Energy Corse confirms its competitiveness with another success at Franciacorta

A particularly well-represented brand in WSK Promotion events, Energy Corse is also a benchmark karting team with a string of successes year after year and race after race. A brilliant winner of the Mini 60 U10 Final at Franciacorta, Italian Niccolo Perico is the new leader of the WSK Super Master Series. A Final race incident prevented his team-mate Mark Loomets from joining him on the podium. Energy Corse was also very competitive in OK-Junior, as Henry Domain showed by climbing back into the top six.

Once again, the Franciacorta circuit in northern Italy was the venue for a meeting with an extremely high standard and a very large field (389 drivers entered). The WSK Super Master Series once again proved its worth, and the Energy Corse team left nothing to chance to support its drivers to the top and help them achieve their objectives. The result has been some excellent results for the Italian outfit, who have every intention of continuing their work with the aim of achieving further success in 2024...

Niccolo Perico to fight for the title at Sarno
Winner of the WSK Champions Cup in January, Niccolo Perico impressed by returning to 5th on the grid for the Final, despite having only set the 46th fastest time in Timed Practice when he was held up in traffic! Moreover, his fastest time in Saturday's warm-up and his victory in the Super Heat confirmed his very high level of performance. The young and talented Italian continued his efforts in the Final and won brilliantly. Just as fast throughout the weekend, Estonian Mark Loomets was running in 3rd position on the final lap, when a race incident forced him to retire with much regret.

All Energy Corse drivers qualify for the U10 Final 
In addition to Perico, six other Energy Corse drivers reached the Final: Danil Verba P12, Platon Kovtunenko P15 (+9), Andrea Iannone P16 (+12), Jan Gardzielik P17, Hudson Petta P18 and Vsevolod Boronin P26. In the provisional series standings, Perrico is in 1st place with one race to go (Sarno at the beginning of March).

Henry Domain in the top six in OK-Junior
Coming from OK-Junior, Stepan Antonov continues to make great strides in OK, as demonstrated by his rise from 18th to 9th place in his Super Heat, which enabled him to secure his place in the Final despite a collision in one heat.

In OK-Junior, the Energy Corse-TM Kart teams were able to count on some very promising young drivers. Already P8 in the two races held at Lonato at the start of the season, Great Britain's Henry Domain further improved on those results with a 6th place in the Final. P4-P2-P3-P3-P3 in the heats, then P3 in the Super Heat, he finished his brilliant clear round in 6th position in the Final.

Makar Savelev, Aloïs Girardet, and Vladimir Ivannikov are also among the drivers who go from strength to strength at each meeting. They finished 21st, 22nd, and 27th respectively after extremely encouraging heats, often in the top 10. Ivannikov even crossed the finish ahead of his two team-mates, before being demoted due to a penalty (spoiler).

IAME podium in Lonato
A few kilometers from Franciacorta, the Lonato circuit hosted the IAME Italy Open. In the X30 Junior class, Sweden's Jonathan Landstrom set the fastest time in his group in Qualifying, before taking 3rd place on the podium with the AD Motorsport team.
