Travisanutto scored another stunning win in Kristianstad (Sweden), his second consecutive win in the European Competition and his fifth overall consecutive win over the past month! Congratulations also to our partners at CV Performance Group for the amazing job!
Very good performance as well from Dexter Patterson, driving under the colors of Sauber Karting Team. The Scotsman scored Pole position on Friday and lead the provisional classification on Saturday. He wasn’t lucky in the Final but made it to 4th and, therefore, kept the lead of the Championship.
In the Junior class, Andrea Kimi Antonelli went through an unfortunate Sunday with Rosberg Racing Academy. The Italian had also scored pole and lead the field on its way to the Final where he struggled due to a lack of grip.
Lorenzo Travisanutto (CV Performance Group):
“It’s been a fantastic race! I felt in good shape starting from free practice; something was still missing and the team did a great job to close the gap and give me more pace to win this race. Big thanks to both HTP and Kart Republic for the amazing job; we won the last five races, so we are definitely maximizing the potential of this chassis!”
Jochen Schädler (CV Performance Group):
“Another successful weekend for us! Our line of continuous victories remains unbroken still, so big thanks to Dino for helping us with this fight for the European Championship. This time, our weekend started pretty well, the speed seemed to be there already. Patterson was really strong in the Prefinal, so we were not sure enough to have the speed to beat him. Fortunately, everything came together in the final and Lorenzo did a fantastic job! We’re now going to prepare for the final round in Le Mans.”
Dino Chiesa (Kart Republic General Manager):
“Not much to say about OK, we keep being extremely competitive and we won with Travisanutto again. I’m sorry about Patterson; he’s been caught in a messy start, not his fault, and then struggled to get back, so we were probably missing something in terms of performance. Next round, they’re both going to fight for the Championship, so we’re focused on achieving that goal. I’m happy for Taylor Barnard, as he’s now in 4th position in the Championship.”
So, the teams will fly to Le Mans in July where both Patterson and Travisanutto will have the chance to become the new OK European Champion!
