The third round of the WSK Euro Series is about to get underway at the International Circuit Napoli in Sarno. This event will be decisive to award the titles of all the four categories MINI, OKJ, OK, and KZ2. More than 250 drivers entered this challenge that announces to be particularly exciting, thanks also to the higher scoring coefficient compared to the races held in Lonato and Adria. In Sarno, a total of 153 points are up for grabs, which could potentially turn the current classifications around.
KZ2 is led by Marijn Kremers.
In KZ2 the current classification leader is the Dutch Marijn Kremers (BirelART Racing/BirelART-TM Racing), who scored 242 points winning the first two races. He is chased by the teammate and winner of the last edition of the series Riccardo Longhi at 159 points. The third and fourth place are currently occupied by the other two teammates Alessio Piccini and Giuseppe Palomba, that respectively scored 112 and 102 points so far, confirming the result of the final in Adria also in the standings.
WSK Euro Series KZ2 standings:
Marijn Kremers points 242;

Arvid Lindblad on top in OK.
In OK the British driver Arvid Lindblad (KR Motorsport/KR-Iame) confirmed to be in the lead after the double win claimed in Lonato and Adria, but despite being quite consistent, his advantage does not grant him the mathematical certainty of the victory on his very many rivals.
