Again in Lonato, the first round of the WSK Super Master Series gave Parolin Motorsport the opportunity to start its KZ2, OK and OK-Junior drivers as well as its Mini drivers in a very competitive situation. 334 drivers from 51 nations competed in the South Garda Karting.
This first weekend of February confirmed the excellent potential of Parolin Racing Kart chassis in all categories. Alessandro Truchot was more confident and was remarkably consistent at the front in the Under 10 category, finishing 4th. Christian Costoya in 4th and Zac Drummond in 10th spearheaded the Italian brand in the 90-strong OK-Junior class. In KZ2, Lorenzo Travisanutto concluded on a positive note with a Final climb of 16 positions. Francesco Celenta was 10th in Qualifying and 5th in his Prefinal.
In OK, the two young Junior drivers, Anatoly Khavalkin and René Lammers, made significant progress during the Qualifying Heats to finish 4th and 10th respectively in the Final.
William Calleja started well with his 7th fastes time in Mini, but was delayed by a retirement in the last heat. He nevertheless saved his weekend by regaining 14 positions in the Final. Bruno Gryc did not benefit from his progress in the heats because of an incident halfway through the Final. Dan Allemann qualified in 25th position out of 74 drivers.
Alessandro Truchot was much faster than the previous week, taking the Mini U10 pole position and leading the heats with two wins. He fought hard for the Final top three before finishing 4 hundredths off the podium.
“The first WSK Super Master Series allowed us to run our drivers in all categories and to get a positive overall result”, explained Marco Parolin. “Against very strong competition the Parolin Motorsport team performed very well and recorded important data for the rest of the season. We have already noticed very interesting potential in several of our drivers. The atmosphere will be serious in the upcoming competitions, starting with the second round of the WSK Super Master Series in Franciacorta in less than two weeks, which we will approach with greater ambition.”
