The closing race of the WSK Final Cup is at the start in Franciacorta with 342 drivers on track

Qualifying practice and the initial heats of the weekend will be on Friday, November 24th. Additional heats will follow on Saturday, while the Prefinals and Finals will enjoy Live Streaming on TV on Sunday, November 26th.

After last week's first round in Lonato, the second and final round of the WSK Final Cup is set to begin at Franciacorta Karting Track. This race also marks the conclusion of the 18th season of WSK Promotion. Once again, a large number of drivers, a total of 342 after Friday's sporting scrutineering, will be competing for category titles in MINI, OKJ, OK and KZ2. Additionally, the two federal categories of OKN and OKNJ will be vying for the title in a single event at Franciacorta.

 

Surprises are possible in all categories. The current classification leaders.

In each category, the title fight remains uncertain, partly due to the unique rules of this second round, which awards a higher score than the first round. A total of 153 points are up for grabs for the winner of heats, the Prefinal and the Final. After the first round in Lonato, the current leaders are: in KZ2, Matteo Zanchi (#52 Zanchi Motorsport/CRG-TM Kart-LeCont) with 79 points; in OK, Dmitry Matveev (#204 KR Motorsport/KR-Iame-LeCont) with 89 points; in OK-Junior, Sebastian Lehtimaki (#311 Tony Kart Racing Team/Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) with 89 points; in MINI Gr.3, the Italian Cristian Blandino (#622 CRG Racing Team/CRG-TM Kart-Vega) with 79 points; and in MINI Gr.3 Under 10, another Italian, Niccolò Perico (#557 Energy Corse/Energy-TM Kart-Vega) with 90 points.
