Kick-Of in style!

The BNL Karting Series has now started its racing adventure in 2019, having recently hosted its customary ‘Kick-Of,’ which took place at Belgium’s Karting Genk, based in the Limburg region.

Xander Przybylak was the overall winner in DD2 class. The #412 driver with Tony Kart started the season in the best way possible.

It sees this internationally-recognized championship enter its eleventh season of competition, which attracts karting talent from across the globe, and provides its fair share of action and drama. But there are a few changes that will help this series to grow even further this year.

This year sees the introduction of both the OK and OK Junior classes, which puts the total up to ten, which has also meant a change in the race weekend format. This was as a result of there having been a request by the local ASN to establish a national championship for the category, as Karting Genk has been confirmed to host the second round of the FIA-CIK European Championships for the classes, between May 16th and 19th.

It will now run to timed races that will also conclude under an additional lap. The main reason is because of the extension on the number of classes, but it will also allow the organisers to ensure that the timetable is kept in order. Plus for the second round of the championship will no longer be visiting France’s Ostricourt circuit, with Mariembourg’s Karting des Fagnes taking its place.

BNL has also been busy in extending its social media presence further, having outlets on Facebook, YouTube and now Twitter, along with a combination of both live video and audio streams for the race weekend coverage, which is broadcasted globally. This is to help attract further great karting talents from across the globe, thereby bolstering the ranks for every event. For the traditional “Kick-Of,” over 125 drivers that represented 15 different countries headed to the “Home of Champions,” as the 1360-metre circuit would see some fantastic, fast-paced action, along with some varied twists and turns, with the drivers competing for some prestigious prizes.
