After a highly successful 2019 season – whose highlights included Emilien Denner’s victory at the FIA Karting International Super Cup, Bas Lammers winning the WSK Super Master Series championship, Anthony Abbasse’s victory in the Winter Cup and victory in Le Mans 24-hour race, Sodikart has opted to bolster its international ambitions and raise its profile on the world karting competition stage.
A new chapter for Anthony Abbasse
In 2020, you will no longer see Anthony on the major international circuits. Anthony has decided to take a different path with a change of career. Sodikart has had a very close relationship with Anthony for many years, and of course, supports Anthony in this new adventure.
Official drivers and satellite team
In the KZ category, Adrien Renaudin – Sodikart’s young and talented new driver – will have a racing schedule focused mainly on FIA Karting trials with the European Champion and World Champion titles insight, in addition to some WSK Promotion competitions. Bas Lammers, meanwhile, will boost the French team’s chances of victory in all international FIA Karting competitions.
In great news for 2020, Bas Lammers will also join the Sodikart team as ‘Sodi Racing Ambassador’. This new role is a perfect match for the Dutch multiple world champion’s profile and personality. Bas’s main task will be to develop and qualify the network of ‘Sodi Racing’ professionals and retailers internationally.
In the OK-Junior (OK-J) category, Jean-Philippe Guignet’s Trèfle Racing team will continue to take care of the next generation’s rising stars on Sodikart’s behalf. Evan Giltaire and William Macintyre will be the promising young drivers supported by the Sodikart factory. Powered by TM Racing, with engines tuned by Cédric Sport Motors, the young drivers will follow a comprehensive and intense programme to achieve success in the most challenging major international races.
Paul Bizalion’s CPB Sport team will once again be flying the flag for Sodikart in KZ2. The team that led Emilien Denner to victory in the 2019 FIA Karting International Super Cup will continue its strategy of performance and openness, with a highly international squad. For this new season, Kévin Petit – former telemetry technician and a longstanding partner within the Sodikart official team – is being ‘promoted’ to become the new team manager of the CPB Sport team. Several tuners will be involved in the TM engine assembly for all the team’s drivers. The programme will also be European and international, in addition to WSK and major races in France.
Now recognised as a dynamic and high-performance competition manufacturer, Sodikart continues its momentum and once again confirms its determination to shine at the highest level of international competition.
