Tony Kart Racing Team: 2023 Drivers and Races

The official sporting programme for the new season has been completed, with
20 drivers lined up in the MINI, OKJ, OK and KZ/KZ2 categories, in the main
international competitions.

We are just a few weeks away from the start of a new and intense
international racing season. Our Tony Kart Racing Team is ready for the 2023
challenge, with the aim of repeating the successes it is used to achieve and
that in the last few years became true with the victory of the FIA Karting
World Championship in OKJ, in 2022, and the double success in KZ and OK
classes, in 2021.

Our team has to face this year a calendar full of appointments, set up on
the traditional races promoted by the FIA Karting, RGMMC and WSK Promotion.
An intense sporting programme that, obviously, will be faced counting on the
reliability of our Tony Kart Racer 401 RR (for KZ/KZ2, OK and OKJ
categories) and Tony Kart Rookie (for the MINI), powered by the Vortex
engines, the OTK Kart Group’s Engine Division.

In KZ/KZ2, our sporting department will be led by Noah Milell, already World
Champion in 2021, joined – as in last year’s races – by Tom Leuillet,
European KZ2 Champion in force. Confirmed are also the Luyet brothers, Jean
and Samuel, as well as the young Norton Andreasson, in his second full
season in the shifter class.

In OK, the vice-champion of the Champions of the Future Euro Series Luigi
Coluccio will again find James Egozi and Jakub Rajski at his side. Jan
Przyrowski, already winner of the OKJ title in the WSK Euro Series and third
classified at the FIA Karting World Championship, will this year face his
first full season in the Senior category. After having competed a few rounds
in 2022 in our official colours, Sebastiano Pavan will be part of our
full-time racing team, together with new-entry Arthur Poulain. Finally, Zoe
Florescu Potolea joins our team as part of the Junior Girls on Track –
Rising Stars programme, in collaboration with the FIA Women in Motorsport
Commission and Ferrari Driver Academy.

In OKJ, Alp Hasan Aksoy is getting ready to defend our colours for the
second year, together with two new entries: Kirill Dzitiev, WSK Super Master
Series vice-champion in force, and the Davide Bottaro – Scott Kin Lindblom
duo, who both switched to the Junior class in the second half of the 2022
season.

More drivers lined up by our Racing Team in the MINI. Ludovico Mazzola,
already with the team last year in the last events of the season, will be
employed full-time for 2023, together with Ilie Tristan Crisan, Sebastian
Eskandari-Marandi and Andrea Manni.

The 2023 season will start in Lonato del Garda (February 2nd – 5th) on the
occasion of the first round of the WSK Super Master Series.
