A major player in international karting in FIA Karting, Champions of the Future and WSK, the Energy Corse team once again demonstrated its expertise during the two 2023 rounds of the WSK Final Cup. As well as being one of the best-represented chassis in the paddock, the Italian brand's colours shone brightly on the podiums. Double success in the Mini U10 and P2 in the X30 Junior at Lonato, followed by two further podiums at Franciacorta. Energy Corse finally placed three drivers in the top five of the Mini U10 Championship!
For Energy Corse, the WSK season ended at the Final Cup as it began at the end of January at the Champions Cup: on the podium. The year 2023 was decidedly fruitful in all categories, with Tomass Stolcermanis in both OK and KZ2, Danny Carenini in IAME and numerous drivers in Mini, one of the Italian team's specialities. Around Mick Panigada, the work of the technical staff led by Luigina Guerrini and Simone Sorio has once again borne fruit, as have the qualities of the Energy chassis.
Mini U10: Energy Corse, experts in training young drivers
Niccolo Perico came very close to the podium at the WSK Euro Series in Sarno at the beginning of November, and then climbed it again at the WSK Final Cup in Lonato. Leader at the end of the heats and winner of the Super Heat, the Italian led the Final from first to last lap with panache. Behind him, two other Energy Corse chassis put in an impressive performance: Greece's Jason Kosmopoulos (Cosmosrally Kart Academy) climbed to 2nd place, while Estonia's Mark Loomets took 4th place.
The event, held at South Garda Karting from 17th to 19th November, also included two IAME Brand Cup categories. In the X30 Junior class, the Swedish AD Motorsport team represented the Energy Corse colours brilliantly: Fred Saareks finished P2, Jonathan Landstrom P5, Deven Grabko P7 and Eddie Nilsson P11. A magnificent overall result and a hard-won podium!
Results confirmed at Franciacorta
Near Brescia, Perico, Loomets and Kosmopoulos confirmed their omnipresence at the front in the Mini U10 class with their Energy-TM package. Estonian Mark Loomets, who took pole position and won two heats, fought hard to take 2nd place, which enabled him to finish runner-up in the WSK Final Cup just ahead of Niccolo Perico. Unfortunately, the Italian crashed out on the final lap in the Super Heat and had to be content with 13th place on the grid for the Final, which he finished with a comeback in 7th place. As for Jason Kosmopoulos, he made a convincing 10-place recovery to return to P5, also finishing P5 in the series.
Brilliant performances in OK-Junior
The four Energy Corse drivers competing in OK-Junior had the opportunity to be among the finalists during this WSK Final Cup. Vladimir Ivannikov made some fine comebacks in the heats at Lonato. At Franciacorta, Murilho Da Rocha and Henry Domain both finished three heats in the top 10. As for Makar Savelev, he could be proud of his performance: P11 in the times out of 85 entries, P4-P5-P7-P6 in the heats, P10 in the Super Heat and P7 in the Final. Energy Corse congratulates them on their performance, as well as all the drivers who represented the Italian brand at the WSK Final Cup.
