Impossible to name them all, just have a look at the entry list to see for yourselves. But when we say that Europe’s – and most likely the world’s – best are in Wackersdorf (Germany) the coming weekend to dispute the European KZ1-KZ2 & KF2 Championship, we truly mean it.

Following the cancellation of the 3 European rounds of the World Championship, this event – together with the World Cup for KZ1-KZ2 scheduled in Sarno (Italy) on 2nd September – is the most anticipated race the CIK calendar has to offer in the old continent this year. Mainly because - as a result of KF concept scarce fortune – over the past few years gearbox racing has taken on the role as the outright, uncontested, primary source of excitement in the sport of karting.
To give you some facts to back up all of the above, the European KZ1 Championship sees 38 drivers on starting grid – the biggest KZ1 line up in all events and championships of the season so far.
In the European KZ2 Championship, the entry list goes up to 122 drivers (with a big increase from the 2011 edition), just like in the first round of the European KF2 Championship.
With the programme starting on Thursday afternoon with Qualifying Practice for KZ2 and KF2, the German circuit is ready to host a truly action-packed weekend.
