Emil Skaras wins at the photofinish preceding Cunati and Longhi in the first round of the KZ2 European.

After a good Friday for our – Italian - colors, a completely diferent scenario on Saturday’s heats characterized by consistent rain. The Final of the Sunday played on a dry track closed the irst round of the European round in style thanks to the sprint inish in which the Swede Emil Skaras prevailed.


As mentioned, Friday’s qualifying under normal – ie dry - Wackersdorf conditions had the Italians taking the helm, at least in the irst instance. At the end of the three qualifying series, Riccardo Longhi snatched the absolute best time (46.996), a clear signal to his rivals. The surprising Simone Cunati took P2, less than one tenth from the summit; third virtual place on the grid went to the third Italian star, Giuseppe Palomba. Behind the Azzurri, the remaining three group pole positions were obtained by David Treilovs, Senna Van Walstijn and Emil Skaras.


The heats on Saturday, in the rain, reshufled expectations, claiming illustrious victims and presenting a new classiication at the end. The homeboy Alexander Schmitz best interpreted the wet Wackersdorf track, maximizing his starting position from the second row of the grid. Schmitz was able to bring home three wins, and a third and a second place, totally innocuous for the purposes of the classiication of the heats. Equally astute and constant was Emil Skaras, antagonist in the wet to Schmitz, inishing behind him with as many successes in the preliminaries. Third virtual place in the hands of Giuseppe Palomba, the only Italian qualifying survivor, with two victories. In the top ive, Simone Cunati, constantly between second and third place but with a ninth place too, and the surprising Philip Hall to close the irst ive positions. Many well-knowns were caught out by bad weather, technical problems and penalties, above all: Riccardo Longhi, Giacomo Pollini, Alessio Piccini and Maximilian Paul.
