Parolin Double Runner-Up in Franciacorta
The high point of the season, the 2023 FIA OK and Junior World Karting Championship lived up to its promise in terms of difficulty and selectivity. With over 100 drivers in each category, the challenge was worthy of the event. Parolin Motorsport demonstrated its top-class competitiveness by regularly battling for victory. Rene Lammers in OK and Christian Costoya in OK-Junior both managed to finish 2nd in this formidable competition.
“The Franciacorta weekend was extremely long and complicated,” explained Marco Parolin. “The record number of participants in each category meant that there were many Qualifying Heats, which demanded a sustained effort from the team. In the end, we managed to come close to glory in both categories. We were really hoping for victory, but I can’t hide my satisfaction with these two superb 2nd places. It’s a great reward for the exceptional work of Christian and René, and of course for all those who worked hard to achieve it – with a special mention for Franco Drudi and Gordon Finlayson. We now look forward to the end of the season with confidence, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
