Birel ART in Valencia: Top five for Morgatto in the European OK Championship

Following on from Birel ART's excellent performances in OK since the start of the season, Matheus Morgatto - CL Racing Team took 5th place in the standings at the end of the first round of the European Championship in Valencia, Spain. Noah Wolfe - VAR by Birel concluded with a strong Final climb of 11 places, while Ean Eyckmans - Birel ART Racing qualified in 5th position for the Final.

"The competitiveness of our TM Kart-powered Birel ART chassis enabled several of our drivers to shine in Valencia," said Jordon Lennox, OK Team Manager of Birel ART Racing. "Matheus Morgatto put in his best performance of the year in the colours of CL Racing Kart, while Noah Wolfe - VAR by Birel achieved some very encouraging results despite a number of setbacks. Ean Eyckmans was well on his way to fighting for the lead again, but the Final didn't go his way, nor did Mees Houben, who had shown a good level right up to his Super Heat. Ludovico Busso progressed well despite several incidents. It's been an eventful weekend for our OK-Junior drivers, who were showing convincing speed at the start of the meeting. We can now look forward with confidence to the 2nd European event and the Champions of the Future Euro Series which precedes it on the Val d'Argenton circuit in France.”
