The last round of the 2008 Finnish KZ2 championship was ran past weekend in Lahti, a city located some 100km north of Helsinki. Hemet Racing, the international racing team of Parolin’s importer in Finland, entered the weekend holding the top three positions in the championship after 4 rounds, and their title ambitions were greatly helped by the presence of Parolin works mechanic Andrea Brioni.
The weekend was to offer plenty of reasons for happiness… first of them being the overall championship standings which remained the same – marking the first ever triple championship victory for one team in the history of karting in Finland. And then there were the brilliant performances of Parolin drivers Jesse Kuusi and Olli Myohanen! Kuusi has been a podium regular all d place in the two races secured his third place finish in the overall standings. But it was Olli Myohanen, just in his inaugural KZ season, who thrilled the crowd by storming to the podium in race 1 from 15th on the grid, thus showing everybody his full potential. Keep your eyes on these guys in the years to come!
