Freddie Slater wins in Adria, Ean Eyckmans accelerates his pace

The Kosmic Mercury R chassis leads the OKJ class on the occasion of the second event of the WSK Open Cup. Freddie Slater is the fastest driver in the Friday’s qualifyings and after a perfect race, he wins the final.

Another excellent performance for Kosmic Kart arrives on the occasion of the second round of the WSK Open Cup at the Adria Karting Raceway.  Kosmic Mercury R wins everything possible win with Freddie Slater, in pole position on Friday and first on the finishing line of the final in OKJ class. The Kosmic Racing Department achieves the Top 5 in the same category, with the unfailing support of Vortex Engines and its DJT engines. Space also for some interesting results in OK, here with the DST engines of Vortex.

In OKJ class, Ean Eyckmans, after a difficult start in the eliminatory and qualifying heats, clearly accelerates his pace on Sunday when he gains 6 positions in the pre-final and moves into the Top 5 in the final. At the top of the ranking of the most important race of the weekend, we find another Kosmic Mercury R powered by Vortex DJT. It is driven by the Briton Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport), the real star of the category: pole position, five victories out of five eliminatory heats (and one fast lap), win and best lap in the pre-final are the results he obtains before the final. The European champion makes no mistakes even in the race that counts, dominating the race, a result that gives him the third place in the championship.

Menyhért Krózser starts for the second time with their official colours and, despite several comebacks between qualifying heats and prefinal, he does not reach a position which does not allow him to proceed towards the final.

In OK, Liu Ruiqi starts the weekend in a crescendo and improves from heat to heat, until he qualifies for the final. The last race of the weekend is stopped due to an accident in the early laps, but their Chinese driver does not lose his concentration and, when the green flag comes out, he climbs 11 positions and almost reaches the Top 20. Menyhért Krózser debuts in the master class of single speed karts and immediately celebrates his access to the final, at the first attempt.

The Kosmic Racing Department goes back on break again, before going on track at the end of the month. On the Spanish circuit of Campillos, the FIA Karting World Championship will take place (October 28th – 31st) for the OK and OKJ classes.
