Season Finale for Parolin in Adria
The last race of the season, the WSK Final Cup in Adria, was a great success for Parolin Motorsport. There was complete domination and victory for Celenta in KZ2 followed by Travisanutto in 4th position, a double podium for Orlov and Khavalkin in Junior, 2nd place for Costoya in Mini and 4th place for van Langendonck.
“The weekend was very satisfying”, declared Marco Parolin. “Our drivers showed a remarkable level of performance in all three categories and six of them were able to obtain the results they deserved despite the intensity of the races. It is very rewarding for the whole team to end the season on such a positive note. We have a solid base to start 2022 with confidence. The development work will not stop and we are already looking forward to next year with great potential. It will be an exciting challenge. Of course, the year-end break will be welcome for everyone and it was important to end on a positive note.”
The WSK Final Cup brought together 275 drivers from more than 40 different nations at Adria Karting Raceway. Parolin Racing Kart was ranked 2nd among the manufacturers with 46 chassis in competition, of which almost 25% of the field was Mini. With four Parolin karts in the top eight of the Mini Final, two in the top four in KZ2, two in the top three in OK-Junior, the competitiveness of the productions of the Bassano del Grappa brand is not in debate.
