At the Adria Karting Raceway, Pedro Hiltbrand delivered a great recovering performance, making up nine positions to the highest step of the podium. In the final race, the Spaniard joined the fight for the victory with his two teammates Joseph Turney and Lorenzo Travisanutto. The amazing result came after a weekend characterized by extremely changeable conditions where the Tony Kart material proved once again to support the drivers at best in every moment of the race.
For Pedro Hiltbrand and Lorenzo Travisanutto, recently hired by Tony Kart, the feeling was excellent. The Italian, besides his third place, also gained the pole position on a wet track, two heats, and a Prefinal with the best lap. Hiltbrand, on the other hand, made the most of the decisive race, driving with slick tyres on asphalt gradually getting dry while also taking the best lap of the Final. Joseph Turney also showed a strong level of performance with two victories and a second place (and best lap) in the Prefinal before concluding his weekend as second of the Final.
Great weekend also for Josep Martì Sobrepera despite an uncertain start from the second position of the Final. The Spaniard still showed all the great progress made so far with the second-fastest lap time in Qualifying and two second places between the Prefinal and the heats along with a best lap. Considering the performance shown in the latest part of the season, the Spaniard can look forward to the 2020 season in OK.
In OK-Junior, Nikita Bedrin produced another important weekend with an excellent second place in a final run with rain tyres on asphalt with unpredictable grip. Polesitter on Friday, the Russian also took a second place in the Prefinal and a third place in the Qualifying Heats ranking where he gained a victory and a second place with the best lap. Aiden Neate and Harley Keeble went through some difficulties but carried on their path of growth in a very instructive weekend.
The very young drivers also entered in 60 Mini brought home lots of experience from the Adria race. They proved to be fast with the fifth position in qualifying gained by Jules Caranta, together with James Egozi in the top ten. All Tony Kart’s standard bearers were protagonists of great battles in the heats. Jimmy Helias emerged as the best of them all after a comeback of eight positions in the Final.
The WSK Final Cup closed the international season of the Tony Kart Racing Team before tackling other challenges in 2020.
