The closer of the WSK Super Master Series in Sarno

The fourth and final round of the WSK Super Master Series is going to take place at the International Circuit Napoli in Sarno, from February 27th to March 2nd. The event is promising a spectacular conclusion to the 2024 championship. So far, the competition has been intense in the MINI Gr.3, MINI U10, OKJ, OK, OKNJ, and KZ2 categories. The final phase of this series will be held on Saturday, March 2nd, with the Prefinals and Finals determining the category champions.

 

153 points up for grabs in Sarno.

In the first three rounds in Lonato, Cremona and Franciacorta, the battles for victory have showcased many champions. However, nothing is certain, and Sarno is expected to deliver duels until the last meter, with plenty of uncertainty for the final championship results. This is amplified by the incremental scoring in this final round, with a total of 153 points at stake: 13 points for the first position after the heats, 60 points for the Prefinal victory, and 80 points for the success in the Final. Unexpected twists and turns are not excluded at this moment.

 

MINI GR.3 - Calleja leads Miron and Blandino.

The Australian William Calleja (#516 BabyRace/Parolin-Iame) is leading the standings in MINI Gr.3  with 241 points, followed by the Spaniard Daniel Miron Lorente (#501 Team Driver/KR-Iame-Vega) with 231 and the Italian Cristian Blandino (#550 Kalì-Kart Racing/TGroup-TM Kart-Vega) with 212. In the three rounds contested so far, Blandino won in Lonato, Calleja in Cremona, and Miron in Franciacorta. Three drivers representing three different teams, making the final victory wide open.

OKNJ - Cosma Cristofor built a good margin.
