Splendid finals excite the WSK Euro Series 2020

The WSK Euro Series had an exciting and unpredictable conclusion after six racing days for the double round at the South Garda Karting Circuit in Lonato. The grand finale on Sunday, September 20th, was dedicated to the closing races of the Round 2 & 3 for categories KZ2, OK, OK-Junior and MINI after the opener held last July 12th in Sarno.

The 8 finals in Lonato completed the intense program on Sunday in an event that involved 226 drivers out of the over 240 entered from 34 different countries. They competed in 80 races including heats and Prefinals that were necessary to name the finalists putting in a remarkable spectacle with a lot of champions coming to the fore.

The victory in the end went to Riccardo Longhi (BirelART/BirelART-TM Racing-Vega) in KZ2, Andrea Kimi Antonelli (KR Motorsport/KR-Iame-LeCont) in OK, who also won the Italian ACI Sport Championship, Alfio Andrea Spina (Tony Kart Racing Team/Tony Kart-Vortex-Vega) in OK-Junior – who also won the Italian title of the category, and René Lammers (Baby Race/Parolin-Iame-Vega) in MINI. These are the champions, but the battles on track have involved also other very strong karting drivers.

 

KZ2. Rounds 2 and 3 to Kremers and Irlando, the title to Longhi.

Palomba has been the most accredited title contender, but thanks to the points scored in the opener in Sarno added to those secured in Lonato, Longhi claimed the title with an advantage of 5 points, despite the 11th place in the closing final.

In the final of Round 3 Antonelli had to settle for P4, as Joe Turney claimed the win from the Russian Nikita Bedrin (Ward Racing/Tony Kart-Vortex) to Juho Michael Valtanen, who secured another podium in P3.
