started perfectly, managing to reach the second position in the first race lap. Unfortunately, he then had a crash at the last bend of the first race lap, forcing him to start in the backline. Also Noah Milell has a few difficulties, reaching the fifteenth position under the checkered flag.
The Tony Kart Racing Team is ready to face the FIA Karting World Championship for direct -drive karts, dedicated to the Senior and Junior categories on the Swedish circuit in Kristianstad during the weekend of 20th-23rdSeptember. Our Tony Kart Racer 401S in KZ version, instead, will be again engaged in the WSK Final Cup 2018, a series taking place on three different tracks: South Garda Karting in Lonato (18th-21stOctober), International Circuit 7 Laghi (8th-11thNovember) and Adria International Raceway (22nd-25thNovember).
