Parolin Racing Kart was the best-represented chassis brand in Sarno with almost 50 karts participating in the third round of the WSK Super Master Series with 255 drivers from 45 nations in its five categories. Parolin was 1st in Mini and Mini U10 and 2nd in OK-Junior. After a tough competition Parolin Motorsport had a very positive result with Rene Lammers finishing 2nd in OK, Zac Drummond finishing in the top five in Junior and Lorenzo Travisanutto and Francesco Celenta coming back in the KZ2 Final.
“Our competitiveness is definitely improving in several categories,” said Marco Parolin. “As a manufacturer, we are delighted to be able to satisfy a growing number of drivers and teams. It may not be the most spectacular aspect of our commitment to competition, but it is an essential point that requires daily efforts at the factory and is a source of great pride for our brand. Our competitiveness in the direct-drive kart categories has been confirmed since the beginning of the season. Rene Lammers reached the second step of the OK podium this time, while Zac Drummond obtained his best result in the OK-Junior top five, closely followed by Christian Costoya and Jack Iliffe. We can count on a solid base before starting the European programme next week in Spain with the Champions of the Future Euro Series in preparation for the FIA Karting European Championship. I would also like to highlight the performances of the Parolin chassis operated by other teams: double podium in Mini U10 and Mini podium with Babyrace Driver Academy, as well as the OK-Junior podium for Shamick Europe”.
Very encouraging Final in KZ2
Francesco Celenta and Lorenzo Travisanutto were delayed by a retirement each during the Qualifying Heats which had a direct impact on their Final result. Travisanutto made the biggest improvement in the Final, gaining 14 places to finish 14th. Celenta gained seven positions from the 16th row on the grid.
Lammers confirms in OK
2nd in Qualifying, Rene Lammers had a solid run in the top three and took a win in the Qualifying Heat. He put in a superb Final performance, setting the fastest lap of the race to take 2nd place on the podium, his best result to date, after his 5th place in Franciacorta. He was now in the top three of the provisional championship standings. Miguel Costa made up ground in the heats and crossed the finish line in 18th position with a total gain of 10 places before being penalised for his wrongly-positioned front fairing.
OK-Junior: Drummond ups the pace
Like Lammers in OK, Zac Drummond was 2nd in his session during the OK-Junior Qualifying. After dropping out in the first heat, he took two wins and a 2nd place before regaining 10 places in the Final and finishing in the top five. Christian Costoya followed him in 7th place, while Jack Iliffe was close to the top 10 thanks to his 12 positions gained in the Final, a total gain of 35 places during the meeting. Kosei Oguma followed the trend in 24th position (+10 places) after an overall progression of 26 places.
Mini: Truchot fights bravely in the under 10s
Ranked 4th in his last heat and in his Prefinal, the very young Alessandro Truchot continued to enrich his experience by fighting for 13th position in the Mini Under 10 Final. John Han qualified in the Final in his first participation. In the Mini Gr3 Final, Bruno Gryc did not have the best of luck and was demoted after a penalty for a wrongly-positioned front fairing. Billi Jordan Van Staveren qualified for the Final for the first time.
