CRG IN SALBRIS FOR THE CIK-FIA KZ & KZ2 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
The first of the two rounds of the KZ and KZ2 European Championship will take place in France at Salbris this coming weekend. CRG will get on track with a top class squad that includes reigning European Champion Paolo De Conto. CRG’s hall of fame in shifter categories is quite impressive.

After the opening to the CIK-FIA OK and OK-Junior European Championships, the time has now come for the opener of the CIK-FIA KZ and KZ2 Championship that will be held in France at the Circuit of Salbris. CRG to field a top class team.

The European Championship will see the return to Salbris of CIK-FIA races, as will happen in the case of the South Garda Karting of Lonato, the circuit that will stage the second and closing round of the European series, that this year will feature two rounds as opposed to the four KZ and three KZ2 rounds held last year. Getting a good result since the beginning is therefore imperative!
