CRG, THE NEW 2018 RACING CHASSIS RANGE
Following the new homologation (2018-2020) for chassis, fairing and braking systems, CRG has introduced several technical innovations.

As the homologation works regarding chassis, braking systems and fairings for the next three years (2018-2020) have reached their conclusion, CRG has officially introduced its new Racing range for season 2018.

The new chassis will be available through the CRG sales network in the next few days and the main teams connected to CRG are already testing the material on track to allow their drivers to prepare the next racing season.

A lot of innovations have been introduced, both regarding technical solutions and design. Design-wise, CRG had already previewed the attractive new look of the chassis (that will be customizable with the name of the driver) and the new stickers kit that will be standard on all products.

From a technical side, the main novelty is the introduction of two new chassis for direct drive classes: the 30mm and 32mm KT4 models and the Heron 30mm chassis featuring a special geometry.

Regarding KZ, the successful Road Rebel has been updated with some technical interventions to make it use more effectively the tyres employed in the main KZ classes. An important work has also involved braking systems with the adoption of new discs and pads, while fairings and holders have been updated to provide important weight improvements. The whole range is fitted with new steering wheels, that have a diameter of 340mm and lifted spokes that allow an higher grip.
The most significant novelties follow.

KZ CHASSIS. The center of gravity of the successful model Road Rebel has been modified in function of the tyres used in the main KZ categories, which improved cornering, braking and traction. Performance has also been optimized by a slight change in the rear track. All KZ models of this range feature magnesium R-line hubs and spindles, magnesium wheels and new VEN 11 KZ braking systems.

CRG-2013.jpg

DIRECT DRIVE CHASSIS. The model KT2 with 30mm tubes is the reference point for direct drive chassis that have specifically designed for OK and for the main single make Trophies. No real big change has been made to the chassis. Models KT4 and Heron are a novelty instead. The first has a 30mm tubing and 32mm crossbeams and front end tubing. The geometry of the central part of the chassis converges to the middle, and the convergence becomes more pronounced in correspondence of the fuel tank. The HERON model takes up the concepts of a CRG chassis used back in the 90s revisiting it with the current technology. This model has a particular chassis layout featuring the central crossbeam fused with the front end. All models fit magnesium R-line hubs and spindles, magnesium wheels and new VEN 11 DD braking systems.

KZ BRAKING SYSTEMS. Starting from 2018, KZ braking systems produced by CRG will be identified by the code VEN 11 KZ. Break calipers have not undergone big modifications, compared to the previous homologation, but discs, front and rear pads have been updated significantly. The external diameter of the cast iron, self-venting disc that was previously daisy-shaped has now become linear, and the section of the cooling holes has been changed too. The diameter of the rear disc has been raised from the previous 189mm to 192mm, while the diameter of front discs has gone up to 154mm from the previous 150mm. The new brake pads will be orange instead of red. These interventions produced a more effective braking, a more homogeneous wear of pads which turn in a better feeling with the brake pedal for the driver.

DIRECT DRIVE BRAKING SYSTEMS (OK). Braking systems for direct drive categories will be identified by the code VEN 11 DD. These are identical to the KZ rear braking system, with all the novelties in terms of disc shape and orange pads. The most important update for the direct drive categories is the optional choice of a smaller disc. This new element is still cast iron and self-venting, but has a 181mm diameter instead of the standard 192mm and is thinner. The benefit of this solution is a reduction of the spinning mass, especially in Junior classes that have lower power, with a better modulation of the braking force. A specific adaptation kit has been devised to fit this disc, which includes hubs and specific supports for the brake caliper and slightly bigger pads.

FAIRINGS. The biggest change regarding the newly homologated fairings is at the front end, that has been updated with a new layout in the central part and made wider. This is to improve the drag coefficient and to provide more safety. The front steel bumper has also been updated in its top and lateral parts and has been made a lot lighter. The front number holder has also been slightly changed, while the supports of the side pods have been modified to achieve a big weight reduction.

CRG PROTAGONIST BUT A BIT UNLUCKY AT THE TROFEO DELLE INDUSTRIE
Andrea Rosso made a great debut with CRG in OK being very quick. Fabian Federer did not start well from the pole position in KZ2 but ended fourth in the Final. Gabriel Bortoleto could not get the most of a good start to the weekend in OK-Junior.

Edition 46th of the Trofeo delle Industrie held in Lonato at the South Garda Karting Circuit did not smile to CRG colors, despite giving productive feedback for several drivers competing on the chassis made by the Italian company.

Andrea Rosso (CRG-Parilla-Vega) made his deubut with CRG in OK and confirmed to be very quick and could have won the race organized by Parma Karting had he not slipped in some pitfalls, like the 10s time penalty he was handed in Prefinal due to the dropped front fairing on his kart or the incident in the Final when chasing P2 after an exceptional comeback race. Rosso was the quickest after heats though, but he had eventually to settle for P5 in the Final, posting the quickest lap of the race and displaying an overall good speed. Among CRG drivers, Michael Rosina managed also to take a top ten finish in P10.

CRG-2013.jpg

In KZ2, Fabian Federer, started the Final from the pole position on CRG-Tm run SRP Racing Team. He had been among the absolute protagonists of the event winning the Prefinal after clinching P2 in the heats and being the quickest of Group 1 in qualifying. Unfortunately, Federer did put in a good getaway in the Final and threw away a victory that seemed at reach in this way, closing his effort in P4, leading CRG Holland’s Benjamin Tornqvist after a great comeback race.

Alessandro Giardelli is proving to be a strong interpreter of KZ2: he was quick in qualifying posting the fourth time of Group 2 and then showed good speed in the race taking P10. Andrea Dalè (Nuova 3M) has also been shining for CRG colors taking the eleventh place, while the Brazilian Gaetano Di Mauro was 19th in the Final after recovering ten places. Filippo Berto had an unlucky debut with CRG and was forced to an early retirement form the Final, as Daniele Vezzelli who run a great Prefinal, while Marco Valenti could not go beyond the second chance race, despite showing an improved competitiveness. The French Emilien Denner run a very strong race on Kalì-Kart, despite losing some positions especially in Prefinal, after a promising P13 in qualifying. He eventually closed his weekend in 23rd place.

CRG-2013.jpg

The best of CRG drivers in OK-Junior was the Spaniard Javier Sagrera of M2 Racing Karts, who was seventh in the Final, while the Brazilian Gabriel Bortoleto could not get the most of the weekend that started well with a good fourth place in Prefinal and ended 11th. Some hiccups prevented Luca Giardelli and Leonardo Bertini Colla respectively to go beyond the 15th and 16th place. Mathias Torreggiani was handed a 10s time penalty that relegated him to the final 23rd place.

Alfio Spina has been the best of the 60 Mini drivers on CRG, but CRG Gamoto’s driver had to settle for P6 this time around, a result that confirms him among the strongest of the category though. The American Akshay Bohra ended also in the top ten in P9.

DE CONTO WITH LAMBORGHINI…. BUT IT IS JUST A TEST PRIZE FROM DAD
The two times World Champion and three times European Champion Paolo De Conto has tested the Lamborghini Huracan Supertrofeo of Team Antonelli, in a test prize promised and given by his dad after the World Championship won by Paolo.

Paolo De Conto, who has won the 2016 World Championship in Kristianstad (Sweden) and the 2017 in Wackersdorf (Germany) on CRG-TM, has received a special prize for his great results: a test on the Lamborghini Huracan Supertrofeo run by the Italian GT Champion team Antonelli Motorsport at the circuit of Cremona.

Paolo De Conto had been promised this test by his dad Mario ahead of the World Championship held in Wackersdorf. Now the promise has been kept, thanks to the support of the Minardi Management after he won the second World Championship in a row on CRG-TM.

CRG-2013.jpg

“I had a lot of fun, I was like a kid” Paolo De Conto commented after an intense testing day started at 9 AM and ended at 5PM, after completing more than 100 laps on track. At the eve of the test Paolo De Conto was resolute to take it easy, but after getting acquainted with the car, he started to put in interesting lap times. This was kind of expected from someone that has always been a top driver in his life. “I enjoyed a lot the car – Paolo De Conto admitted – it is quite a good toy...” For the records, his best lap time has been 1’25”9s. Marco Antonelli completed some laps too and posted a best performance of 1’25”3s, which means that the lap times posted by De Conto are very good even compared to the performance of a very experienced and successful driver like Antonelli.

CRG-2013.jpg

“It has been a great experience – Paolo De Conto continued – but my number one priority is karting – with CRG – 100%. Next week I am gonna be in Vegas where I will take part in the important end of season American race. I will be competing in S1 and KZ. I am totally committed to karting. I hope to repeat the results scored in the past few years also next season, and hopefully even improve them… I do not want to think about cars, but I have to admit that I had a lot of fun...”

CRG HITTING THE DKM JACKPOT IN LONATO
CRG has claimed three titles with Jorrit Pex in KZ2, Dennis Hauger in OK and Kas Haverkort in OK-Junior at the closing round of DKM held in Lonato.

The German Championship DKM has seen once again CRG having the upper hand an the rivals thanks to several solid results in the closing round held at the South Garda Karting circuit in Lonato, that has ended with Jorrit Pex taking the victory in KZ2 and Dennis Hauger and Kas Haverkort alike, respectively in OK and OK-Junior.

The race in Lonato, that was the debut of the DKM Championship with 170 drivers on track, has been quite tricky due to the weather conditions, but the competitiveness of CRG drivers has been great in all grades.

SIXTH WIN FOR JORRIT PEX IN KZ2

Jorrit Pex claimed his sixth DKM title in KZ2 on CRG-Tm, after winning it for four years running from 2011 to 2014 and then again in 2016. The Dutch driver of CRG Holland has been among the best since qualifying and heats in Lonato, ending third in Race-1 and securing the title one race early in this way. Jorrit Pex closed Race-2 in seventh place, but with the Championship victory firmly in his hands.

Jorrit Pex commented the victory in this way: “This is has been my sixth championship now. It was a good season, I was on top 3 in eight of the ten races and I scored three victories in the two rounds in Wackersdorf. It has been a good competition in DKM, very good organization, many good drivers and I liked the tracks we used. When it is a good competition of course you like to win, especially for the sixth time. This was the first time in Lonato and it has been very nice, a lot of drivers. Next year the first race will be in Lonato and I think it will be full fields. Very nice.”

CRG-2013.jpg

Among the quickest in KZ2, Jorrit’s younger brother Stan Pex ended the championship in third position, while SRP Racing Team’s Fabian Federer followed him in fourth. Flavio Camponeschi could not make it to the start of this closing round in Lonato, as he is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the recent World Championship in England and ended the DKM campaign in fifth place. His end result made it 4 CRG drivers in the top 5.

Among the young drivers in force at CRG, Alessandro Giardelli is turning out to very competitive. He has been very quick also in this occasion taking P7 in qualifying and P6 after the heats. The victory of the two finals of Lonato’s closer went to Jeremy Iglesias, who is the runner-up in the championship, and to Matteo Zanchi.

DENNIS HAUGER CHAMPION ALSO IN OK

In OK, the Norwegian Dennis Hauger ended his happy experience in karting on CRG-Iame on a high, before switching to car racing next year. Hauger managed to take the championship victory thanks to Race-1’s victory in Lonato, at the end of quite an eventful race. He therefore claimed another DKM title after winning last year’s OK-Junior campaign. Hauger secured the title one race early at the end of Race-1 having the best of his nearest rival David Schumacher, before taking another podium in Race-2 with P5. Hauger has obtained 5 wins in DKM with CRG in this season: one in Kerpen, three in Wackersdorf and the final one in Lonato.

Among CRG drivers, Kilian Meyer has been shining taking P7 in Race-1 in his comeback to karting after a wrist injury, while Tim Troger and Michael Rosina also ended Race-2 in the top ten, as they respectively ended ninth and tenth.

CRG-2013.jpg

Dennis Hauger’s comment: “Probably this has been my last race in karting so it is a bit sad, I will miss my team, they helped me so much in the last two years. At CRG we worked together so well, so I will miss them, but I have to look forward now to cars. It is going to be very exciting. I will focus to next year and do the best I can there too, so hopefully I can make some good results. I have been the youngest to win in the Junior and the youngest in the Senior in DKM, so it has been a really good two years with CRG. The championship was really good, just the last final now was not as we expected, but I will focus to car racing next year and we will see where we go. This was probably my last race in karting, I will probably do some training in karting but I do not know if I will do some more racing.”

GOOD WIN FOR HAVERKORT IN OK-JUNIOR

CRG has secured a good one-two in OK-Junior thanks to the victory of the Dutch Kas Haverkort on CRG-Iame run by CRG Keijzer Racing and the second place taken by Hugo Sasse on CRG-Iame run by CRG TB Racing Team. The final classification of the Championship sees CRG and Zanardi placing 8 chassis by CRG in the top 10 of the final classification.
Haverkort arrived in Lonato only one point clear of Sasse, but the fifth place in the first final allowed him to hit the big target, as Sasse could not go beyond the ninth place. The victory of Race-1 went to the French Hadrien David on Zanardi-Iame, while the Swiss Leandro Anderruti won Race-2 on Maranello-TM. Haverkort was second this time around, Sasse seventh, Donar Nils Mundin eighth on Kalì-Kart and David ninth.

Haverkort has scored a victory in Kerpen and two in Wackersdorf in DKM. “Very good victory – a radiant Kas Haverkort stated after taking the Junior’s title – , Lonato is a nice track. It has been a good win in the championship, I would like to thank my sponsors, my team CRG Keijzer Racing, CRG, my mum and dad and all the people supporting me.”

DOUBLE WIN FOR BOS IN KZ2 KART CUP

The Dutch driver of CRG Holland Jeroen Bos secured a stunning double win in KZ2 Kart Cup on CRG-TM. These two superb victories placed him on the third position of the Championship. The title was won by the Austrian David Detmers, who took two second places in Lonato and pipped Julian Muller.

Among the quickest CRG drivers in Lonato, the French Emilien Denner took a great third place on the wet on Kalì-Kart-TM, in his first race on the wet. He then closed a very tricky Race-2 – due to the rain, in fourth place.

THE BRIGGS KART CHAMPIONSHIP STARTING ON A HIGH
The new entry level grade by CRG has met a lot of interest in the first tests and two promotional races ahead of season 2018.

The Entry level project by CRG called Briggs Kart Championship moved its first steps and all indications obtained so far have been very positive.

The official debut of the CRG FS4 Karts pushed by the 4Strokes Briggs & Stratton engine has taken place last September 30th in Pomposa, when more than 70 motorsport enthusiasts had the chance to test the kart on track. The FS4 Karts by CRG have been protagonist again in the weekend of October 7-8 in an invite race promoted by Endas in occasion of the National Finals in Corridonia.

Following these two events, 15 drivers and some journalists challenged each other in a promotional support race to the Rental Kart Contest by CRG at the circuit of Lignano on October 15th. All these early experiences on track confirmed the goodness of the project and all the drivers gave positive feedback, highlighting in particular the great strong points of the Kart devised by CRG: it is definitely fun to drive, thanks to the reduced weight of the “racing” chassis (that weighs only 70kg including engine and tyres) and to the excellent performance of the engine, two highlights that are combined with its ease of use and very low running costs.

The engine does not need any maintenance for a lot of hours, and only some tuning is allowed on the chassis without any chance to replace axle shafts, hubs, spindles and other components. These features allow everybody to manage this kart on track without the help of technicians or professionals, which contributes to keep running costs low.

One of the strong points of the project is also the competitive activity around these karts. CRG has devised a series of local events on medium-small circuit where the presence of entry level practitioners is higher. This is to reach out to the highest possible number of karting enthusiasts and to involve them in these competitions.

To make the competition more appealing, each race will award a score that will be valid for the National Raking. This will allow the strongest drivers to take part in a National Final and an International Final open to the best drivers qualified in the Briggs & Stratton events from all over the world.

Currently, the name of the first 8 official dealers has been announced, but further sale points will follow in order to reach a capillary sales network with 10-12 resellers covering the whole national territory.

Regarding communication and customer care, CRG has already been active on the social channels (on FaceBook at /briggskartchampionship.com) and the official website (www.briggskartcjampionship.com) will go live soon. The racing activity will be unveiled in November and it will cover 4 national zones: north, center, south and Sicily.

As said, these regional events will be followed by a National Final and an International Final, both directly managed by CRG.
