The Racing Teams are back on the Circuito Internacional de Zuera, where the FIA Karting season will be finally starting with the first of the three appointments for the OK and OKJ categories, starting on the weekend of July 30th – August 2nd.
On this occasion, Tony Kart team will line-up 9 drivers in total, ready to fight for top positions at the wheel of the Tony Kart 401 R powered by Vortex, after the great work carried out by the Racing Team during the first part of the season.
As for the line-up in the Senior category, Pedro Hiltbrand will be the one called to do the honors. The Spaniard, competitive since the first appointments of the season, actually returns from a short stop to recover from injury, but can still count on the experience gained in the previous appointment by an always brilliant Joseph Turney and a growing and integrated Lorenzo Travisanutto.
In OKJ, the Tony Kart standard-bearers will be six, all chasing the greatest result even in the FIA Karting review after making a great deal of progress throughout these months. Starting with Karol Pasiewicz, protagonist of a brilliant comeback here in Zuera, and Tuukka Taponen, with Tony Kart only for three races but already on the podium on one occasion. On the track, also Bruno Del Pino and Aiden Neate will be present. The latter, right in Zuera about a week ago, proved to be competitive by fighting in the top positions of the ranking up to winning the 5th place in Prefinal, while Maxim Rehm and Harley Keeble are ready to make up after the accidents that two weeks ago prevented them from fighting for the positions they deserved.
The drivers of the Kosmic Kart Racing Department are also ready to fight at the Circuito Internacional de Zuera with the Kosmic Mercury R - Vortex duo.
The Kosmic Kart Racing Department line-up will count 4 drivers, starting with Luigi Coluccio, wearing Kosmic Kart colors in OK. He also had the chance to race on the track in Zuera two weeks ago, even though some race events influenced the final result of a weekend started off on the right foot. In any case, Coluccio is starting after gaining a great experience, allowing him to race a first round at top levels.
Alexander Gubenko will be our standard-bearer in OKJ, able to reach the very first positions of the category several times this year. On the track with him also Ean Eyckmans, constantly growing in the last few races and after recovering from injury at the beginning of the season, and Axel Malja, back to our tent right in Zuera two weeks ago.
The Exprit Racing Team led by Patrik Hajek will be making its debut in an FIA Karting event in its first year of activity. But the three rounds of the championship will be an important challenge for our drivers too, called to make the most of the Exprit Noesis R chassis powered by Vortex, as they will compete in a lineup with 95 registered drivers in OKJ and 88 in OK in this first round on the Circuito Internacional de Zuera
On this occasion, the line-up of the Exprit Racing Team will be made up of 9 drivers. Four will be at the start of the OK category where Charlie Wurz will join again, after returning from the injury had over three weeks ago and determined to again reach the top competitive levels of the beginning of the year. At his side also Kajus Siksnelis, who will try to find a continuity in his results together with the speed he already proved to be able to reach in the last few race meetings. Toni Kayla Naude and Alexandru Iancu complete the line-up of the Seniors, ready to make the most of the experience gained in Zuera two weeks ago.
In OKJ they will line up 5 drivers, the Frenchman Arthur Rogeon brilliantly stood out in the last two appointments with the team, proving to be highly competitive as well as Luka Sammalisto. Oscar Wurz will try to redeem himself from the unlucky races he took part in recently, while Guillermo Delgado will try to repeat the good results he obtained in his first race with them last week. The Finn Aleksi Jalava, finally, will make his debut within their team in Zuera this weekend.
