|The first round of the 2009 WSK series, held at Muro Leccese (Southern|
Italy), had a special importance, since it marked the official debut of the new and recently homologated CRG chassis. “We have been very
satisfied with the results of tests carried out on the 2009 CRG chassis before the meeting, although we are still in an early stage of our development”, the CRG team manager commented.
At the wheel of his CRG-Maxter, Arnaud Kozlinski opened the dance and set the best time at an event which is always very appreciated: the Super Pole, organised in the top category, the Super KF. With his usual talent, the French driver always remained in the leading group and showed all his competitiveness by setting the best lap in one of the heats. “I really felt that victory was within my reach. At the
start of the final, I did not want run any risk because I knew the race would be long, covering a distance of 40 km. Then, at the end of the race, I found myself shoulder to shoulder with Cesetti. My equipment was great, but I could not find an opening. A podium meant a lot for the team, so I did not try the impossible. It was also a good decision in the context of the Championship”, Arnaud concluded.
Belgian Jonathan Thonon, who finished sixth, completed the excellent result achieved by the CRG team, while his compatriot Stoffel Van Doorne (VDK Racing team) was fourth in KF2, with his CRG. A good result for this young driver, who still has limited international experience!
