|After the first round in Muro Leccese that was run last week WSK rankings delineate the starting scale of values for drivers and teams. The three classes Super KF, KF2 and KF3, being the first to run at the Championship opening round, have already got their leaders in Driver and EuroCup rankings. The score is awarded according to the results in PreFinal and Final except Super KF: in the top class the results achieved in the single Final must only be added to the score of the SuperPole taking place on Saturday.|
The convincing win achieved in La Conca shoots to the top of the Super KF ranking Sauro Cesetti (BirelParillaBridgestone), the outgoing
champion from Servigliano (I) who leads at 45 points over the French driver from Bordeaux Arnaud Kozlinski (CRGMaxterBridgastone). The latter, already winner in the SuperPole has added to his score a second place achieved in the Final behind Cesetti. At the third place in the ranking as well as in the race there is the driver from SaintEtienne (F) Armand Convers who was impressive driving a
KosmicVortexBridgestone. At this early stage EuroCup ranking for teams reflects the same order as driver ranking: Birel Motorsport, CRG Spa and Kosmic Racing Dept. respective get the three top places.
The KF2 leadership is based in Cracow (PL): both Karol Basz (RKParillaBridgestone) a seventeen driver who won the race in Muro Leccese and now is leader of the WSK ranking and the more famous Robert Kubica that along with the team RK Kart Team by Savani Competition is at the top of EuroCup ranking, they come from the same town. During the breaks from his involvement in Formula 1 with the team BMWSauber, Kubica will personally follow his newborn karting team
that already achieved such double important success at his first official start. At the second place two other protagonists in the weekend in Muro Leccese are closely confronting each other: they are the English guy from Gravesend Ben Cooper (Tony KartVortexBridgestone)
and the seventeen driver from Paladina (I) Mattẹ Vigaṇ (BirelParillaBridgestone). Both are separated by few points and follow Basz at 9 lengths. In the EuroCup the relative teams rank in the same order: below the team RK there are both Tony Kart Junior Racing Team by Paul Spencer and MGM Racing, managed by the talent scout Mauro Pozzi.
Dino Chiesa intends to hang on to the very young Dutch champion Nyck De Vries (ZanardiParillaDunlop) seeing that he was able to upset every expectation that tipped Russian Danil Kvyat (Tony KartVortexDunlop) to win at la Conca. The latter achieved a second place behind De Vries both in race and in driver ranking, while British Alexandre Albon (Tony KartTMDunlop) scoring well both in PreFinal and Final in Muro Leccese, follows at the third place. In the EuroCup Chiesa Corse leads over Morsicani Racing. Both with a consistent lead are above Mick Barret Racing that follows third.
At the second WSK round, scheduled at the Napoli International Circuit in Sarno (I) from March 5th to 8th, KF2 and KF3 will be back to compete. Super KF will respect his turn of rest giving space to KZ2 that will make his season’s debut.
