OK Junior: Full Haul for Bedrin
Nikita Bedrin (Tony Kart/Vortex) completed a Hat-Trick in OK Junior starting on Friday’s Qualifying practice. The Russian then kept his momentum going in the Heats, Prefinal, and Final through the weekend. In the final race, several of his rivals put in interesting comebacks as the Dutch Thomas Ten Brinke (FA Kart/Vortex) and the Brit Jamie Day (Exprit/Vortex) managed to climb up to 2nd and 3rd despite starting from further back on the grid (click here for the full OK Junior classification).
Thanks to his victory, Bedrin is currently leading the points classification with 90 points while the constant pace of the Dutch Robert De Haan (Energy/TM) earned him 41 points.
60 Mini: Macintyre for the win
Douwe Dedecker (Parolin/TM) had tough luck in the 60 Mini Final. After starting the race from Pole position, the Belgian had to retire after leading the pack for two laps. The lead was inherited by Andrea Filaferro (Tony Kart/TM) who was challenged by the Brit William Macintyre (Parolin/TM). The latter found his way past the Italian and kept the first spot all the way to the chequered flag, followed by the Jamaican Alex Powell (Energy/TM). After losing some ground following Macintyre’s overtaking, Filaferro managed to recover and closed the final lap in 3rd (click here for the full 60 Mini classification).
Macintyre currently leads the classification with 80 points with Powell second at 58.
KZ2: Puhakka wins the titans’ clash
A surprising Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart/Vortex) responded with a lightning start to Riccardo Longhi’s Pole position (BirelArt/TM) in the KZ2 Final. The Finn locked up the lead from the second row of the grid. After a slow start of the weekend, the Dutch Bas Lammers (SodiKart/TM) seemed resolute to get the final win as the recent WSK Super Master Series winner chased Puhakka from the third row of the grid to eventually finish on his tail. The French Anthony Abbasse (SodiKart/TM) completed the podium and present himself as a strong rival to Puhakka in the points classification where the Tony Kart driver currently seats on top with 70 points (click here for the full KZ2 classification).
The next round of the WSK Euro Series will unfold in Angerville, France, from April 25th to 28th.
