CRG-2013.jpg

The await is mounting ahead of the second round of the European KZ and KZ2 Championships to take place in in Germany, at Wackersdorf, on the weekend of 13 July. CRG is heading there with good potential in both categories. After Genk, Lennox is third in KZ, while Dalè leads KZ2 with full score.

The European CIK-FIA KZ and KZ2 Championships are getting to their heart. After the season opener in Genk (Belgium), the most spectacular karting categories are now ready to compete in Germany on the quite diverse circuit of Wackersdorf that has been the theater of a lot of nice battles in the recent years.
.

Wackersdorf's round will take place on the weekend of 13 July as the second of the three rounds of the the European Championship, while the grand finale is set for the end of the month in Sweden at Kristianstad. The final classification will be defined on the basis of the best two results of qualifying heats and on those of the total three Finals. This means that two jokers will be available to drivers, one for the heats and one for the finals. The race of Wackersdorf is therefore going to be crucial for the classification.

CRG WORKS TEAM IN KZ

CRG works team in KZ will include Jordon Lennox-Lamb, who has been particularly competitive so far and has pocketed a very good third place in Genk, and Felice Tiene, at the debut this year in the European KZ as he holds a wild card due to his participation in the European KF Championship. Both Lennox and Tiene will employ Maxter engine units equipped with the latest updates that are offering good performances.

In Germany, CRG will also be represented by the Belgian driver Yannick De Brabander (CRG-TM) and by the Dutch Jorrit Pex (CRG-TM), as the latter – fielded by CRG-Holland – is a sure candidate to slide among the main protagonists of Wackersdorf, venue where he won the European title back in 2012.

Team DTK will line Davide Forè (CRG-TM) up, who has been among the front runners in Wackersdorf during last week's race valid for the German Championship. Forè has been in fact very quick and clinched the victory of the first Final. The Italian driver had to give up in the second Final though as he was hit from behind at the first corner, but his performance has been quite encouraging ahead of the race valid for the European championship of this coming weekend.

ANDREA DALE’ READY TO SHINE AGAIN IN KZ2

Andrea Dalè has been the absolute ruler in KZ2 of Genk's opener on CRG-Maxter and has been absolutely uncatchable by everyone. The goal for Dalè is now to repeat the good performance put in at Genk and, perhaps, to secure the title. We will see if the Italian driver will manage to complete the feat but, for now, one thing is set: Dalè displayed a good superiority in Genk posting laptimes that were even quicker than those of KZ!

Fabian Federer will also be racing in KZ2 among the ranks of CRG works team on CRG-Maxter. He has produced a very good performance in Belgium where he deservedly got a podium finish. The main goal for Federer will be to get a good result in Wackersdorf and recoup some ground in the classification where he is currently fifth. The Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand will also be present in Germany on CRG-Maxter.

Team Gamoto and CRG on top of 60 Mini charts with the Norwegian driver Dennis Hauger after the second round of the Italian Championship in Sarno. Good final-1 for Hiltbrand in KZ2, Gomez close to the podium in KF2.

Sarno (Salerno, Italy). In the second round of the Italian Karting Championship, CRG colors have been defended by the Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand in KZ2 and by the Venezuelan Sidney Gomez in KF2, while team Gamoto fielded Dennis Hauger – who confirmed himself as classification leader – Muizzuddin Mussyaffa Abdul Gafar and Leonardo Marseglia in 60 Mini.
.

HAUGER STILL ON TOP IN 60 MINI

Team Gamoto confirmed to be on top of the crowded 60 Mini, the class in which the team fielded all its drivers on CRG-Lke. Muizzuddin was unfortunately involved in an incident during race-1.The driver did not have physical consequences though, even if the initial moments raised some concerns about his health. Final-1 had to be split in two fractions due to the incident occurred to Muizzuddin. Hauger eventually ended sixth after holding P3, while Marseglia was relegated to the 19th place due to a penalty. In the second Final, that saw Muizzuddin regularly at the start, Hauger has played again the protagonist and crossed the finish line in fifth place, leading team mate Marseglia, while Muizzuddin ended with a solid 12th place at the end of a come back race started from the end of the grid.

Hauger still keeps the classification lead, thanks to the placings in Sarno and the double podium obtained in Muro Leccese.

HILTBRAND IN KZ2, GOMEZ IN KF2

Out of the 58 drivers present in KZ2, Pedro Hiltbrand – on track with Maxter engine – put in a bold performance that earned him the 9th place in the first of the two finals completing a good comeback from the 21st position held in qualifying and the 14th at the end of heats. A technical problem to the gearbox forced the Spaniard to the retirement in race-2 instead, when he had already started gaining some positions. Hiltbrand is currently seventh in the standings.

CRG-2013.jpg

Sidney Gomez displayed good competitiveness too in KF2, as he produced an excellent final-1 where he was very close to clinching P4. The Venezuelan driver hammered down in race-2 completing a string of very quick laps up to half-way through, when he had to concede some positions. He crossed the line in eighth place. Gomez is sixth in the standings.

CRG-2013.jpg

The season opener of the KZ and KZ3 European Championship in Genk, joint event with the third round of the European KF, gave very good indications to CRG. The only disappointment has been the vanished chance to fight for the KF title as Tiene has been put out of the games by a contact in Genk.

CRG colors lived a bitter-sweet weekend in Genk: things have been quite exciting in KZ and KZ2, but also frustrating as regarding the epilogue of KF where Felice Tiene could have confirmed himself as one of the protagonists of the Championship aiming to the final victory.
.

The balance is very positive anyway due to the very good technical and sportive indications obtained in all three categories. CRG drivers have been competitive and the technical material turned out to be strong, not only due to the very high standards of CRG chassis, but also due to the performance of Maxter engines both in KZ and KZ2, that welcomed the positive comeback to KF for the motorization by KVS.

CRG-2013.jpg

DALE’ LEADING KZ2 CHARTS

The best result for CRG came from KZ2 thanks to the performance of Andrea Dalè, the privateer that managed to get the most out of the CRG chassis and of the latest release of the Maxter engine prepared by TecSav by Savard. Dalè put in a bold performance that had the absolute quickest time of the weekend (52”801) as icing on the cake, as well as the fastest lap of the race in the Final: a 53''017 that turned out to be even quicker than the best time of 53”020 posted by CRG's Yannick De Brabander in KZ.

The third place of Fabian Federer – CRG works driver after the European title won in 2011 and always supported by CRG – in KZ2 deserves also some credit. Federer has also been using a Maxter engine unit in Genk with very good success.

The other CRG driver Daniel Formal has been quite unlucky instead, as he was stopped by an incident in the Prefinal.

KZ2 Classification after the 1st Round of Genk: 1. Dalè points 35; 2. Hansen 27; 3. Lundberg 18; 4. Juodvirsis 17; 5. Federer 16; 6. Kooijman 14; 7. Brenna 10; 8. Johansson 9; 9. Midrla 9; 10. Davies 7.

CRG-2013.jpg

LENNOX PROTAGONIST AGAIN IN KZ

Another good podium for CRG arrived in KZ thanks to Jordon Lennox-Lamb, who has been tenacious as always and put in a good performance, ended with the third place in the Final behind Ardigò and Dreezen. He also set a very good lap times on his CRG chassis with Maxter engine unit prepared by the factory: his 53.040s, turned out to be the third quickest of the Final.

Jorrit Pex has been very quick too with CRG Holland as he ended fourth absolute in the Final getting the fourth place in the classification, right behind Lennox.

Davide Forè slipped down to P16 due to a 10s time penalty instead, while Yannick De Brabander had to retire after being among the quickest.

European KZ Classification: 1. Ardigò points 33; 2. Dreezen 29; 3. Lennox-Lamb 22; 4. Pex 18; 5. Hanley 15; 6. Abbasse 12; 7. Torsellini 10; 8. Kozlinski 10; 9. Lammers 8; 10. Aceto and Thonon 7.

CRG-2013.jpg

BITTER ROUND IN KF

The bitter note of the weekend came from KF though, even if this result did not raise any question on the performance of chassis and engine, nor on drivers' quality. Felice Tiene was the only CRG driver still in the championship fight but he has been sent off track by a rival at the start of the Final. This was a real shame even though his performance was first class as confirmed in the short run he was conceded in the Final. The Italian driver posted in fact the third absolute time in 53”997, breaking the wall of 54s. This result is quite eloquent and confirms to CRG the quality of engines prepared by KVS.

Tiene's experience in this European Championship has been unfortunately spoiled by some other racers' behaviour. He was in fact hit in Muro Leccese's opener during the Prefinal, then again at the start of one heat in Genk and in the Final. This put the word end to his chances in the title campaign.

The objective now is to keep developing the material eying the season finale and the World Championship, scheduled for next 21st September in Essay (France).

Pedro Hiltbrand has also been defending CRG colors in Genk and ended 11th, while Dionisios Marcu was 15th.

KF Classification after three rounds: 1. Nielsen points 76; 2. Ilott 67; 3. Joyner 53; 4. Norris 53; 5. Kari 48; 6. Lorandi A. 37; 7. Tiene 37; 8. Hiltbrand 29; 9. Van Leeuwen 25; 10. Basz and Janker 18.

CRG'S TEAM MANAGER EUAN JEFFERY QUOTES:

Euan Jeffery: “We had a winning weekend in KZ2 thanks to a stunning Andrea Dalè who proved that this year the Italian driver can take the European Title home. He has always been the quickest, displaying a fair and square superiority. Fabian Federer has also been very quick, showed good progress and managed to claim a good third place in the Final. Both drivers confirmed the quality of CRG chassis and Maxter engines. Conversely, we had a more troubled weekend in KZ, especially as a lot of drivers were packed within a tenth of a second. CRG got the podium with Jordon Lennox as our driver did not make any mistake and his result is truly deserved, as the fourth place of Jorrit Pex at the end of a good weekend for him. Yannick De Brabander struggled a bit in the heats but has been very quick in the Final, even if he was forced to the retirement in the final stages. Felice Tiene has been flawlessly stopped by an incident in the Final of KF. He could have fought for the victory, as his race pace was exceptional. Pedro Hildebrand had some issues in qualifying, as Dionisios Marcu, but then both managed to claim good positions in the Final. Now we count on closing at best the European Championship in KF and look full of hopes at the World Championship.”

Andrea Dalè, privateer driver on CRG-Maxter, dominated the Belgian weekend in Genk winning also the Final, after claiming pole position and victory in all four heats. Federer was also on the podium of KZ2. Felice Tiene stopped by an incident in KF. Jordon Lennox-Lamb on the KZ podium in third place, ahead of Jorrit Pex.

The weekend in Belgium at the Circuit of Genk ended with a triple podium marked CRG-Maxter, thanks to a dominant Andrea Dalè, the third place of Fabian Federer in KZ2, and the third of Jordon Lennox-Lamb in KZ, who proceeded Jorrit Pex. Very tough luck for Felice Tiene in KF, who was involved in an incident when he was about to attack the front-runners in a Final whereby he would have certainly been among the protagonists.

FULL HAUL FOR DALE’ IN KZ2, FEDERER THIRD

Andrea Dalè, privateer loyal to CRG colors since his involvement as works driver for the Italian firm, had the upper hand on all his rivals. The driver from Brescia, on CRG-Maxter, got full haul in Genk as he started from the pole position, kept his momentum with 4 wins out of four heats, won the Prefinal and then claimed a fair and square victory in the Final, setting also the fastest lap of the race. Nothing is left to say... “well done!” Really uncatchable by everybody, Dalè has been the “king” of the Belgian weekend winning the first of the three rounds of the European CIK-FIA KZ2 Championship.

Remarkably enough, Andrea Dalè has been the quickest of all the weekend, even compared to the racers of the higher category KZ, both in qualifying when he posted the laptime of 52”801 – that was the absolute record of the event – and in the Final where he posted a 53”017.

Fabian Federer has been very good in KZ2 on CRG powered by Maxter supported directly by the factory, as he ended third in the Final, after a stunning comeback started from P10 due to the fifth place in Prefinal-2.

Some tough luck hit the Costa Rica's driver Daniel Formal, who was involved in an incident at the start of the Prefinal and then did not make it to the Final. Very good performance for CRG Holland's Finn Kooijman, on CRG-TM, who was fourth in the KZ2 Final after also holding the second position. The German Maik Siebecke, on CRG-Modena, put in a good Final ended in tenth place. Good growth also for Stan Pex, who is the younger brother of Jorrit Pex, good 19th on CRG-TM.

KZ2 FINAL RESULT: 1. Dalè (CRG/Maxter/B'stone); 2. Andreas (Tony Kart/Vortex/B'stone); 3. Federer (CRG/Maxter/B'stone); 4. Kooijman (CRG/TM/B'stone); 5. Juodvirsis (Energy/Maxter/B'stone); 6. Lundberg (Alpha/Parilla/B'stone); 7. Johansson (Righetti/Parilla/B'stone); 8. Brenna (TB Kart/Modena Engines/B'stone); 9. Davies (DR/TM/B'stone); 10. Siebecke (CRG/Modena Engines/B'stone).

CRG-2013.jpg

TIENE STOPPED BY AN INCIDENT IN KF

Felice Tiene could not lunge in KF after starting from the eighth spot of the grid in the Final following a good comeback in Prefinal, where he was 19th on the grid due to an incident in one heat. The Italian driver – who has been racing with KVS engine for his title hunt – was quite ready in the Final to gain P7 at the start closing in on the front runners. Unfortunately, an incident blocked him at the start of the second lap. He then finished in 25th place. This was a real shame as Tiene could have certainly been capable of fighting for the victory to aim to the title in the final race scheduled for the end of August in England.

The Spanish CRG driver Pedro Hiltbrand, had a solid weekend in KF. He managed to gain access to the Final in the repechage race recovering from P20 to third! He later on ended 11th in the Final race. Dionisios Marcu also had a good comeback, as he finished 15th in the Final after getting off from P26.

KF FINAL RESULT: 1. Nielsen (Kosmic/Vortex/Dunlop); 2. Callum (Zanardi/Parilla/Dunlop); 3. Joyner (Zanardi/Parilla/Dunlop); 4. Lorandi A. (Tony Kart/Parilla/Dunlop); 5.

CRG-2013.jpg

LENNOX ON THE PODIUM IN KZ

Jordon Lennox-Lamb put in a good performance in KZ. The British driver, on CRG powered by Maxter with the factory support, managed to claim the third step of the podium recovering from the initial eighth position in a very good weekend for CRG.

Lennox proceeded Jorrit Pex on CRG-TM, as the latter ended fourth. The two drivers have been among the main racers of the highest category with the shift throughout the weekend. Davide Forè on CRG-TM run by team DTK ended 16th instead (+10”), while Yannick De Brabander also on CRG-TM could not materialize the starting seventh place and conceded some positions until the final lap when he was forced to the retirement. The Final was won by Ardigò, who has always been among the front runners and closed ahead of Rick Dreezen, while the third place – as said – went to Jordon Lennox-Lamb.

KZ FINAL RESULT: 1. Ardigò (Tony Kart/Vortex/B'stone); 2. Dreezen (Zanardi/Parilla/B'stone); 3. Lennox-Lamb (CRG/Maxter/B'stone); 4. Pex (CRG/TM/B'stone); 5. Hanley (ART GP/TM/B'stone); 6.

CRG-2013.jpg

Following the pole position, Dalè had the upper hand in KZ2 where the privateer driver secured a poker of victories on CRG-Maxter. Federer has also been very strong, despite a DNF that penalized his classification in the heats. Lennox put in a great comeback race in KZ. Tiene was sent out in a heat of KF and will be forced to start the Prefinal from P19.

CRG colors had a very positive eve of the first round of the European Championship, race that is currently underway in Genk. In KZ2 Andrea Dalè, privateer driver on CRG with Maxter engine, took the luxury of winning three heats on Saturday, following the pole position and the victory in the first heat on Friday.
.

DALE' MAKES IT A POKER IN KZ2

Thanks to a poker of victories, Dalè is going to be the number 1 contender for the KZ2 Final stage on Sunday. He gave a stunning proof of how even a privateer driver – when provided with the right material (i.e. CRG chassis and Maxter engine) – can come to the fore in a tight championship like this European whereby he kept 78 other drivers behind.

CRG-2013.jpg

The 2011 European Champion Fabian Federer, also on CRG-Maxter, had a solid day and secured two second places and a third in the heats. Unfortunately, a retirement in the first heat on Saturday due to a technical problem to the shift relegated the Italian driver to the 16th place at the end of heats.

Some tough luck also hit Daniel Formal, who was forced to an early retirement in his final heat on Saturday due to an incident. The CRG Holland driver Fiin Kooijan, on CRG-TM, is tenth instead.

STUNNING COMEBACK FOR LENNOX IN KZ

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, on CRG-Maxter, produced a very good comeback race as he was tenth in qualifying and climbed up to fifth after the two heats, as he now stands behind Kozlinski, Dreezen, Ardigò and Thonon. The sixth absolute place is currently held by Jorrit Pex, on CRG-TM, who is ready to charge in the final stages.

Yannick De Brabander (CRG-TM) is currently ninth absolute, while Davide Forè (CRG-TM) is standing in 15th place after the heats. The two CRG drivers will be starting from the back, but are definitely not to be ruled out of the games for Sunday's Prefinal and Final.

TIENE READY TO COUNTER IN KF

Felice Tiene has been very unlucky in the first KF heat of the day as he was stopped by an incident. He later on claimed the sixth place in the other heat and this result, together with the second place harvested on Friday, earned him the 19th absolute place after the heats. Things are not going to be easy, but the very quick lap times set by Tiene allow for optimism ahead of Prefinal and Final.

In Belgium, Andrea Dalè set the quickest time in KZ2 and won the first heat. Good performance also by Federer, third in the other heat. Tiene waved CRG's flag high in KF with a second place in a coming back heat on Friday. Very good fourth place at only 60 thousands to the pole for Pex in KZ.

The European CIK-FIA Championships got underway in Genk today, Friday 13 June, with the season opener of KZ and KZ2 and the third round of KF. Good number of drivers on track: 79 racers to compete in KZ2, 32 in KZ, 62 in KF and 49 in the first race of the Academy Trophy.
.

Good news for CRG come from all the categories in the first racing day in Belgium, but the most surprising result has been achieved by Andrea Dalè on CRG-Maxter by Savard, who set the pole position at the end of qualifying and, later on, clinched the victory in one heat. Dalè has been uncatchable so far.

CRG-2013.jpg

Very positive was also Fabian Federer's day, on Maxter prepared directly by the Italian factory. Federer ended in a good seventh absolute place in qualifying and kept his momentum securing P3 in the first heat. The Italian is all set to push hard hunting for a repeat of the title won back in 2011.

Not very lucky KZ2 debut for the Puerto Rico's driver Daniel Formal, who started with a promising 11th place in the first heat, but then had to stop in the second due to a problem to the chain of his kart.

CRG works team will be contesting the third round of the European KF Championship in Genk (Belgium) with the novelty of engines by KVS. CRG Racing Team is heading to Genk with very good chances also in the opening rounds of the KZ and KZ2 European Championships.

CRG works team is all set to face the triple on track CIK-FIA commitment in Belgium, at Genk, where the third round of the KF European Championship and the first – out of three rounds – of the KZ and KZ2 are going on stage. The team will get on track with some important technical novelties.
.

This exit for CRG will be characterized by new engine units as from Genk team's chassis will be pushed by KVS engines in KF, while some of the works drivers of the Italian firm will have Maxter units fitted on their KZ and KZ2 chassis. Stakes are the titles of the European Championships won last year by CRG with Max Verstappen both in KF and KZ.

CRG-2013.jpg

FELICE TIENE READY TO LUNGE IN KF

CRG KF drivers will not have TM engines but from Genk's third round of the European Championship their karts will be pushed by KVS engines. The main goal for this was to get that continuity needed to get the title. Felice Tiene is currently second in the standings at only 7 points to the top and is well within the title fight. Tiene just missed out on speed in Zuera right when he needed it in the final stages, after claiming the pole position in the Prefinal. The Italian driver harvested anyway some handy points in the Final thanks to his seventh place, but by looking at the premise of the Spanish weekend, he should have been on the podium. Genk is going to be crucial for the title hunt and CRG will try it all ahead of the final race – the fourth round of Brandon in England – scheduled for August 31.

CRG-2013.jpg

Alongside Felice Tiene, the Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand and the Romanian driver Dionisios Marcu will be competing in Genk on the multiple times winning CRG chassis fitting KVS engine units. Unfortunately, the Venezuelan driver Sidney Gomez will not be present due to his study commitments.

CRG-2013.jpg

HIGH PROFILE TEAM IN KZ AND KZ2

CRG will field an high profile – both technically and sportively – team in the concurrent opening of KZ and KZ2 European Championships. In KZ, the CRG works team will take on track the Briton Jordon Lennox-Lamb, who is ready to get the most of his speed quality on Maxter engines. The strong Belgian driver Yannick De Brabander will be at his KZ debut with CRG and will have on his side Win Eyckmans as TM engine preparator. The Dutch 2012 title winner Jorrit Pex will be competing in KZ with CRG Holland on a TM engine prepared by a strong technician like Jos Verstappen. Davide Forè, will also be on track with CRG but, for the second year in a row, he will be wearing the colors of the Polish team DTK on CRG-TM.

CRG-2013.jpg

CRG team for KZ2 will be composed by 2012 European Champion Fabian Federer and by the excellent Daniel Formal, the American driver born in Costa Rica that has come to the fore in Rotax International Championships. Both KZ2 drivers will be using Maxter engines.

CRG-2013.jpg

Stunning race by Felice Tiene in Zuera (Spain) that confirmed to be among the title contenders in the European KF Championship. Jordon Lennox-Lamb strong protagonist in DD2 at the Rotax Euro Challenge in Castelletto.

Last weekend has seen a double and exciting challenge for CRG, that has been racing in Zuera (Spain) at the European CIK-FIA KF & KF Junior Championship as well as in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Italy) for the Rotax Euro Challenge.

Both racers are well within the fight for the corresponding titles.
.

STUNNING TIENE IN ZUERA

Felice Tiene has been one of the main protagonists of the weekend in Zuera's European Championship, putting his name forward for the title. The Italian driver run a solid qualifying, where he secured the third place in his group and the sixth in the absolute standings. He then unleashed all his potential in the heats setting the absolute best performance: 3 splendid wins out of 4 races earned him 10 precious points for the championship. In the Prefinal, Tiene was again in the leading group securing the fifth place. In the Final he was involved in a series of very good duels and he finally took the seventh place. This is quite a handy placing classification-wise, as Tiene is currently fourth only 7 points shy of the leader.

The victory of the race went to Tom Joyner – back to the victory after his triumph in Bahrain that gave him the World Champion title – who awarded another satisfaction to Tinini Group.

CRG-2013.jpg

The race of CRG's Spaniard Pedro Hiltbrand has been positive too, as he crossed the finish line in P11 after a very good comeback from the 20th place in qualifying. Sidney Gomez and Dionisios Marcu experienced a series of technical issues in KF and could not get access to the final stages.

CRG-2013.jpg

The other young Spaniard fielded by CRG, Eliseo Martinez Merono, obtained a good result in KF Junior as he crossed the line in seventh place, after a stunning comeback from an unlucky 47th place in qualifying. His positive trend has been really excellent. The other two drivers on track in Junior, Konstantinos and Archie Tillett, could not overcome the barrier of repechage race instead.

LENNOX CLOSE TO THE PODIUM IN CASTELLETTO

Jordon Lennox-Lamb has been exceptional in DD2, as usual, in the concurrent second round of the Rotax Euro Challenge after the spectacular win he clinched in Genk.

Lennox is currently second in the standings at only 7 points to the leader Ben Cooper.

CRG-2013.jpg

Very good performance by Daniel Formal in DD2. The quick driver from Costarica has always been among the quickest drivers also in Castelletto. Formal has been unfortunately slowed down by an incident in the Final and he ended 14th.

The young German driver Luka Kamali has been quite unlucky instead. He has been very good in qualifying and heats, where he gained the fifth absolute time. But due to strong pain to his ribs he was forced to give up and skip the final stages.

The Canadian Alessandro Bizzotto has been very quick too in DD2, but he rolled over in the last qualifying heat and had to run the Repechage race. Unfortunately he missed to gain access to the final by two positions only.

The Belgian driver Yannick De Brabander and the Polish Lukasz Bartoszuk have been competing in Rotax Senior. Both drivers managed to get the pass to the final stages but due to several problems De Brabander ended the Final in P20, while Bartoszuk had to retire after being 17th in the Prefinal.

CRG-2013.jpg
