|The second session of WSK International Series will kick off in Zuera, Spain. In the programme of the event free practices are anticipated of one day on the brand new circuit, where everybody is looking forward to the core event on Sunday 15th, the day of the final races. The Club Deportivo of the Zuera International Circuit is ready to host this “FIA Authorised Series”, which counts as the first event recognised by the CIKFIA, after a good 18 years since the|
It was in 1989 in Zaragoza that the JICA World Cup was awarded to a very young driver, Jan Magnussen, who became a few years later a F1 driver. Today, instead, the WSK series award is at play, that, with its five sessions is taking its young drivers across the most important European circuits. Spanish karting world has thought to combine this international event with an equally relevant national race for the Cadete class, dedicated to the young drivers between 11 and 13.
The event schedule this weekend in Zuera definitively completes the Spanish karting 'panorama' in any respect. The opportunity to have an international structure has been taken from the very first
occasion by the managers of the circuit near Zaragoza: the “cadets” of national karting that will race in their kart with Parilla engines 85cc will be part, then, of the same event, sharing the paddock area with many champions of the WSK series. This initiative will let the tomorrow's champions have a 'taste' of an international context.
What we saw in Sarno (SA) in the first round of the season, last 18 th March, for what concerns the record 'hunting' for the final classification, is doomed to be increasing in this second session in Spain. The best example comes from 125 KZ2, a class that counts on drivers such as Davide Forè (MaranelloMaxter), four times World Champion in the FA, and Alessandro Manetti (IntrepidTM), awarded in the same category. Manetti shares his leadership with Belgian Jonathan Thonon (CRGMaxter), with whom he has alternated on the podium in the two finals on Sarno circuit. The two drivers, with a first and second post each, are now with even points. Great expectations in KF2 on the performance of young Javier Tarancon from Barcelona (FA KartVortex), after the double victory in Sarno. Very close is, instead, the race in KF3, between Matteo Viganò from Bergamo, Italy (BirelMRC), the current leader in the classification, followed by Italian Alessandro Kouzkin (TonyVortex) and by Finnish Aaro Vainio (MaranelloMRC). In KF1, English Ollie Millroy (ZanardiParilla) is standing alone followed by his team mate Luca
