On his homesoil Alex Irlando challenges a strong field in OK and takes home a 12th, proving, once again, to be a complete driver. Back at home, back with direct drive karts: the WSK Super Master Series weekend held at Kartodromo La Conca has been a positive one for Alex Irlando.
The Apulian ace debutted with the direct drive BirelART-TM kart stopping the 10th chrono in qualifying out of 38 drivers. Throughout heats, Alex kept floating around top ten finishing 8th and 11th and resulting 12th overall after the qualification races. In the Prefinal B, Alex started on grid 6 and lost two positions under the chequered flag, cutting the finishing line in 8th position. On Sunday afternoon, starting from P15, Alex made his way up to the 12th position.
“The direct drive class is a sport on his own, but for me racing against these drivers is very challenging! I really had a lot of fun battling with those blokes and the kart was absolutely good: the guys from TM Racing found an amazing configuration and the engine was a rocket! I just need to adapt the chassis to my driving style and spend more time on it. We’ll intensify our testing session with the direct drive in order to develop it as much as we can before the CIK-FIA competitions. As usual, I’d like to thanks my team, TM Racing and all the other people who supported me on my homesoil this weekend. See you in Sarno!”
Here are the results of the race.
The next round will be in Sarno, Napoli (Italy) from March 21st to 24th for the fourth and last event of the series.
