Fabian Federer had to retire from the Final of the KZ2 European Championship after hitting several technical problems connected to the very high temperatures. The next round on track for Maranello Kart is WSK Euro Series in Lonato next June 23rd.
Maranello Kart confirmed its participation in KZ at the second and closing round of the European Championship, race that took place at the International Circuit Napoli in Sarno (Salerno, Italy), through SRP Racing Team and its driver Fabian Federer – two times KZ2 European Champion in 2011 and 2016 and third last year in KZ at the World and European Championships
Following the positive performance in Wackersdorf – a ninth place with a spectacular 13 place comeback – Federer had several carburation issues since qualifying this time around but managed to pull a good ninth time overall being 0.2s off the pace of the leader. The very high temperatures made Federer experience these problems also in the heats and he could not improve his performance. He eventually had to retire from the Final after holding P5. This was a pity as Federer could have been among the main protagonists of the weekend in Sarno.
