The third round of the WSK Super Master Series has been successful both in terms of participation and spectacle this weekend. The race was housed by the new 1550-meter long International Circuit Napoli in Sarno with 271 drivers from 47 nations on track.
KZ2: Kremers takes the win, Valtanen the lead
Several twists enlivened KZ2 where, eventually, Marijn Kremers (Birel AR/TM) took the win in an exciting Finale. After winning the Prefinal B, he led the KR Motorsport pairing made by Juho Valtanen (KR/TM), winner of the Prefinal A, and Danilo Albanese (KR/IAME). Giuseppe Palomba (BirelART/TM) was fourth and Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart/Vortex) fifth. Francesco Celenta (Parolin/TM) and Adrien Renaudin (Sodikart/TM) did not finish due to an incident, while other protagonists like the classification leader Viktor Gustavsson (BirelART/TM) and Alex Irlando (CRG/TM) were out of the games already in the Prefinal.
KZ2 Final top 10: 1. Kremers; 2. Valtanen; 3. Albanese; 4. Palomba; 5. Puhakka; 6. Longhi; 7. Ippolito; 8. Marseglia; 9. Hiltbrand; 10. Iglesias.
KZ2 classification: 1. Valtanen points 174; 2. Kremers 131; 3. Gustavsson 101; 4. Albanese 100; 5. Puhakka 93.
OK: Antonelli back to the victory, Camara keeps the leadership
Andrea Kimi Antonelli (KR/IAME) was back to the victory in a WSK event after winning last year’s WSK Euro Series. The Italian driver has been perfect both in Prefinal A and in Final, dominating the two races from lights to flag, while his teammate Rafael Camara won the Prefinal B, but then was relegated from second to fourth by a three-second penalty in the Final, a result that allowed him to retain the classification lead. The other two podium positions went therefore to Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart/Vortex) and Artem Severiukhin (Tony Kart/Vortex). Igor Cepil (KR/IAME) was fifth instead.
OK Final: 1. Antonelli; 2. Taponen; 3. Severiukhin; 4. Camara; 5. Cepil; 6. Malek; 7. Tsolov; 8. Modenese; 9. Fittipaldi; 10. Turnay.
OK classification: 1. Camara points 255; 2. Antonelli 196; 3. Taponen 157; 4. Lindblad 145; 5. Severiukhin 123.
OK-Junior: Russian drivers to the fore, Powell leads the classification
Russian drivers have been shining in OK-Junior after Kean Nakamura Berta (Exprit/TM) and Enzo Deligny (Parolin/TM) had the upper hand in the two Prefinals. Kirill Kutskov (KR/IAME) and his fellow-countryman Maksimilian Popov (Tony Kart/Vortex) bounced back in the Final. Third place went to Singapore’s Akshay Bohra (KR/IAME) who led the Belgian teammate Douwe Dedecker. The latter ended fifth, winning the sprint to the line while Alex Powell, confirmed his classification lead.
OK-Junior Final: 1. Kutskov; 2. Popov; 3. Bohra; 4. Dedecker; 5. Deligny; 6. Powell; 7. Slater; 8. Krapin; 9. Keeble; 10. Sammalisto.
OK-Junior classification: 1. Powell points 180; 2. Bohra 160; 3. Kutskov 123; 4. Popov 122; 5. Slater 101.
Mini: Maiden win for Olivieri, the series still in Costoya’s hands
The Mini Final has been both uncertain and hard-fought. Victory went to Emanuele Olivieri (IPK/TM) who claimed his maiden win in a WSK event. Olivieri pipped Jindrich Pesl (Parolin/IAME) and Lewis Wherrell (KR/IAME). René Lammers (Parolin/IAME) was among the quickest and slipped down to fourth in the closing stages, while Jimmy Helias (Tony Kart/Vortex) was fifth. The classification is still sub-judice due to the appeal to the decision to exclude Helias from Qualifying early into the weekend. The classification leader Christian Costoya (Parolin/TM) was eighth after winning the Prefinal A and leading the central part of the Final.
Mini Final (sub-judice): 1. Olivieri; 2. Pesl; 3. Wherrell; 4. Lammers; 5. Helias; 6. Orjuela; 7. Ivannikov; 8. Costoya; 9. Slater; 10. Tarnvanichkul.
Mini classification (sub-judice): 1. Costoya points 195; 2. Lammers 192; 3. Olivieri 146; 4. Orjuela 124; 5. Skulanov 120.
