Opera Napoletana

A final that was as much hard fought as it was unexpected, the race we witnessed in the last and decisive round of the KZ2 European Championship at the Naples International Circuit. Sodi kart places three drivers on the podium with Denner in front. And Skaras finds himself European champion.

The Sarno weekend put a full stop to yet another exciting KZ2 European season. With a calendar of only two races it was right to expect surprising reversals, thanks also to the high level of competitiveness, but not up to this point. The three official days of the competition shifted attention to the major performers of this category, capable of making the battle for success hotter than ever. After Palomba’s monopoly in qualifying and Vidales taking a stand during Saturday’s heats, Emilien Denner eventually won the last stage, as in the previous season.


During the official timed practice on Friday, homeboy Giuseppe Palomba (Croc Promotions) immediately made his bid for the weekend. Absolute pole position for the local driver with 56.418, that is 0.222 sec faster than a refound Giacomo Pollini (NGM Motorsport), again on the top levels of the overall standings and poleman of group B. Third virtual position for the surprising Senna Van Walstijn(KR), already fast in Wackersdorf. Last three group pole positions for Valentino Fritsh (Birel Art KSW), David Vidales (Tony Kart) and Paavo Tonteri (SC Performance) in that order. Second positions for Emilien Denner (CPB), Alessio Piccini (Tony Kart) and Emil Skaras (Energy Corse), appearing to be in slight difficulty. An even worse fate for Longhi (Birel Art) and Cunati (Modena Kart), respectively 21st and 27th place.
