Rising Performance for Parolin at Sarno
Parolin Motorsport produced some very convincing performances at the second round of the European Championship last weekend at Sarno. In KZ, Francesco Celenta confirmed the very positive progress made after Zuera, finishing in the top three in the qualifying heats and confirming his position in Super Heat. He was sixth in the final but had to retire due to a technical problem. Lorenzo Travisanutto proved to be competitive right from the start of the meeting with his fourth place in qualifying. He stayed the course in the heats and fought valiantly to finish eighth in the final, a result that allowed him to enter the Top-10 in the championship (P9).
This positive development was also reflected in KZ2 within the Modena Kart ASD satellite team, which runs this category in close collaboration with Parolin Motorsport. Genis Civico offered a solid performance, consistently placing among the first four in the qualifying heats and eighth on the starting grid of the final. After a tricky first lap, he progressed with each lap to finish seventh and consolidate ninth place in the championship. Maksim Orlov performed at the highest level after his fourth place in qualifying. He won two heats and took three second places in the heats to win his Super Heat. Optimism was in order on the front row on the starting line of the final. Maksim lost a few positions in the early laps and managed to recover to eighth position. Unfortunately, his result was later cancelled by a disqualification for causing an accident.
“The results should have been much more positive without the setbacks of the finals,” said Marco Parolin. “But the fact remains that we managed to increase the level of competitiveness of our Parolin/TM karts in both KZ and KZ2. Our development programme continues to evolve satisfactorily and the collaboration with Modena Kart ASD is excellent. We will now focus on the forthcoming European OK and Junior Championships before preparing for the next two world events.”
