Top performances for Parolin Motorsport in Valencia

The European OK and OK-Junior Championships are drawing nearer and the first round of the Champions of the Future – Euro Series which has just taken place in Spain at Valencia was a good preparation, with the discovery of the new Maxxis tyres selected by FIA Karting. Parolin Motorsport continued to perform well in OK and OK-Junior. Anatoly Khavalkin and Zac Drummond led the way before finishing 4th and 6th. Christian Costoya was at the top of his game in OK-Junior until he re-tired in the Final.

“We’re very satisfied with the work done in the first round of the Champions of the Future – Euro Se-ries at València,” said Marco Parolin. “The task was to find the right feeling with the new Maxxis tyres, and I think that we succeeded as a team in finding the right combination with the Option and Prime compounds. As well as Drummond’s pole position in OK, we managed to get group poles with Costoya in OKJ and Khavalkin in OK, and to win several heats in both categories, as well as a wet Prefinal in OKJ. Fortunately, we were also able to test the rain tyres and gather important infor-mation for future occasions.”
