|A first observation can be made about the 2009 WSK debut: many teams have chosen Maxter engines to drive at the top of their performances on the international scene. “In addition to CRG, our historic partner, Maxter has provided its engines to Zanardi, DR, Maranello, LH as well as Maddox”, Nico Carigiet noted at La Conca. “Moreover, we were very well represented in all the categories, from Super KF to KF2 and KF3. And it will be the same in KZ2, when this category makes its debut in March, in Sarno”.|
In Super KF, Arnaud Kozlinski and Aaro Vainio (Maranello), who has just arrived from KF3, set the best times during the Super Pole. These two drivers repeated their excellent performances during timed qualifying, and Jonathan Thonon also achieved some good results. Finally, Kozlinski crossed the finishing line in second position, a very encouraging result for this season debut.
Already very fast during timed practice, Stoffel Van Doorne (CRG-Maxter) finished 4th in KF2, where Sami Luka (DR) showed all his talent by reaching the top 3 three times in the qualifying heats, before being struck by bad luck. And in KF3, Dutch Joey Elkerbout reached the fifth position with his Zanardi in timed practice, preceding Finnish Mikko Pakari (Maranello). Winner of two heats,
Elkerbout was equally good during the qualifying phase, which Pakari finished in second position. Unfortunately the final phase was fatal to these two fast kartmen.
