European fever

The gearbox karting season is ready to go live with the FIA European Karting that starts in Wackersdorf on May 5th.
Jorrit Pex and Jeremy Iglesias in close contact on the occasion of the decisive test of the KZ European last season, the title ended then in the hands of the Dutch CRG / Tm driver.

Germany-Italy. No, it is not the revenge of the 2006 World Cup, but rather the countries that will host the FIA Karting European Championship for the KZ class. The “Formula 1” of karts, therefore, is ready for the most prestigious European competition of all; a competition that last year rewarded - not without controversy - Jorrit Pex (CRG / TM). It starts again from that contact, between Paolo De Conto (CRG / TM) and Francesco Celenta (Praga / TM), who in Lonato had decided the fate of a European championship already assigned to the same De Conto. Numerous controversies followed: was it a clean entrance? Did Paul exceed the limit? As usual, whatever the truth, judgement passed on to the race director who, as a judge, pronounced himself with a sentence. Among the innovations, the return of Wackersdorf on the calendar is certainly to be mentioned, instead of a Salbris that last year had done nothing but create controversies related to tires. This risk should not arise this year, since both the German and Sarno tracks represent two more quality asphalt tracks.

So should we prepare ourselves for a real fight between drivers, without external variables? At first impression it would be possible to say yes, but we know that in karting the last word always belongs to the checkered flag.
