As happens (too often) in our environment, even the dazzling career of the Dutch driver from karting to Formula 1 has been distorted in a way diametrically opposed to what the facts are.

Our journey continues through the protagonists of past and contemporary karting with the fourth protagonist, once again, interviewed by you.

We interviewed the Patron of CRG on issues not only related to the history of the brand, but also to the present and the future of our sport.
RACING
5 races between April and June: 5 victories, with success in the 3rd round of the FIA Karting European Championship in Sweden, Lorenzo Travisanutto initiates a “manita” that smacks of poker. And in the championship Patterson is now closer.
With Angerville, Genk and Kristianstad filed away with three different winners in the first three OKJ races, Le Mans will be decisive for assigning the European title the 21 July weekend. Several drivers are expected to confirm their status as likely candidates, much depending on whoever, in fact, wins the European. For starters, Marcus Amand, Thomas Ten Brinke and Tuukka Taponen are the top candidates; they are followed by drivers in search of confirmations and placements especially as regards the World, another event not to be missed..
The first round of the European KZ confirms the equilibrium of the beginning of the year with Anthony Abbasse (Sodikart / Tm) in front of everyone in a weekend strongly influenced by the climate factor. He was followed by Matteo Viganò (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Alex Irlando (BirelArt / Tm): read this way the ranking does not arouse any surprise in relation to the forces in the field seen during this first part of the season, yet the Wackersdorf weekend reserved more than one surprise to the drivers and even a few … unexpected moments.
Emil Skaras wins at the photofinish preceding Cunati and Longhi in the first round of the KZ2 European.

The single-brand by Tillotson was truly impressive during its launch weekend at White River Park (Ireland), its future ready, set and it’s a go.
In order to bring new and exclusive content to our readers, Vroom has personally and exclusively tested the T4 Series with our reporters Simone Corradengo and Andrea Giustini. Here are their impressions after a free practice session each.
The advent of Formula 4 has had the consequence of lowering the age of the transition to singleseaters or cars. To date, in fact, at the age of 15, drivers already have a wide range of opportunities to compete in cars. This has also had some consequences in karting, whose business model has changed with a propensity for the Mini and Junior classes. Then there are those who, in addition to having intuited this change, have decided to put into practice an extremely ambitious project, which combines karts and single-seaters. We are talking about Danilo Rossi, 5 times world champion in karting, who besides building frames and engines with DR Racing Kart and Modena Engines brands, is also the owner of a team of F4 and Formula Regional.

LEGENDARY KART
This month the kart undergoing a restoration by the brilliant Glenn Davidson is no less than the Tonykart Esprit with which Jarno Trulli won the Suzuka Champions Cup, one of the events most sought-after by drivers in the 1990s.
LEGEND
With the legendary DAP karts the best drivers of the 70s and 80s raced and won: from 1979 World Champion Peter Koene to Ayrton Senna, 1979 and 1980 vice world champion, by Vincenzo Sospiri who won the 1987 CIK Overall (World Championship 100) to Alessandro Piccini, 1987 125 FC World Champion. Just to name a few…
