Giancarlo Tinini, president of C.R.G. S.p.A., announces an agreement which concerns the creation of a new “CRG Junior Team”: “An agreement has been reached between CRG and VDK for the creation of a Junior Team which will have the task to let the young drivers grow in competitions. The selection of the best drivers it’s up to VDK, then they will be proposed to the factory team for the continuation of their activity at the highest levels”.
The CRG Group is going to extend its racing engagement in karting and will have a new “CRG Junior Team” that will be side by side with the head office, with the main goal to let the new karting talents grow. The “CRG Junior Team” will therefore have the mission to favour above all the young drivers competitive activity towards the most important sports goals. It’s a clear sign of trust in the future, starting from the youngest drivers, which involves an important brand such as the CRG Group, that confirmed itself also this year as the most winning brand in World Championship titles.
The new “CRG Junior Team” will be managed by the two Belgian brothers Alain and Eric Verdaasdonk, appreciated owners of the VDK Team and clever talent-scout like in the case of Jonathan Thonon, world champion now for the third consecutive time with CRG-Maxter after having started his karting career in 1996 in the “mini” class of the Belgian Championship with the VDK Team. Among the drivers who are followed at the moment by the VDK Team we need to mention the 17-years-old Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne who is successfully racing in the WSK International Series.
The “CRG Junior Team” will take part in the international races of the KF3 and KF2 categories, in the Belgian and French Championships and will avail itself of a suitable operating structure on the race tracks.
