CRG, AWAIT MOUNTING IN SARNO FOR THE FINALS OF THE WSK CLOSING ROUND
CRG has been protagonist of the event with its drivers in all categories. Paolo De Conto among the quickest in KZ2, Flavio Camponeschi in OK and Gabriel Bortoleto in OK-Junior.
CRG colors are all set to live an interesting weekend at the International Circuit Napoli of Sarno, where the fourth and closing round of the WSK Super Master Series is currently underway. This race will be the prelude to the European Championship opener of KZ, OK and OK-Junior, event that will take place in two weeks time on the same circuit.
Qualifying and heats of the closing weekend of WSK have underlined the speed of CRG drivers, some happy surprises arrived also in OK Junior, where the Brazilian Grabriel Bortoleto showed a great shape, while good confirmations came from the higher categories too. Category OK saw Flavio Camponeschi’s comeback after a 5 years long absence and KZ2 had a strong Paolo De Conto displaying his usual competitiveness. Some hiccups due to incidents or issues did not go missing either, like that that hit De Conto in one heat due to a spark plug and a penalty for the dropped front fairing, but expectations for a good final result are still intact. CRG drivers of private teams in 60 Mini have also been quick. The final verdict will arrive on Sunday April 9th after Prefinals and Finals of all categories.
Flavio Camponeschi’s comment at the end of heats: ”I have not been competing in a direct drive category for 5 years now, last time has been in KF back in 2012, when I won the World Championship in Macau. It is definitely not going to be easy to be back at top levels in this category for me, after all these years in KZ, but I am happily taking on the challenge. The objective is also to develop the CRG chassis and the engine Iame Parilla. This OK category is certainly better than KF, it is faster. I managed to get back in the right weight but, compared to my rivals, I am penalized a bit by my height. Nevertheless, I already had good feelings behind the wheel, I will be competing in OK for the rest of the season and will take part in the European and World Championships.”
